Hip-hop really has come a long way. This is irrefutable if only based on the fact that rap albums have evolved from titles like Down By Law to Mandatory Brunch Meetings . That's progress, right there, fam. And given that Meyhem Lauren 's new song with Action Bronson , "Thousand Dollar Gym Shoes" (the follow-up to "10 Dollar Lap Dances"), is culled from said magnificently christened LP we'd trumpet its value just on GP. Thankfully, it's up to the fine standards previously set by Respect the Fly Shit . Lauren accentuates street hustle trappings with expected flair ("You can find us up at Mr. Chow's often"); Bronson serves up references both vintage and current ("Drink chammy out of Prince's Grammy/ My beard wavy like Sandy"). String-heavy beat by Tommy Mas. Mandatory Brunch Meetings drops December 6th.
