Who would think a 17-year-old artist in this day and age of hip-hop would would make one reminisce on some of the days of Big L, Biggie and Mobb Deep.

"Hardknock" is a prime example of that, and today we get to hear an embodiment of his work through his new mixtape 1999. Get it below and stay tuned.
