Mikkey Halsted ft. Various Artists - Runnin’ My City

Album:

Only rappers seem to feel the need to rep for their city; you never hear Jason Mraz throwing down for Mechanicsville, Virginia. But whatever the roots of this geographic hip-hop phenomenon, Mikkey Halsted’s here with a prime example of the species on album standout Runnin’ My City. Arpeggiated synths dance over producer SC’s thumping drums as Mikkey, Bun B, Killer Mike, Crooked I, Chip Tha Ripper, Mistah F.A.B. and Gillie Da Kid celebrate themselves as the frontman in their cities. Mikkey and Bun B start the song off with some serious energy, intimidating the haters with lines like, “If I bark on the boulevard, cars start skidding.” After Bun, though, the song starts losing momentum with just merely above-average flows from the remaining five rappers. For such a huge posse cut, I was hoping for some more life to be breathed into this one. Or maybe I’m the only one not inspired to go hit the streets of my city. As always, we’ll leave it up to the Booth to decide. Those enjoying Runnin should go cop Mikkey’s much anticipated album The Dark Room, dropping December 21.
