Mean Doe Green ft. Hello World - Be Great

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
D.C. SoulPlusMind
Album:
Shade Proof

Cali is always buzzing, but in 2012, something just might pop-off. For example, take Sacramento emcee Mean Doe Green; listeners can virtually hear the west coast take off on his latest song release, Be Great (a DJBooth world premiere!). His first offering since the release of his Hard Hats and Hand Grenades album, MDG takes his military mind to another level by flipping the “be all you can be” motto into an anthem for true rap fans. He may not be the illest, but he’s real, as he would like to put it, keeping up his stamina throughout the rhyme while vocals from Hello World add to the song’s complexity. Sonically, a piano introduction lays down the foundation for MDG’s promise to deliver, regardless of circumstance, class or privilege as production from Los Angeles soundsmith D.C. SoulPlusMind matches the piano with a drilling bassline that steps sharply. The man obviously has his own strategy for success; feel free to press play and follow along yourself. Fans can hear more of MDG’s greatness on his forthcoming album, Shade Proof. In the meantime, take cover wack emcees. Green goes to war when it comes to this rap s**t.
