Not featured on the solo tip since last summer’s Jordan vs. Bird, Maffew Ragazino makes his return to our pages with Jackson Pollock, a fresh mixtape single which, as far as I know, has absolutely nothing to do with the abstract expressionist icon whose name it shares. Of course, that doesn’t make it any less dope to hear the Big Apple buzzmaker go toe to toe with Das Racist‘s Kool A.D. and Heems over Harry Fraud‘s piano-loop boardwork (sampled from Grizzly Bear’s Two Weeks). Ragazino’s Rare Gems 2: Black Gold tape has yet to receive a drop date, but fans can hear more from the artist on SMKA‘s The Report EP, released in 2011 and available for free streaming/download in the Booth.
