New York City hip-hop is under new management. And at the heart of the revival are Highbridge The Label stars, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Don Q.

Meanwhile, Q has the airwaves ablaze with radio freestyles. Joined by label founders QP and Bubba, the Bronx rookies speak on success, fame, women, and everything in between.

        Excuse me for not having an ounce of interest to these new jacks…Check my credentials I’m from NY and cerified, sure I live confortably on South Beach and I’m back in the city 5-6 times a year. I’m not in my 20s so no these stories dont interest me …now maybe it was premature judgement bc I Expected a Legend following last Episode …

  • These guys are grinding. Young and building a brand. Somebody put a bag behind these guys. These is the new Indie wave. Label behind them but really not all on their product. Smart move!

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Signed to Atlantic. We talk about it.

      • Kris Kompute

        Fuck outta here. First Young MA and now these two?

        You clown ass niggas getting paid off to push these NYC locals. Rest of the country ain’t heard of them.

        Meanwhile, mixtape apps are getting exclusive Meek interviews and Cole still ain’t fuckin with you when he’s obviously got a project about to drop.

        Podcast is weak.

          Based off your comment, it’s evident you don’t get out much.

          Young MA has the hottest song in the game right now. Fact. A Boogie opened up for Drake (the biggest rapper in the game) 3 nights in a row on the biggest stage (MSG)

          Quit reaching and let us be great.

          • YABOI

            You sound like a fan in free agency ” hes coming here because this is new York!!!” Just because they poppin out in NY don’t mean shit!!! No play in my city n state foh man.

          • Lmfao!

            The biggest singer in the game *fixed*

          • Kris Kompute

            Based on how hard you’re going, you must be renting that POS apartment of yours from their label. Did they pay off your 1996 Toyota celica too?

            Bullshit blog payola at it’s finest.

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            it’s friday. find your nearest club tonight & buy yourself a drink. u need it,

          • Chad Lee Yay

            I mean I think these songs are hot…..but how come

            nobody calls out
            these rappers for originality……The A boogie joint “My Shit’ is
            clearly a Dej Loaf Knock off and Young MA just remixed Bobby Shmurda
            with the same flow he stole from Chicago…..I find it quite sickening
            that people we look up to, Like DJ Drama and DJ Envy, promotes this
            Bullshit….I understand that you are protecting your bosses
            investment….but when will someone stand up for the culture and stop
            giving all these punk azz passes for these whack azz rappers!!!!!!

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            We actually talked about the Dej Loaf comparisons

          • Chad Lee Yay

            I guess if a rapper is using someone else’s flow…..Id think they should at least shout that rapper out in the song! I think the song is cool, but why hype around stuff that be clearly bittin + recycled lyrics = 90% of promoted music……I see now why WALE be some damn mad……

        • THE REAL mac DIESEL

          FACTS!!!! QUIT HURTIN’ B.DOT’S FEELINGS!!!! LMAO!!!!

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      His freestyles remind me of G-Unit, Lox radio sessions

      • PREMERE

        He bodied for the family on fabs joint……

        • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

          i agree. oddly enough, i ain’t like fab verse. it’s great lyrically but i felt the roc-a-fella nods was over done. especially over the amil sample. but that’s just me.

          • estwst

            Fab killed that track and then the Amil bar put it over the top for me

          • PREMERE

            Nah ofcourse fab snapped his track he had to. I get what your saying about roc a fella nods overdone, but the lines were hot. Overall Don Q stood out, fab established, dave east on the come up. Don Q tho looking foward to more musicm

    You guys need to throw the town in on this podcast….. Drink Champs is running away with this rap podcast game. You and elliot aren’t meant to host a podcast. Stick with the blog!

    The Drink Champs show is far more authentic and has much better guests.

    Best of luck with the blog and congrats on your success!

      Bwhahahahahahaha

    Yo, your podcast is on point, I just spent the last week catching up on all of them after finding it on Spotify. As a student of Hip Hop and being in my mid 30’s there is a lot of information your guests conveyed that was very intriguing. There is so much I want to say about all of them but I will keep it brief. The Just Blaze interview is my favorite. One thing I noticed from him and I don’t know if its a Jersey thing but the way he describes his art and his reactions remind me of Kevin Smith when he describes how he makes movies. Elliot I know you were thinking what I’m about to say next because you are from the early era of hip hop…. B. Dot, I am five years older than you so I have a little more first hand knowledge of the culture and all I gotta say is… Listen to Clark Kent and learn from that interview, His point of view on every thing he said is what is lost on today’s fans. I won’t elaborate because he said it perfectly and I suggest you go back and listen. I’m not saying this to downtalk or even question your credibility I can just tell from that interview that you didn’t vibe with some of the views Clark had and it’s not your fault you just werent old enough during those era to truly have experienced them and understand why the older gods arent feeling the music like they should be. When you actually see great music being made and understand how it was crafted as it happened is different from just listening to it. Its one thing to be a fan of the music and grab some stuff from before your time and like it. But to live through the progession and keep your ear to the street for 30 something years is something else entirely. Keep up the greatness guys
