If you’re defined by the company you keep, then ¡MAYDAY! are well on their way to underground legendhood—simply put, the Panhandle State crew have been rubbing shoulders with giants. Currently accompanying label boss Tech N9ne on his All 6’s and 7’s tour, the Panhandle State crew have also found the time to hook up with West Coast veteran Del The Funky Homosapien to record new promo single The Ride. As usual, crew member Plex Luthor keeps it moody and left-of-center on the production tip, layering spare guitar riffs and buzzing bass over a lurching breakbeat as Wrek and Bernbiz taunt their competition with ominous lyrical pronouncements, “Ain’t nobody gonna make it out alive/ Born alone die alone, that’s the ride…” On the front, Sir Diesel adopts a gravelly flow to match the cut’s dark tone, threatening, “Anybody that come through the hall, [I’ll] shoot ‘em in the balls” but ultimately concluding: “Tragedy can make the petty situations dumb small.” Though this brooding banger isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, those digging it can keep it locked you-know-where for anything and everything ¡MAYDAY!.
