M.i ft. Mikkey Halsted - Take a Loss

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: M.i
  • Track: Take a Loss
  • Feat. Mikkey Halsted
  • Producer: Tyler Keyes
  • Album: Prep Time

Nearly a year has passed since M.i. stepped into the Booth with his first feature, a cut which found him pursuing a beautiful woman (who may or may not have been a metaphor for success in the music game). In the Time since, the Austin singer/emcee seems to have been inducted into a few of life's harsh realities – in contrast to the aforementioned joint's cheery vibe, new single Take a Loss is a bittersweet lesson in accepting what one can't change. While M.i. may be older and wiser, he's not down for the count – as he explains over the elegiac, blues guitar-laced boardwork of Tyler Keyes, he's simply learned the virtue of renouncing one battle in order to reign victorious in the war. Chi-town mainstay Mikkey Halsted backs the headliner up on the guest tip, shaking his head at life's unfairness (using Oscar Grant's murder as a case in point), but concluding that “it's no justice til God judges.” If this powerful jam leaves you craving more, be sure to pick up a copy of M.i.'s Prep Time mixtape when it drops April 7.
