Following on from the debut vinyl releases of Action Bronson, Meyhem Lauren, Timeless Truth, Epidemic, Da Buze Bruvaz and uMaNg we have this, the jewel in the 2014 Herring crown. B-Boys and B-Girls, we present for you… Your Old Droog.
Famed for so-called experts being convinced he was Nasty Nas in disguise, this Coney Island MC & artist has reeped valuable column inches in high and low brow publications alike. From The New Yorker, to NY Times, The Guardian to MTV [it’s not for us to say which ones are high and which are low!!] dude has been makin headlines cause, he sounds like what every true Hip Hop head wishes Nas still sounded like – a huge compliment, no less.
Last week when Nas was asked by MTV what he thought of the Your Old Droog situation, he conveniently forgot he knew anything about the whole saga, speaking volumes [up to 11] in the process and keeping the hardcore Hip Hop conspiracy theorists salivating.
Nas or not [not!], Droog killed it with his debut EP produced by himself and the extremely dope RTNC [famed for his beats for Timeless Truth, among others]. What we have here for the heads is the 2xLP which is comprised of the full EP plus 4 extra tracks, the full EP instrumentals and a sick bonus white label 12″ with 3 extra tracks and 2 inserts. HUGE!
