M.O.P. Always Rhyme Like Their Lives Depend On It (Audio)
The M.O.P. co-sign is big in Hip-Hop. Lil Fame and Billy Danze have helped introduce acts ranging from Teflon to Termanology in their illustrious 25-year career. The Brownsvillains come out to support Patterson, New Jersey veteran MC/producer Ran Reed.
Ran produced his own single, “Gun Boy Interlude.” With a distorted vocal sample and urgent drumline, the song does not sound like what M.O.P. has favored in recent years. However, Fame and Bill make the most out of the moment. The verses are belligerent, boisterous, and trademark Mash Out Posse menacing. This is a great look for Ran, who comes into the track, high-energy, no gimmicks. For Heads looking for a fledgling hardcore Hip-Hop MC, and those seeking the latest M.O.P. attack, look no further.
Crate diggers may know Red Reed from his extensive work in the 1990s with producer Nick Wiz (Cella Dwellas, Rakim, Skillz).
