MEYHEM LAUREN & DARINGER – BLACK VLADIMIR

Meyhem Lauren teams up with Griselda producer Daringer for this masterpiece of a new album. On the mic, Meyhem Lauren is flawless. He does his thing with the rhymes and his flow is unique and perfect. His gangster street rhymes are the perfect presentation of opulence. He has a few assists from the likes of Action Bronson, Conway, Westside Gunn, Flee Lord, and more. Daringer does a fantastic job on the production. These are some great beats that not only sound like the Griselda sound, but also complement Meyhem Lauren nicely. All in all, this is a near perfect album that should be highly respected and widely circulated.

MEYHEM LAUREN & HARRY FRAUD – GLASS 2.0

Meyhem Lauren and Harry Fraud team up once again for another dope installment of the Glass series. This was definitely another dope excursion into the world of Meyhem Lauren. He drops more dope and luxurious rhymes for fans to feast on. His wordplay and rhyme schemes are usually pretty excellent. The production on here was above average overall. There were a lot more harder-hitting beats on here than the previous chapter. “Yucca” is definitely one of the highlights of this project. Meyhem Lauren does what is expected and it comes out fantastic yet again.

MEYHEM LAUREN & DJ MUGGS – MEMBERS ONLY EP

I originally thought that this was going to be a full length project, so when I saw it was only 4 tracks long, I was a bit let down. Everytime Meyhem Lauren and DJ Muggs get together, it is definitely magical. Those two just have a chemistry that works really well. Meyhem always delivers on lyrics just as he does here. DJ Muggs seems to elevate his game on the boards to provide the backdrop to Meyhem’s street and fashionable lyrics. The clear favorite on this project is “Wavy” which also has a great video to go along with it. The 3 other tracks on here are pretty decent as well. This is a quick, yet enjoyable listen. NY Hip hop fans rejoice because the Queens MC is back with more fly shit for your ear.

MEYHEM LAUREN – NICKEL PLATED WORDPLAY

This is a quick dope release from the forever fly Meyhem Lauren and producer Nickel Plated. These two teaming up seems to make perfect sense. On the production side, you get hard beats that sound like 90’s era greatness. Hard drums and clever samples abound throughout the album. You take Meyhem Lauren’s sophisticated and fly street rhymes and throw that over top of them, and you are in for a treat. There aren’t too many features but you do get a verse from the legendary Kool G Rap on here. Old heads will love it while young bucks will be able to witness greatness. Any fans of 90’s rap will definitely be feeling this one.

MEYHEM LAUREN & DJ MUGGS – FROZEN ANGELS

Another dope release from this rapper/producer duo. Their last project together was damn near classic so I had high expectations for this new one. While I don’t think they got as close to the quality of the last one, this joint is slamming the whole way through. Lycially, Meyhem does a great job spitting his audible artwork. He is a gangster artist and he is amazing at spitting that street life with a touch of the rich and exquisite life. You get what you expect from him on the mic. DJ Muggs does a good job at production on here. I had hoped for a bit more from him, but you definitely can’t be mad at his creation here. The highlight for me was probably “Psychedelic Relic” even though we had already heard this joint on the previous album. Honorable mentions have to go to the story of a police stop on “Northern Blvd” and the tale of keeping a chick’s brother in check on “Permanent Disfigurement.” Both of those songs are examples of his excellent story-telling abilities.

MEYHEM LAUREN & HARRY FRAUD – GLASS EP

Meyhem Lauren drops off a quick EP with the assist from the producer Harry Fraud. Although some of these tracks had previously appeared on his 2016 project “Precious Metals,” this was a dope record all around. Meyhem Lauren has the artistic, street bars to get the job done every time. He is just so dope with his word play. It is basically like functional art as he has spit previously. The beats are pretty good from Harry Fraud. Coming off of “Gems From The Equinox,” I was expecting something hard like that record, but this one sounds a bit more musical. Nothing really wrong with that as it is just a different style you will hear sonically on this record. Overall, this was a great project and we definitely look forward to hearing more from Meyhem Lauren in 2018 and beyond.

MEYHEM LAUREN & DJ MUGGS – GEMS FROM THE EQUINOX

This was a slamming release here and is a must-listen. Meyhem Lauren and DJ Muggs drop off a great project here with this. The lyrics are fantastic. Meyhem is really stepping his game up and hits us with some clever bars. There are also some great features from Action Bronson, Conway, Benny, and Roc Marciano here that help set the stage. The beats are slamming too. Muggs does a great job with creating some devious, slamming beats. They are very reminiscent to that classic New York sound that we all love and miss. I’d say the highlight of this project is probably the Action Bronson assisted “Shea Stadium.” This beat is just knocking and the rhymes lay over top of it perfectly. All in all, this is a very dope project that deserves a lot of respect. Cop it now and put it on repeat.

MEYHEM LAUREN – PRECIOUS METALS

I was expecting more from this release but overall I’m not gonna complain too much. Meyhem Lauren brings a decent album here with production from Harry Fraud. It’s always good to get a release from the Action Bronson crew. The rhymes are good. Meyhem shows us his signature Queens flow in the way that only he can. I think where this album suffers is probably the beats. I am not saying they are bad, they are just not as good as I was expecting to hear. Then again, this may just be a quick project to tide people over until the next studio album. If nothing else, the album is consistent and it shoots for par. I’d say give it a quick listen, enjoy, and keep it moving. Decent job from Meyhem Lauren.

MEYHEM LAUREN – PIATTO D’ORO

What a fantastic surprise! This mixtape is a sure fire banger. Meyhem Lauren has been down with Action Bronson for awhile and we have heard him pop up on songs here and there. A full project from Meyhem is something that everyone has definitely been waiting for. The beats are slamming on this mixtape from beginning to end. It was great to see production from Large Professor and DJ Muggs. They rhymes are fresh and rich. The features include Action Bronson and Roc Marciano. This is just a great mix of talent and a great outcome. The sound of the project reminds me of running around in a golden track suit in the mid 80s through New York City: gaudy, rich, and in-your-face. This is a must-hear for anyone that is an Action Bronson and Meyhem Lauren fan.
