Your Old Droog Combines Basketball, Seinfeld & Electro Funk (Audio)
Your Old Droog will not be pinned down. Over the last 18 months, he has tapped into 90s Hip-Hop, Jazz and Classic Rock as sonic canvases on which to paint his colorful lyrical pictures. Now, he pivots, heads to the 80s and whips up a track that not only conjures Electro Funk, but celebrates several NBA players who got their starts in the decade (Patrick Ewing, Rik Smits), as well as the time period’s dominant TV show, Seinfeld. He even throws in a Ric Flair reference for good measure.
While the track sounds like an original production, the bass line aligns nicely with the funky groove Seinfeld fans heard week in and week out with the theme song, and elements of the song are embedded within toward the end, upon a close listen.
With recognition from Wale and now Droog, Seinfeld’s genius is poised to live on for generations to come in the Hip-Hop nation.
