MishkaNYC is probably my favorite streetwear brand out. My closet is seriously full of their t-shirts. And they’ve got a great track-record when it comes to releasing music. That Yung Lean nonsense aside.
Their newest release, ‘The #SWOUP Serengeti’, comes from Spark Master Tape. He’s a somewhat mysterious emcee with ultra-street lyrics and a pitch-shifted voice. Is he for real? Is it all a put on? You decide.
It reminds me of a cross between Serengeti & Hi-Fidel’s turn as ‘Friday Night’ and Noah23’s ‘Occult Trill’ series of mixtapes. It could be a mess. The outstanding production of Paper Platoon holds it all together though.
Who is Spark Master Tape? Who gives a fuck. The tape is free, and is sure to satisfy fans of the aforementioned Friday Night and Noah23, as well as the likes of Flatbush ZOMBiES, Flash Bang Grenada, and A$AP Mob, among others.
Shit’s dope. And it’ll no doubt “bang in the jeep”, if ya know what I’m sayin’? But by all means, check it out for yourself if you don’t believe me.
