HDBeenDope Pays Homage to DMX in Roc Nation’s “From The Block” Freestyle Takeover
Rising rapper HDBeenDope has unleashed his latest freestyle, “BDB,” marking the commencement of Roc Nation’s nationwide rap takeover on the freestyle platform From The Block. The video pays homage to the legendary rapper’s roots near the Calgary Municipal Housing complex, shot against the backdrop of visual artist Floyd Simmons’ iconic mural in Yonkers—a tribute to the late DMX. With subtle DMX references, from canine sightings to a self-produced beat featuring a DMX sample, HDBeenDope’s freestyle is a heartfelt tribute. The release follows his previous collaborations honoring NY legends, solidifying HDBeenDope’s position as a torchbearer for hip-hop’s rich legacy.
