Mike The Martyr – Clouds

In honor of the late great J Dilla, Minneapolis’ own Mike The Martyr dropped some newness for all of our listening pleasure. A classic instrumental from off of Common’s album, Be, Mike make’s it his with a steady stream of heavy hitting punchlines. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Martyr is one of the most overlooked spitters in the Twin Cities. A perfect way to pay homage to one of hip hop’s fallen legends, peep “Clouds” above and stay tuned for more from Mike The Martyr.

Mike The Martyr x Metasota x Baby Shel – Eggs

Mike The Martyr has been dropping loosies as of late, one of which features Metasota and Baby Shel. The laid back instrumental fits each artist well, Martyr goes in first with a punch line heavy verse leading into Baby Shel on the hook. Metasota shows off his lyrical prowess attacking the beat with a flow unmatched by many in Minnesota. A quick record for those patiently awaiting projects from Mike The Martyr and Metasota, check out “Eggs” above and stay tuned for more.

Mike The Martyr x Franz Diego – “Wag Team Exclusive”

A nice 1, 2 punch, both artists deliver a pair of lighthearted verses; it’s clear that they had fun with this one. Check out “Wag Team Exclusive” above and stay tuned for more from Mike The Martyr and Franz Diego.
