Your Old Droog just wants to be himself. After drawing comparisons to Nas earlier this year, the Coney Island-bred rapper is releasing his own self titled album -- so fans know for sure, it's him.
“There was so many dope f–kin’ rappers out there,” he said during the show. “Now, it’s so much trash, some dope sh–t come out, it’s like, ‘Yo, it can’t be dope on it’s own; somebody else did it.'”
Your Old Droog, the album, features 10 tracks from Droog's original -- also, self-titled EP -- two previously released songs and six brand new ones. El RTNC, DJ Skizz, and Droog himself served as the project's primary producers. Head over to NPR to stream Your Old Droog now.
Watch Nas shut down theories that he's Your Old Droog.
