Your Old Droog & Tha God Fahim’s second joint release, Tha YOD Fahim, is a celebration of the immense talents of its creators. They have an undeniable chemistry that started as guest appearances and has now blossomed into something greater. And while the world got an amazing appetizer in the form of Tha Wolf On Wall St in January, the two like-minded artists are back just weeks later with this full-length release.
The connection of YOD and Fahim is a pairing that simply works. Both have their roots in raw, unpretentious hip-hop that also pushes the music to its boundaries, and you can hear those qualities running throughout Tha YOD Fahim’s 14 tracks. Each one presents something different and new to the listener while delivering dope rhymes, clever wordplay, and strong vision of all involved with the project. That includes living legends Pharoahe Monch and Nottz, who provide a guest verse and instrumental on the shit-talking showcase “Slam Dunk Contest.”
As unadulterated as the music is, the album represents something even greater from both Droog and Fahim. It’s a testament to their creative synergy and their gifts as artists who never compromise or hold back. You can see that in Fahim’s “Dump Gawd” approach that’s resulted in literally hundreds of releases, which YOD has also started to embrace with his recent prolific output, comprising of efforts like Dump YOD: Krutoy Edition, Jewelry, It Wasn’t Even Close, and more.
Your Old Droog & Tha God Fahim’s Tha YOD Fahim is out now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via YOD’s Mongoloid Banks imprint via Fat Beats Records.
