Queens, New york native Matthew Raymond Guzmán, better known as MRG, stands poised to continue carving out a special niche with the release of songs such as “K Lo K.” Guzmán is Dominican-American, and he effortlessly switches back and forth between English and Spanish over top of futuristic production by North London-based producer Wize. Hip-hop culture places incredible importance on true representation of regional influences, but MRG rises to his unique calling with ease.
I haven’t heard many rappers simultaneously tapping into bilingual emceeing and futuristic production of this caliber, but MRG continues to make it all feel incredibly natural. Don’t expect this guy to slow down any time soon. Look for MRG’s debut album, Live From The Hurst, to release in Fall 2017. We’re happy to premiere “K Lo K” today. Stream below, and be sure to follow MRG on Spotify.
