Quite a few dope projects made their way to digital shelves last week but I can’t let this one slide by, so out of all the projects, this is the one that I feel deserved the feature.
Nottz has crafted brilliance at least FOUR times this year providing the soundscape for albums from Blu, Bad Seed, Bumpy Knuckles and now NapsNdreds. He just has an incredible ear and gift for what he does.
And I have a few other projects from NapsNdreds but none as complete as Trouble & a Pair of Dice. His flow, wordplay, and content all shine impeccable on this project. There are a few dope features on this album, but none of them take the limelight off of NapsNdreds. He holds it down on all levels.
This is another must-have for your listening pleasure in 2018. Don’t let it pass you by! Here are my two favorite tracks from the project:
Murdoc has got some bars and sometimes he likes to show them off…like right here for the track, Visitors. The heavy production comes courtesy of Doc Miller. It makes me wonder if there’s a new project on the horizon. Keep your fingers crossed people.
I just got done listening to Operation Restore Lyricism the other day and this was one of my favorite cuts. MURDOC and AGALLAH prove to be an adept combo with a similar, aggressive approach to gripping mics. I respect music like this to the fullest. It’s that “challenge-us-and-take-a-loss” music.
Artist: Imakemadbeats x MidaZ The Beast
Album: The Nighlight EP
- Nighlight Sunset
- Freedom (ft. TzariZM)
- Subliminal Diss
- Word Of Mouth (ft. TzariZM and MURDOC)
- The Response
- 7 Years
- Nighlight Sunset
This project was released in conjunction with the sister project, The Daylight EP, that featured Butta Verses. Both of the projects are a prelude to IMAKEMADBEATS’ self-titled album which is dropping, next week on January 18th. I didn’t comment on the Daylight project mostly because I was involved in the end of the year business but I also must say that I prefer the darker side of things.
The beats on this project are grimey and MidaZ is the perfect emcee to rip over these tracks. He has the voice, flow, and delivery to turn these dope instrumentals into hip hop gold.
