Your Old Droog Is A Throwback. It’s Only Right He Freestyles On Camcorder. (Video)
Your Old Droog is a brilliant time machine back to a place in Hip-Hop and New York City associated with the 1990s. The Brooklyn, New Yorker uses a slang, conjures images, and favors beats that very much align with a mid-1990s movement heard in Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, and Gang Starr Foundation.
Appearing in the Top Shelf freestyle series, Y.O.D. surrounds himself with vintage Polo Rugby’s, boomboxes, and other gear as he kicks some witty, throwback-style rhymes. The whole affair is filmed on gritty Camcorder, bringing the whole effect to multi-media. Even the way Droog leans into the mic suggests just what kind of MC he aims to be.
