Note:

I am going to start this review out with the following statement:  Welcome To Hellzgate is most certainly a Top 5 mixtape/street album from 2012.   For my part, the only thing that comes close to the standard set by this project is Red Eye’s St. Fatrick’s Day. There are so many bangers on this joint, I simply can’t count them all on both hands.  This is something that you can knock whether you are on your way home from work or heading to the spot to get rowdy.  You will definitely get amped when you listen to this album!

Note:

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.

DJ Brans – Worldwide ft. M-Dot and Armageddon (Video)

I brought you the single last week and now I bring you the visuals and all I can say is…WOW.  This cut is dope and this video is on par with music.  I love what they did with the lighting in the hand gestures.  The whole concept of a pseudo battle taking place between these two very ill emcees is a good look.  It would be cool to do a whole album as such. DJ Brans album BRANStorm is dropping this year and if this cut is any indication, I will definitely be copping.
