Jay Kinser and M-Dot showcase some skills just like it was…well…Clockwork. The two make it look so easy over this Silly Grinn beat. It’s exceptionally tight bar work between the two emcees, which means I will be on the lookout for more music from Jay Kinser, in addition to following M-Dot’s releases. (of course) Massachussetts in the building! Enjoy!
We got new flames from German producer Whatson! You have a true trifecta of emcees here with the heavily venerated Conway, coupled with the oft mention and supremely talented M-Dot, and that fire laced from the streets with Nutso. It’s a heavy banger to say the least. Different mic styles that mesh for a dramatic head nod effect. Whatson crafts a really complex and appealing beat here wielding, vocal samples along with banging snares, sublime scratches, and cascading strings.
This is not for the faint of heart.
M-Dot put me onto this visual showcase of talent from Boston. I really enjoyed the concept of someone putting their entire city on and showcasing the diversity of talent that’s involved. I can’t really say that there were any weak bars. Obviously when you have so many eclectic styles, some you will prefer, and others you may not. But overall I think this was pretty vicious and extremely well done. Shout to DNA for putting all of these artists on and making is super dope. It definitely put me on to some new names.
Ohhhh damn…you all are not ready for this…but nonetheless here it is. RJ Payne is one of the most sought over collaborative talents right now. His pen game is just ruthless. And here you have The Tangiers (Benefit and Kaine) inviting him along with M-Dot to trade bars over a track that is also produced by M-Dot. The end result is just spectacular. This joint is exceptional and gets you hype on the abundance of rhyme and rhythm.
This track is coming from The Tangiers forthcoming album, The House Always Wins.
A super fresh cut from Revalation and GoD iLLa’s collaborative project, RevILLutionAries. First and foremost, I LOVE this beat from L.O.B. Super dope vocal sample and those drums just knock. Secondly, the lyricism is undeniably potent! Both emcees are dope wordsmiths in their own right, and then you have M-Dot leading off with with his unmistakable sixteen. It’s a great cut on the merits of the music alone, but the video element, really just makes the track fun, and adds an extra entertainment value.
I copped the album but have yet to check it, but if this track is any indicator, it’s chocked full of all the ill stuff we have come to love!
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!
M-Dot gets a little crazy over this C-Lance beat, and too me it sounds like he’s having a lot of fun going maniacal. He sounds as sharp as ever flipping on the off-kilter tip. He enjoys playing with razor sharp object…bars my friends….bars.
Be on the lookout for more material throughout the year. This man is relentless.
Days Are All The Same is my favorite M-Dot track…period. This track resonated with me when it dropped four years ago. It hit me again when M-Dot released an animated video for the joint. And this time you get a new video re-rendering of the same dope music. This is one of those joints where everything just comes together…the meaning…the lyrics…the flow…and the superlative production from Hi-Tek. I love this joint.
M-Dot has let us into his life as an artist through his music before, but this time you can visually see the endurance it takes to keep up with his kind of grind. It takes not only the talent, but the willingness to sacrifice the things that many of us take for granted, in order for success to be achieved.
And I’ve said it before, not many fuse talent and hustle like M-Dot has for many years. I’m also going to go as far and say this: So many talented artists have folded their tents for as long as I have been writing, but M-Dot is a testament to that necessary resiliency.
I can’t just drop a few posts and ignore the combination of talent represented in M-Dot on the rhymes and the legendary Pete Rock on the production! This song represents insane levels of skill on several tiers. It’s intense and unrelenting and an unveiling of what is sure to be one of the best projects to drop this year in egO anD The eneMy 2: A Dissolute Paradise. This is to serve notice, that the project is coming to fruition and you should keep your ears peeled!
