Catfish Vegas favorite SumKid Majere has come out with one hell of an mixtape, "Plush Grizzle." It's no surprise that he throws together jazz, blues, hip-hop and rock and makes it all flow.
His style as an MC is a mish-mash of the sounds of his various stomping grounds, Chicago Atlanta, North Carolina, Los Angeles and New York styles. He's informed and influenced by too much to pin down easily, but aside from stylistic origins, there's no doubt that Sum is one of the master lyricists of hip-hop today, who can handle utterly fascinating and detailed imagery just as well an absurd stream-of-consciousness flow.
He's also got plenty more in the works for this year - sign up for Sum's mailing list at ReverbNation.
