With co-signs from Arrested Development MC Speech and Digable Planets luminary Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler, Twan Mack is living the dream. After dropping off “Marvelous” in April, Twan is back with a new video for “Born 4 This,” something he calls “Adult Contemporary Hip Hop.”
Described as an “introspective, self actualization of a middle aged MC/producer,” the track once again showcases his staunch dedication to the genre and delivers a timely message given the current climate in the United States.
Twan tells HipHopDX, “With each release, I continue serving notice that adult contemporary Hip Hop is a viable genre to be reckoned with. I prove 16 bars, a dope chorus and magnetic track is more that adequate to get my point across.
“When I wrote and produced ‘Born 4 This,’ I sought to drop jewels without being preachy. There were actually a few other videos I planned to drop, but my conscience told me this needed to come out instead. I kept it short and to the point, but made sure I adequately got things off my chest. The visual successfully reiterates my thoughts and the current state of the world. I’m proud of my latest piece of art.”
