Available on iTunes, Spotify & any other online retailer.
Favorite Tracks: “One 4 O’Shea”, “Magic 8-Ball”, “Inner City Tantrum” & “Boys & Girls Club”
Yo, I fucks with Mic Capes. I love his flow and the stories he’s telling are so important for today’s youth and the World period. Don’t sleep on Mic or this project. Slap it at least once and absorb some realness. He definitely has crept up as a new MCC favorite. & the interlude’s are dope too! Ahhh, this shit is filthy.
Favorite Track: “The ILLZ”
If you’re looking for some heavy rap this is it. The sound is pretty consistent through out the project. The message is what’s important on this one, it’s worth your time.
Favorite Tracks: “Jansport” & “The ILLZ”
I first heard Mic Capes at Gifted Gab’s album release show and I’ve been feelin his music since then. I like his sound a lot, it’s familiar and it slaps. This album is long but not a bad thing, and I feel like I know Mic Capes more after listening to this!
Favorite Tracks: “The ILLZ”, “15 Cents”, & “Black Pearls”
This definitely was a chill ass mixtape. I rated the mixtape 3 bombs because I think that the beats could have been a little better on some of the songs. But I think it’s definitely worth listening too if your looking for some new music! Check it out!
Favorite Tracks: “Chains”, “Jansport”, “Razor Tongue”, “15 Cents” & “No More”
Mic Capes does a magnificent job portraying Black America and the current state of affairs on his Concrete Dreams project. From the start of Chains, I knew this would be a pleasure listening to. He keeps rooted in classic Hip Hop structure all the while bringing the culture into today’s mainstream production realm. Mic’s lyrical content remains at the forefront thru nearly the entire course of the album, which is something that’s been lacking in much of today’s music. If he continues moving in this lane, his career will achieve longevity within the music industry.
