Smiley The Ghetto Child Brings Back The Foundation

This song is the newest/latest heat from Smiley the Ghetto Child from his mixtape “The Wake Up Call”. For those who don’t know, Smiley has been on the scene a while now and is most notably known for dropping ill verses on Group Home and Gangstarr records. This song has that classic Primo in his prime feel when grimey New York hiphop was king and had that signature sound. At one point New York MC’s were seen as leaders in hiphop but more recently we’ve seen them borrowing swag and sounds from their brothers in other regions in hopes of selling records. It’s nice to see Primo and Guru in a the same video, even though they do not appear together in the same shot which probably means there won’t be a Gangstarr record any time soon.
