M.I ft. OnCue - Write It Down

Posted 3 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Tyler Keyes
Album:

While some emcees are only in it for themselves, M.I has a more altruistic reason for entering into the high-risk, high-reward business of hip-hop: he wants to put on for his crew and supporters. In order to do that, however, he must first Write It Down. The backbone of this effort is producer Tyler Keyes’ exceptional boardwork. Keyes shows why M.I picked him to produce the entirety of his forthcoming project, blending an irresistible, chopped vocal sample with poignant, yet bubbly instrumentation. If Keyes’ boardwork is the backbone, M.I and guest OnCue are the rest of the vital organs. Together, the emcees showcase a determined, charismatic, and relatable style as they rattle off genuine bars. Their verses are separated by a catchy, understated sung hook. Fans of Write It Down will be happy to hear that M.I’s new Pushing Keyes album is set to drop next week, on May 16.
