Royal Flush – Iced Down Medallions
The Lox sat down with Jenny Boom Boom for an exclusive interview with VladTV, where they imagined what Hip-Hop would be like if the Notorious B.I.G. was still alive. They all say that the industry would be completely different, and believe that only the “nice” East Coast emcees would be allowed in the game.
Styles P also adds to the conversation, saying “the gates became way, way more open” for all types of artists to get in the game after Biggie’s passing.
We knew this was coming. After previewing the new, J Dilla-produced joint “The Season” at a Run The Jewels album release event in Brooklyn last night.
Essentially a freestyle over the late, great Detroit producer’s “Gobstopper” beat (included on his legendary album Donuts), “The Season” includes sung and rapped vocals from the Queensbridge MC. He name checks the Prince of Wales, Jay Z and Jay Electronica, and coins the phrase “Nasty Nas-itis” along the way, showing again why he’s one of the most revered vocalists of all time.
