Complex kicked off a new series today called City Cyphers, where they head to buzzing hip-hop cities around the country to highlight some of its best local talent.
On the first episode, they head to New York City — the birthplace of hip-hop — and bring along the talents of A$AP Ferg, Wiki (of RatKing) and Your Old Droog. If I were to pick some of the best younger emcees from NYC, these three would easily be toward the top of the list. Ferg, Droog and Wiki each took a lengthy turn over the live instrumental band led by fellow citymate Christian Scott, and it’s pure excellence.
Watch the cypher above. I’m gonna dig this series.
