Maffew Ragazino may be relatively new to the game, but he carries the torch for the NYC old school. On new single Sr., the Brooklyn rhymesayer emphasizes his seniority over his peers in the game, lacing Vinyl Frontiers’ low-key sample work with intricate, allusive lyrical flames. Like what you’re hearing? This ambitious, retro-informed banger is just one of many quality cuts slated for inclusion on Never Ran Never Will, which has yet to receive a drop date. In the meantime, fans can also keep an eye out for Ragazino’s Black Gold Mixtape, scheduled for release at the top of the summer.
