Nobody is better equipped to talk about what it takes to make it in the game better than M-Dot. All these other artists looking at hip hop with the “fast food approach” but they weren’t prepared or equipped to take it there through hard work. And as the old adage goes…hard works always trumps talent. But with M-Dot you don’t have to split hairs there, you get to see what happens when hard work accompanies talent!
I am of course late on sharing this but this is my favorite track from M-Dot’s album from 2018, Ego And The Enemy. I assuredly have featured this track previously but now we have the video single released and it narrates (visually) M-Dot’s tale perfectly. I love that they went with the 60s(?) cartoon format to illustrate what sheep people have become and slaves to an invisible standard.
As I have said before…M-Dot encapsulates the trending mindstate without flaw while Hi-Tek creates a most compelling audible journey. Simply an amazing song (and now video)!
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.

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.
I am not going to speak too much on this latest cut from M-Dot’s album, egO anD The eneMy. After all, I have a review dropping for the project very shortly. But to put it simply, posers are put on blast for narrating false hood tales and impersonating tough guys. M-Dot and Jaysaun are putting the word out: you are not to be trusted!
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.
This is by my count the third single from M-Dot’s forthcoming project, egO anD The eneMy. And as of right now, this is my favorite track out of bunch of great songs. Days Are All The Same features some absolutely brilliant production from Hi-Tek. The integration of the “organ feel” and that killer sample usage is simply brilliant. M-Dot knows what to do with a beat like this. He narrates tales where each day is a grind and a repetition of the last. We are slaves to convention and the monotony of it all. Struggling to keep up with the Joneses.
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.

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!
