Mayhem & Soulslicers release the video for a single they released a month or so ago for the Boston anthem, Patriots. And while Tom Brady and company may have been knocked out of the playoffs, Mayhem and his affiliates definitely represent. Mayhem, Edo G, and M-Dot each represent a color from their favorite football team and paint a very vivid portrait of what it means to be from The Bean.
This cut is from the forthcoming album, Soul It May Seem.
This is the second single from Mayhem and The Soulslicers collaborative album, Soul It May Seem. I do have to say that I am not a Patriots fan of any sort but I will support these guys for the duration. Patriots is a tribute to Boston and sports team. It also showcases the gang’s creativity with M-Dot, Edo G, and Mayhem all taking on a color of the franchise to show their support. Big Shug lends his talents and skills to doing the hook. Very creative material.
Is Boston in the building? Is EMS in the building? Is the Gangstarr Foundation in the building? Hell yeah it is! Benefit, M-Dot, and Big Shug drop those bars heavy over the Norman Cratez’ production. Three different styles joining forces and each repping hard. This particular song will be showing up on Benefit’s forthcoming album, Timing Is Everything. Stay tuned!

Our reigning champ, M-Dot, shot this project over to me many moons ago, while he has been galavanting around Europe on tour with the likes of that group you may have heard of,…Slaughterhouse. Unfortunately it has taken me this long to get to do a write up on the project. Really, Layer Cake, is a collection of guest spots, features, and rarities that M-Dot has put out or been a part of in the last 12 months. While it isn’t an album, there are plenty of dope tracks collected together worth talking about.
All the emcees shine on this track but again, M-Dot’s (I am bias for sure) verse really stands out. It’s just more evidence of why this man was Artist Of The Year. Blaaaam!
