SORT BY Relevancy
There is confusion in rap right now. The story centers around Nas and a mysterious character named Your Old Droog. Droog is currently faceless, but not voiceless as his self-titled EP is drawing strong comparisons to Nas. So strong that many are suggesting Droog is Nas’ alter ego*.
For the record, eskay says he’s met Your Old Droog before. eskay’s a pretty believable guy. One of the guys at Complex claims he’s met guy before, too, and that it’s not God’s Son. Others have chimed in as well. The catch is no one can really recall anything distinctive about the guy but, as a writer who meets a lot of rappers, I can attest these rappers do all tend to blend together and become faces in the crowd when you meet them at an event or whatever and they hit you with the “please listen to my demo” deal.

Well, the mystery of Your Old Droog has come to a close.
Or has it?
The mysterious MC, who many have insisted is a personification of an intricate wool-over-your-eyes plot by legendary lyricist Nas, has seemingly emerged as his own man. Two items have been released, just ahead of the Brooklyn upstart's "debut" performance, September 3 at Webster Hall.
The videos, one a well-produced in-studio session alongside long-time NYC producer DJ Skizz, and another, a casual freestyle caught in a darkened club, both make for a compelling argument that Your Old Droog is NOT Nas.
But there are those who are STILL not convinced.
Our hosts Manny Faces and Steve Ortiz are on opposite sides of the fence. Listen to them argue it out, and CALL IN with your thoughts.
Also joining us, one of our favorite aritsts, Likwuid! She'll be calling in to talk about her long-awaited, 2 Hungry Bros-produced EP, "Likwuidity: In Depth," featuring folks like DJ Evil Dee, Dylan Dili and Meredith Hansen of the Metropolitan opera(!).
As usual, we'll review and preview some great NY-area hip hop events, and drop some new releases you should know about.
We saw it, but we still kinda don't believe it.
Your Old Droog made his first major public appearance at New York's Webster Hall, clearly proving himself to not be Nas, which conspiracy theorists had suspected for months.
The similar-sounding Brooklynite held it down with a technically sound performance, banters and stage presence. The crowd, even the ones who were disappointed, were impressed at Droog's abilities, both lyrically and performance-wise. In a room full of major media, Your Old Droog showed and proved.
So, we guess the conspiracy theories can rest.
Or can they?
We'll talk about that, and we'll also be speaking with Mtume Gant, who is working toward putting together a short fim project entited "Spit: An homage to the unsung artists of New York City." A frequent performer and recording artist, Gant is looking to create this short film to "unpack the experience that so many artists fall victim to" in their quest for recognition.
We'll spend a little time previewing other shows and of course, take your live calls!
