Noisey caught up with Harlem heavy-hitter Smoke DZA hanging out on his old stomping ground of 119th St to discuss the forgotten tradition of playground battling, the family roots of his famous ‘Riiigghhhtttt’ catchphrase, weed and hoops. Later on, ‘The Kushed God‘ took us to Community 54 on the LES to shop and smoke up with producing wunderkind and his ‘Rugby Thompson‘ partner in crime, Harry Fraud to break down the importance of studio snacks and the synergy they share when their working on a track.

I was on Nah Right on saturday scrolling thru being a fan, trying to see what’s going on in the music world. Young Roddy dropped a tape on sunday and i got inspired and felt like rappin. So i called my engineer mat cody up and told him to come to the trap. I rapped over some of my friends beats plus a few other tunes i thought was cool, hit 2 of my homies from harlem, and put it out for free cuz i felt like it #Rrrright
