Does big-upping your hometown have to mean leaving others out? For N.O.R.E. and his GoodBelt Gang, the answer is a resounding “No.” Though the Queens representative and his crewmates have titled this newly-released album standout and future single “My City,” they haven’t restricted the cut to NYC natives; rather, they’ve thrown open the gates to rhymesayers from a variety of locales. Over the whip-ready trap boardwork of Hazardis Soundz, Noreaga, Vado and Yung Reallie pay tribute to the streets that made them who they are, trading verses with ATL’s 2 Chainz, Detroit’s Cityboy Dee, Houston’s Bun B, New Orleans’ Mack Maine and Carol City’s GunPlay. If this action-packed ensemble banger’s whet your appetite for more, you’ll find what you seek on GoodBelt’s Resource Room compilation, out online as of Tuesday.
