London has been warned. Your Old Droog is coming through the Jazz Cafe in Camden this June. Check out his new single, "Hidden Persuaders," above via SoundCloud and check out the full size promotional art for the concert below.
Your Old Droog is a streetwise storyteller who's "Never bought a beat" and acknowledges, "They want me to be the next Eminem." Droog's debut EP dropped just 10 months ago, and he's already asserted himself as one of the best lyricists in the game. This track may not be one of his best, but it's still more than solid. The DJ Skizz production is built on a funky jazz groove that almost sounds like a cross between Jimi Hendrix and Iron Butterfly. The rapper also sings on this track, laying down smooth-as-Hennessy vocals with no auto-tune.
The song is available exclusively in the DJ Skizz BQE Collector's Set on Slice of Spice Records.
