Just a few days after releasing his first solo single of the year, Your Old Droog is back with “Dropout Boogie”, a collaboration with dearly departed rap god MF DOOM. Over production supplied by Edan, these two master lyricists trade verses about the school days, reminiscing about cutting class and raising hell. “School is not for everybody,” says Droog. “I dropped out of high school, and community college, twice! The GED was nice though…stay confident and follow your own path.” Available on 7″ vinyl and at all digital outlets, “Dropout Boogie” is the latest dose of raw New York rap from Your Old Droog, and among the first posthumous MF DOOM releases since the underground hip-hop icon’s passing last year.
“This the first song I ever recorded with DOOM. This man’s work renewed my interest in hip hop and rhyming at a time when I got tired of hearing what was on the radio or what was considered popular rap. For him to end up appreciating what I do 10 years later shows the power of never giving up on your passion, staying the course, believing in yourself and having vision. Rest easy, Villain.” – YOD
