N.Y.OIL Hood Treason (Deluxe 2cd Edition)

June 1, 2011


Staten Island, NY, native NY Oil is best known for his racy rhymes, social commentary and forthright observations pertaining to the state of black culture and hip-hop. NY Oil is best known for his raucous single and accompanying video for “Y’all Should Get Lynched,” which features photos of A-list hip-hop luminaries Three 6 Mafia, Jim Jones, The Game, and 50 Cent juxtaposed with stark images of slavery and lynchings. The video was banned from YouTube within its first 48 hours of upload and generated an immediate firestorm of controversy. Both a divisive and unifying figure, NY Oil speaks unabashedly about the deplorable state of commercial hip-hop music and culture on his debut album “Hood Treason,” which will now enjoy its inaugural wide release after a limited and spotty self-release by the artist himself.
