Harry Powder’s back serving up new work in form of two videos – one for “Hurt” and another for his “New York City” cut with Raekwon and N.O.R.E. – in anticipation of his upcoming album’s release. We’ve all heard artists speaking of bringing NY back to the forefront and Troy Ave may/may not find different success than others who’ve made the claim before him. But his whole approach – the delivery, the wordplay and his whole panache – screams “that old New York,” especially when he’s heard alongside The Chef and Noreaga. But his is not an outdated vibe; Troy’s unmistakeably the new old New York the rap world’s yearned for.
New York City: The Album drops on November 4th.
