One of the most overused and asked questions in Hip-Hop is, Did New York fall off? Brooklyn rapper Maino addresses the issue on “What Happened,” featuring Jadakiss.

2 Much and Sarah J hook up the instrumental and Maino gets right to the point, rapping “New York got soft.” and adding “Man, this sh-t is going crazy, it’ll make you go bananas, why New York got a playlist, look exactly like Atlanta’s.” Kiss tags on a tight third verse while everything is held together by the hook; “What happened to my city, man?”

Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex got the premiere. But, ironically, is radio partly to blame for NYC’s allegedly troubled footing in the game? Let us know what you think in the comments. Listen to “What Happened” below.
