His video for "Ain't Nuttin' Changed," the first single off of the album, is about as Hip Hop as it gets. You got dudes from his hood, Poet kickin' rhymes, and of course DJ Premier cuttin' and scratchin' on the decks... you just can't top that.

New York In The House, I Dare You To "Walk It Out"
Back in 2009, Blaq Poet, a Queensbridge-based MC (which also happens to be home to NaS, Mobb Deep, and Ron Artest among others), released an album called, Tha Blaqprint, on DJ Premier's label Year Round Records. It didn't sell particularly well, but that was never the point- it received solid reviews and went under the radar as one of the better releases of the year.
