While we await the follow-up to last year’s debut release, The Boombox Diaries Vol. 1, Nitty Scott, MC keeps us entertained with this remake of fellow New Yorkers A$AP Rocky and Flatbush Zombies’ “Bath Salt.” She doesn’t quite possess the menacing snarl of Meechy Darko, but she does still send a lil’ chill down our spine. Scott will release a full-length video for her cover next week. (Via AO)
Also, Nitty is raising money through a kickstarter campaign to fund her next video for ‘Flower Child. Make your pledge here.
Check out more new material from CyHi The Prynce & Trae Tha Truth, Bryant Dope, Slum Village & Baatin and Franc Grams after the jump…
G.O.O.D. Music meets Grand Hustle on “Round Da Corner,” the new collaboration between CyHi The Prynce and Trae Tha Truth. The Southern MCs are perfectly suited on this spacious, slanging anthem. Taken from CyHi’s Ivy League: Kick Back mixtape, which drops tomorrow (Jan. 29). (Via UHTN)
It’s no wonder Bryant Dope is naming his next project New New York with records like this. “QB” is the latest release from the Queens MC’s forthcoming mixtape, and is a worthy testament to the borough’s illustrious hip-hop history; the 19-year-old laces Hannibal King’s throwback beat like it was his born year.

Slum Village treat us to one last leak before their Mick Boogie-hosted mixtape, Dirty Slums 2, drops tomorrow (Jan. 29). The Nas-inspired “The World Is Yours” is both a tribute to and posthumous contribution from the late Baatin. (Via OKP)
Franc Grams is not only giving us a sonic flashback to the Golden Age, but a visual one, too. His aptly-titled “1995” video sets the scene by telling of a fictional young MC signed to an unnamed major label, bigged up by a unidentified magazine, but who tragically passed away before his potential was realized. Luckily for us, footage from the archives has been recovered, and we get to enjoy Grams spitting dexterous rhymes over a dusty boom bap beat like the Golden Age wasn’t a thing of the past. The black-and-white footage should come as a dose of nostalgic for all you ’80s babies. (via UHTN)
