Back in 2006, we ran the first ever interview with Daytona, a Bronx MC with off-the-charts swag and a refreshing ear for beats, strictly off the strength of his track "All Dem" getting crazy rewinds from Cipha Sounds every Saturday morning on Hot 97. Since then, dude has dropped occasional freestyles, but otherwise kept a profile more Cast Away than "Daytona like the beach, bitch!" But he's back, two years later and just in time for Summer, dropping this new A Tribe Called Fresh mixtape of remade Native Tongue-related jams. The tracklist goes everywhere from "1ce Again" with Talib Kweli to a sick freestyle over Dilla's "Workin On It" to this '08 version of "Lyrics 2 Go" video-ed above, co-starring fellow Gen F journeyman Kardinal and Joell Ortiz, the best "regular dude" in rap not from New Jersey.
