Dark Arts :: BLAZY GREEN X MAD1NE Get Intense With ‘Pressure’

I love how sonic diversity is slowly making its way back into hip-hop.  Many people like to undermine the 1990s and dismiss it as an old, antiquated and forgotten era, but the most important part of that era was the fact that hardrocks, pop rappers, esoteric lyricists and self-identified crazy MCs (along with the vast array of other hip-hop artists) could all find room in the mainstream at some level, meaning that the fullness of the hip-hop spectrum found representation.  I say that to say this… knowing that collaborators like Blazy Green and Mad1ne are able to embrace the dark, moody, dingy textures that hip-hop was once synonymous with and find an audience is a testament that hip-hop is still diverse as ever.  For Pressure, Mad1ne brings the hard rhymes over a banging Blazy Green track that sounds like it’s been dubbed a few times from cassette to cassette, and I’m totally here for it.  Check out the track, leave a like and a comment if you feel it, and share it around for everyone to enjoy.

Mad Real :: MAD1NE Brings More Heat With ‘Respect Is Non Negotiable’

MAD1NE has been busy this year, and he’s driving that point home with Respect Is Non Negotiable, his fourth release of the year.  For this project, he tapped recent collaborator Blazy Green to handle production duties exclusively, and outside of a guest appearance from Jamar Equality, we get a quick but powerful burst of the MAD1NE lyricism that he has become known for, full of inspirational and education gems infused with high style and and a forceful delivery.  If you’re a fan of that signature San Antonio hip-hop sound that is keeping the true school aesthetic alive, then don’t sleep on Respect Is Non Negotiable.

Scary Hours :: Mad1ne And Blazy Green Tap Johnny Depp For ‘Castaways’ Video

Mad1ne is continuing his prolific 20202021 run, and it seems like it’s only gaining momentum at the moment, meaning things are probably just getting really and truly going.  Mad1ne and Blazy Green hit up Johnny Depp for some guest bars on Castaways, the latest single and video from Dark Side Of Jupiter.  The track is dope, featuring a beat switch halfway through and bars all around, and the video not only features everyone tapped for the track, but a guest appearance from the homie Ruler Why as well.  Definitely check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around so everyone can dig it.

Always Rocking :: MAD1ONE Starts 2021 Strong With ‘Dark Side Of Jupiter’ Release

San Antonio hip-hop has always been dope, and one of the dopest representing the city is the formidable MC known as MAD1ONE.  After a busy 2020, it’s no surprise that MAD1ONE would be right back at it first of the year with new material, but unlike the majority of his recent releases, Dark Side of Jupiter finds MAD1ONE exploring different energy in much more contemplative, introspective rhyming without the usual intense presence backing up the words, and all over lush production from Blazy Green.  It seems like spreading wisdom and reinforcing personal affirmations is more important this go-round than self-gratifying talk (not that MAD1ONE has ever dropped self-gratifying rhymes solely for the purpose of personal enjoyment).  If you’re looking for hip-hop that will positively shift energy, then take a moment for Dark Side of Jupiter, support it by copping it if you can, and spread it around for as many people as possible to hear.

Monarch Flow :: MAD1ONE Drops ‘King Leo Green’ LP

As a 1980’s baby, the true-school era of 1990’s hip-hop will always hold a special place in my heart.  It is this very respect and nostalgia that makes MAD1ONE one of my favorite Texas MCs, point blank period.  Dude sounds like he was plucked directly from that era, and it doesn’t hurt that his go-to producer Ruler Why has a production style that echoes the very same era.  For his latest project, King Leo GreenMAD1ONE employed Ruler Why and Kizer, along with a closing track by Furthermore, for production purposes, and guest verses by Jamar EqualityBlazy Green and Kizer help expand on the topics of royalty, power and earned respect.  If you like quality hip-hop, you’re probably already aware of MAD1ONE, but if not, get hip, support the new project, and spread it around for the masses to do the same.
