The Hood Favorite is back with his new single.

The jury might be out on who is the current heir to New York’s hip-hop throne, but everyone pining for the elusive crown believes that they are the rightful owner: Rocky has a bulletproof case; Rich The Kid is constantly campaigning for himself; Joey Bada$$ is a quiet assassin. And while he’s not there yet, one artist is busy fending off fellow crabs in the NY bucket while making his own case: Jay Critch.

Signed to RTK’s Universal Imprint, Rich Forever, alongside Famous Dex, Critch has been frequenting New York’s underground circuit since he began making noise in 2016. By conflating new wave accents with a gritty, classic Empire State core, the Hood Favorite artist is here blending the old with the new to form his own wave.

Part of his allure and steady rise can be contributed to his raw product, sure, but it’s also due to his consistent output. Always honing his craft, Jay has come through today (March 26th) with his latest single, “Bully.”

Released via SoundCloud, the new Jay Critch track deftly exemplifies why he’s one of the hottest artists bubbling right now: he makes infectious music that sores on the wings of pensive lyricism — a rare feat that many artists struggle to straddle.
