Having grown up in poverty and spent several years in jail, well-traveled MC Maino isn’t the type to be fazed by the negativity of critics or naysayers. For the first time in his lengthy rap career, which included an empty pit stop at Universal, the Brooklyn-born rapper is on the cusp of releasing his long-awaited debut album, If Tomorrow Comes…. Kicking off the project is the lyrically-polished Hi Hater; a song that nicely waves at all the “haters” who for whatever reason have nothing better to do than hate. Co-produced by Maino and South Bronx’s own Mista Raja, the simplified throwback beat allows for Maino’s lyrics to take center stage; ensuring all the haters hear loud and clear that they are welcome.
