NYC veteran N.O.R.E. grabs an all-star stable of collaborators for his latest single. Over a DJ Mustard beat, he trades bars with Rick Ross, City Boy Dee, and Ty Dolla $ign, who provides the hook. It’s initially surprising to hear the East Coast favorite spitting over such distinctively West Coast-flavored production, but he makes it work by acknowledging his bicoastal interests.
“East Coast ni**a rep that NY / West Coast ni**as done taught me how to drive by”—L.A.’s car culture certainly has its advantages.
Rick Ross, meanwhile, contributes a verse just hours ahead of the release of his Black Dollar album.
