¡MAYDAY! ft. Ras Kass & Dice Raw - Make a Livin

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Plex Luthor
Album:
Stuck on an Island

Mo’ money may lead to mo’ problems but, as guest emcee Dice Raw observes on the latest leak off ¡MAYDAY!‘s forthcoming full-length, when you’ve got no money, everything’s a problem. On this newly-remixed version of the cut, the Floridian ensemble hook up with Raw and West Coast vet Ras Kass to take a look at the obstacles that stand in the way of anyone trying to Make a Living in today’s economy. Though ¡MAYDAY! aren’t known for coloring inside the lines production-wise, group member Plex Luthor outdoes himself here here, crafting a stark, reggae-tinged instrumental that mutates unpredictably as the record progresses. Bernbiz, Wrekonize and company lace the off-kilter groove with some fittingly out-the-box rhymes, offering an unapologetically cynical, but thought-provoking take on the American Dream. Is ¡MAYDAY!‘s latest experiment a success? Your call, readers. If you’re digging it, you’ll be able to hear more this fall, when their Stuck on an Island LP hits record store shelves and online retailers.
