New Music: Kane Mayfield – Champagne & Gyros (feat. Mista FAB and Greenspan)

Another joint from Kane Mayfield with assistance from B’more’s own Greenspan and the Bay Area’s Mista FAB. The beat for this one, provided by Mania’s in house production duo of Bealack and Headphones, has a smooth horn for the hook that gives the whole thing a real Camp Lo. All three MC’s smooth it out too. My favorite thing that Kane is doing with is releases is showing his versatility. Although this has a classic 90’s feel, it doesn’t sound outdated. Check it out below and leave a comment. You can download this track now from Mania’s Bandcamp page.

Another New Kane Mayfield Track! “Hydrants”

With no confirmed release date, Rhymes By Kane is slowly getting released through several (4 now?) solid tracks. What I like about the approach with each of these releases is that each one is giving you a different side of Kane. This one delves deeper into the introspective Kane who ponders black youth’s ongoing struggles over a smoothed out track. The whole idea of hydrants washing away the pain is a nice, poetic visual. Definitely looking forward to Rhymes By Kane. Peep “Hydrants” below and let me know what you think!

Kane Mayfield – Over Ya Head feat. Homeboy Sandman

“What you’re about hear is, a couple guys rappin’ their asses off…” That’s how Kane Mayfield starts this track using his best “radio guy” voice. And really that’s exactly what this track is. I had to listen to this 3 times straight when I first peeped it cause there are so many crazy lines. Kane is on his usual shit spitting lines that are part hilarious, part sincere, part threatening and he even breaks into a sort of early 90’s fast rap flow for a couple of bars.
