Brooklyn born rapper Maino knows all about NWA. No, not the successful West Coast group that included Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, but rather his group of friends growing up in the streets. Collaborating with fellow New Yorker Uncle Murda and Interstate 78 neighbor Cassidy, the three MCs ride a tricked out orchestral version of Clint Mansell’s Requiem For A Dream. Produced by Dangerous LLC., (Disco Inferno) the record has a theatrical feel, which makes sense considering the sample has recently been used for both the TV show Lost and an installment of the trilogy, Lord of the Rings.
