Dominic Lord - "Sin City (Cruel Lords)"

Hey, this samples the Drive soundtrack!

Dominic Lord is a rapper from Harlem loosely affiliated with the A$AP Mob (he used to go by A$AP Dom, so it's probably for the best that he did the whole name change thing). He's worked with Hudson Mohawke in the past to great success, so it's evident that he's got great taste in collaborators. Today he dropped "Sin City," which hits a few key pleasure centers for us: One, he does kind of a Max B/Dame Grease thing with his flow, which is super timely given the ascent of all things wavy into the hip-hop zeitgeist. Two, it samples something from the Drive soundtrack, which is still nearly novel for a rap song to do. The Drive soundtrack is really good, but that should be pretty obvious at this point.
