  • Artist: Mike Beatz
  • Track: 50/50
  • Producer: Mike Beatz
  • Album: I'm Thirsty Mixtape [Hosted by DJ Absolut]

Featured in late June, Mike Beatz' Crooks met a mixed reception in the Booth; though readers praised the established producer's street-certified boardwork, many doubted if he could cut it on the mic. Now, Beatz is back on our frontpage with mixtape single 50/50, a track he's hoping will turn the skeptics into devotees. This time around, the artist takes a decidedly different approach on the mic and behind the boards. Over his own string-heavy, soul-sampled boardwork, Mike expresses gratitude to a female who's held him down through thick and thin, promising to do the same for her once his grind finally pays off. The theme's an undeniably fresh one – when's the last time you heard a guy spit about being financially supported by his girl? – and Beatz' heartfelt rhymes may change a few minds regarding his prospects as an emcee. If this track's got you hooked, you're sure to find more to your liking on Mike Beatz' DJ Absolut-hosted I'm Thirsty mixtape, set to hit the 'net this October.
