I still dig the hell out of LUV NY, you should really check it out if you haven’t.

LUV NY (AG & Ray West) – These Rappers Under The Hex

It was nice to see AZ make an appearance this morning, but AG remains the gold standard for gracefully aging NY rappers. Incidentally, it would be pretty amazing to see AZ on the next installment of LUV NY (if such a thing were to be made).

The thing I really dig about the LUV NY video series is how it works better as a tribute to various aspects of New York life than as practical commercials for the actual LUV NY album. It’s almost as if the creators don’t really care about promoting the record, which is only mentioned in passing during the closing credits. The rest is just a lovingly shot kaleidoscopic collage of city imagery, with the featured musician chiming in briefly to contribute a personal reflection about their hometown. In this one, we have AG appreciating New York during warm weather and the merits of traveling by subway.

Another one from Reloaded. Roc + Ka + Ray West… There needs to be a Red Apples 45 EP devoted specifically to this combination, with features from AG.


Three Reasons Why You Should Listen To LUV NY

As expected, I’ve been enjoying the hell out of LUV NY. However I’ve neglected to post anything about it since the album was released, a big oversight on my part. Luckily the album has been getting some good press without my help. Still, I’d like to throw my support in as well. In lieu of boring you with a mostly gushing review, here are the 3 songs from the album I like best. If you like these, go grab it immediately. If you don’t like them go drink a keg of Moet and learn how to make choices.
‘Pressure Up’ Ft. Kool Keith and Roc Marciano – This one got some well deserved love as a leaked single. A great verse from Marciano is all but expected at this point, but Keith kinda maybe steals the show. In general Keith sounds very invigorated in his verses on the album, it’s some of his best recent work. DL link via NahRight

‘Egyptology’ Ft. A.G. & Roc Marciano – My favorite song on the album, and a strong contender for one of my favorites of the year thus far. That beat is just exquisite. At this point A.G. has a lot of experience with Ray West, so he settles into the groove like it’s an old luxurious armchair that he has owned for years. Roc Marci is again just doing what he does best.

Extreme Status Ft. A.G. & Kool Keith – Everything I wrote about A.G. and Kool Keith above applies to this track as well.

LUV NY: Episode 2 with Kool Keith by asceticmusic
LUV NY is just around the corner, here’s another promo video. To be honest I was more impressed by how this clip looked than what Kool Keith was actually saying or the beat in the background. It’s not that the actual content wasn’t interesting, it was just shot so well that I inadvertently tuned everything else out to gape at the visuals.
