This year has been awesome for me as a music fan. I've met plenty of creatives in the Arizona scene and beyond who have released great material in 2017. JD & Ma$termind gifted us with the first 20 Pounds single. One thing is certain and it's that they did not disappoint. I enjoyed this record it had outstanding production which made you feel in peace. It is wild but when I heard the noise in the background it left me thinking "What the hell is that?" Nawlidge Nick did his thing with this beat he also shined by showcasing his beat making abilities. -Royal Cortez
20 Pounds is a team that solidified themselves with me a long time ago. Every single member is a talented creative whose only limit is the sky itself. The teammates I will cover today are the gifted lyricists who go by the name of JD & Ma$termind. I want to start this write up off by saying I wish this joint was a bit longer. But it is a exceptional offering that allows them to exhibit their lyricism and chemistry. Their chemistry can equal Ken and Ryu's in the way they work together. They go off each other perfectly they're in sync and in shows.
Nawlidge Nick definitely made a huge difference Dead Wrong. I already knew JD & Ma$termind always deliver bars wise but the only thing I was worried about was the production. Sadly sometimes beat selection can be a lyricist's weakest trait. They calmed those fears when they got Nawlidge Nick get involved. He produced my favorite records off of 2 Thingz 4 Certain so my expectations where set pretty high. I'm hoping to hear more songs from all 3 of them. They have superb beat selection that will make them many more fans.
I haven't had the opportunity to scope 20 Pounds team mates besides Jalopy Bungus. Dead Wrong got me genuinely excited about them. With this record alone JD & Ma$termind sparked my interest in checking out more of their content. These are the type of artists I like to get behind. I've always been a fan of rappers first so when I hear cats like them dropping material of this quality it makes me happy I chose to write for a blog. I'm a blogger and everything else last I've always been a fan of music first. They ended the year perfectly with this joint now I'm hoping to hear more tracks from them in the near future!
