Those who follow Cory Gunz know the Bronx emcee’s a more-than-capable heir to his father’s throne—unfortunately, he remains the game’s (self-proclaimed) Best Kept Secret. If there’s anyone who can help a talented yet tragically slept-on up-and-comer build buzz, though, it’s DJ Drama—now, the king of mixtape promotion’s teamed up with Gunz for the latest entry in his famous Gangsta Grillz series. The first leak off the forthcoming mixtape finds Gunz teaming up with two fellow members of hip-hop’s new school to celebrate the dawning of A New Day. Aphilliates Music Group “Crown Prince” Willie The Kid is first up; over **UPDATE** DJ Khalil‘s hard-hitting blend of horror-movie strings and reverb-heavy percussion, he spits an entertaining opener, notably boasting of being, “one of the fewest new rappers that’s not weird.” After Chi-town emcee Marvo (previously seen on Trel Mack‘s No Problem) spits his Midwest-repping bars, the headliner finally steps up to the mic, amping up the wordplay and alliteration in his memorable closing verse. DJ Drama Presents Gangsta Grillz: Heir to the Throne is coming soon—stay tuned to the Booth for further details.
