We’re less than a week removed from Tragedy Khadafi’s previous Thug Matrix 3 leak, the rugged-and-raw “ILL-Luminous Flow,” but the original Juice Crew member has already come through with another new cut. And “Narcotic Lines” features him reaching out to one of Dipset’s go-to producers, AraabMuzik, who has taken a break from the rave music heard on his latest effort, Electronic Dream. He’s provided Khadafi with a perfectly grimy NYC hip-hop beat led by twinkling cocaine-keys, operatic vocals, and booming bass. If you’re looking to have more gutter East Coast rap in your life, you should probably mark Sept. 20 on your calendar. That’s when Thug Matrix 3 is set to drop.
