Harold Stallworth only has two weeks left on his lease.
As I was compiling songs for this mixtape, I wrestled with the question of what exactly constitutes mafioso rap. What I found was that it’s incredibly hard to pin down a definitive set of parameters. Just a few years ago, Brooklyn rapper Skyzoo released a full-length cover of Jay-Z’s debut album, Reasonable Doubt, which is distinctly mafioso. Yet nothing about Skyzoo or his derivation of Reasonable Doubt ever struck me as even close. I suppose that I just know it when I hear it. This mixtape is what I’ve heard over the last few years or so.
