For the past eight years Mello Music Group releases have been a staple in my Hip Hop diet. Today the label announces that they will be releasing a compilation project titled “Persona” which “unveils the murderer’s row that is the Mello roster of 2015.” The project will be released on March 10th and features the work of Oddisee, Apollo Brown, yU, L’Orange, Red Pill, Open Mike Eagle, Rapper Big Pooh, Quelle Chris teamed up with timeless innovators like Phonte (Little Brother), Blockhead, Ras Kass, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), Oh No, Masta Ace, and Bilal Salaam.
Today Mello Music Group gives us the first offering, a smooth track produced by Oddisee and featuring himself along with Phonte on the vocal tip. “Requiem” finds Oddisee and Phonte waxing poetic about the issues we are going through today and finding a better way.
Be on the lookout for more from “Persona” and Mello Music Group in the future.
