Dave East Teams Up With Don Q & G Herbo On “No Hook”

Harlem resident and flame spitting emcee Dave East has released a new track titled “No Hook” featuring Don Q and G Herbo. “No Hook” is exactly what you think. This doesn’t follow the template of a structured song. There’s no hook, just relentless street lyrics. These emcees trade rhymes, creating one continuous, cohesive verse. It reminds me of crew tracks like Wu-Tang’s “Triumph”, or more recently “Synergy” off of Jadakiss’ LP “Top 5 Dead Or Alive”. The drums bang and go well with the tickling piano melody. There is some¬†cool use of filters on the track as well.

If this doesn’t make you emcees want to jump into a cypher and get your rhyme on, I don’t know what will.

What’s your favorite crew track?
