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.

You Know :: Mad1ne & Blazy Green Release Video For ‘Stezo’

Raw raps from Mad1ne and Blazy Green over raw production by Green deserves a no-nonsense, direct approach when it comes to a video, and luckily, this is exactly what the duo brings you with Stezo, the third single off of Dark Side of Jupiter.  Mad1ne has been prolific with the videos over the years, and Stezo marks another notch on a belt full of high quality and triumphant marches.  The video honestly speaks for itself, so if you find yourself feeling it, leave a like and a comment before you spread it around for all to enjoy.

Divine Mathematics :: Mad1ne And Henry Kool McKool Dissect ‘The Equation’

For an artist like Mad1ne, the recipe for dynamic and entertaining hip-hop is simple : clever and insightful lyrics delivered with supreme confidence on top of groove-inducing, new school throwback production.  This formula is so strong for him, in fact, that it seems as if his latest single, the Henry Kool McKool-produced The Equation, is a rumination on these very aspects of creation.  The tempo is deceptively upbeat given the cool, calm and collected nature in which the science is dropped, and the horn-infused track presented by McKool provides the perfect backdrop that allows the lyrics to breathe free and easy.  Definitely check out the track, cop it if you can, and share it regardless!

Root Down :: Third Root Drops ‘Passion Of The Poets’

a2731994017_10

With the world in such emotional taxing, tumultuous times, it’s sometimes hard to focus on, or even think about, music.  One thing that I love about hip-hop, however, is its ability to rationalize madness, remind us of the wins and losses of our past, and most important of all, inspire change and evolution (if not revolution).  Luckily, the San Antonio-based powerhouse that is Third Root is fully aware of their ability to make those specific impacts, and with they culled an all-star lineup to put together Passion of the PoetsAdrian QuesadaEl Dusty and Illfudge all get producer credits, while guest features include Black PumasMad1neGrupo Fantasma, Kam Franklin and Bavu Blakes.  If you’re simply curious about listening, you can find this one any and everywhere you stream or buy music online, but if you’re looking to support deeper, visit the Bandcamp page for exclusive merchandise.  Most importantly, spread the Third Root word if you’re feeling what they’re dealing.

Sacred Texts :: Mad1ne Releases ‘Dusty’ Visuals

After releasing the aptly named Impressive Hate PoemsMad1ne has enlisted the help of Sol Cinematics to drop the first music video for the project, Dusty.  This one is reminiscent of the 1990s hip-hop music videos that made me love the culture, where a black and white filter and grounded, gritty locations allow those with flow to address viewers directly and do what they do best.  A couple of cameo appearances can be found in the run of the video as well.  Mad1ne has always held it down for that era, and over the years, his work just keeps getting stronger and stronger, and this video continues the trajectory in the right direction.  Check this one out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around so those numbers can rise!
