PREMIERE: MeRCY ‘Featured Presentation’
Straight out the Everglades with some classical boom bap
South Florida emcee Mercy first made his mark in 2011 with a gritty street album called The Prestige. Released through the Illustrious Muzik Group, the album’s dark poetry set the stage for The Prestige 2: Take It In Blood later that year, which saw the emcee connecting with Queensbridge lyricists Nature and Big Noyd. In 2013, he linked with Bishop for a collaborative project My Brother’s Keeper a celebration of rap classicism that’s been described as “old-school and utterly modern.”
Mass Appeal is proud to premiere Mercy’s latest project, Featured Presentation, which finds him coming “Straight out the Everglades” on the solo tip, showcasing his lyrical skills alongside fellow members of the “Rhyme Animals” clique. The 10-track set features guest appearances by Ransom, Dave East, Sean Price, Nature, Ali Vegas, Planet Asia, Skyzoo, and Big Noyd. The majority of the production is held down by New Jersey beatsmith Solidified with Havoc and DJ Wayne Ski stepping in with some bangers. Get ready for some real “Light an L for me and drink and let the record spin” type shit.
