It's official everyone, summer has come down to a close. Ibiza season is over, school's are picking back up, and Halloween decorations are going back up the wall. While this may be sad news for some out there, rapper MTown seems to be ready to greet Fall like a friend, and has presented the world with #Summersend, a twelve track tape filled with stunning production and lyrical gold.
#Summersend is a journey that explores the many facets of MTown and dives straight into his personal experiences. Beginning with a white noise based announcement in "Goodbye Miss Summer," he continues on with this dreamy sequence for the first half of the album until "Be Proud of Me," which holds a more electronic-based beat, working as a perfect interlude to the slowed down nature of "40 oz." "Yea Pt. 2" is one of the biggest standouts, with showstopping lyrics and a dynamic flow that flows perfectly throughout. He changes it up on "Luxury Cars," with a faster, harder edge to his relaxed flow, and ends with "N. Elm Street "White Impala Pt. 2,"" which works as a perfect middle ground between the slow dreamy vibe of the first half and the harder style of the tracks right before. Overall, the unity of the album combines to be a great representation of MTown and his work. He may not be a household name quite yet, but hip hop heads take note- this North Carolina native is ready to take over.
