Superior – Earn It (ft. M-Dot & Revalation) (Video)

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.

Note:

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.

Single You Out: Revalation – Justice For Justin (prod. by Juno)

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.

If you are interested in making a contribution to assist the family with funeral expenses. There is a GoFundMe page up.

Single You Out: M-Dot – Chrissy (prod. Buckwild)

Can you feel the excitement? It’s in the air my friends! M-Dot is set to drop his long awaited album, Ego and the Enemy, on January 27th. Chrissy is the 4th single from the project and showcase M-Dot’s ability to narrate a tale over some riveting production from Buckwild.

You can feel the depravity and hopelessness as M-Dot weaves his tale of a girl straying off the beaten path into a sick and twisted world.

Mayhem & Soulslicers – World We Live In (ft. Akrobatik) (Video)

Man, I feel like I have been waiting for the new Soulslicers and Mayhem project for nearly a year, and this track with Akrobatik makes the anticipation all the greater.

If you are familiar with the Soulslicers production team, you know you are going to get top notch beats that are steepened in boom-bap. And when EMS vet, Mayhem links up with Akrobatik, the listener receives a bleak view of this bitter world we live in. It’s stark realism.

Can’t wait for the album, Soul It May Seem, coming soon!

M-Dot – Give It To Me (Official Little Planet 360 Video)

M-Dot keeps creating and innovating with everything he does.  In this industry, you have to endeavor to be different in addition to be skilled.  In this manner,  M-Dot sets himself apart by giving you another 360 degree video  on top of giving you superlative lycism.  I felt like I should throw my VR Headset on to watch this video.

The competition can’t keep pace and Ego and The Enemy drops 01/27/2017.

M-Dot – Dreamscape (prod. By Marco Polo) (Video)

M-Dot is really building the anticipation for his forthcoming album, EgO anD The EneMy, which is due in two parts, the first of which is slated to drop January 27th of next year. It seems like a ways a way but it will be here sooner than we know it.

M-Dot really does get diabolical and creates a blood bath over the Marco Polo production. I mean when they suggest someone is ‘bringing the pain’…this is what they mean. The duo is taking the listener into the torture chamber for this one. The production and the lyricism transport you into the chaotic mind.

Enjoy!

Single You Out: Jenova 7 & Eddie Shinn – Space Jive (ft. M-Dot)

M-Dot put me on to this joint he was featured on that showcases a whole different vibe from the EMS front-man. Jenova 7 & Eddie Shinn laced this spaced-out yet jazzy  fore into the great unknown, while M-Dot narrates tales from galaxies far beyond. M-Dot continues to impress with great dexterity when confronted with different topics and styles.  He’s the ecmee’s emcee after all.

You can check out Jenova 7 & Eddie Shinn’s project, Cosmic Safari, here.

M-Dot – Road Trip (Video)

Our friend M-Dot is back at it again narrating tales from his travels over  a Soulslicers’ production.  My reaction to the track?  First, it’s really great to hear some Soulslicers’ beats.  I have really missed their work over the past couple of years.  And it really is a match made in heaven when M-Dot starts flexing his verbal muscles over their heat.

I can’t wait for M=Dot’s new album to drop along with affiliate Mayhem’s joint.  Stay tuned for more EMS goodness!

Note:

While we all eagerly anticipate M-Dot’s album, Ego and The Enemy, he has released a teaser project once again showing the assortment and diversity of talent.  This is old hat for us here at Hip Hop Dependency, but I am sure there are more than just a few of you who will appreciate these dope eight tracks.

You can see the company he keeps on some of these tracks and let me assure you, he was never out shined on any of these cuts.  I hope you all can appreciate that talent as much as we do.

Stay tuned for more information on the album!
