Cleveland rappers 730FM and PHNTM MNCE (Phantom Menace) hit my line with their latest track, “Peace.” I was grabbed by the boombap-heavy, emotional beat. Then, the duo added harsh and truthful bars over that boombap beat. The song is about the things they had to endure growing up. The early lives of 730 and MNCE weren’t peaches and cream. Instead, they were concrete and dreams. These are songs that we need, to keep the younguns off the streets but also keep the hip-hop bug alive for as long as possible. This one doesn’t glamourize the crazy ish they saw. Nope, not at all. In fact, it damns their past lives–even though they were lives that helped them become the men they are today. Check out the song and support dope music in all its forms.
