9. The Kid Daytona
We’ve been messing with the Kid Daytona ever since the Antiguan-born Bronx MC was “just Daytona” and putting his own Boogie-Down spin on Bogle’s “All Dem Deh.” And his eminently underrated latest mixtape, The Interlude, has us more down than ever–Check our recent interview with him here. The world has been slow to catch on but perhaps things might change after ‘Tona takes the stage at Venue 222 Friday night alongside Collie Buddz, Los Rakas, EPMD, Chino XL, et. al. Check the video for “Take Aim,” his re-imagining of The Chronic intro with Freddie Gibbs.
