This Week in Miami Hip-Hop: Bizzy Crook, N.O.R.E., and More

It seems like the “comeback” is a trending theme in South Florida hip-hop this week.

Miramar resident Bizzy Crook took the more literal route, dropping his new video for “The Come Back,” in which he takes over the Miami Marine Stadium before its possible renovation this fall. Meanwhile, Little Havana’s ER305 and Little Haiti native Grimass reemerged this week with brand new records following the return of Drink Champ N.O.R.E with his first music video since “Moments” off his Drunk Uncle mixtape, which dropped earlier this year.

5. Bizzy Crook, “The Come Back” (Video).

Broward’s own Bizzy Crook leans on his native roots in South Florida for his official comeback. The Tidal Discovery artist invaded the legendary Miami Marine Stadium to film his latest visual for his new track “The Come Back.” With a beautiful lady by his side, Crook takes off from the stadium and cruises down the Rickenbacker Causeway in an all-black BMW while bumping the record produced by The Mekanics and Harry Fraud. Bizzy Crook plans to feature his latest single as well as his Ye Ali-assisted track, “Motives,” on his forthcoming project A Part Of Everything, which drops September 28.

4. ER305 ft. Chace Greene, “Born 2 Roll.”

Little Havana native ER305 returns with a new spin on a classic track from Masta Ace. ER recruits Miami Gardens spitter Chace Greene to exchange verses over Masta Ace’s “Born to Roll.” Both South Florida emcees add their own flavor to the timeless instrumental. ER305 is currently preparing to release his forthcoming EP, coming soon.

3. Ice Billion Berg, “Ooouuu” (remix).

If you haven’t heard Young M.A’s new track “Ooouuu,” then it’s time to climb out from under the rock you’ve obviously been living under. The buzzing record from the Brooklyn rapper has dominated the airwaves from coast to coast and has even inspired Florida’s rising emcees to jump on the enticing instrumental. Miami native Ice Berg is the latest artist to add his perspective to the track. It’s not clear whether or not the freestyle will end up on his new mixtape, FLAME. However, you can check for the song when the project drops tomorrow September 2.

2. N.O.R.E “Moguls/ Petty”

Drink Champs is dominating CBS’ podcast network every week with over a million listeners and counting. So, it’s no surprise that the latest music video from Queens native and part-time Miami resident, N.O.R.E, was inspired by his petty antics on the show. With the help of Drink Champs’ go-to videographer Rich Blanco, N.O.R.E., DJ EFN and the rest of the Crazy Hood crew relive the best moments from the podcast in the official visual for the Queens rapper’s latest records “Mogul” and “Petty.”

1. Grimass, “Timmy Turner” Freestyle.

Grimass has been on a roll with his consistent freestyles these last few weeks from his cover of 2Pac’s “Letter To My Unborn Child” to DJ Khaled’s “I Got The Keys.” And before the hype surrounding Desiigner’s “Timmy Turner” completely dies out — which is bound to happen very soon — the Dade County emcee lays down a quick 16 bars over the Mike Dean produced record.
