Styles P, Joey Bada$$ & Droog Reload The Clipse On A Black Milk Beat (Audio)
Fifteen years ago, Pusha T and No Malice kicked in the door to the industry with “Grindin’.” The Lord Willin’ single received some of the most captivating Neptunes production of all time, that took the Brothers Thornton’s Virginia Beach attitudes, and projected them upon the world.
Your Old Droog finds himself on his own precipice of something big. The Brooklynite has been crafting ’90s-styled messages that reflect a New York City perceived by a Metrocard-carrying MC. “Just Rhymin'” is one of Droog’s biggest looks thus far, as he is joined by borough brother Joey Bada$$ and The LOX’ Styles P. With a chorus and a few additional bars paying respect to “Grindin’,” Droog, Holiday Styles, and Badmon hop on an extremely East Coast 1990s-sounding Black Milk beat. In a song that makes no pretensions about bigger themes or high concept, these three MCs may be just rhyming about wack peers and changing local scenery, but they do so with tons of style and finesse.
