Flee Lord featuring Eto and Billy V - Mac in the Engine

I took the words home and thought them through. I even wrote a book report on it. But it's safe to say that I've reached a point in my life that, barring a Book of Job level change in fortune, I'm unlikely to become a victim of the war going on outside that no man is safe from. And yet, even in my advanced age fully settled into the suburbs, there are still times when hearing some dude rap through the various ways he is going to commit acts of violence in a heavy New York accent hits my ears in a way that nothing else can.

There are only so many times I can listen to Infamous in a day, though, so hearing that Prodigy's one-time mentee Flee Lord had put out a tribute to him ("In the Name of Prodigy") featuring beats from Havoc was about as good a Christmas gift as I could have asked for. It's got features from Raekwon, Busta, Prodigy's daughter, and a handful of other rappers that should be familiar to anyone who is still keeping up with that ol' NY sound. It's a quick ten tracks, all of them are easy listening, and well worth your time if you at all a fan of Mobb Deep. You can check out the full thing on Spotify.

And while I'm still in a NY State of Mind today, here's an older clip from one of Flee Lord's affiliates Eto:
