Late Sunday, DJ Booth was informed that evidently The 5 Boroughs Is Back?! According to Queens-born actor/rapper LL Cool J and his four New York friends, Jim Jones (Harlem), Method Man (Staten Island), KRS-One (Bronx), and Lil’ Kim (Brooklyn), the birth place of the popular art form known as hip-hop has been resurrected. While the collaboration is powerful, it doesn’t feature a single New York artist (save Jim Jones) who has made a significant impact in the rap game as of late. So, who would be your five ideal representatives? Include your choices with your feedback!
