ILLA GHEE-Social Graffiti


Where the hell has this guy been hiding?

Answer: Brooklyn.

Apparently, he’s been around for a while and served three years on a drug charge–in addition to appearing on a DJ Kay Slay mixtape.

YOUR OLD DROOG-Self Titled EP

If you google Your Old Droog, you’ll see him compared to Nas quite a bit–but it’s mostly based on his delivery, not his content. (Also, he’s been signed by Nas–leading many to speculate that he actually is Nas, in disguise.) His identity, largely secret, is far more playful than Nas–but comparable in terms of skill. I was interested in Droog because, hey, any rapper who wears such a strong Clockwork Orange influence has to have something going on, right?

Right.

B.O.B.-No Genre 2

I was a huge Bobby Ray fan back before he got a major label deal, and I loved his first major album.  But his second…Not so much.  Maybe it’s just that he’s shown us what he can do, and he blew his best bars on his come-up tapes.  I dunno.

No Genre 2 is the sequel to his famous No Genre mixtape.  If you liked that one, you’ll like this one–you just won’t find as surprising.  It’s very good–better than most of what I get sent to me every day.  But there’s a fire missing.  There’s nothing new here.  Some rappers amaze us early but never top that first album (DMX, Nelly), others can sustain album after album (Eminem, Jay-Z).  I’m not sure which one B.O.B. is yet, but I’m willing to keep rooting for him.
