Mello Music Group har de senaste åren vuxit sig starka med kvalitativa releaser av album, EP:s och singlar på en kommersialiserad hiphopscen där lyssnare skriker efter guide-assistans i en digital flod av musik. Nu släpper bolaget ännu en ny samlingsskiva med artister kopplade till bolaget med titeln “Persona”.


Medverkande på samlingsskivan är; Oddisee, Apollo Brown, L’Orange, Open Mike Eagle, yU, Red Pill, Quelle Chris, Rapper Big Pooh, Nottz, Ras Kass, Tall Black Guy, Phonte, Kool Keith, Exile, I Ced, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), Bilal Salaam, Blockhead, Masta Ace och Oh No.



“If the soul of hip-hop belongs to the culture, the skeleton belongs to the independent label. From Sugar Hill to Def Jam, Tommy Boy to Rawkus, Fondle Em to Def Jux, the genre’s best music has been birthed by imprints that brazenly defy the status quo, those who champion fearless artists and always prize quality over commerce.

For the last eight years, Mello Music Group has lived by that ethos. If you’re reading these words, you’re inevitably well aware of its ascendance and growing legacy. But more importantly, you know the artists—those singular voices channeling the spirits of the past and spitting premonitions of the future. Boom-bap at its best: evolving and expanding the art form, capturing stories of the struggle, upholding the tradition, and keeping the crooked honest.”
