With all of New York riding the crest of a wave of new hip-hop talent, Harlem is right there alongside Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx leading the way. Smoke DZA and Vinny Cha$e have broken out of the upper part of Manhattan in the last few years, leading the way alongside A$AP Rocky and the rest of the A$AP Mob for the neighborhood that spawned legends from Dipset to Mase to Big L. The two have each dropped videos in the past week—Vinny’s “Hustle” feat. fellow New Yorker Kid Art, and DZA as the featured artist on Wiz Khalifa’s “Old Chanel,” in which DZA brought Wiz up to a chicken spot up in Harlem to film the video. Ahead of the duo’s show tonight at the Studio at Webster Hall in Manhattan, Vinny and DZA swung by the XXL office to talk Harlem hip-hop, New York rappers, and their wild live shows.—Dan Rys (@danrys)
