Single You Out: M-Dot x Apollo Brown – Done

All I can saw here…is…WOW. Obviously, I am a huge fan of M-Dot. I showcase pretty much everything he puts out because he’s that good and consistent. But I can say without as much as a waver that this is one of his BEST cuts…EVER. This is a shining moment of 2022. M-Dot has worked with alot of dope producers, but man, how he graces this amazing Apollo Brown production is other worldly. And content wise, he puts today’s game on full display and roasts it. Illustrating all the shortcuts and smoke and mirrors that today’s artists utilize save for talent, and fall flat on their face.

…I’m just shinging light like God on the first day…

Note:

M-Dot has been showcased numerous times on our site, but the day he drops anything less than stellar, is the day his project doesn’t reach these pages. But my friends, today is not that day. For 10 plus years we rep him as an artist because of what this project, Dining In Dystopia, embodies. It is one part sheer skill and going for the jugular, and another part personal testament to what it takes to achieve this level of recognition.

M-Dot – Blood, Sweat & Tears (Video)

M-Dot has his new project, Dining in Dystopia, dropping on January 28th, and Blood, Sweat, and Tears is yet another ill cut from the project. And while the song, is laden in M-Dot’s talent and skill, the video on the other hand is done with a certain amount of comedic value and light heartedness. It’s pretty funny and entertaining with the narratives that take place during and after. It reminds us that hip hop should be fun, but counterpoint, in the grand scheme of things the reality is that for all the talent and grind that M-Dot possesses, battling against the likes of impostors, frauds, and amateurs isn’t far from the truth lol. L.O.B. on the beat!

Enjoy and check the album when it drops!

Single You Out: M-Dot (ft. Kool G Rap x Revalation) (prod. by The Mighty V.I.C.)

M-Dot’s new single, Decadence, takes us through time when he invites emcees Kool G Rap, M-Dot, and Revalation to drop some verses over a beat from The Might V.I.C. The production, for my ears, harkens back to 1990s, with losts of synth elements, appropriately placed horns, and scratches from DJ Jean Maron applying LL Cool J samples. Each emcee picks takes on a time frame and takes us back to that place from their own perspective. The concept is articulated perfectly and I am positive all will enjoy.

Single You Out: B Leafs – Matatan (ft. Estee Nack, Codenine, M-Dot, Al Divino)

B Leafs tabs some super talented emcees for his new cut, Matatan. Estee Nack, Codenine, M-Dot, and Al Divino spit some exceptional verses over his soundscape. I love when unique styles blend on the same track for the sake of being dope. And while all verses are dope, as per usual, M-Dot’s lyricism and cadence really resonate with me:

Trying to elevate…you hear me now, you hella late….same ones who weren’t there for the struggle want to come celebrate

So true.

If I’m not mistaken, B Leafs project should be due out in the next few months and we should all be looking out for that.

Single You Out: Whatson – Neck Tie Remix (ft. Conway x M-Dot x Nutso)

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.

DNA – Boss50 (Video)

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.
