Mr. Lif & Akrobatik Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em With Heavy Rhymes & Hard Drums (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

In late July, Boston MCs Mr. Lif and Akrobatik revived The Perceptionists. The former Def Jux group (which then featured DJ Fakts One) made a strong return on Resolution (which premiered at Ambrosia For Heads), releasing through the Mello Music Group—a label that may be reminiscent of El-P’s 2000s imprint.

The Perceptionists Survived Near Death Experiences To Make A 2nd Album. Listen Early.

One of the jewels of that project is “Dirty Drumz.” The straightforward theme succeeds in a visual, while Lif and Ak’ give the people what they think they need. The beat is, in fact, dirty, allowing the two MCs to make a powerful impression. The verses show that the message is more than just rapping about Hip-Hop. Rather, the drum—an instrument used rallying troops for centuries is one that unifies the people of the culture together for a common cause. “We don’t plan to run,” charges Lif.
