REVIEW: M-ez - Power - Dropping Aug 6th


August 6th sees the long awaited release for what is promised to be the 'album of the year' by M-ez; 'Power'.
It might seem to be a wild claim but M-ez does not disappoint with a selection of powerful tracks including the title track which has to be one of the tracks of the year and should be destined for great things.
Let me break down the album track by track:

1. King Us (Intro)
Ez lays it down how it is in his world over a rich majestic beat. When he says 'We run the world not Beyonce' you believe its honesty in his belief.

2. The Power
The infectious hook starts off this tale of hope and success in the face of the struggle and dominates the track throughout. Lyrically Ez takes you along as part of his team over a triumphant beat, leading a justified charge against the haters and stamping the fact he's made it all over their ice grills.

3. Black-Ugly-Evil
Reminiscent of Kanye from the beat to the flow, this track uses a Martin Luthor King sample with just as much ingenuity as anything from Mr West to great effect. Lyrically Ez's braggadocio style also matches Ye ego to ego.

4. Can't Save You Ft. Roman 610
Straight spittin over this barnstormer of a track from Ez with an impressive verse from Roman. There's no saving those wack emcees from this banger!

5. I Illuminate
The tempo is brought back down a notch with this laid back track where Ez's conversational style switches between what feels like boasts (though never idle) and straight honesty. Blaze an L to this one.

6. Day Dreamin
Another laid back affair that sees Ez shouting out family, friends, and associates, giving credit where due.

7. Le Grand Roi ft Lazo
Lazo lends his auto-tuned vocal talents to this made for radio summer jam. Perfect for relaxing in the sun or cruisin past those flashing lights reflecting off the tints.

8. Im Too Much
This track is on some smooth pimp shit with vocal snippets from Black Dynamite with a dope sampled beat.

9. Pick It Up Ft. Lazo
A certified club banger featuring Lazo on hook duties.

10. Talk To Me Ft. Mouse Dollas
Another example of dope sampling on this track where Ez talks to the track and invites you to listen. Mouse is also very impressive on his guest verse.

11. Overture
A bangin beat serves as the perfect platform for Ez to ruggedly go in on.

12. Church
Ez beats down demons both internal and external on his way to higher ground over yet another dope beat.

13. After Church
This is one powerful beat that sees Ez lyrically letting off at his enemies and those who would dare test his dominance in the game.

14.God Rap (Outro) Ft. Roman 610
Ez spits some straight fire over a fluid but rough beat while Roman gets his Big Rube on and sees out the album with some jewels to make you think.

M-ez clearly feels he has something to prove. This is evident throughout the album but what also becomes clear after a listen is that he has nothing to prove. With a flow that switches between Jay, Kanye, and Bleek at times, Ez is reminiscent of a one man Rocafella but with an honesty that is more relatable than some of their more recent releases. The album has a confidence and self belief that is fully justified. With the right push this album could easily sit up there with the great releases from any of the aforementioned artists (dont sleep on Bleek). Dust off the throne for the new arrival.

Graffiti Rock 30th Anniversary KickStarter Campaign

30th Anniv. release of the first ever Hip Hop TV Show, "Graffiti Rock", & new Hip Hop documentary "Graffiti Rock: The Untold Story"

In 1984, I, Michael Holman, was successful in producing and broadcasting the first ever, nation-wide, Hip Hop variety television show, Graffiti Rock. The show featured Run DMC's greatest televised performance ever (of "Sucker M.C.'s"), as well as Kool Moe Dee and Special K of The Treacherous Three, The New York City Breakers, and a studio dance crowd that included the likes of young Vincent Gallo (Buffalo 66, Brown Bunny) and Debi Mazar (Goodfellas, L.A. Law, Entourage).

“Graffiti Rock was an incredible show...                     Michael Holman was a genius.”                               ~ Debi Mazar (on Jimmy Kimmel Live)


 Soon, it will be the 30th Anniversary of the airing of Graffiti Rock and through your contributions, we will re-master the 1 inch broadcast video tape of the show (on to DVD) as well as produce a new, feature length film called Graffiti Rock: The Untold Story. Graffiti Rock: The Untold Story will be an in-depth documentary that captures the memories and reactions of today's Hip Hop celebrities to first seeing Graffiti Rock, and how it impacted their lives. The documentary will also capture the "behind the scenes" making of Graffiti Rock, as well as my own personal experiences and accomplishments as a Hip Hop Pioneer, helping to introduce Hip Hop Culture to New York's Downtown Art Scene and eventually to the rest of the world.
  

“Graffiti Rock is the Soul Train of Hip Hop.”          

Ricky Powell (photographer)

Be a part of this groundbreaking launch, by sharing it with your friends & readers. By pledging to the campaign, you will experience what Hip Hop Culture looked and felt like in the old school days of 1984, and it just might change Hip Hop Culture for the better!
