YOD - It Wasn't Even Close


Your Old Droog has returned in style with the release of his latest full-length album. After a relatively prolific 2017 in which he dropped PacksLooseys, and his joint project with Wiki, What Happened To Fire?, the Brooklyn, New Yorker enjoyed more of a quiet 2018. While he did give fans “Cement 4s” featuring Conway and his “Live From NYC” freestyle, these offerings only gave fans room to digest the art that very clearly takes time to make, while anticipating the next Droog dose.

Well, Y.O.D. spent his time out of the spotlight assembling something special for Heads. His just-released LP It Wasn’t Even Close harkens back to a time when being left-field and eccentric was just as Hip-Hop as reality raps. While this New Yorker may have garnered early-Nas comparisons five years ago, due to his gruff voice and smooth flow, his body of work has proven he is more a student of Rap music that is both cerebral and witty, like that of MF DOOM and Organized Konfusion.
