Today I was given a mix tape from a Southern raised artist. Birmingham native, Maine Million, is a most motivated individual, with an optimistic business plan and an awesome product. The B.O.R.N. Again label has released an 8 track mix tape with 6 of the best tracks I've heard from any other underground artist this year. The other two tracks on his mix tape release, entitled "Birmingham Heroine,"'are mini skits. Maine Million (Government: Jeremy Davis) hails from Birmingham, Alabama, but has been in Chicago on and off, and for the last five years he's been perfecting his lyrical craft.
Under my basic interrogation Maine Million maintains the same light hearted and focused vibe that is channelled through his vocal delivery on wax. As evident along with his creativity in his flow, e.g. Track#3, "Kill Switch", Maine Million spits: All black whips we call em "cotton pickers" -your girl mouth like a hot pickle. Maine Million boasts an original explicit nature, seasoning his flow with dramatic overtones in his rhythmic vocal approach.His percussive flow hypnotizes while introducing a revolutionary expression of rival geographic journalism,a struggle put with synthetic sounds and instruments. The mix tape follows a classic format for the industrial genre, developing appeal as it progresses through its 25 minute play time. With in this logistic time frame Maine Million gives listeners an audio trance with jazzed up sixteens followed by choruses or hooks that are as entertaining as the production.
Maine says that if he could sign with anyone, it would be No Limit Records. He already has performing venues booked for October so grabbing a copy of his mix tape in person will be a can’t miss opportunity. You can contact Maine Million through his web page
