A SpeedontheBeat.com rookie teams up with a vet to paint a bit of a dream team flow. East Elmhurst, Queens native MRG, high school baseball star turned rapper, hit me with this one in my inbox yesterday. I'd honestly never heard much from MRG before last night. But, I'm kind of mad that I didn't, as he's got a nice flow and a great storytelling ability. Aided by Schama Noel (a/k/a Mr. Rap Like) and produced by DJ Mostwanted, "Pastel" lets listeners peer into both artists' mindsets and hear a bit of their story in a way that doesn't put everything out--but what comes out warrants at least a second look. So, I actually did take a second look at MRG.
I'm sold. He's got skills. Check him out.
