M-Dot jumps on the mic over this superior production from Whatson out of Germany. The two have collaborated on a couple of occasions before and you can really see the mutual appreciation in the craft they way emcee and producer go hand in hand. DJ Access on the cutz pushing this song to the penultimate. Other emcees are served an eviction notice for not paying their dues!
This song is coming off of Whatson’s forthcoming album which has yet to be named but we should all be checking for it! More information will be passed when I know.
Here’s a single from Cloud City Project’s album, No White Flags, which has been out for a couple of months now and remains exceptionally ill. If you love that hardcore boom bap, this is going to be right up your alley. This beat is like street gospel right here and all of the emcees really deliver the goods on the quality of bars, plus you get that EMS flavor when Revalation knocks out his sixteen.
M-Dot and Effiscienz? Yes, please! M-Dot is legit at the peak of his game and Effiscienz is THE label right now. It has an outstanding habit of dropping outstanding albums every year. And you know what it did a week or so ago? It dropped the appropriate titled, Out Of Nowhere, that features some of the best doing it right now. DJ Brans on the boards for this one which gives this cut certified status. Enjoy the duo’s music as they run through Paris like nobody’s business.
This post is a week late in the making from producer Jon Glass’ weekly series. And to be honest, I don’t follow weekly series such as this because I have a hard time keeping up, but this one features favorite M-Dot. So we definitely have to share. Glass utilizes a jazzy piano loop, a soulful vocal sample, and some snapping drums for M-Dot to flip on. And the emcee, goes over the history and formula of separating himself from the pack as an artist. It doesn’t take you long to figure out why.
I hope that Jon Glass makes this series available fo purchase at some point because I would like to hear it in it’s entirety.
There are no shortage of dope songs off of M-Dot’s album, egO anD The eneMy. But there are also no shortage of powerful songs either, and that’s what we have here with M-Dot’s latest video single, Chrissy.
M-Dot narrates the story of young woman’s life that goes spiraling out of control to a very tragic ending. It’s a difficult story to watch for some, because someone you know may have wrong-routed like this. It’s deep and personal and sure to heighten emotion.
More music from M-Dot? Yes sir, please! Foreign is another dope cut from the impeccable album, EgO anD The EneMy. And no people, this craft is not as easy as it looks, even though M-Dot may make it look effortless. The man who is on a hot streak right now when it comes to beats, Jon Glass, stands responsible for the production.
Oh man a couple of my favorite emcees, Nutso and M-Dot link up over this KNOCKIN’ beat from Whatson. This production is off the Richter Scale. The drums hit with intensity and the samples are so on point they could draw blood. All of the emcees drop some true verbal insanity. The one emcee I was not super familiar with, Robb P, really impresses when rocking alongside accomplished emcees. There are lots of quotables to be had in under three minutes!
The Cycle is a single off of Whatson’s, album which has yet to receive a title but is guaranteed to smack.
New video single off of Superior’s latest album, The Journey. And this video features none other than EMS cohorts, M-Dot and Revalation. The song, Earn It, is the perfect track for these guys to put a little perspective on the game. So many acts are just flash in the pans who have paid absolutely no dues. They expect just to show up and have it handed to them. EMS perfectly embodies the mentality that hard work and talent pay off.
Cop this album. Lots of good joints on here.

It is no secret around these parts that M-Dot is a much respected name. We feature nearly all of his music. But it’s also been a minute since he has released an album and in the end it’s time to take account, because creating an album is a much different endeavor than dropping singles or mixtapes. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding.
But in the end, M-Dot, met and exceeded expectations with egO anD The eneMy. The album remains potent from track one to track seventeen. There is no “fluff”. There are no trivial skits. There are no weaknesses to be found in the music.
Sometimes music just has to be a vehicle for our emotions and that’s what we have here from Revalation. This was song was admittedly one of the hardest for Rev to write as he reflected upon his cousin’s recent violent death. It’s passionate and personal and if you can’t feel this then you are just plain numb.
