As we welcome the new year, Hip-Hop heads can reflect on 2015 with Bekay’s annual ‘year in review.’
For over a decade now, the Brooklyn emcee has been condensing the previous twelve months’ events into a succinct, humorous, no-punches-pulled track. Next to Skillz, Bekay’s series is the longest-running “wrap-up” in the game. And while his contemporary tends to focus more on the music industry, Bekay covers sports, politics, general f*ckery, and everything in between.
That much is evident from the jump, where the Brooklyn rapper pays homage to this year’s smash hit, Straight Outta Compton, before referencing the Drake and Meek Mill beef, the Pope rolling through New York in “a f*cking armored golf cart,” and Ronda Rousey’s vicious beat down, all set to the instrumental for Drake’s momentous “Back To Back” diss. That’s just a sampling of what’s covered here, and if any of it offends you, take a note from Bekay: stop taking everything so damn seriously. Happy New Year!
