New Music: Maticulous Feat. Masta Ace & Blu – “Bet Your Life”

Brooklyn resident and promising beatsmith Maticulous returns with the third release off of his forthcoming official debut, “The Maticulous LP.” Known for his soulful, carefully orchestrated soundscapes, Bet Your Life falls far from short of this expectation. The record finds veteran emcee Masta Ace alongside one of the west’s acclaimed voices Blu – you can’t go wrong there. Dj Skizz is on the venomous scratches, which is always refreshing to hear in 2015. In the past few years we’ve seen a fair amount of compilation records, which can sometimes seem easily replaceable and not leave a huge impact for hip-hop heads. But Maticulous’ passion and careful hand selection of emcees for this release may just bypass that theory. With a line-up consisting of M.O.P., Guilty Simpson, yU, Rah Digga, Rock (of Heltah Skeltah), Your Old Droog, and other notable artists. With that being said, the LP will be available on July 14th via Soulspazm Records. For  more insight from Maticulous regarding the release, check out his conversation with The Bee Shine.
