In a musical climate that lives for luxury rap and trap beats, it’s fair to say that finding a “new” emcee that deviates from the trapstar formula is rare. But head to the South Bronx where you’ll find MC Gels– the anomaly in this new age of Hip Hop for a refreshing change of pace.
MC Gels’ new single ‘Dreams’ boasts a smooth flow and a bouncy tempo that gives you an old school feel with modern flair. Aided by the production of Chief Rugged, a sick verse from MC Shinobi and vocals by Sa.Mu.Ra., talks dream chasing despite the odds, nixing the stereotype that if you’re from the South Bronx, you only make it out by way of homicides.
“See my aspirations seem more realistic ,’cuz I’d rather be an emcee than another statistic.”
The Bronx newcomer has certainly taken the road less traveled when it comes to new music, and I completely support. With this joint serving as a single from him upcoming album, I’m anticipating a strong debut from the young spitta.
