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.

The homie MAD1ONE has been on an impressive creative streak over the past couple of years.  It seems like inspiration hits him in waves, and the projects that result from them are well thought out presentations of lyrical worlds he creates.  For Impressive Hate PoemsMAD1ONE hit up producers Kizer and Ruler Why for a concept album that plays out like a poetry slam.  To help round out the perspectives provided, MCs such as Nick CruzRoyalKingMinusStress, and Blazy bring guest verses to the proceedings.  The tracks are all bangers, the bars come in rapid fire, and the overall listening experience is engaging enough to keep you locked in from beginning to end.  Check out the project, donate a few bucks if you can, and share it around so others can check it out.

For the last few years, you know you’re good for about two releases from MAD1ONE, and with the second half of the year cresting and running into the final portion, it makes sense that he’d release Invisible Kingdom, a collection of hard-hitting, mostly high energy songs from the San Antonio-based veteran.  The production line-up for this one is insane : Four LimbsDJ GonzRuler WhyKizerSBVTKFurthermoreProgenySultan Mir and Mikey all contribute to the stellar sounds that MAD1ONE eloquently professes on.  This one is another strong notch in his belt, so don’t sleep on it… check it out, share it around, and if you have a few bucks, make a donation when you download, as every little bit helps.
