We have a few tastes of this project over the past few weeks with leaks such as “CrazY” and “Gets.Ends.Hide.” And after hearing those — and others I admittedly missed — you would be a fool to argue against anyone telling you to check out To Be Continued…Chapter 2 from Detroit MC Magestik Legend.
His music encompasses what made his city explode on the underground scene in the early 2000s.It’s gritty, lyrically heavy, and backed by some of the best production around, thanks to guys like Astronote, Slopfunkdust, Audible Doctor, and 14KT. The guests are kept to a minimum here, which allows you to focus on Magestik’s rhymes and songwriting skills. Although the two features from fellow Motor City rappers Buff1 and T. Calmese ain’t nothing to sneeze at.
And for those wondering, this mixtape is the precursor to a proper full-length, The Great Escape, due out Nov. 30. You can stream To Be Continued…Chapter 2 below and download it here.
