As you've probably guessed by now, I'm a much bigger fan of 80's and 90's hip hop than modern, but I do love modern hip hop that sounds like old school hip hop. The latest from Mt. Vernon, NY's Loopy Ferrell hits that old school sound that I love. "Profit" features Asian Doll on a verse and has that mid-90's feel to it. Production is minimal and there isn't even a shred of R&B shown here. This is pure hip hop, with the edge that it missing in most modern songs from the genre. This is oddly reminding me of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Of course, "Profit" isn't a pure throwback. It does sound much more like 2021 than 1995, but it's great to see current artists looking back to their influences like this.
