Favorites:

  • “Get Money” feat. Tray Pizzy
  • “Bossin” feat. JY & Billy Bada$$
  • “Ballad of the Broken”
  • “Riot Music”

As I said in my review for Tray Pizzy’s 50 First Dates, the New York hip-hop scene is one of my favorites to watch develop right now. Long ago are the days where there was a strong NY presence in hip-hop and there for a while that area was heavily influenced by the south. With the artists I’ve been exposed to as of the past year, that has changed. Their sound is becoming something else and they all work together and support each other. Dapa Don is one of these artists you need to listen to when I mention New York’s present hip-hop scene. He delivered a solid FOOD album last year and follows it up with the sequel this year.

It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard new music from North Carolina’s J. Draughon. The MC got his health in order, which is understandable, and took his time getting back in the booth. He hits us today with this new track produced by Ace Dizzy Flow that is appropriately titled. You can hear the hunger in his voice as he’s trying to get back to a rhyming state he was in just a few years ago. Stream available after the break.
