NYC rappers are becoming popular again, it seems everyone is coming to the realization that some of the best hip hop music that was ever created came out of New York. It is not an opinion, it is fact.
A new comer in NY is a guy named Casanova who became popular very recently and is generating buzz. He did a good job on his first ever mixtape, he definitely has room to improve but that will come over time. I do not condone the content of the music but I do support it as an art and for entertainment purposes only. You need aggressive stuff like this when you are working out.
