Your Old Droog Drops Surprise Album ‘It Wasn’t Even Close,’ ft. DOOM, Mach-Hommy, Wiki, and More

Featuring an all-star cast of grit and grime specialists.

Without warning or regard, Your Old Droog has delivered his fourth studio album, It Wasn’t Even Close.

Released out of the thin blue, the Coney Island rapper’s new project feature’s a who’s who of underground and terrestrial kings, including Wiki, Mach-Hommy, and the mighty DOOM. It Wasn’t Even Close follows Droog’s 2017 album, PACKS, which was released just a few years after rumors of Droog being a pitched-down Nas were debunked. Since then, he’s risen to local hero status as one of NYC’s most gifted and wickedly witty pens.
