During an interview with DJ ‘Z,’ Brooklyn born rapper AZ listed his TOP 5 Brooklyn-born MC’s of all time: Bigge, Jay-Z, KRS-One, Fabolous and… himself. Although Maino didn’t make the list, it doesn’t mean he isn’t slowly rising to the top of the hip-hop food chain. Along with often used collaborator and now free on bailLil’ Kim and the help of unsigned/lyrically-gifted sensation Papoose, the new single Brooklyn For Life delivers a knockout punch. The bickering among New York artists to claim their same-city competition isn’t as good has gone on for over three decades. On this GQ Beatz produced cut, the message is about the city that churns out the talent and not its hierarchy.
