There’s no need to reinvent the wheel with the latest from Baltimore emcee Jamil Honesty and UK producer HobGoblin. They team up once again bring us Martyr Musik 2: The kingdom.
The lead single “The Fabric” sets the tone for the sequel to their 2018 release. “The Fabric” gives us an airy feel, reminiscent of stepping into a church and hearing the powerful choir, fortifying your soul with the essential elements at just the right time.
“Heavy is the head that wears the crown of thorns….. its a steady march soldier, not a marathon… trying make it to the kingdom that’s what’s paramount.”
More of a breath of fresh air, upon first listen MM2 seems very well crafted with a clear strong cohesiveness between the producer and emcee. The sharp delivery and in-depth wordplay from Jamil lends us his point of a view as we sit upon the shoulders of this evolving lyrical giant. That is something many rappers lack nowadays; being a true master of ceremony while providing a majestic tone. Features from Da Cloth emcee MAV, along with guest spots from other talented spitters like P.U.R.E., Josiah The Gift , Pgenz, Squeegie-O, Juga-Naut, and Ace Cannons all give this project a well-rounded appeal. Martyr Musik II is an impressive sequel, allowing to be more than merely a Hip-hop album
Expect more from Jamil Honesty and HobGoblin as a dope pairing but also as separate artists in their own right. With MM2 they prove that if you keep the same formula with the right talent, then great music will follow.
