Mohs Mercury – “Stay Schemin'” (Freestyle)

Burban, Freestyle, Hip Hop, Rap, UK Asian

SCORE: N/A

Whilst we tend to post fully-realised singles/videos on SuperCritic, it’s occasionally nice to drop something from the ambitious fledgings. In this instance, it’s Mohs Mercury going over the “Stay Schemin'” and whilst we don’t score freestyles, we’re happy to dispense our opinion. What he’s clearly got going for him: lyrical ability in abundance; his flow (for the most part) is on point; and the vision to spot clever nuances. As with any new MC, however, Mohs must pay close attention to his delivery: the flat vocals don’t accentuate his clever punchlines, and as Nihal recently tweeted, you can be the best lyricist of all time but will never truly connect unless you’ve got the character and personality to go with it. Being an MC is a lifelong lesson in learning to lose the fear and not giving a fuck what people think of you, vocally more than anything. (Reviewed by Rahul)
