This year, Mekka Don was named an “mtvU Freshman” and won “mtvU Best Freshman Video” for his music video “Dirty” in March of this year. Additionally, Mekka Don has been featured on MTV, VH1.com, ESPN, Bossip and several other media outlets including the Law Blog “Above the Law” following a feature on him that appeared in the ABA Journal regarding him abandoning his law practice to grow his music career. Mekka’s decision also brought him to the attention of the hip hop magazine XXL.
“Paradise” is an EP that brings an entire range of sound and emotion in just 5 songs. Production on this project provides a solid music bed for the lyrical deadly delivery by Mekka. Instrumentation was carefully laid out very naturally and did not overwhelm the vocals. Mekka rode the tracks like a true veteran and meshes so well with the tracks that you might think his voice was perfectly manufactured by the engineer. However, I have spoken to this artist and nothing about this project is artificial in any way. He’s the real deal!
