Pharoah Mac & DMT - Hold It Down

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
DMT
Album:
Loyalty & Betrayal

Despite a hint of southern flavor on Hold It Down, you aren’t going to find Pharaoh Mac & DMT rocking an Alabama Jersey. In fact, you are more likely to find them donning Ryan Braun Jerseys as the dynamic duo hail from Milwaukee. Although Wisconsin is quite a long way away form the South, it doesn’t stop the Booth newcomers from channeling their inner UGK. Sure the cut doesn’t scream candy paint and cups of lean, but there is definitely a southern influence. Lets start with the pair’s beatsmith, DMT, who crafts a slick production with a soulful vocal sample, splashed with a powerful guitar section, making this the perfect song for crusin’ in your caddy. Mac has a more aggressive style than southern emcees are accustomed to, but the fluidity he demonstrates, rattling of bars with confidence and ease, make me crave cornbread and grits.  Want to hear what other distant lands Pharaoh Mac and DMT draw from to form their own unique, energetic style? Then peep their full-length album, Loyalty and Betrayal, available now via iTunes.
