A lot have been said already from the caption and I must say, I’m totally blown away from what I have heard on this project. Producer James McDurt goes back in time to bring a fresh perspective on one of Hip-Hop’s beloved son, Bed-Stuy, Do or Die’s Biggie Smalls better known as Notorious B.I.G. I loved the fact that James started it off with an early joint and progresses towards newer cuts so it feels like a short time travel for me. The sonics employed vary from soulful, edgy boombap to synth fuelled but nasty as fcuk (forgive my French). Please hit the play button and digest the goodness on James McDurt’s The Brooklyn Way

March 9th, 1997; a bitter day in the world of Hip-Hop. Whether you knew him as Christopher Wallace, Frank White, or Biggie Smalls, The Notorious B.I.G was one of Brooklyn’s finest and an instrumental force behind the East Coast sound during the bitter rivalries of the 90’s. Although he’s not with us anymore, his signature smooth laid back flow will live on for ages through the music of fans around the world. In tribute to the late emcee, Dutch producer James McDurt has given us The Brooklyn Way, a nine track FreEP that encapsulates some of the best tracks from the late rapper’s catalogue. Head nodding beats that blend beautifully with Biggie’s larger than life rhymes, for a project that proves that music truly has no borders. Spend your Sunday with Biggie and McDurt.. and if you don’t know, now you know.   Stream/Download: Get the AudioMack version HERE
