Despite the fact that he has never achieved the same commercial success as his Queensbridge contemporaries Nas and Mobb Deep, Cormega has stuck around, kind of like a recurring sore throat that you don’t want to lose because you like the way it makes your voice sound. Tracks like Fresh, his newest single, indicate that he won’t be leaving us anytime soon. The song hearkens back to the golden era of hip hop, showcasing the talents of old-timers DJ Red Alert, PMD, KRS-One, Big Daddy Kane and Grand Puba. Producer Emile lays down a vintage-sounding beat, giving the track a mid-90’s, summertime headnodder feel. Feel free to bump it in the whip with the windows rolled down. Fresh will appear on his upcoming album, Born and Raised.
