Here is another one from MAHD, “Detroit’s Savior”, video directed by Xavier Owens. He drops a subliminal to anyone claiming “King” of anywhere (take it how you want) and name drops some of Detroits finest (Elzhi, Royce, Guilty, Em), as well 50 & Nicki, but the flow is heavy and delivery is strong, so I’m not mad at that.
“This is assault with a deadly weapon, Detroit I’m reppin'”.
Not looking for a hit record or commercial radio play on this one, Mahd is just being an MC, proving himself, which is refreshing.

I haven’t heard Catch Lungs before, but having two dope MC’s like eLZhi & Guilty Simpson on your song certainly did the trick. You have my attention. This breakbeat inspired track will make your head nod. eLZhi sets it off riding the beat fluidly with a freestyle flow. Guilty did “body the track” and “get busy”.Â Catch Lungs, fromÂ DENVER,Â Colorado, has a dope flow on this. His voice and flow are a little reminiscent of The Pharcyde. According to his MySpace page
Catch Lungs rookie debut album entitled “Food for the Famished” dropped in late 2008.
The 10-track offeringâ€”which finds the Detroit lyricist paying homage to Nasâ€™s classic debute LP, Illmaticâ€”was produced entirely by Will Sessions. Fellow D-Town MC Royce da 5â€™9â€ and Illmatic beatmaker Pete Rock also make appearances.
Fans can pre-order limited edition physical copies of the disc and other merchandise at elzhi.com. now. â€”XXL Staff
