Your imaginary Halloween is over, rap fans.
Your Old Droog is not Nas.
The previously unknown and unseen rapper revealed himself in a viral video titled, "Just Rhymin' With Skizz," Tuesday (August 26) and he's nothing like you imagined.
While it's true that the rapper with intricate lyrics may sound like the legendary Illmatic MC, he looks nothing like him. The impish, bearded wordsmith is gruff, obviously laser-focused and, surprise, surprise, not even African-American.
“Laid low for some time, made sure every line tight/Sh-t was looking bleak until I got my mind right/Shine the light, the reach of these other rappers is finite,” he raps in a vinyl-laden house studio.
Now that all eyes are on the Coney Island spitter, who draws his lyrical inspiration from the likes of Big L and Kool G Rap, it'll only be a matter of time before he gets his own shine for just being himself.
“I see all this sh-t as a compliment," Droog told the New Yorker in reference to the Nas comparisons. “I mean, I should take it as a compliment, right?”
