Don’t you hate how hip hop doesn’t have any positive messages anymore? Don’t you hate how hip hop music doesn’t sound like New York anymore? Don’t you just hate it?
We don’t. Because we know about groups like M-Tri & DJ Leecy T, one of New York City’s coolest hip hop duos dropping classic-sounding, positive-vibed, fun hip hop music.
Wait, what? An actual DJ with an actual MC? What a novel idea!
“Advice,” the latest from the duo featuring AtLas’ and the inimitable Homeboy Sandman, follows a solid trend of feel-good, boom-bap-influenced music that started with M-TRI’s solo project Max Talkin’ Real Ism. With the official addition of DJ Leecy T, they are now a dynamic duo delivering nostalgia-tingling hip hop.
So, when you hear someone complaining that they can’t relate to “today’s hip hop,” instead of staying stuck in the past, tell them to check out M-TRI & DJ Leecy T, starting with videos like “Suicidal Hype Shit” and “The Grease,” and finishing up with their latest, “Fun 4U” and “M-Triumph“.
It’s good advice.
