“In My City” F. Talib Kweli & Royce Da 5’9″

    Mistah F.A.B. linked with Talib Kweli and Royce Da 5’9″ for the coast-spanning track, “In My City,” off of Fab’s I Found My Backpack 2: The Lost Notebook mixtape. Basically, the three rappers–representing Oakland, Brooklyn and Detroit, in order–detail the trials and tribulations of everyday folks. The verses are strong and the beat is sturdy, but the chorus lacks the craftsmanship of the raps. Royce might have stolen the show with his rhyming, which is maybe why he’s batting third. Mistah F.A.B.’s Lost Notebook is out now, and you can stream “In My City” below. [2DBZ]
