M-Dot and Revalation bring that exquisite lyricism over a DJ Grazzhoppa rendition of the track, Jump Start. And you know you are getting 100% hip hop with this combination.
Dub Sonata – Another Day (ft. Revalation, Bobby J From Rockaway & M-Dot) (Video)
Dub Sonata enlists a superlative cast of emcees for his latest single, Another Day, with the likes of M-Dot, Bobby J From Rockaway and Revalation. This track is the perfect blend of soulful and boom bap. I love the way the beat rolls in and out of the soulful chorus. And the lyrics from all three artists are fantastic relating those stressful experiences to listeners around the world in perfect cadence. Really feeling this joint alot.
And guess what? You are going to be able to hear more from Dub Sonata when his album, Tranquilizer Dart, hits on November 21st.

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.

Single You Out: Butch Swim & Tha Anthom – Big Bossman Tokyo (ft. M-Dot & Rev)
Some new music that involves the good Brothers M-Dot and Rev is always welcome and they find themselves on the song Big Bossman Tokyo which is produced by Bay Area producer duo, Butch Swim & Tha Anthom. Tha Anthom also handles a sixteen in between the Boston emcees, and all verses hit their mark on this Tekken inspired track.
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.
Revalation & GoD iLLa – I Been (ft. M-Dot) (Video)
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!
Single You Out: Kore – Left Lane (ft. EMS)
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.
DZ The Unknown – Lucid (ft. EMS) (Video)
DZ The Unknown teams up the EMS team (M-Dot, Revalation, and Kore) for this video single, Lucid. The production from C-Lance may be one of my favorite beats from him recently. The lyricism is also very rich with each artists delivering their own measure of talent to the table.
This track is off of DZ’s project, Observe and Adapt which has yet to receive a release date.
Single You Out: Cloud City Projects – Menace (ft. Try Bindope x Revalation x Bunsen) prod. by Bast.The.1
Here’s a single from Cloud City Project’s album, No White Flags, which has been out for a couple of months now and remains exceptionally ill. If you love that hardcore boom bap, this is going to be right up your alley. This beat is like street gospel right here and all of the emcees really deliver the goods on the quality of bars, plus you get that EMS flavor when Revalation knocks out his sixteen.
Superior – Earn It (ft. M-Dot & Revalation) (Video)
New video single off of Superior’s latest album, The Journey. And this video features none other than EMS cohorts, M-Dot and Revalation. The song, Earn It, is the perfect track for these guys to put a little perspective on the game. So many acts are just flash in the pans who have paid absolutely no dues. They expect just to show up and have it handed to them. EMS perfectly embodies the mentality that hard work and talent pay off.
Cop this album. Lots of good joints on here.
