MaV recently released his GhettOthello project and it took me a while to run through it and I have to say I was amazed. I was amazed not because of the dope music (I expected that) but by how professional everything was done. It was solid from the rhymes and beats all the way down to the mix down. There was careful execution in the arrangement of the tracks and not a lot of people understand how important that is to showcase your talents. The attention to detail was impeccable. Also it bears mentioning that MaV produced most of the project himself and you will understand how impressive when you hear the project.
Now to the tracks at hand. I first heard MaV because of his collaborations with another artist we have showcased here, Just FLoW. It just so happens that the two of them have a couple of dope tracks on this joint and it gives you an insight into how dope this project is. Observe and Report is definitely an early candidate for the Top 50 at the end of the year.
This is the best songs compiled from February 2012. The 2nd such compilation in our series. It’s the best way to catch up on some of the dopest singles released in the month. Nothing but the best for you guys. Enjoy the streaming excellence….

Fresh off their release, Water Break, Just FLoW and MaV bring you some visuals for the best track off of the EP. Joey Crawford is a song that just goes. I like the dark visuals and the “speeding up” of the footage. The duo display great wordplay and chemistry and pretty soon the world will stop playing dumb and get on board with what these gents are bringing to the game musically.
Artist: Just FLow x MaV
Album: The Water Break EP

3. Joey Crawford (Referee)
6. The Press
The best part about HHD is finding and supporting a winner and that’s exactly what’s happened by helping to spread the word about Just FLow and MaV. These guys appeal to commercial and underground audiences alike with a universal sound and good wordplay. The emcees feed off of each other’s energy throughout the release.
I admire Just Flowing’s tenacity and his tireless work ethic. This is the first time I have featured him on the site but it won’t be the last. This is the track that I was waiting for him to make. It’s just some brutal lyricism brought by Just Flowing and MaV. It’s raw and nasty. There’s no weak hooks or gimmicks. It’s just dope. I am not really familiar with MaV but he sounds good on this track and Just Flowing is getting better with every verse I hear him spit. Couple his ever increasing lyrical prowess with his work ethic and his other artistic abilities, I think the name is going to be very recognizable in the months to come.
