It has taken years, but after the death of the greats 2Pac & Biggie, we are finally starting to see a new emergence in hip-hop coming out of both the West and East coasts. The West Coast has Black Hippy and Odd Future, two incredibly different, but equally influential groups; The East Coast has newcomers A$AP Rocky and Flatbush ZOMBiES, who are both re-establishing the sound of New York. Among those blowing up on the Eastern Seaboard is Joey Bada$$, a 17-year-old that immediately drew comparisons to Nas with his spectacular debut mixtape, 1999. For his latest single, he has joined forces with Ab-Soul of the Black Hippy crew, and it is amazing to hear the two styles clash and create a sound that is not distinctly either of theirs, but instead meets somewhere in the middle.
