6213“Born And Raised” is Cormega’s highly anticipated follow up to “The True Meaning” which won the Source Magazine’s prestigious “Underground album of the Year” award in 2002 and his critically acclaimed 2001 debut “The Realness”.

Cormega, real name Cory McKay, grew up in the Queensbridge Housing Projects, forming childhood friendships with future rappers such as Nas, Mobb Deep, Nature and Capone-N-Noreaga. Noted for his vivid and poignant narratives about inner-city life, Mega gained notoriety in the 90s, despite still being incarcerated, following a shout-out from Nas on his song “One Love” on the classic “Illmatic” album.

After his release from prison in 1995, Cormega became determined to pursue rapping. Nas featured Cormega as a guest on “Affirmative Action” from his second album “It Was Written”. From there Cormega started his own record company, Legal Hustle Records and dropped the two aforementioned releases.

“Born And Raised” features an all star cast of legendary producers including DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock, LES, Buckwild, Havoc, Nottz, Easy Mo Bee, Ayatollah, Fizzy Womack, and DR Period as well as appearances from EMPD’s Parish Smith, Brand Nubian’s Grand Puba, KRS-One, Big Daddy Kane, Tragedy Khadafi, Mobb Deep’s Havoc and Fame of M.O.P..

This album is a must for any true hip-hop fan.
