Do you remember this guy who made the hype with his eponymous mixtape in 2014 because everyone thought it was Nas under another name? Your Old Droog is still one of the most underrated rappers in the game. His first album is an excellent Eastcoast pure underground hip-hop record. I'm a fan of East Coast Hip-Hop and especially Brooklyn Rap. Screw your headphones on your head. This is not an advice, but rather a warning because you are not ready for the firepower that "PACKS" will bring ... read more

Nothing particularly cutting edge happening here, instead this is a solid hip hop album with some soulful flourishes that honestly could have been released any time over the last 20 years and found an audience.

Your Old Droog is not a rapper, this dude is an EMCEE. And he gives you all the qualities a Great EMCEE should have, Flow, Wordplay, Dope voice, punchlines, content etc. The production on this works great for Droog as well.

This album has some bars, man. Droog is a fantastic lyricist and his flows are sharp throughout. The production is very clean and not too busy so that his words can take the spotlight.

I do wish, though, that Droog tackled some more ambitious song topics on this thing - he's more than talented enough to put some really ... read more

Even though I think more credit is due to the producers of this album, Your Old Droog pleasantly surprised me with Packs. His old school, east coast style flow (which is very reminiscent of R.A. the Rugged Man, and even MF DOOM at times) is an aspect that I really appreciated from this album; that style of flow is something that I think could be utilized more in modern hip hop, and the only other recent rapper I can think of that's used it recently is Apathy. The Anthony Jeselnik skits were ... read more

Esse disco é fogo. Um Hip Hop cru, direto, encaixado. É o típico som de NY entregue com muita honestidade, fazendo jus a tudo que esta sonoriadde tem a oferecer. A produção chama muito a atenção, um som orgânico, cadenciado de forma bem intensa, timbres bem crus e até algumas linhas de baixo carregados de funk e groove. Sobre isso YourOldDroog e cia cospem versos com igual intensidade, com bastante acidez e irreverência. Algns ... read more
