“Don’t push me, ‘cause I’m close to the edge / I’m trying not to lose my head / It’s like a jungle sometimes / It makes me wonder how I keep from going under.” More than 30 years have passed since Grandmaster Flash put those lines down on wax, but they remain as resonant as the day they were penned. Now, mysterious NYC buzzmaker Your Old Droog has repurposed them as the centerpiece of his latest promo single, gritty, yet irreverent street banger No Message. Accompanied by P Brothers’ hand drums and ominous choral harmonies, Droog and guest spitter Rast RFC deliver bars as menacing in tone as they are witty in content. On September 3, the headliner will be making his live debut at The Studio at Webster Hall. Click here to cop tickets to the event, which will also feature sets by Rast and Timeless Truth.
