Mello Music Group: Special


DJ and hip-hop nerd Tolle from Arizona is the man behind the rising label "Mello Music Group". Founded in 2007 MMG represents a clear vision of the hip-hop culture in America at present. It reminds me a little bit to the Rawkus era where a label signed a lot of talented MC's, DJs and Producers and formed a massive discography in a very short time.

Since five years the label signed artists like Oddisse, yU, Gensu Dean, Apollo Brown, Declaime, Hassaan Mackey, OC and many others. The number or releases became almost bigger than 70 including vinyl, CDs and digital output.

We want to dedicate this post to a couple of releases that need your special consideration. First of all we have the album and single release of Gensu Dean. The 7inch "Forever" got posted in Feb '12 on SBS but the full-length album "Lo-Fi Fingahz" also represents his dope sound and the swirl blue colored vinyl has an optical attraction too.


Next on the agenda is the album of "yU" named "the EARN". As part of the group Diamond District (yU, Oddisse, XO) the MC from Washington also performs solo and already convinced on his single debut "Before Taxes". The 2LP is 17 tracks strong and comes on money green vinyl.


Go and check out vast numbers of Oddisse releases. Nuff said! (haha) and when you do this you should also check the solo and collabo releases of Hassaan Mackey and Apollo Brown. New York MC Hassaan Mackey rhymes like a raw vision of the streets while Detroit producer Apollo Brown lays the sonic foundation with hard drums and big bass. Their collabo album "Daily Bread" brings to mind an old photograph that bangs out the system.

Last but not least I have to entrust everybody the "Mello Music Group 7" Series" with releases of Boog Brown (MMG7001), Gensu Dean (MMG7002), Oddisee (MMG7003) and DJ Soko ft. Guilty Simpson (MMG7004).

My special thanks goes out to MMG and all artists involved. All copyrights reserved by the label and its artists, posted for promotion use only.
