After tirelessly working on his debut EP for over a year and a half, Merakai shows us the fruits of this labor intensive process with his top tier first track named ‘Knighted‘ (feat. Skyzoo, Hype and Chinch 33).
Jorge aka Merakai, is a California-based Hip-Hop music producer who cleverly gets a variety of top notch underground artists to join him on his well-produced tracks.
Featuring an all-star lineup and outstanding samples so dope you might need to turn this up even louder, you feel like you have fallen back into the peak 90’s when Hip-Hop seemed to be at its purest form. The ambiance takes you to three-point places – that has you swooshing up with those smartly-penned metaphors – that seem to be missing from most radio playlists for some mystifying reason.
”I just dropped my first singe featuring underground legend Skyzoo and up-and-coming rapper Hype. The song is produced by me and features scratches from the talented Chinch 33. The song is a throwback to classic NY underground Boom Bap like DJ Premier, Apollo Brown, etc.” ~ Merakai
‘Knighted‘ (feat. Skyzoo, Hype and Chinch 33) from the well-respected California-based music producer Merakai, is that upper echelon track that has you bouncing your head like it was the good days. There is so much to love about a world class track with that extra punch, that slides into your atmospheric lens and leaves that sweet taste in your ravenous palate.
This is easily one of the best Hip-Hop tracks you will hear in 2021, as its just filled with that natural flow, classic samples and incredibly tasty production. Just the way we like it right?
