Outsiders beware – the streets of the Rotten Apple hold countless dangers for the unwary traveler. Don't take it from me, though; take it from J.D. Of Duality, the Hollis, N.Y. Rider previously heard flowing alongside reader favorite K. Sparks on cuts like Soul Food, and Three Card Monte. On the inaugural leak off his forthcoming street album, the up-and-comer rejoins forces with his Queens cohort over a head-nodding, sampled beat by Pajozo (the producer behind both of the aforementioned tracks). While the headliner spends his verses describing the predators hiding in the shadows of his home city, Sparks seems more concerned about the annoyances lurking in the corners of his inbox: “Needy rappers in the game act like your long-lost cousins... they send so many messages I send 'em to the spam folder.” Subject matter aside, though, both collaborators turn in characteristically dope performances on the mic. Fiending for more? Of course you are – though J.D.'s latest mixtape doesn't drop till May, fellow Retro Junkies can rest assured we'll bring you all the latest tunes.
