The nerdcore specialist is back at it again! Player 1 Mister Mark Cooper brings us along for a hip-hop infused audible video game in his incredible follow up to last year’s stellar “I Am Player One“.  Incredible indeed! Well traveling through the game Player 1 gets “super lost” on his way to discovering “THE ALLSPARK“. Aided by Optimus Prime & fused with the lyrical creativity of Mark Cooper’s storytelling & production the produces quite the gem. Crown Royal, Magic ft. Key Jay, & Frame Data were some of the early standouts in the first half of “Allspark“. “Frame Data” was like an in your face retro arcade game beat of gold before sliding into the more mellow “Stormtroopers”.

There is commentary from the album’s host throughout as we hear the analyzation’s of Player 1’s own life & lessons.  As we traverse deeper through the game alongside his daunting task to capture the Allspark & return home we are doused with different sounds that scream depth, tying together all the elements & executed precisely in the theme provided.

Super Saiyan” felt like theme music to the ’80s & was a favorite, when we get verses they fit & and truly help build the songs. This album does justice the mashing of different elements outside the verses themselves to provide a cinematic feel that carries a wide range & packs a punch for the listener.

The remainder of the album finishes out just as strong as it’s beginning & middle, I don’t want to spoil the story so you’ll have to listen for yourself to find out if Player 1 ever found his way & got home.  One thing is ensured if you do decide to play the game, it’s one you might just have to play over & over after the first playthrough in this excellent offering from Titan Records Mark Cooper.

Valid - "Mihajlo" + Release Party on May 11th at Underground @ DIME

This Saturday at Underground @ DIME join Valid for the release party behind what I can honestly say is one of my favorite full-lengths to drop in 2019. I’ve had a bit of time to soak in all that is “Mihajlo” and although I want to spend a little more time before dropping my formal review I can definitely say off early impressions that it’s quite a fantastic project.  The eleven songs that grace “Mihajlo” take you on a personal journey in getting to know Valid on a deeper level in a powerful and cohesive way.  The minimal features fit in perfectly such as Elzhi, Mahogany Jones, DJ Los, & Aaron Taylor among others providing their talents in an effective way. I’ll have my full review of the project here in the next couple weeks but besides that this Saturday, you can take in “Mihajlo” live as you celebrate alongside Valid himself plus star-studded performances via Clear Soul Forces, Supa Emcee, & A Minus. Preview the album above & come out this Saturday, May 11th at 9 PM for “The Mihajlo Album Release Party” at 1265 Griswold, Detroit, MI. $10 ENTRY.

Published

on

What’s better than a good old rivalry between two NBA teams in the prime era? Imagine Jordan VS Thomas in rap form, the Bad Boys against the ’90s dynasty that was the BULLS. Well, imagine no longer as the tale of two cities tells itself via two lyrical monsters going back and forth over ten banging records. Make that twelve if you’re copping the physicals – a purchase well spent if you ask me. Yes, Detroit’s own top-notch lyricist TY FARRIS represents the home team, our very own Detroit Pistons as he goes head to head with Chicago emcee WATERR representing the Chicago Bulls. Preview the fire below & take in an old fashioned rivalry with a modern twist for we may not be seeing these two teams in the playoffs with the current state of the NBA but we surely can enjoy these two emcees in champions form on “Bulls VS Pistons“.
