Maino Thinks New York Rap Lost Its Culture

Throwing his hat into the ring of the Kendrick conversation, New York rapper Maino stopped by DJ Kay Slay’s radio show on Shade 45 to discuss why Kendrick Lamar might actually be the King Of New York. In the brief interview, Maino explains that Drake, DJ Khaled and Rick Ross are as much Kings of NY as Kendrick is, since 85% of what he hears on the radio and in the clubs is songs by out-of-town artists. Check out the conversation above.
