While M-Dot works out the finishing touches on egO anD The eneMy 2: A Dissolute Paradise—the full length sequel to his acclaimed 2017 released, egO anD The eneMy LP—the Boston native prepares listeners with the project’s debut leak, a fiery collaboration produced by none other than Pete Rock.
As M-Dot tells it, he and the legendary producer met in 2017 when they were on the same bill for a show in Switzerland. The two showed mutual admiration for their talents and kept in touch ever since, eventually leading to their making music together.
The first result of that work is The Atonement, a bars-first, punishing track that demonstrates M-Dot’s love for the art of rhyming. He flexes some crazy patterns and internal rhymes atop Pete’s fittingly chilling instrumental, leaving us hoping that this is the only the first of many collaborations we hear from them this year.
In addition to Pete Rock, “egO anD The eneMy 2” boasts production and guest appearances from the likes of Erick Sermon, Apollo Brown, !llmind, M-Phazes, Method Man, Willie The Kid, Vast Aire, and more.
The single is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms through his Own Lane Music imprint. Keep an eye out for more content off “egO 2” coming soon, and be sure to peep his upcoming European tour dates below which kicks off in Friday, March 06 in Switzerland with The Beatnuts.
