If hip-hop cartographers were to create an image in which cities were scaled based on their importance in the game, NYC wouldn’t just be On Da Map—it would cover a sizable portion of the globe. Be that as it may, Booth newcomer Black Dave is worried that his hometown’s dominance is in jeopardy, thanks to the distance artists have strayed from their roots. On the lead single off his forthcoming mixtape, he calls for a return to “that real sh*t” that made the Big Apple great, rolling out his blueprint for regional rejuvenation over Olby‘s retro, yet forward-looking boom-bap production. Think Dave has what it takes to put New York back on the right path? Then give him your vote by copping his Black Dave for Pres street album when it hits the ‘net at the top of 2013.
