EDITORS’ NOTES

Smoke DZA is an imposing figure in boom-bap New York rap, having collaborated with superproducer Pete Rock on 2016's Don't Smoke Rock. The Harlem MC brings the same surgical precision to Not for Sale, which is like an FAQ for the rap game. Need to know about “The Hustle,” “The High,” or “The Lifestyle”? Smoke DZA’s got you. He moves from East to West, spitting grimy bars on “The Mood” and “The Come Up,” then rolling smooth with “The Love.” The posse cut “The Hook Up” features a rare production credit by mash-up master Girl Talk.
