“I’m Godbody/ Not trying to be mobsters…”
Malcom and Martin are two weeks out from their ambitious debut, Life Doesn’t Frighten Me, on February 1. In case you missed their proper mixtape introduction back in November, the group is composed of DJ Revolution, and West Coast emcees Styliztik Jones and KB Imean. As the name implies, this collective is focused on making music to inspire future community leaders.
“Stand 4 Something” is a non-album track. The moderately paced guitar-funk elicits a laid-back, 70s vibe. Neither emcee are complex, lyrical monsters, but their points on the benefits of community action over organized crime fantasies/glorification still hit home.
Add this with their official first single, the Marco Polo-produced “Movement Music,” and it sounds like Malcolm and Martin are on their way to dropping a well-made, throwback mid 90’s album. The throwback feel is not just with the beats, but in the spirit of how they approach the music with a love of the art and culture.
Life Doesn’t Frighten Me will be available through Soulspazm Records.
