Published Jun 13, 2014Though it's yet to be confirmed, there's speculation that Nas has just dropped a new 10-song mixtape under the alias Your Old Droog. You can decide for yourself whether or not Droog is indeed God's Son by checking out the project's debut down below.
The rasp in his voice is certainly there on tracks like "Bad to the Bone" or as he "reports the news" atop the brass-heavy boom of "You Know What Time It Is." Perhaps the gritty, '70s soul-sampling "Loosey in the Store With Pennies" is the biggest clue, as the mystery man notes halfway through the track that his debut effort is "as sick as Illmatic."
If you want in on the mystery, the project can be streamed or downloaded here.
UPDATE: As pointed out by readers and Complex, Droog is not Nas. He is, in fact, a New York rapper named Your Old Droog. This is his mixtape. Mystery solved. Now enjoy the tape!
