With Yoni Wolf’s solo rap tour starting in Arizona today he has released Old Dope, a rap tape featuring some of the finest versification to spill from the artist’s mouth.
Stream it below.
Stand out tracks: Rappin 4 Money, Jimmy Breeze, Well Water Black (Onyz Coudz Mix), Ghost Dream
Old Dope features reimagined tracks from Yoni Wolf’s current band WHY?, the experimental hiphop group cLOUDEAD and even his early noughtie collaborations with Odd Nosdam as Reaching Quiet.
Despite the slight absurdity of hearing Wolf’s inimitable voice juxtaposed with Mobb Deep and Pharcyde, Old Dope does exactly what its title suggests. The mixtape makes old sounds feel new. Seriously, it’s pretty incredible, especially if you missed some of the amazing lines from cLOUDDEAD and Reaching Quiet the first time around.
