Your Old Droog "Your Old Droog" (EP Stream)

I tend to be far attached from social media and what's "buzzing," but even I caught wind of people chattering about this mysterious rapper by the name of Your Old Droog, who people speculated could actually be Nas, recording under a different name (for label reasons). Yet, no one aside from the homie DJ Skizz knew the artist the internet was talking about, lol. Now that the rumors have been debunked by all major news outlets & people with common sense, there's a bit of a love/hate relationship when you mention the name. Many artists have tried innovative ways to get on, which isn't to say this was planned in advance, but people do tend to form their own opinions - that's how this all happened in the first place. I haven't seen an interview yet, so I can't say how he's carried the comparisons, that might sway how I feel about him as an artist, but when it comes down to the music, any comparison to Nas means you've done a lot of things right. In the meantime, you can stream the EP below & form your own opinion. Again, I dig the EP but I'm more about energy, so the jury is still out on this one. I'm curious to see how other artists (producers) gravitate or nah.
