This was a dope little EP released by Your Old Droog as a precursor to the Packs album. This is definitely not the throw-away songs that didn’t make the cut. This is a dope collection of songs to prepare you. There aren’t a whole lot of tracks with only 6 and an instrumental version of each one. The beats are pretty decent overall. The rhymes are definitely pretty good as Your Old Droog has always been dope. How can you be confused with Nas and not be good? I’d say the highlight of this project is “Just Rhyming” with Joey Badass and Styles P. The beat is so menacing. It almost reminds me of some old 90’s DJ Premier “NY State Of Mind” -type style. Droog shows us he can definitely flow not only on this song, but on the whole project. This was a good project and you might even get stuck on this one for awhile before you check out the Packs album.
OVERALL RATING: 4 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
