Here in the The DJBooth, we are all hip-hop all the time, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like a little EDM and some rock, too; it just isn’t very often that all three come rolled up into one hi-octane jam. Of course, the most important part of My Own Worst Remedy is its hip-hop foundation (My viewpoint is totally unbiased, of course.) and, thanks to Lex One and Mike Beatz, we get it in spades. The collaborators showcase two similarly high-energy, aggressive flows atop the track’s frenetic beat. Speaking of the production, all credit goes to UK duo JC & Lloyd, whose thunderous, ever-changing arrangement incorporates some electronic undertones. Good news for fans of the two KMG Records artists (who haven’t been featured in a hot minute); My Own Worst Remedy is the lead single off a forthcoming collaborative album, entitled No Prisoners, which is due out this summer.
Update: We have added the Alex Engel-directed visuals for Lex One and Mike Beatz’ My Own Worst Remedy single.
