Though their moniker brings to mind images of world-class fighters grappling and trading punches in a steel cage, Booth newcomers The MMA's are more interested in creating dope beats than in handing out brutal beatings.

West Coast underground underground mainstays Balance and Erk the Jerk guest on this headphone-ready selection, lacing the crew's densely-layered electronic production with rhymes emphasizing their devotion to their hustle and their determination to succeed at all costs. Feeling it? More fresh tunes await on The MMA's' E-TAPE, an all-original street release scheduled to drop sometime in early 2013.
