Home of the Greats

A triple dose of nostalgic shit from a couple of New York’s finest, courtesy of Spine Magazine.

Cormega f/ Styles P & Prodigy – “Dirty Game”

NYGz – “Ready?”

First up, a double shot from NYC personified, DJ Premier. It’s feeling like ’96 again hearing Sickle Cell P on some Primo goodness, and Cormega proves why he was once considered one of The Apple’s most rotten. NYGz are yet-again forgettable over Preem’s vintage cuts.

Rakim – “Working for You”

It’s been a decade since Rakim last solo joint and more than twenty years since he changed the game alongside Eric B. But this week, The God MC returns to Wal-Mart shelves with The Seventh Seal. My expectations for the project were low after the failed resurrection with Dr. Dre and Aftermath, yet The 18th Letter shows that he still ain’t no joke with this album cut featuring a soulful Jake One production. Recognize a real God when you see one.
