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: Cloud City Projects – Menace (ft. Try Bindope x Revalation x Bunsen) prod. by Bast.The.1

Cloud City Projects - No White Flags

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.

Single You Out: Revalation – Justice For Justin (prod. by Juno)

Sometimes music just has to be a vehicle for our emotions and that’s what we have here from Revalation. This was song was admittedly one of the hardest for Rev to write as he reflected upon his cousin’s recent violent death. It’s passionate and personal and if you can’t feel this then you are just plain numb.

If you are interested in making a contribution to assist the family with funeral expenses. There is a GoFundMe page up.

Single You Out: Praverb The Wyse – Average Joe (ft. M-Dot & Revalation (prod. Soulmade)

Man, it really is hard to contemplate a hip hop world with out Praverb. As a matter of fact, I have just been avoiding thinking about it ever since he passed away over a year ago. What a great person and inspiration to so many…

But his love for music and his talent will remain a living testament to the man. EMS cohorts M-Dot and Revalation join the late Praverb for this previously unreleased joint.

There is a whole project that just released featuring dope matieral from Praverb, so make sure you check that out.

The Legacy

Single You Out: Slicenberg – Pros And CONS (ft. Revelation)

New jawn from the EMS camp!  Slicenberg invites Revalation to drop some bars across his latest creation, Pros & CONS.  The twinge of the guitar in the production gives it a taste of the blues while wrapped around the boom-bap drums.  Meanwhile, Rev truly drops some tough bars at one point making it Biblical referencing Old Testament kingpin Hezekiah.

This joint is destined for Slicenberg (Soulslicers) new project, Keep It Sample.
