Da Cloth member Maverick Montana linked up with Gold Era producer Finn to bring us their collaborative EP, Abracadabra. We get 6 tracks of quality bars over finely crafted melodic beats. The project features Rigz, Asun Eastwood, Mooch, Recognize Ali and Saipher Soze. Each guest had great chemistry with Maverick and fit right into the respective joints they were featured on. This is a free digital download EP exclusively on the Gold Era website.
The tracks were: “Give & Take” ft Rigz, “Foreign Exchange” ft Asun, “99” ft Mooch, “Tell Me” ft Rec Ali, “Tic Tac Toe” which is the only song that has no feature, and “All The Way Strong” ft Saipher Soze. The production is on point without being over the top. I like the way Finn incorporates different elements of sounds such as drums and pianos in a way that’s catchy but doesn’t outdo the lyricists . Maverick spits about the grimiest of hustles and street life situations while acknowledging the risks that come with it.
“You either throwin bullets or you dodge some, just know to keep your feet planted when the charge come” – Maverick Montana on “All The Way Strong”
Finn has had a successful year on the production end and this was a great end of the year release. Maverick executed his verses with ease as did the other emcees that joined him. There is a video out for “Tic Tac Toe” which was shot by Phresh Vision. Be sure to check for this EP, and if you like what you hear, you’ll be pleased to know that vinyl copies will be coming soon.
