Though Mayday and Chris Reg of M.A.S.H. are new to the Booth, the Newark, NJ twosome are more than ready to take charge; on this newly-released single, they waste no time in letting listeners know “We Run This.” How did they end up this position of power? Through plenty of hard work, of course—in high-energy verses, the duo describe the ceaseless grind that brought them this far and their sky-high ambitions for the future. The laid-back yet driven rhymes both emcees bring to the cut, as well as Shy Boogz’ midtempo, synth-heavy instrumental and an uncredited singer’s Autotuned hook combine to make We Run This a prime candidate for club rotation, and you know what they say: the rappers that rock the dancefloor are the rappers that rule the world (okay, that’s a loose paraphrase). M.A.S.H.‘s latest LP, Mic Addict Stash House, has yet to receive a release date; keep it locked to the Booth for further details.
