Cormega is a legendary MC from Queens, New York known for being an original member of The Firm. Since his departure from the group shortly after their formation, he has gone onto release a handful of solo efforts including The Realness and Born & Raised. However, it’s been 4 years since the release of his Large Professor produced 5th album Mega Philosophy & now he’s finally returning alongside StreetRunner with his 1st EP.
The EP begins with “Say No More”, where Mega spits battle bars over a luscious beat. The next track “On Everything” talks about self esteem over a soulful beat while the song “Live Your Best Life” with Havoc pretty much speaks for itself over a vocal sample with some drums overpowering it. The penultimate track “Genuine Article” talks about his over a smooth piano-heavy instrumental & then the EP finishes with “Empty Promises”, which is a fitting sequel to the opener.
Overall, this was a pretty solid EP. Mega still has the passion & lyricism & the StreetRunner production was better than I had anticipated, but I was hoping that we got about 2 or 3 more tracks. That being said, I am looking forward to the album in 2019.
