Your Old Droog - Get The Paper

  • Artist: Your Old Droog
  • Track: Get The Paper
  • Producer: EL RTNC
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

Thanks to the speculation about Your Old Droog's identity when he first began building buzz, Nas has become the cliché reference point for people describing the Coney Island rhymesayer's style, but his jocular tone and left-of-center, pop referential lyrics are equally reminiscent of a certain trio from his home borough. So it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to hearing him spit over a sample of the Beastie Boys' Pass the Mic on new promo single Get the Paper. Over EL RTNC's flip of the aforementioned sample, the Russian-American mic-wrecker delivers a stream of witty, free-associative rhymes that would make Ad-Rock, Mike D. and the late MCA proud. This record is just a loosie, but fans can hear more on Droog's self-titled studio debut, out now in stores and online.
