The Queens rap bruiser Meyhem Lauren is probably best-known as an Action Bronson associate, but he’s landed in the Mixtape Of The Week column twice, for 2012’s Respect The Fly Shit and Mandatory Brunch Meetings. And now he’s prepping the awesomely titled Silk Pyramids, a collaborative EP with the veteran New York rap producer Buckwild. The first single is called “Silk Shirts & Yellow Gold,” and it’s a tough, no-bullshit example of classicist hard-nosed New York rap. Listen below.
Silk Pyramids is out 5/27 on Thrice Gold.
