Premiere: Queens emcee MRG refuses to fold on “Bet”

Premiere: MRG - "Bet"

“Down for whatever, you ain’t gotta second guess.”

Queens, New York native MRG stands apart from the pack with confident, melodic delivery on “Bet.” The new release carries a laid back vibe, but you can still feel the hunger and intensity boiling through his lyrics. Listeners can draw an array of emotions from the instrumental alone, but MRG’s gripping narrative is the dominant element of this song, without question. This is MRG’s first release since signing with Westvilla Music, and it certainly bodes well for his future.

With Dominican and Dutch-American roots, MRG draws from influences such as Kanye West, Nas, and Daddy Yankee to create an attention-grabbing, polished brand of hip-hop that can capture the attention of a diverse audience. Did I mention that he can rap in both English and Spanish? Look for MRG’s debut album, Live From The Hurst, to release via Westvilla Music in the fall. We’re happy to be premiering “Bet” today.

Additionally, check out the previously released “Feidin Santana,” a politically charged fireball of a song inspired by the brutal killing of Walter Scott by a South Charleston, South Carolina cop. The song is narrated from the viewpoint of Feidin Santana, the witness who filmed the murder.
