“Murder Rap” is taken from Meyhem Lauren and DJ Muggs’ upcoming joint project, “Gems From The Equinox”, due out November 10th. Pre-order here.
Meyhem Lauren’s “Gems From The Equinox” is the crown jewel of modern NY rap. A future classic soundtracked by legendary producer DJ Muggs who has redefined dusty hip-hop production into a polished and dark, psychedelic world. The equinox is the one day of the year where day and night are the exact same length and this is the perspective of this album; the equal balance of darkness and the light. The project chronicles the urban decay and wild experiences only to be found in the New York underworld from the perspective of an intelligent hoodlum, Londell Manuver, AKA Meyhem Lauren. Sonic influences from elements of Cypress Hill’s Black Sunday, Mobb Deep’s Hell On The Earth and Capone and Noreaga’s The War Report. The album features include the likes of Action Bronson, B-Real, Roc Marciano, Sean Price Conway, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire and more.
