Tame and El team up, reuniting for a rare appearance with Redefinition Records for their latest single “All Points Bulletin (APB).” Seattle’s Def Dee deftly handles the production duties on Side-A and Germany’s Klaus Layer runs the remix on the flip side, but please understand: this is a “Nu Jeruz” affair. With that said, Redef provides a home for the two veteran MCs to showcase their talents sans the restrictions and constraints of a corporate machine exerting its will to mold the artists into something artificial versus “artifact”ual. The music takes on an organic feel and leaves the listener feeling like Tame and El haven’t missed a beat. Rounding out the north NJ connection is K-Def, who lends his mastering prowess to the project. This synergy is felt through geographical bonds and an overall desire to make the best art possible, with more music coming to a speaker near you.

THIS IS MY 10,000th POST.PEACE TO MNDSGN.
Kids these days hit up mom and dad for a new IPad or laptop for “school” only to then start making and posting the wackest fucking beats and “rap” on the internet that you’ve ever heard. In steps MNDSGN straight out the jungle , yes the jungle , of the Philippine’s where he was raised with his parents in a cult. They escaped , and made way to the USA where he made his first beats in Philly. Do not let this pass you by.
