Your Old Droog sounds like Nas. Your Old Droog sounds like The Game. Your Old Droog Sounds like Nas mixed with The Game. Your Old Droog sounds like blah, blah, blah.
That’s what you’re sure to hear in barbershop banter from the Boogie Down to Brooklyn, but here’s the truth: Your Old Droog sounds like Your Old Droog. That’s all you really need to know.
On his debut, eponymous EP, Droog blends golden era greatness with New York City grittiness into a molotov cocktail and lights a match, holding the bottle over listeners’ heads for the duration of the project. Does he have your attention? We hope so.
There are no breaks, just bars— nutty ones at that. The production is seamless. The only thing that may prevent you from listening to the project start to finish is the number of rewind-worthy verses. While we’re still trying to unravel the who, what, when, where, why, and how of all things Droog, we’re completely cool being left in the dark— as long as we’ve got his music to keep us company.
