Veteran Queens rap bruiser Meyhem Lauren is best-known for rapping alongside Action Bronson, but he’s made some seriously powerful music on his own; both his Respect The Fly Shit and his Mandatory Brunch Meetings mixtapes ended up in our Mixtape Of The Week column. Early next year, Laurenovitch will release his new mixtape Piatta D’Oro, and the first track we’ve heard from it is a sort of New York underground superfriends meeting. On “Bonus Round,” Meyhem Lauren teams up once again with his old friend Action Bronson, as well as boom-bap impressionist Roc Marciano and larger-than-life hypeman Big Body Bes, all over a twinkly beat from Harry Fraud. Check it out below.
Piatta D’Oro is coming in 2016 on Fools’ Gold.
