The talk of bringing New York hip-hop back has been a constant topic for a while now, and many people have given their opinion on who can revive the East Coast sound. A$AP Mob's new video "Trillmatic," should be a breath of fresh air for those yearning for that '90s era style missing in rap at the moment. Featuring A$AP Nast and Method Man, the track features dope production that sounds like it could be placed on an old Nas or Raekwon album.
The video matches the song's style perfectly, from the vintage clothes to the 40 oz. brews featured in it. The backdrop of New York City housing projects and Times Square are shown, very reminiscent of rap videos in the past. A$AP Nast's flow is great on the track, spitting to the beat perfectly. Method Man raps just as good as he did during his '90s days, giving the song that authentic old school vibe. "It's A$AP Meth, quick to kill 'em that's an ASAP death," he spits.
The track will be featured on A$AP Mob's not yet titled new album, which is scheduled for a March 2014 release. For more content on the Harlem crew, watch their hilarious interview alongside Black Hippy, here on Zumic.
