If you chose not to heed the warning of 18-year-old Cleveland emcee TreaZon and Stay in Your Place, then Mickey Factz and Nero might be called into action. On the remix to Explosion, this genre-reshaping trio looks to showcase why the game needs to be opened to more than just Biggie, Jay-Z and Nas over producer Boi-1da’s block-stomper of a track. Making art of dumb-dumb’s arsenal, Factz displays lyrical proof as to why he’s worthy of more than just a spot on the newest XXL cover. While Nero may not make the devil cry with his witticisms, his position alongside TreaZon and Mickey gives him a chance to increase his time in the spotlight. Off Don Cannon Presents: The Re-Introduction Mixtape, available today, Explosion serves as an example of how far hip-hop has come, as well as its promising future.
