THE SONG: EPMD.
WHY IT’S HOT… Hit Boy and Nas keep their recent winning streak alive with “EPMD”. Named after the famed Long Island rap duo; their entry on the “Judas And The Black Messiah” soundtrack finds Nas deep in his ghetto militant/Don/griot bag, attacking Big Tech, corrupt law enforcement, and the Mob. The sparse and edgy Hit Boy beat underneath the vocals provides the perfect sonic complement to Nas’ controlled verbal assault. I think these two need to do another album soon. Until then, enjoy this.
