This one really hits home for me because it features a couple of cats I consider family: my man RAST RFC and the Yonkers OG Genovese. A mutual friend of ours introduced them some time last year and RAST expressed his appreciation for Geno’s work during his 90s mixtape run and Geno likewise showed love to Rast’s recent stuff. They ended up working on “Kings of New York” completely organically. The result is a perfect manifestation of two worlds I inhabited as a kid, the Downtown graf scene and the streets of Yonkers.
You can catch RAST performing at Webster Hall tomorrow night at the Meyhem Lauren & Buckwild Release Party for Silk Pyramids.
