After enjoying some of the world’s finest delicacies with his buddy Action Bronson on VICELAND’s Fuck, That’s Delicious, Meyhem Lauren goes back to what he knows best by serving up his new album, Piatto D’Oro. Named after his favorite Italian restaurant in NYC, the 15-track project pairs the Queens MC’s gritty rhymes with exquisite production from the likes of Large Professor, The Alchemist and Seth Silenser — and it makes for one tasty dish. Fellow New Yorkers Action Bronson, Roc Marciano and Big Body Bes make up the small supporting cast, because you know what they say about having too many chefs in the kitchen.
“I feel that it’s my favorite work to date,” Meyhem tells Complex of his new album. “I feel like it has something for everybody. It has grimy records, it has something for the radio. It’s fun, it’s still me. I’ve been growing a lot and this album showcases my growth and where I’m headed career wise.”
