Your Old Droog has returned with the song “Crab Cakes,” produced by The Alchemist and featuring a verse by late Mobb Deep co-founder, Prodigy.
On the song, the Brooklyn rapper drops threatening bars over a hypnotic piano loop. “You know my style official / Like a rottweiler to a shiatsu / You know that I could get you / If I don’t hit you, I could split you, doc can stitch you,” he spits.
Later in the song, Prodigy, who died in 2017, raps about this dedication to hip hop: “To these hardcore hip hop beats / I put my life on the line, like an EKG / I put my life in these lines, yeah, autobiographic / They want me to shut up, my shit is so graphic.”
Last month, Your Old Droog surprise-released his new album Jewelry. It featured contributions from MF Doom, Tha God Fahim, Mach-Hommy and more.
