Hear Your Old Droog's 'George Benson from Remulak' Impression on DJ Skizz-produced "Senseless Killin' II" (Droog Recordings)




"Before I head out across the pond for The #EuroDROOG Tour, I'm dropping this joint produced by my man, DJ Skizz, that showcases my famed yet underutilized 'George Benson from Remulak' impression — it's basically me scatting and rhyming along with the different sounds in the beat," Brooklyn/Ukrainian and uncannily Nas-sounding emcee Your Old Droog wrote on Soundcloud along with his latest track. "Senseless Killin' II" is the unofficial follow-up to Droog's latest sonic 1-2 punch of non-album Soundcloud loosies, "Hidden Persuaders" and Statik Selektah-produced "Unlimited Metrocard." The #EuroDROOG Tour will kickoff in Dublin, Ireland this upcoming June 6th and wrap up nearly one month later in Dour, Belgium on July 17th; but not before Your Old Droog is scheduled to make seven stops in-between, hitting England, France, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and Germany presumably for the first time(s) in his all too brief career.


"If you're in London, come check out the virtuosity live [in-the-flesh] on June 8 at The Jazz Cafe (hence the jazzy joint). Bring tea for The Republican Teaparty National Convention! Cop the YOUR OLD DROOG LP and KINISON EP on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and all that sh*t, and check for the KINISON EP on vinyl [out] July 10, too," @YourOldDroog poetically continued. Droog is of course, referring to his critically-acclaimed 11-track Johnny Cash, Sam Kinison, and Beastie Boys-sampling Rock-inspired KINISON EP. It would almost appear as though Your Old Droog has been actively compiling tracks for the follow-up to his widely-championed and aptly-titled debut, YOUR OLD DROOG EP, which was later expanded and re-released as an 18-track LP on his own home-grown imprint, Droog Recordings; if Your Old Droog's Soundcloud description is to be believed, eagerly awaiting crate-diggers like myself should finally be able to listen to KINISON EP on glorious wax this upcoming Friday, July 10th.
