In contrast with the city’s ever-growing drill movement, New York rapper Scorey has been building a reputation for making emotional trap music — a style his mentor Polo G has helped popularize.
Following the formula that’s brought him success, Scorey continues lamenting stories of his past over emotional guitar loops and heavy trap drums on “156 Hudson.”
Dark memories intertwine with melancholy melodies to create a violent ballad about Scorey’s upbringing in the streets, sprinkled with vague disses and an underlying pain. His lyrical content thus far has given fans a clear insight to his past as he continues to tell his story with each single.
“156 Hudson, that’s where I was thuggin’ at
I can’t lie, I broke up wit’ the streets and keep on runnin’ back
All this bloodshed, still could never get my brother back
Wipe my tears with a hunnid racks”Scorey — “156 Hudson”
Listeners are still waiting for a debut project from the NYC emcee after a string of stellar singles featuring standout tracks like the nostalgic “Die Young” and “FINDERS KEEPERS” featuring Dro Kenji and Internet Money. Though no concrete information is available yet, Scorey did hint at a tape coming soon, claiming he would release the tracklist after 5,000 pre-saves of his newest single.
Whether this tape comes soon or not, Scorey has given us plenty to enjoy as we wait for his inevitable full-length debut.
