Minneapolis MC’s Muja Messiah, Metasota, Freez & Greg Grease join producer Tek on his new…Like I Never Left
The other song who’s concept really struck me was the "Negro League" song with Muja Messiah, Metasota, Freez, and Greg Grease.
That was going to be a Flood Watch joint, when we were working on that project, which we’re probably still going to finish. That song spearheaded a whole project, we’re gonna do a whole project with me, Greg Grease, Muja Messiah, Freez from Ill 3, and Meta. We’re gonna do a whole project and it’s just gonna be so monster. It’s gonna shut a lot of shit down. I really enjoyed making that song. We were all in the studio at the same time just vibing. We fed off each other’s energy, and me and Greg got a chance to go back through the track and do certain cuts and breakdowns on the beat that catered to how we were rapping. It was a beat that didn’t really even want to use at first, but sometimes those type of beats sound better once you have a concept and some lyrics over it. That was one of those beats where if I was just to hear it playing I’d be like, “Ok, go to the next one,” but for some reason we just made everything come together. - gimmenoiseblog citypages
