Today on #GullyClassix we’re featuring Cam’ron’s “D Rugs” which takes the listener on a journey through the protagonist’s experience with his mother being a drug abuser and his own experience as a dealer. In the end both the drug abuser and the dealer meet with unsavory results. From a technical standpoint the way Cam flipped the concept of drugs and gave “him” the name D Rugs was pretty genius.
This song came out almost twenty years ago and is still as infectious as ever. That Neptunes beat is ridiculous. The hook is catchy. And Jay-Z never disappoints when it comes to flow / delivery. This is one of those tracks I come back to every once in awhile just to reminisce about that early 2000s era.
