19-year-old New Rochelle, New York, native The Outcastkid has been doing some crazy numbers over the past five months or so, with a number of original joints and remixes — notably his Jaden Smith “Icon” remix that had well over 50,000 spins. His latest, a remix of Smoke DZA and Joey BadA$$’s “The Mood” — which appeared on DZA’s Not For Sale LP — is a bar-heavy salute to the mecca of Hip Hop.
“These hating pebbles can’t stand to see a nigga rock,” he raps over the instrumental, which samples the Kanye-produced “Guess Who’s Back” by Scarface featuring Jay Z and Beanie Sigel. Wes Jo also comes through with a guest 16 full of punches. Sandwiched by the sound of the MTA announcing closing its doors, the song is dripping in NYC swag.
If you’re into the vibe, he has a nice catalog beginning to swell; the Riddle Beats-produced “Shock Jockey,” the super vibed-out “Indigo Smoke,” and the Rick And Morty themed “Rick And Morty’s Outcast,” are all worth a spin. Check those out, below.
