Just a few days ago Brooklyn’s very own Dyme-A-Duzin released a surprise five-track EP, ‘Ghetto Olympics.’ This EP is intended to bring fans closer to the edge of their seats as his highly-anticipated album ‘Crown Fried,’ is still in the works.
According to his description on SoundCloud, the rapper explains how the concept of the EP derives from his views on “the attributes needed to overcome struggles and obstacles which get in the way of success, to the same stamina and perseverance that are required to win a gold medal.”
In a recent Twitter Q&A, he was asked to describe the meaning behind his title ‘Ghetto Olympics’ and in response, he tweeted, “In the hood we all have our own talents. We’re all trying to make it out.” He also breaks down the idea behind the cover art created by Sen Floyd, he states “Bandanas, barbed wire, caution tape, and bud leaves. Sounds like some sh*t the hood is caught up in to me.”
