I’ve never been shopping in New Orleans but I just picked up great shopping advice, thanks to Nesby Phips and Curren$y’s “Rubenstein Bros.” Artists have always considered themselves to be the rap version of Mr. Black but I feel kind of solid taking cues from these two guys since Nesby’s always shown an appreciation for Bo Jacksons and other Trainer models and Spitta’s quietly but consistently help set Hip-Hop’s dress code for several seasons now. On “Rubenstein Bros.,” the two former high school classmates guide the tour bus along New Orleans’ Canal Street to the historic haberdashery shop frequented by businessmen and dope boys alike and the ride’s only accentuated by the use of the Geto Boys’ “Mind Playing Tricks On” being used as the backing soundtrack.
Nesby’s Ode 2 Old School & Classics releases on Wednesday, February 15.
