Back in June of 2020, M.V.A delivered “Temperature’s Rising” his sonic ode to the turbulent times. Today we’re happy to present to you “From The Land”, which contains that previously released song and five more gems mostly inspired by the rhythms of Africa.
Here’s more about the release by M.V.A himself… “An EP of African inspired hip-hop instrumentals — apart from the first, which features a verse from Cage Lu, a rapper who I collaborated a few times with (starting around 2004) and was slated to make a project together a few years ago. Being that we had roots from two different countries in the Motherland, I wanted the music and project in general to have that vibe but still remain hip-hop. Unfortunately, the collab project never transpired but some, if not all, the tracks here would have been on the project. Shoutout to Cage, one of the nicest poets I’ve ever worked with.”
So please download it and enjoy.
Hey V-Man… thank you for a terrific new release! Big shout also goes out to Cage Lu for his lyrical & poetic contribution.
Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do.
