Muggsy Malone - Before I Lay in a Box

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Grussle
Album:
The Consistency

If you were to keel over and die right now… well, it’d be a damn shame, because you’d just miss listening to a dope song by Muggsy Malone. But the point is: would you be satisfied with the life you’d lived? On mixtape leak Before I Lie in a Box (a Booth-exclusive world premiere), The Parkway Kid asks himself that very question, pondering the many unfinished entries on his bucket list—chief among them getting his family out of the ‘hood and into a posh lakeside estate. Needless to say, the DMV repper doesn’t take the cut’s sentimental theme as license to slouch on the mic. Over Grussle‘s head-noddable sample work, Malone makes every syllable count, delivering bars characteristically complex, relentlessly-flowed, and jam-packed with vivid, intricately-rhymed turns of phrase: “Please Lord, don’t make me detour / Keep my eyes lifted—I wish to peep more highs and lows than a see-saw. ” If this lyrically on-point jam leaves you craving more, keep it locked; neither The Consistency nor Malone’s Booth-sponsored Dedication, Determination & Discipline LP have received a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes.
