On October 29th, Hip Hop legend and Queens native Cormega returns to SOBs to perform songs from his new album ‘Born and Raised.’ Renowned for his ability to vividly describe the life and struggle of street life, Cormega has earned his stripes as one of the best MCs in the game. His most recent album has met critical acclaim with Hip Hop DX giving it a coveted multi-platinum (XXXX) rating. All Hip Hop wrote “Cormega’s rich allusions and commanding narrative voice keep you engaged.”
“This album is the truest look into me not just as an artist, but as a writer and as a person. I came into my own in a lot of ways on this album,” Cormega explains. He describes his music as “mature and sophisticated, steep rap with feeling” not something that can be easily said about a lot of the music out today. SOBs spoke with the Hip Hop veteran to talk about who he’d like to collaborate with, female MCs, giving back to the community and what it’s like to work with your heroes. Hit the jump to read more.
