Meyhem Lauren is a true school Queens, New York original. After dropping outerboro knowledge jewels around the globe on tour with Action Bronson, he’s back home and repping harder than ever with the upcoming free album Piatto D’Oro on Fool’s Gold.
Premiered by Stereogum, “Bonus Round” is a taste of what’s in store: smoothed out samples and knucklehead raps (“whole squad tatted up like Yakuza / we ain’t worried ‘bout getting jobs, you fuckin’ loser”) from a Who’s Who of NY rap royalty: Mey, Action, Long Island legend Roc Marciano and king of outros Big Body Bes. Stay tuned for more gems off Piatto D’Oro in the coming weeks!
