Nyce Da Future

Nyce Da Future and Havoc are once again bringing that true hip hop to the culture and repping the spirit of Prodigy and the borough of Queens with their new collaboration ‘Future of the Streets‘. This album is rugged and grimey but has a different sound to the ‘golden era’ Mobb Deep joints of the 90’s. It’s relevant, raw but most importantly it is quality and authentic hip hop that is well worth a listen.

Nyce Da Future has always had a slightly more ‘airy’ flow in comparison to Prodigy and Havoc (and a number of other Queens emcees) so when paired with the more modern, eerie and ethereal Havoc production, it’s a perfect match. We still get that dusty vibe like it’s straight out of a basement studio, but instead of those big, concrete cracking drums and tracks, we have more simplistic and open drums, which allows for some tinkering with choir-esque hooks and the like.

But don’t get it twisted – this is still one hard AF release. Nyce & Havoc drop bars that hit home with a blend of braggadocio, drug talk and gun play, but also find time to explore some more introspective and more widely relevant topics that means anyone can tap into this release and find some heat. There is still that gritty undertone throughout the entire EP which is a staple of that New York / Queens sound – and it’s done really well again on this joint.

Bangers: Boss of the Bosses, Say Yes, I Can’t Believe It, Graphic

Score: 8 / 10. It’s a solid release and while it lacks some of the big moments that we have come to expect from a Havoc-laced joint, there is certainly enough quality hip hop to get this into your rotation regularly. Even with a more stripped-back sound, Havoc crushes the production for the most part and Nyce flows with passion and fire. Check it out.
