Heart Skips A Beat – MaG’s “Freedom”

MaG (yes, that’s how prefers it be spelled) is a New York based MC out of the Bronx who describes his rap style for us on the track streaming below “Freedom” in movie metaphor: “My flow? / Ocean’s 11.” This song is off his most recent EP of the same name, and his forthcoming LP, also called Freedom is hosted by DJ Mick Boogie and sponsored by RCRDLBL.com.

I’m not sure what that sample he’s using with all the horns is but I love it. Reminds me of some of the stuff Jay-Z uses on Blueprint 3. I’ve been listening to a lot more hip-hop/rap lately, especially for work, and I like the direction this guy is going in. Another great line “We just throw it in the air / And we say screw ladders.” He also name checks Lupe and Obama in the same verse, which is pretty sweet.
