Mandala Vol 1 & 2 Hip Hop Compilations From Mello Music Group
Speaking of Mello Music Group Mandala, Big Noise is an avid supporter of anything Mello Music Group related. So you know we’ve got to show love when the underrated independent label provides us with not one, but two dope unbelievable compilations. MMG continues to be a significant contributor to independent music scene, an important player. Here’s to hoping the Mandala Series doesn’t end after just two volumes!
Both of these amazing compilations clock in at 36 tracks, songs vary between instrumentals, posse cuts, artist collaborations and individual performances. Oddisee has two tracks where he holds down the boards and the rhymes. The artists on these projects continue to contribute to hip-hop music and culture through ongoing releases and music you can find on BNR.
Being a label compilation, all of MMG’s signees get to shine on Polysonic Flows and Today’s Mathematics, whether it be emceeing, producing, or both. Exclusively featured artists include yU of Oddisee’s Diamond District, Has-Lo, Quelle Chris, Georgia Anne Muldrow, L’orange, Dudley Perkins, Denmark Vessey, Audible Doctor, Fredro Starr, Rapper Big Pooh, Stik Figa (KC!) Verbal Kent, Gensu Dean, Murs, Apollo Brown, 14KT, Blacastan, and many more.
