Baltimore’s quick-witted MC Jamil Honesty and UK’s eclectic producer Hobgoblin link up for their first collaborative project titled ‘Martyr Muzik’. The EP features a heavy hitting line-up of emcees including J Scienide, Rome Streetz, Codenine (Tragic Allies), Ace Cannons, and Jay Royale. Legendary DJ Grazzhoppa infiltrates an array of cuts and scratches to carry out the ethereal project.
The EP embodies emotions stemmed from righteousness with tracks like “Martyr Muzik” and “Salvation.” The unstoppable and unbreakable vigilantes describe in gritty detail the strife they endure, personally and in the industry. In a world full of street riots, lynching, and “preached peace and preservation; where’s the salvation?”
The records “Blockah”, “What U Want”, and “I Am” set the tone for a combative standpoint via clever, yet gully wordplay. The pulsating, hard knocking beats and boisterous horns exemplify the message coming from ‘the raging beast’. The ‘Staten Island Verrazano legend’ is exactly what industry mixers and players need; his A-game loaded to slaughter any mic while dodging the foolery.
“Went from coffee cakes and commissary to eating calamari rockin’ leathers like I’m Fonzareli.” “Tapestry” heightens the ‘Godfather’ and ‘Scarface’ revelation that emanates the come up of street wise culprits. While “Scribez” pays homage to real recognizing real, toasting those true to the culture.
Jamil delivers unmatched and unyielding lyrics over Hobgoblin’s thorough production of soulful, worldly tones and street militant beats. ‘Martyr Muzik’ is a euphoric injection for the ears of Hip-Hop purists.
