A Bushwick, Brooklyn rhymesayer with a genuine love for his city’s history and musical heritage, Booth newcomer Twigg Martin gives listeners a crash course in New York City hip-hop on the latest single off his forthcoming street album. Over beatsmith nVMe‘s throwback boardwork, sampled from the Pet Shop Boys’ New York City Boy, the up-and-coming emcee takes us all the way from the birth of rap to the present day, name-dropping a laundry list of N.Y. greats in the process. For more, check out Twigg Martin’s Good Mornin’ America tape when it arrives on the ‘net this summer.
