This year, the Mello Music Group roster will once again link up with some of their favorite artists to craft an album's worth of fresh tunes. Today, we get our first taste of the compilation in the form of Requiem, an insightful jam that finds longtime Booth fave Oddisee collaborating with underground vet and Little Brother alum Phonte. Over the former's powerful, sampled production, the two emcees poignantly reflect on racism in all its guises, from profiling, to xenophobia, to police killing of unarmed black men. Persona is slated to hit record stores and online retailers March 10. In the meantime, of course, you can keep it locked for further singles.
