Kendrick Lamars new single, “I”, is a little pop (ish) but that’s expected when you sample “That Lady” from the Isley Brothers for the 800th time. I can’t complain though. It’s his first single since 2012. Take a listen below and let us know what you think. https://soundcloud.com/topdawgent/i-1
9/11 will forever be marked as the day that the Twin Towers fell in what was the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor. So with all respect let’s have a moment of silence……… ………. ……… Ok. However on this day Jay-Z dropped what could arguably be his greatest album, The Blueprint. Many hip […]

That came out wrong. I mean rappers I’ve photographed. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of photographing some of my favorite performers/rappers over the past few years. Since no one really cares but me, I thought I’d use the site as a way to force-feed it into your eyeballs. I’m not the best photographer but I […]

So, we can finally put this story to rest….Your Old Droog is a white dude from Brooklyn, like he said from the beginning, and Nas apparently has nothing to do with him. He used the ominous gossip contrived by the media to push his career ahead a few steps; and rightfully so. While Droog obviously digs […]

2014 has been a big year for Mr. Nasir Jones. Without an album dropping he has remained relevant by touring and celebrating the 20th anniversary of Illmatic. Now we have the trailer to his film documenting the historic album, Time Is Illmatic, and out of everything this year this is the one thing I am […]
In the Goodie Mob days Big Gipp was that dude. I’m not sure what made him stand out to me while others were checking for Cee-Lo. So needless to say I am a little disappointed in the way his solo career turned out. And I’m not sure if this is the song that will turn […]

After 30 years in the game LL Cool J still has something to say. And although his bars don’t make you say ooooohhhhhhhh on this track, it still shines as a testament that he still relevant. Especially in a game that rappers are lucky to last one quarter in. On this track he brings in […]

Well what do we have here?? Your Old Droog is going to not only show his face, but he will also rap a taste. This has been one of the great mysteries of 2014, just who exactly is Droog? Many including myself swear up and down that it is Nasir Jones, while others […]
