Last night in Brooklyn, Run the Jewels played a show as part of Northside Festival. During their set, they brought out Nas to do his classic “Made You Look.” It’s not the first time the Mass Appeal founder has come out to a Run the Jewels event; he performed his new track “The Season” at the RTJ2 release party. Check out the footage of Nas during Run the Jewels after the jump.

Despite residing from essentially the same place (Coney Island, Brooklyn) and sharing virtually the same exact cultural background (Ukrainian-American) I never really messed with rising rapper Your Old Droog all that much. I mean, in the interest of full disclosure and not frontin’, I think dude is super talented and a great altogether MC but frankly I’m not “feeling” it, you know? I always find the beats to be dated and seriously lackluster and I can never quite relate to Your Old Droog. Like, who is Droog? But this track right here, with its super kitschy and ultra NYC-indebted song title, is right up my alley, fam. Droog delivers the goods with “Unlimited MetroCard” which is produced by the always reliable Statik Selektah. Check out “Unlimitated MetroCard” after the jump and peep Statik’s new album Lucky 7 dropping this July.

While Bobby Shmurda and his GS9 mates are still locked up behind bars that hasn’t stopped them from going full Gucci Mane on everybody by dropping tracks while incarcerated. Little is known as far as their legal situation (although it is said that their bail has been denied and many attempts to revoke the decision have been put in place) but as far as music they’ve been steadily releasing some new material to keep their names buzzing in them streets (and blogs, I guess.) You can peep a new Bobby Shmurda cut in “Get a Room for Ya” after the jump. It features GS9 mate Rowdy Rebel and one Abillyon.

Drake-If-Youre-Reading-This

UK grime artist Skepta has been generating some hype over the last few months, despite being active within the UK scene for over the last ten years. With a Drake shoutout and Kanye West’s “All Day” performance (in which Ye gives Skepta a shoutout as well) the 32-year-old veteran is finally getting that much needed (and deserved) recognition. Thankfully Brooklyn’s Flathbush ZOMBiES aren’t ignorant and have certainly been paying close attention to the UK grime scene as they have Skepta join them for “Redeye to Paris.” This track goes and we hope our American readers will check out some more Skepta material after hearing this. Check out “Redeye to Paris” after the jump.

Joey Bada$$’ debut full length studio album B4.DA.$$ is officially out now and to celebrate the release (as well as his birthday) he is dropping a freebie with “Born Day (AquariUS).” The track finds Joey going off, sounding jubilant and uplifted. Produced by frequent collaborator Statik Selektah “Born Day (AquariUS)” will not be on B4.DA.$$ but it is certainly worthy of a listen. Check it out after the jump.
