Classic hip hop is back!
The Mysterious Rapper Your old droog surprised fans with his new track featuring a verse from rapper MF DOOM. In an ode to successful high school dropouts everywhere, ‘Dropout Boogie’ gives that spunky feel that we lacked in hip hop. Trading verses with the Supervillain himself, MF DOOM gives us the nifty bars he’s known for.
Produced by Edan, who effortlessly changes the perfect New York-style beat, the song is definitely a summer hit. Released as limited edition 7-inch vinyl on Nature sounds who constantly releases classics from his favorite emcees. This collaboration comes almost a year after MF DOOM’s untimely passing. The track makes us feel like the villain is never gone, showcasing his rapping skills with Droog and the art of KEO XMEN.
Your Old Droog breaks it down by giving me that ’90s MC vibe with the proper solidity and enunciation in his voice that only the greats possess. Providing hard-hitting finishes and bars that feel familiar, it’s hard to pin down where it’s from other than Brooklyn. With bars like these it won’t matter, but Your Old Droog, which means ‘Your Old Friend’, is from Brooklyn through Ukraine.
The principal tried to keep me out of the hall like Pete Rose.
The player blew them all up with a six
Four bogies and more licks, alcoholics
Yesterday E&J brought out rum today
Banging bottles as warriors come out and play
These nosy kids were pedaling meds
We sold high grade like nerds, I paid to solve a square root for me
DOOM does what it is known for by bringing us witty and witty bars that grace the word perfection. Dropping hidden gems throughout the verse, which is his forte while reminiscing about the past, we definitely miss his organic creativity.
Imagining cocking the hammer and letting it explode
Excusable then with cameras and then getting the pass
And that is garbage
They deserve worse than a nightly meddling
Irate villain is still a gentleman
While the song is a new hymn for dropouts, there is a message there, as usual, as Droog continues the DOOM legacy. “School is not for everyone,” says Droog. “I dropped out of high school and community college twice! However, the GED was good … stay confident and go your own way. “
