New York hip-hop is strong although many people don’t know. East Harlem’s own Dave East is one of the front runners of the new hip-hop wave in New York City. Recently being signed to rap legend, Nas, Dave East has been making a lot of noise on the scene and in the streets. Here he drops his own rendition of The Weeknd’s popular “Tell Your Friends”. This ‘eastmix’ has the Harlem rep spitting some aggressive bars with that storyteller approach to gain your attention. Listen up.
Fabolous is one of the few emcees from New York City who has remained a relevant figure in hip-hop. I’ve been a loyal Fab fan since I was about 12 years old and he was hanging out in Breevort Projects still. However, I’m not gonna sit here and act like every thing after “Breathe” has been fire (cause that’s not the case). The Brooklyn emcee has been up and down with hits since his “From Nothing To Something” album. Even with the hype of TiNC 2 & 3, along with The Soul Tape 1 & 2 and a couple radio singles, Fab has been swinging for a miss in my opinion. As we wait for “Loso’s Way 2” Fab brings us “The Soul Tape 3” set to drop on Christmas, December 25th, 2013. I’m not really excited for another mixtape, instead I’m waiting for another album not filled with mediocre punchlines and a lazy flow. But its something I’ve grown accustomed. My opinion. #TheSuiteLife
