Mike Dreams - Proper Introduction (Sincerely Yours)
To prepare for the September release of his sophomore album, Philanthropist, Twin Cities MC and DJBooth member Young Son has teamed up with Houston’s DJ Kool Los B to drop an appetizer mixtape, entitled Forever Words. Leading off the disc is a freestyle over Little Brother-member Big Pooh‘s Sincerely Yours (from the group’s critically-acclaimed album, The Minstrel Show), appropriately titled Proper Introduction. Over 9th Wonder‘s beat, Son once again discusses his issues with the modern hip-hop scene, claiming that today’s rappers are “chicken like the dollar menu.” In the end, the message is clear; it’s time for a change in hip-hop. Listeners who agree, and would like some refreshing music, can download the Forever Words mixtape, available online-only May 30.
