“They call us nigg*rs, take our culture from us. Gotta deal with Iggy’s and them Macklemores. Black girls was twerking they was screaming “whores!” But Miley did it and she got a tour.”
OG Maco ditches his usual style on this Breathe EP. While still bringing the same amount of raw, angry energy, he channels it into a more thought-out approach. Rapping about race relations in America, Darren Wilson, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and more.
The tape progresses nicely. Starting with “Get Down,” produced by Chuck Inglish, the song is pretty calm and leads nicely into the next track, “Do Better.” “Do Better” is another relatively laid back track, for Maco’s standards, which starts to pick up midway through, in content and tempo. On the final track of the EP, “Riot,” Maco airs everything out. He’s fed up and angry, screaming “Let’s destroy the system, I demand a riot.”
