Mickey Factz - The Lost Exhibit: #ALPHA

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Just Blaze
Album:
Unreleased

Lock your doors, bar your windows, and keep a shotgun by your side at all times – The Lost Exhibit #ALPHA has escaped from its holding cell, and it’s out for blood! Oh, it’s a new track from Mickey Factz, not some type of nightmarish, genetically-engineered monster created by the government? Sorry, guess I should lay off the Resident Evil. In actuality, this unreleased record’s unusual title has a perfectly reasonable (if less exciting) explanation: Factz’ had forgotten about this freestyle, recorded over Just Blaze‘s beat from Jay Electronica‘s Exhibit A (Transformation), till just recently, when he came across the file and decided to leak it in anticipation of the January 1 release of his latest project, Alpha. This is one exhibit we can all be glad didn’t remain forgotten – Factz’ heady, paranoia-tinged mix of braggadocio, sociopolitical commentary and revolutionary rhetoric is as attention-grabbing as ever, and Blaze’s ambient, synth-driven boardwork is the perfect foil to the emcee’s lyrical intensity. If you’re digging this moody track, don’t forget to grab your own copy of Alpha first thing after you wake up New Year’s morning (or afternoon, or evening, depending on how hard you partied the night before).
