New Artist Alert: Mahd

Few things in life are more depressing than sifting through hundreds of artist submissions and finding none worth giving a dook about. Experience has taught me that the shit is almost always guaranteed to be an exercise in futility. Luckily, I won’t be needing any Xanax today–the first and only music submission I checked was worth the effort. It only took a concise email titled “New Music Submissions From Mahd” to remind me that there’s still a small crop of talent out there somewhere.

I don’t know much about Mahd, but I know that he’s from Detroit, a city associated with a bevy of hip-hop greats. His sound isn’t domineering in its Detroitness. It’s more like a fusion of various regions. It wouldn’t surprise me to find that Mahd is a journeyman a la Jay Electronica. The two cuts below perfectly capture different sides of his sound: “Crazy” has a dirty south feel; “Competition,” the superior of the two, is laced over J. Cole’s “Too Deep for the Intro.” Listen up.





Rizoh is the most powerful man in all the lands. He lives in Houston where he earned a BS in Nerf Herding. He's the founder of The Rap Up, the former editor of, and is in the Grammy-awaiting band Pervertable Disciples.
