One of the truly great stories of 2011 was the rise of the indie artist and the number of strong Hip-Hop albums that didn’t come from the major label system. Brooklyn’s own Maffew Ragazino Sr. dropped a stellar debut album that rung bells all across the underground. The album featured stellar rhymes and gripping production with superior values.
Without that major muscle behind it, it didn’t change the world in the grand scheme of things but for New York Hip-Hop, it was a strong album in a market that is rife with copycat rappers. After the initial love, the dream crashes back to Earth. Hot97 ain’t playing the tracks on late night. Still waiting on that Preemo track. Sr. ain’t tripping though, just retooling and going back to work, which for now means preparing for his coming mixtape Never Ran, Never Will, featuring all Brownsville emcees.
The track, “Sr.” is full of his BK swagger and laced with compelling, heartfelt lyrics. The beat is calm and consistent, at times infused with that 90’s spirit ironically made popular by Dj Premier. More dope shit from the planet of Brooklyn. “Sr.” Enjoy.
