Single You Out: Jon Glass – Price Of Love (ft. M-Dot)

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.

M-Dot – Chrissy (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.

Whatson – The Cycle (ft. Nutso x Robb P x M-Dot) (Video)

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.

BugNef (Bugout & DJ Nefarious) – Depth Perception (ft. M-Dot) (Video)

BugNef is the union of artists DJ Nefarious and Bugout (Granite State) and they are about to deliver an EP in the middle of July that you should be prepared for. I have always been a fan of Granite State of course you know ho we rep guest emcee M-Dot.

This song is all about the grinding on your way to the top. There are a lot of ‘unglamorous’ moments operating as an independent emcee, but endurance is the key. Chase those dreams!

Stay tuned…

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: 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.
