The Wu-Tang’s Method Man doesn’t do many features. The only recent one I know of is Load Luxx’s single “Rite” which featured both Method Man and Redman. So I was curious to hear this single “Shine” from the Boston MC M-Dot also featuring Dominique Larue, with California producer Soulplusmind on the boards and New York vocalist Katy Gunn on the hook. The results add up as the track is a banger. Meth sets the tone making this official tissue, followed by Dominique Larue who spazzes lyrically and M-Dot bats clean up with a killer verse to wrap things up. Katy Gun nails the chorus, so what else is left? This is a dope record. And no need for a “radio edit” as not one of the MC’s on this have any profanity in their verse.
“Shine” is off of M-Dot’s two part debut album “Ego and the Enemy” (in stores sometime in 2015). What’s finished of the album has production by Hi-Tek, Marley Marl, M-Phazes, Marco Polo, and 7L so far.
