In congruence with his latest Night Before Purgatory EP, producer Planit Hank has put together a 12” digital copy of his grimy, in-your-face “What Happened to the Streets” cypher that enlists some of the city’s hottest lyrical titans. Tapping legendary duo M.O.P. and Benny the Butcher, the three MC’s manage to provide a sonically-forward rendition of the nostalgic sound often associated with New York hip-hop’s “golden era.”

Relishing in top quality production and militant lyricism, Planit Hank’s latest cut is a steely-nerved hip-hop brawler. Housing lyrically-empowering bars over the Shylow the BeatYoda co-produced boom bap beat, the rappers utilize poetic street lyricism that shares the raw realities of the street hustler life in the urban metropolis. The hard-flinging instrumental houses pounding drums, with an added string sample that effectually fills out the atmosphere of the track.

You can stream “What Happened to the Streets” below.
