From the moment you lend your ears to Philadelphia native Maine The $aint, it becomes evident that he’s an emcee who doesn’t shy away from vulnerability. Influenced by the likes of Jay-Z and Nas, Maine has the rare ability to craft visually stimulating and sonically complete tracks.

The FREENATION affiliate is coming off the release of his project “Humble Beginnings,” and returns today with a new visual for his recently released single “DROPTOP.”

“The idea behind this track came from my desire to see the fruit of my labor,” he explains. “I know a lot of artists that work for years with nothing to show for their sacrifices. I wanted to create something that voices that frustration.”
