It’s been a little over two years since Mallz released his last EP, ‘Penstroke of Genius’. Since then, the NC-emcee has been keeping himself busy touring and working on his latest album, ‘Hustler Of Culture’.
‘Hustler Of Culture’ is produced entirely by the Virginia-based duo, JMProductions (@NonDescript757 & @JMPro757) and contains 12 tracks, including the first single, ‘That’s How It Is’.
Each song on the album showcases the production team’s head-nod inspiring beats, which complements Mallz’ witty, thought provoking rhymes perfectly.
The album covers many topics and right from the first track, you can tell this won’t be your typical boom-bap album. With songs like introspective, ‘View From Above’, the story-telling, ‘Perspective’ and the lyrical exercise, ‘Emphatic’, Mallz shows his versatility throughout the entire project.
‘Hustler Of Culture’ was released on the indie label, Rawsole Records and is available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and Amazon.
Hailing from northeastern North Carolina, and currently residing in its capital of Raleigh, Mallz brings an honest approach to hip hop while being a champion for the average guy. Mallz was introduced to Hip Hop at a young age and has been perfecting his craft since the early 90s. His environment was not one of project hallways and street hustlers, rather it was one of dirt roads and tobacco fields.
As a member of the NC/Va collective, Alpha Male Society (AMSOC) and as a soloist, Mallz has an extensive body of work which includes three mixtapes, two solo albums and a combined 11 EPs (seven with AMSOC; four solo releases). He’s also been featured on numerous songs and shared the stage with with artists such as Rapper Big Pooh, Analogic, Nappy Roots and many more from over the world.
