Your Old Droog’s self-titled album is out now and yesterday the Droog dropped the visuals for his “Nutty Bars” cut. So we suppose it’s only right that he finally gets his just due by appearing on Shade 45’s radio show Sway in the Morning. During his time with Sway Your Old Droog took on the show’s infamous “5 Fingers of Death” freestyle segment and needless to say the Brooklyn emcee went in. Check it out after the jump.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you already know young Vince Staples is one of the best new emcees out right now, easily. He’s a true spitter. And as if we didn’t 100% already know this, Vince Staples went and snapped all over Missy Elliott’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” for five minutes on Sway in the Morning. Off the top too, mind you. Go ahead and watch the video because this kid deserves the recognition; respect. After the jump.
ATL alternative Raury drops this hammer on Sway’s show, declaring himself a unique breed of artist with an

Watch this clip and tell me Common isn’t still — after 20 years — one of the best rap artists who can freestyle spontaneous verses at the drop of a beat. The lengthy interview is respect due to the Chi-town legend, who’s making the press rounds for his 10th album Nobody’s Smiling, and the freestyle is at the very end. Check the video after the jump.
