[Audio] New York Hip-Hop Drop

With the South & West coast taking over our local radio stations, I felt it was necessary to give my blog viewers a taste of some real NY hip-hop. I feel as if one's rhyming ability is overshadowed by their beat selection. If you manage to come across a catchy beat with radio appeal, you have a strong chance of becoming a known artist. Being that I'm from New York I felt it was time to spotlight some of NY's legendary artists still puttin' it down today. Included in this post are new tracks from Ali Vegas, Blaq Poet, Cappadonna, DJ Premier, Freddie Foxx (Bumpy Knuckles), Keith Murray, Nas, The RZA, Ghostface Killah, & Kool G Rap. Just to be sure every borough was represented, I threw in a bonus Jay-Z joint.

Nas - Something Foul

Nas - Fear of Mandingo

Jay-Z - My President Is Black (DC Mix)

The RZA ft. Ghostface & Kool G Rap - Whar

Freddie Foxx (Bumpy Knuckles) - Yes You Can

Ali Vegas - Everyday Iz War (Prod. by DJ Premier)

Blaq Poet - Ain't Nuttin' Changed (Prod. by DJ Premier)

Cappadonna - Somebody's Got To Go (ft. Ghetto Philharmonic)

Keith Murray - We Don't Play (ft. Infared) (Prod. by Pav Bundy)
