Hex One feat. Skyzoo - Peep the Steeze

Fueled by today's lack of appreciation and the decline in the art of the lyricist, Hex One's official debut album, after four previous releases with Epidemic, "Words Worth a Thousand Pictures" aims to take a stand for those who are truly masters of their craft.

Technical, yet with a clear and concise message and deeply personal at times, Hex One offers a glimpse into his life as an MC and the world he lives in as seen through the scope of his lens.

Backed by hard headnodic beats, deep, soulful samples with east coast and jazz influences, and booming drums and bass lines, Hex masterfully shatters contemporary society's notion of Hip Hop being a lowbrow genre of music. Despite music itself being highly subjective in nature, he aims to remove some of this subjectivity and boldly proclaim that some art simply takes more skill than others and talent is most certainly measurable.

The ironic disconnect, however, between this measure of talent and the measure of one's success poses to be one of his life's greatest woes. The album is thus presented with a subtle melancholic tone throughout, as he struggles to come to terms with this realization. The bigger irony perhaps being that he does so with the same intricate attention to detail and lyrical prowess that is undervalued and overlooked in Hip Hop's musical landscape today.

His philosophy remains: if a picture is worth a thousand words, so too can a poets words be worth a thousand pictures.

The second single "Peep The Steez" featuring Skyzoo comes with a video, which was shot in Brooklyn/New York.

Hex One "Words Worth A Thousand Pictures" will be released October 13th through Mic Theory Records in digital, streaming, CD, 12" limited vinyl and cassette formats:

M-Dot | "Foreign"

Living through the information age can be a double edged sword, it can unify people / artists globally while also inadvertently creating division and removing individuals from their own environment. This gives way to a unique community of outsiders... ones who have to battle daily to wield a lane for themselves despite not being completely accepted by the consensus. 'Foreign' by Boston emcee and EMS front-man M-Dot, is a single / video that speaks for those disenfranchised outliers.

This 'Ego & The Enemy' [UGHH #1 Seller] extraction, was directed by David Heitzmann who came from Strasbourg, France to shoot the high-energy stylistic visual in Brooklyn, NY. Frequent M-Dot collaborator, producer Jon Glass [The Game, Token, Reks] creates the musical backdrop with an eerie and ominous beat that let's M-Dot showcase a barrage of rapid flows even more fitting in the ghostly cinematic atmosphere. If you haven't heard his debut album 'Ego & The Enemy,' give it a listen and support on Bandcamp or iTunes. #foreign #mdot #jonglass #egoandtheenemy
