MidaZ The BEAST may not possess his namesake’s ability to turn everyday objects into gold, but he can transform organic matter into blackened carbon with a few well-aimed syllables. Simply put, his bars are Fire. On this newly-released single, his first feature since December ‘09’s Creation, the Orlando rhymesayer laces a characteristically grimy Marco Polo beat with rhymes so hot you may need to stop, drop and roll after listening. Not to be outdone, Long Island lyricist Roc Marciano turns in a more understated, but equally scorching performance on the record’s closing verse. If you can take the heat, more blistering bangers await on MidaZ’ AU: Another Universe LP, due out August 20, via HiPNOTT Records.
