It is with much excitement that we have been given the pleasure to premiere one of the hottest new tracks coming out of Baltimore, MD this year! As the new year continues to grow and become greater and greater; success will be the key when achieving those goals we set out to accomplish this year. What better way to do that than to enjoy the journey while two-stepping all the way to the finish line. This year,Success by Ernest Third & Mighty Mark is the track you’ll want to add to your playlist as you achieve and conquer your goals in 2017.
Immediately, it has that fun party vibe that one might feel when hearing the dope Baltimore classics we’ve all come to enjoy like, Hands Up Thumbs Down By Blaqstarr, Bankroll By Tate Kobang, and even Bring In The Katz By KW Griff feat. Porkchop. This track gives you that vibe immediately as you enjoy the heavy bassline, rhymic hi-hats, and hood kicks as if you’re chilling on Greenmount Ave, outside of Light Carry Out eating a banging ass chicken box on a sunny day in the city.
When Third was asked about where he was going with the track, he states, “When I was writing the lyrics to “Success” I was thinking about bringing the Baltimore culture to life by using words. Trying to paint that picture, of the struggle, passion and fun of this city.” He then went on to say, “Showing that the success I’m talking about can be in any form, [as in] whatever makes you happy.” That’s what really putting your city on your back in a positive way sounds like.
We also caught up with Mighty Mark to understand what he was trying to accomplish with the record. “When I was making the record, I wanted to capture the classic feeling on Baltimore classic hits such as Wayne Jones by Tim Trees and How Does It Feel by Paula Campbell’s; both tracks produced by Rod Lee. It was definitely good to hear he was trying to keep it true to the city. He also stated, “Those classic Baltimore hip-hop records that had that Bmore Club influence but you can 2 step too but I wanted to do it for the new generation.”
Overall, I can definitely say I’m looking forward to what’s in the future for both Third and Mark as this track is just ill. Hopefully, they are sitting on a few other bangers and will release them soon. Either way, I’m definitely paying attention to both parties and will definitely look forward to the music video.
Definitely make sure you go download Success, fromiTunes and listen to it on SoundCloud. You will also want to mark your calendar’s for January 28 2017 as Mighty Mark will be opening his new studio, Gold Room Music & Media Studio, and premiering the new music video for Success with Ernest Third. Shoutout to Hello Rello for the photos as well for this piece. As always champs, keep winning and spread love!
