Recreating tracks from Afeni’s son can either go really bad or really well. In the case of Palermo Stone’s “Run The Streetz,” the results are a success.
Built around an interpolation from All On Eyez On Me that’s updated with a more mellowed out sound, the Pittsburgh rapper flips Pac’s approach a bit, commending the female in his life for holding him down – rather than telling her to fall back on the nosiness like the original. Essentially, this track is for the guys lucky enough to have a sane lady in their life. God bless ‘em.
Palermo’s upcoming project The 2nd Coming drops on September 9.
