For all of you not fluent in national area codes, 718 just so happens to lay claim to the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. In other words, 718 is as New York City as you can get, which is fitting considering Nina B, Action Bronson and Skyzoo are also NYC as you can get. For Nina’s new single, producer DJ Jazzy Joyce lays down a minimalist and head-nodding beat that the headliner uses for both an opening verse and hook that’s more NYC than a Metro Card. Closely following Nina is Skyzoo, who drops some serious Do The Right Thing references in yet another lyrical guest verse, and Action, who drops some serious Bobby Flay references in yet another semi-insane guest verse. It all adds up to one hell of a reason to rep the 718 and pick up a copy of Nina’s ironically titled Titles Are Played Out mixtape, due out Aug 21. Those who can’t wait can cop her previous project, The Bo$$tress 2 (B*tch I’m Back), via The DJBooth for free right now.
