The book of Maffew gets a new chapter with Brooklyn emcee Maffew Ragazino’s new street album Brownsville’s Jesus, presented by PRIVILEGE Music and Worldwide Paper Gang. The album features 20 new original tracks, and has appearances on the mic and behind the boards from the likes of Action Bronson, Troy Ave, Heems and Kool AD (formerly of Das Racist), Harry Fraud, and Bink! Ragazino remains an unsung and stalwart purveyor of raw rhyme in an era where the term “lyrical” elicits eye rolls.
There’s bravery in Ragazino’s commitment to keeping the proverbial faith when it seems so many are moving in another direction. Reward him, and your ears, with a listen by streaming or downloading Brownsville’s Jesus below.
As a bonus watch him prove that he has the answers with Spade-O from Major Figgas on Sway’s show.
