A Queensbridge emcee Cormega, Mega Montana slings lyrical poetry filled with wisdom but before I comment on the new EP “Mega” let’s look back June 11, 2002, dropped his second studio album, The True Meaning. The True Meaning was the follow-up to Cormega’s 2001 debut, The Realness. These two critically acclaimed LPs independently produced under his label Legal Hustle pushed a combined 250,000 units. Cormega independently was one of the first successful pioneering independent labels, Legal Hustle Records, with one feature from Large Professor no mainstream exposure, True Meaning debuted at number 25 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart and number 95 on the Billboard 200 with the True Meaning. The album received outstanding reviews among hip-hop critics and won 2003’s “Independent Album of the Year” at the Source Awards. He released Hustler/Rapper, Legal Hustle compilation, The Testament(which was really his first album), Who Am I? CD and DVD, Born And Raised, and Mega Philosophy, which was entirely produced by frequent collaborator Large Professor. On July 17, 2017, he released a book in honor of the 15th anniversary of the release of the album The True Meaning.
On December 20, 2018, he announced the upcoming MEGA EP to be released on December 26, 2018. And now we have it a dope EP with the Green deep think color as noted by many Psychologist green stimulates thinking no doubt. The five-track EP is produced entirely by STREETRUNNER with some assistance from Tariq Azzouz. Mobb Deep’s Havoc makes the lone guest appearance. If you can picture tempered steel folded 200x to make a ninjas sword, the calm force of the EP is moving. My favorite track right now is “Genuine Article”. Digital and physical copies of Mega include instrumentals for all five songs. Fans can cop CD, cassette and vinyl versions of Cormega’s latest project via Red Line Music Distribution.
