Reviewing other people’s creative when you’re one yourself can be such trip if im being honest. I’ve known MIK through his exploits with the skilled crew S.E.G, his music production and just out here in the small Southern African capital Gaborone. Mikhail shared two joints with me over a week ago and it took me a bit to get to the, possibly because i was intimidated by the work he’d shared. First up ‘Mrs Gabz City’, the joint has a nice laid back track with a bass reminiscent of the Tupac and Daz Dillinger’s work (you gotta be from the old school to understand this), in it he chronicles the story of a girl caught up in the city lights, “the kinda girl that kiss and go tell”. Just press play and enjoy the music
The beats are swavy, not sure what that means but it really seems to be a fitting descriptor to this song. On it MIK flexes with ease, “doing it like a pimp do…it aint what you used to”. The arrangement is stellar, the sounds super experiment but arrives at a very confident composition proving that the boing indeed got the juice.
