In rap as in just about everything else, victory often goes not to the most skilled, but to those with The Will to persevere come what may. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s Mazon exemplifies the tenacity and drive necessary to make it—and, as those who have followed his DJBooth features already know, his skills are nothing to sneeze at. On the title track and latest song release off his next project, the 22-year-old emcee acknowledges that he’s “got a lot to do” to achieve his dreams, but assures listeners that it’s only a matter of time before he’s on top. Production work is borrowed from Anders Trentemøller whose driving, yet understated instrumental is peppered with wise words from a 2009 interview with 50 Cent. If you’re feeling this cut, keep your browsers locked for the latest on Mazon’s forthcoming street album of the same name, which as yet lacks a solid drop date.
Update: The Will (Intro) is no longer available for stream.
