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!
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)!
Fresh video single from Big Shug’s new album, The Diamond Report. It’s a really dope cut that features bars and talent from Boston’s own, M-Dot and Singapore Kane. All different styles with a very consistent message. The age of the ‘real rapper’ is dead so everyone needs to stop frontin’. The production comes from Reel Drama and is a stand out.
Yes…this is weeks delayed but you knew I was going to share it with you guys as it is EMS material. M-Dot, Rev, and Korejump on this uptempo Agent Dan track and get hype. This is the kind of song that gets you amped in a way that is light hearted and reminds us that hip hop can be fun. With that being said the lyricism will at times sever heads. And it doesn’t go unnoticed that Rev is hitting a new gear with his bars. I’ve always enjoyed him as emcee but he is escalating things here.
Is two weeks too late to post? Never that. EMS stalwarts, M-Dot and Revalation continue to build rapport over beats with long-time collaborator Whatson. This isn’t the first time that the crew has connected with the beatsmith, and it shouldn’t be the last if you ask this guy. M-Dot and Rev give you that lyrical adrenaline rush over some proper hype from Germany’s Whatson. This is all about creating flames as a precursor to Whatson’s forthcoming album.
M-Dot has earned his spot and every accolade given not only by the God-given immense talent he has but by the infinite sacrifice that he has given in the name of music. And you are going to hear that in every bar given on this joint, Price Of Love, produced by Jon Glass.
You can find this joint and many more dope goodies on the new compilation from Own Lane music, Stay In Your Lane Vol 1.
I was reminded today when B Leafs’ new album, The Horizon, dropped this morning that I had yet to post this incredibly dope single. The talent level incorporated with the likes of Elzhi, Ras Kass, M-Dot, and Large Professor is going to be hard to surpass when it comes to lyrical firepower.
I am a little better than halfway through the whole project by the way and it’s solid! But this the marquee moment thus far through my listen.
Producer AJ Munson has a project called Cigarettes & Coffee dropping on January 7th with an assortment of dope artists. Two of those artists are Ruste Juxx and M-Dot…and they do their thing over his soulful production.
Here’s a tight posse cut from the EMS unit off of Kore’s new album, Koreiculum, which is out now for purchase. Kore not only wrote the lyrics to the album but also produced all the tracks as well showing a great deal of talent in doing so. Of course, I am going to partial to this EMS posse cut, not only because of the depth of the talent pool, but the production sticks with you.
