The magic number : Mic Terror edition


Although Juke Them Hoes was my shit with bells on, the other Mic Terror cuts available online back in 2007/2008 were sadly lacking in that song's saucy rapping about swollen lips and often tended to be little more than freestyles over obvious instrumentals, so I consigned him to the same backwater of my brain as Dude 'n Nem, that one good Blu & Exile joint with the saxophone sample and a handful of other Rappers/songs I dug in 2007 that I didn't really listen to again thereafter until his Simpsons-homaging Can I Borrow A Feeling? mixtape with DJ RTC popped up on Steady Bloggin' last year and revealed he'd returned to his XXX-Rap roots with a "Teddy Pendergrass inspired" project about Da Bichez. S.B's Blastmaster and dude from Fake Shore Drive are still the only bloggaz I've ever seen praise this 'tape, so it's due another belated co-sign :


Mic Terror - Going
(From Can I Borrow A Feeling? mixtape; 2010)



Mic Terror - My Bitch Tonight
(From Can I Borrow A Feeling? mixtape; 2010)



Mic Terror - She Gon' Let Me
(From Can I Borrow A Feeling? mixtape; 2010)


I wanna say the syrupy aesthetic on this 'tape is what Drake's nauseating sex jams would resemble if he were a witty filthy mouthed black Rap dude from the city which gave the world I Gotta Big D*ck and Beat That Bitch With A Bat, as opposed to a milquetoast half-peckerwood child actor from the suburbs from Toronto who makes the act of screwing sound like an activity which exists solely as a prelude to sitting alone on the sofa crying into a tub of ice cream, but that'd be an even less tempting description than "sounds a bit like Joe Budden", right? Instead, I'll suggest that Mr. Terror's ear for melody, graphic sexual imagery and slightly unusual turns of phrase on Can I Borrow A Feeling? are loosely reminiscent of DJ Quik or Max B, and Heaven knows the sub-genre of Sex Rap deserves a better 2011 poster boy than Aubrey or Ronald Raphael Braunstein.

Amazing description of Drake's music, idk how things are in the U.K. but here in the U.S. his music is played every ten minutes on the radio and it is super depressing.
