Meyhem Lauren and DJ Muggs are still hungry. We saw the success of last year’s project, Gems From The Equinox. Now the Queens based emcee and the LA based DJ have returned with their latest offering, an 8 track EP with no guest appearances, called Frozen Angels. They’ve wasted no time dropping a video of the same name to accompany the release. I don’t know about you but I was already digging the title alone, and had to check it immediately.
The video was directed by The Infamous Oz in New York. I love the low color visuals and how it switches back and forth throughout the video, all in a dark style theme to capture the late night tip. You also see a pair of hands playing a harp. There are no crazy loud and bold colors here, it’s simple and low-key, without taking away from the quality.
Both Meyhem Lauren and DJ Muggs are featured in the video and it’s about 2 1/2 minutes long. Both deliver in their respective crafts, Meyhem dropping metaphors that match Muggs’ hard, gritty boom bap beats that are always out of this world. I always find myself drawn to those who don’t follow trends.
If you haven’t checked the video out yet, don’t waste anymore time. The EP is available at soulassassins.com and is limited edition, with your choice of silver or gold vinyl. It looks lovely, so make sure to get your hands on a copy before they run out.
