Moviehood TV (MHTV) has just dropped their latest mixtape Above The Streets Vol. II featuring new music from the hottest artists in the DMV: Fat Trel, Shy Glizzy, Lightshow, Garvey, Slutty Boyz and Fatz Da Big Fella. This project is the second of the MHTV series following the successful 2013 release of Above The Streets Vol. I.
Above The Streets Vol. II is jam packed with booming club bangers and menacing trap rhymes. The 32 track compilation includes three bonus songs, and one of them, the "Believe Me Freestyle" by Overtyme Simms and JuJu, could be the best effort on the mixtape. Simms and JuJu take turns spitting laser sharp lyrics over a head nodding track. Other standout songs are "Back Seat" by Gorilla Slim, Visto and Droboi Felipe; "Waiting For Sunshine" by Ali Kulture and Young Moe; and "200 Pair" a sneakerhead anthem by Big D.
MHTV uses their mixtape as a platform to give exposure to up and coming talent like Syco T, who shines on "Dream Big" - but they also allow DMV veteran Gabby Moe and Houston rap legend Devin The Dude to blaze the mic on the smokers tribute "Get High". This track is composed using classic go-go percussion and it sounds great on CD, but it will sound even better performed by a live go-go band.
MHTV has assembled one of the best DMV hip-hop projects of the year and it's definitely worth a listen. Above The Streets Vol. II is hosted DJ Schemes, sponsored by Le' Feu vodka and Koolah Investments Inc., and is available now for download on www.DatPiff.com.
