Miz MAF – “Act Right”

unnamed

In the clip for the Philly MC’s latest banger, he drops words of wisdom for the younger generation to abide by, and he also provides a visual that was inspired by one of Ice Cube’s most iconic music videos.

About a month and a half after unveiling the video for “That White” featuring fellow Philadelphia rapper Freeway, Miz MAF returns with his latest banger, “Act Right.” Throughout the hypnotic track, produced by Mello Dee Beats, Double M uses his energetic pinpoint flow to masterfully emphasize the message of coming correct in the streets.

The MC accomplishes that with sharp, direct, and fairly-repetitive lines that’ll stay on the brain for days, like with the rhyme, “When you out there doin’ your thing, you better make sure you’re true to the game / ‘Cause when you’re out there fuckin’ the game up, the game gonna fuck up your name.”

As a product, and veteran, of the streets, Miz MAF feels its his responsibility to pass along these gems of knowledge.

Devine Carama – “10 Blog Commandments”

B5BHnQQCMAAQ-5P

I wrote an article years ago called the “10 Hip Hop Blog & Website Commandments” and have had a Google Alert set up for it since.

I received a notification today about this song and figured I’d check it out since I wrote an article with a very similar title. I was pleasantly surprised with the joint and his 10 commandments were pretty spot on. Delivery and cadence matched the lyrics, overall a solid record. He even knew my good friend, Praverb, who recently passed away at an early age.

Give the record a listen, it’s worth it.
