New York’s alright if you like slam-poetry elevator muzak

P-Lo ft. Larry June – Good
(From Good single; 2022)

First new P-Lo single of 2022. Conclusive proof that Bay Area Rap is one of the only sources of Real Hip-Hop™ left: there’s more scratching on this than there is on any New York Rap song of 2022.

Bonus beats: lemme put 5 on it with a quinary of quality. Mini playlist of my top 5 favourite NorCal Rap songs of 2022 so far.

Young Jr – Bird Walk
Seiji Oda – WAKE UP
Ezale – Ironic
Stunnaman02 ft. Lil’ Kayla – Roll Wit It
A-Wax – Streets Callin’
