A grand jury in New York has reached a decision that no charges will be filed against a New York police officer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. The hip-hop community went on Twitter to express their frustrations about the decision.
Some of New York City’s top rappers are featured in Hot 97's own Cipha Sounds and Drewski’s video for 'Banned From Radio.' The clip features Maino, Bodega Bamz, Chinx Drugz, Troy Ave, Mack Wilds and Boston rhymer City Boy Dee.
Maino's mission to help push New York back to the top continues on 'Watch Me Do It.' He turns away from the east coast blues and zombie strippers of 'What Happened' to get back to what he does best: Make street bangers.
On 'What Happened,' Maino and Jadakiss talk about the state of New York rap and lament about the city's lack of unity, radio stations like Hot 97 and Power 105.1's lack of support for local artists and strippers being the new A&R's. However, perhaps the biggest problem is a zombie outbreak.
If you thought New York lost its rap edge, think again. Big Apple rhymers Maino, Bodega Bamz, Chinx Drugz, Troy Ave, Mack Wilds and City Boy Dee are reminding naysayers who can really spit bars on the all-star posse cut 'Banned From Radio.'
As expected, there's another response to Trinidad James' negative comments about the current New York hip-hop scene. This one comes from Brooklyn's own Maino, and it's just as harsh, if not worse, than AG Da Coroner's diss.
The whole New-York-rap-is-dead debate was going on long before Kendrick Lamar jumped on Big Sean's 'Control' and knocked over the buildings like Snoop in '95. But the L.A. lyricist crowning himself the King of New York definitely intensified the misery of proud Big Apple purists.
