Your Old Droog

could've sworn Droog made the cut in one of the last couple of classes. apparently i was wrong. total oversight on XXL's part because I can't think of a rapper more deserving of the buzz that he's still getting to this day. while he came up on the back of sounding like that Nas-era of NY hip-hop, his ear for great production has allowed him to branch out into his own territory and define himself with a unique sound. a real embodiment of old school meets new school, Droog was fairly prolific in 2017 releasing (imo) his best solo record so far in Packs and a very strong collaborative effort with RATKING's Wiki.



Strange U

if you're a Doom fan, check him out. that's all i've got.



Joyner Lucas

alright. here's where i admit i was wrong. a few years ago i first heard of Joyner Lucas, it was through his song Ross Capicchioni, a conceptual masterpiece that very quickly went viral due to the spectacular true story and brilliant first person video that accompanied it. after that, however, I felt Joyner failed to wow me again. it was like he said, "alright there, i'm a good rapper" and resorted back to relying on gimmicks like simply rapping fast or relying on his production. however, after finally getting around listening to his latest record 508-507-2209, i'll say, I was wrong. everything i thought the guy was capable of, he puts onto this record. i'm just going to let the songs do the rest of the talking.

That's why I didn't put him up tbh, he borrows way too much from DOOM. Still solid but I'd rather throw on Keys to the Kuffs or something like that.

i don't know. maybe he does, but i still really enjoy his album. there's not many people who can mimic Doom's style that way, especially not well enough to make it worthwhile listening to.

Emay

So why isn't this dude the king of MB yet? Get on it, kids. Lyrically thoughtful and introspective, punchy, dreamy, and dark beats, cool album covers, this dude's got it all.

So that's why his albums are for sale in Canadian dollars. It all makes sense now.
