Video: Black Dave - "On Da Map" [Official]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Black Dave - "On Da Map" (video still)

The 90s Babies phenomenon is so real. Case in point: this brand-new joint from Black Dave, about whom I know absolutely nothing except that 1) he reps the 5 boroughs something crazy over a hypnotic post-Tribe collage of foghorns and big boom-bap drums and 2) he raps like a young Uncle Murda (Nephew Murda?) on the hook and a SlaughtaHouse-era Masta Ace on the verses. Which, taken together, is enough to have this track stuck in my head for the next 2 millenia. Watch below and be on the lookout for more from this young man, assuming he keeps making tracks like this.
