Plenty MCs Have Made Artistic & Personal Comeback Songs. Slaine’s Is Different. (Video)

Slaine released his comeback EP this weekend, Slaine Is Dead. Recorded amidst a fight for sobriety and other personal improvements, the veteran Boston, Massachusetts MC and actor heard about his absence. The La Coka Nostra member released the video for the title trackā€”set in a graveyard. Up against the wall of naysayers, a fickle and fast-paced industry, and his own crippling demons, Slaine goes in. This song is the MC saying everything bad about him, so others can’t. And he does so with a really sharp delivery, and aggressive Boston brawler’s cadence.

With a new lease on life, this may be a career resurrected in the eyes of the artist.

As a note, La Coka will release To Thine Own Self Be True on November 4.
