In 2018, Long Beach native, Mikey PX made a huge splash in the underground Hip-Hop scene behind his two projects It’s Depressing, Being A Shooter and Since You’re Here Now. With the latter having been released in August, the streets have been left dry, begging for another release from the rising star. Well, today is your lucky day, as Mikey resurfaces with his hectic new single, “Against the Odds”.
Produced by Crowned Stevo, the production for this record immediately stands out among its’ contemporaries. With a slew of paranoia-filled drum-kicks, creepy synths and more, the beat alone makes you feel like you’re running through a tantalizing maze with Freddy Kruger on your back, only for Mikey’s inspiring testimonials of coming back from the dead to give you that extra push to the finish line.
Speaking of Mikey, “Against the Odds” might be the most polished and confident that we’ve seen the IPMG rep up to this point. Conjugating his words just a bit more clearly and stumbling on some cadence patterns that I’m not sure have been discovered yet, Mikey effortlessly floats over this beat, rhyming about demons, salvation, hardship and more—he even gives a nod to his anxious fans who’ve been clamoring for more music with the clever line, “busy at the scale, I forgot about dropping.”
Press play on this brand new record below and keep a close eye on Mikey PX, who’s sure to follow this up sooner than later.
