The last week has been good for music in Minneapolis & Saint Paul. A couple of days ago, Mike The Martyr and TIIIIIIIIIIP dropped Ghost Dose, a 14 track jaunt hosted by TIIIIIIIIIIP himself. Martyr continues to drop heat whether he’s producing or rapping, Ghost Dose has that “golden-era” mix-tape feel with new tracks mixed between freestyles over classic instrumentals. TIIIIIIIIIIP’s hosting only adds to the listening value along with a bunch of cameos from familiar favorites like Muja Messiah, Mike Mictlan, Axel Foley, Big Dylan, Finding Novyon and MORE. Mike’s laid back, but extremely witty style impresses throughout the tape, pure Southside dope. Check out Ghost Dose below and keep an eye out for more from Mike The Martyr.
