If you know me, you know I love hip-hop. Not just any hip-hop though, I’m pretty critical and my taste hasn’t really changed since junior high. I grew up listening to Tribe, Gangstarr, Wu, The Roots, etc, etc. I’ve been making beats as a hobby now for well over 10 years but never really had the ambition to pursue it any further than that really. I heard Mars Jackson for the first time last Summer and I knew from the first listen that he had that vibe I loved. After a late night twitter exchange a few months ago, I sent him a beat I had been working on and he asked about putting on his upcoming mix tape, HYPECHILL. Of course I was excited that he dug the beat in the first place but to have a track on his mixtape was extra special. The finished product came out really dope. Check it out below, it’s #2 “High Class Society.” Don’t stop there though, the entire project is really fresh. Listen, download and share with your fellow hip-hop nerds and music lovers. Mars is making moves.
