Fresh off earning rave reader reviews for last month’s aptly-titled Fire, MidaZ The Beast returns to our pages with another blazing-hot song release off his forthcoming debut album. On Champion of the Block, a head-noddable instrumental by IMAKEMADBEATS sets the stage for one of the most intricate opening 16s I’ve heard in a minute. At its heart, the record is an artistic mission statement; scoffing at the conformism that’s taken hold of the hip-hop game, the Orlando rhymesayer pledges to “cater to the few and tell the many to suck my jimmy long.” Guest spitter Illustrate echoes the headliner’s commitment to lyrical excellence on the back end. Like what you’re hearing? More bangers await on MidaZ The BEAST’s AU: Another Universe street album, set to hit The DJBooth next Tuesday (8/20) for streaming and digital purchase.
