Less than a week away from the release of Scribbling Idiots Invitation Only on Illect Recordings. They have been dropping tracks from the project leading up to it’s formal release on March 11th. “Victorious” features lyrical darts from Redcloud, Cas Metah, Playdough, Sojourn, Manchild, and Jurny Big slung over Theory Hazit production. That’s an all-star line up for your weak butt! SO much rappity rap that you’ll need to rewind it 28 times just to process everything. It took me 10 times just to digest Redcloud’s verse. “Kick a Mormon is the chest for knocking on my door”…WHAT!
“Yeah I know what love is, and it just don’t stop. But I can explain it better when I say what love’s not”
Mars Ill is a Atlanta based duo comprised of ManChild (Emcee) and DJ Dust (DJ/Producer). Their debut album Raw Material originally was dropped on Sphere of Hip Hop records in 1998 and re-released in 2002 by Uprok Records. This album gained notoriety in the hip-hop world for it’s classical boom-bap production and witty soul filled lyrical content. ManChild and DJ Dust have been heavily involved in the Hip-Hop scene in Atlanta. They both also belong to the Deep Space 5 collective. “Love’s Not” is an ode to things which break people away from God’s intention for us. Manchild speaks truth to life over the smoothed out production and Rahlo (BlackSoil Project) offers up an excellent guest appearance. Also, below check out “Mona Lisa” from the Sound Methods album, featuring the late Jax (Binkis Recs) as well as Playdough and Lil Sci (John Robinson, from Scienz of Life).
Ahmad teams up with Manchild and DJ Dust, also know collectively as Mars Ill to explain a few things they want more of and some things they wouldn’t mind less of. You can find this track on the critically acclaimed Pro Pain album from Mars Ill.
I wish Hip Hop wasn’t afraid to have more moments like this. ………………….
