M-Dot ft. Krumb Snatcha - Gotta Be

Tags: M-Dot
Producer:

Album:
M.usically D.riven O.ver T.ime

What does it take to succeed on talent in an industry dominated by fads and flash?  To put it simply, you’ve Gotta Be M.usically D.riven O.ver T.ime—or M-Dot, for short.  Straight outta Boston, Massachusetts, the Italian-American up-and-comer isn’t the type to bandwagon-jump his way to fame and fortune, but he comes with a retro-informed, lyrically-driven style that will always hold appeal for hardcore heads in the Booth and beyond.  The newly-released lead single off the artist’s forthcoming debut album finds him teaming up with a fellow MA native to explain just how determined he is to make it to the top; while M-Dot’s energetically-flowed rhymes sound right at home over Teddy Roxpin‘s brassy, soul-sampling instrumental, Springfield native Krumb Snatcha‘s gruff wordplay on the front end is equally appealing. If you’re digging this ambitious jam, be sure and support M-Dot’s grind by picking up a copy of his first LP, set to drop in the fourth quarter of this year.
