DJ Premier, Benny The Butcher & Black Soprano Family Drop “Times Is Rough”
Black Soprano Family is back with the first single off their upcoming album.
Hyde and Heem show up on “Times Is Rough” as well. They trade bars with Benny over a swaggering instrumental from Premier, comprising a boom-bap beat and a blaring horn section. The lyrics are front and center, as the rappers discuss their drug-dealing past: “I’m a product of the cocaine 80s, drug war.”
DJ Premier isn’t the only big name who’s appearing on Long Live DJ Shay. The tracklist promises features from Boldy James, Armani Caesar, El Camino, Westside Gunn, and Conway the Machine. Check out the debut single below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments.
Plug told me, when my records stop selllin’, they still got me
Niggas just catchin’ on to the numbers I’m checkin’ on
Got lucky last summer, bookies wanna know what I’m bettin’ on
Set the bar, gifted tar, came through like a wreckin’ ball
