T.R.O.Y. Guest Blogger w/Meyhem Lauren


If you’ve been following T.R.O.Y. for awhile it’s no secret we’ve been day one supporters of Meyhem Lauren, so it was only natural we ask the big homie to help set-off  Guest Blogger for ’13 with his Top 10 Grimiest NYC Tracks of All-Time.

Do yourself a favor and get acquainted with one of the realest and truest throwbacks hip-hop has today. Check out his debut double album Self Induced Illness available  on Amazon. You can also download his two must-own mixtapes Respect The Fly right here or Mandatory Brunch Meetings here. –Philaflava

10) Onyx – Walk in New York
 9) ODB – Brooklyn Zoo
Dirty sets the tone of the song from the second that it starts.
 8) Shabazz The Disciple – Crime Saga
This record is perhaps the most detailed and descriptive crime story ever. Shabazz has a flow that is unmatched on this record.
7)  Cormega Feat. Mike Delorian – Fuck Nas
Even though this track was a diss record specifically about Nas and nature it embodies the general sound of that grimy Queens NYC rap that raised me. “Fuck gold chains and sneakers I had that when cocaine was cheaper”
6) M.O.P. – Cold Word
“Slum ass wanna be hard ass nigga / cornball butter soft lard ass nigga!” Nobody keeps in grimier then Fame and Billy I could have picked 10 M.O.P. songs if I wanted to compose this list but I decided to go with this one. “It’s a cold world so bitch nigga dress warm!”
5) Tragedy Khadafi Feat. Imam Thug – True Confessions
“Clappin Co’s bustin PO’s right in their knee caps” Not only is this track a grimey NYC street life anthem but the skill level and wordplay that Trag and Imam hit you in the head with is flawless. This beat epitomizes the sound of real inner city gorilla rap.
4) 50 Cents – Thicker Then Water
 “Move during the jux you know I’m gon’ shoot so you gonna pay me or the hospital duke/ don’t call me to feature I don’t wanna rap with ya I brought my knife in the club I came to scrap with ya!
3) Capone & Noreaga Bloody Money.
Even though Parole violators has the grimiest lyrics on the War Report ” Bloody Money is undisputably a NYC street anthem and should be listened to at a high volume while drinking Hennessy or cleaning a fire arm.
2)  Kool G Rap – Take ‘Em To War Feat. MF Grimm &  B One
Take em to war “Grimm gimmie the infrared and semi and I’m puttin red dots on niggas foreheads and making muthafuckas Indian you got beef go get yourself a wreath because its murder cause I put holes in my beef like fuckin white castle burgers.”
 1) Mobb Deep – Shook Ones Pt. 2
This record was special not only because the production and rhymes were flawless but because it was also a commercial success and caused a whole wave of NYC street anthems to drop soon after.
