The hard-scrabble New York underground has been festering recently, bubbling up with promising, aesthetically tough East Coast cuts. Queensbridge’s Cormega adds to the boiling pot, teaming up with Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, Saigon and Large Professor to form the supergroup, M.A.R.S., and blast off with their first track of the same name. The streetwise tune lends a look into the psyches of each MC’s Big Apple living, with Saigon threatening to throw a left-hook at your grandpa if he steps the wrong way. “Mars” isn’t for the weary–it’s a reassertion of East Coast stream-of-consciousness rhyming.
Just for the occasion, ‘Mega takes listeners Uptown to introduce the crew via video. Check the introductory visuals below and then listen to the finished product.
