J Berd of the Maryland based Hip Hop collective Anonymous Conglomerate further explains what mastering one’s craft means, saying “to truly master something, you have to have been exposed to every aspect of the craft.” As an MC that means mastering “patterns, schemes, timing, inflection, relevance, adlibs, ect.”
Today Berd, along with his AC cohorts, the Heroes 4 Hire, releases “Craft Mastered” featuring One Ton, the 5th leak off their forthcoming project, Power Lunch. The track showcases not only J Berd’s mastery of MCing, but his frequent collaborator One Ton’s skill as well. Not to mention the behind the boards mastery of the Heroes 4 Hire.
