Mayhem Lauren- "Special Effects" ft. Heems, Action Bronson (prod. Harry Fraud)

New MusicadminComment

Ever since I caught New York MC Mayhem Lauren's last album, Self Induced Illness, I've been crossing my fingers in hopes that great things will come to this guy. His old school delivery, heavy voice, and gritty personality are exactly what I look for in hip hop like this. Surprisingly, his cohort Action Bronson has been doing a lot better when it comes to popularity, but maybe 2012 is Lauren's year.

This cosign from Das Racist's Heems might help. This punchy beat from Harry Fraud couldn't hurt either.

From what I understand, this track is from a forthcoming project titled Respect the Fly Shit, which is being presented in part by LRG and the Das Racist-curated label Greedhead. Should be the push this guy needs to get out there.
