Tired of wading through the dance floor hip-hop anthems of New York to find a gritty, dirt-between-the-nails banger laced with a scratched-up hook and flaming-hot lyrical presentation? Watch as the Yankees meet the Red Sox through the Harlem-to-Boston connection of Backdraft and Versatile (Iceman Records).

Iceman Records presents the 12 single Its A Wrap, where Harlem emcee Backdraft and his northern counterpart Versatile exchange hungry verses and flip grimy street tales over a bumping beat and soulful background vocal sample. While neither exhibits a punchline-metaphor-simile heavy lyrical escapade, each comes correct in their own right, as the duo flip a mean effort that sounds more Roc-A-Fella than even Roc-A-Fella does nowadays.
