With the distraction of his debatable identity finally put to rest in the premiere of his series, Just Rhymin With Skizz, Big Apple rapper Your Old Droog continues to consistently release material, following up with his new track “Hoodie Weather” featuring the one and only Prodigy of Mobb Deep.
The Marco Polo-produced track features a blissed-out guitar riff as the main sample, creating a subtle backdrop for both Droog and Prod to really spit over, blurring the lines between a musical piece and straight poetry where the two are able to articulate each syllable throughout. The newcomer sounds particularly clean alongside Prodigy, who bodies the track as if it’s another day at the office.
It appears that over the course of the summer Droog has really found his niche as an artist by utilizing consistent beat selection that caters particularly to his flow and familiar voice. Check the track below as Droog’s debut performance tomorrow, September 3 at Webster Hall draws closer, and the young rapper continues to make serious waves
