Cormega is a legendary 48 year old MC known for being an original member of The Firm. Since his departure from the group right after being signed to Aftermath Entertainment, he has gone onto release a handful of solo efforts including The Realness and Born & Raised. However, it’s been 4 years since the release of his Large Professor produced 5th album Mega Philosophy & now he’s finally returning alongside StreetRunner with his 1st EP.

The EP begins with “Say No More”, where Mega spits battle bars over a luscious beat. The next track “On Everything” talks about self esteem over a soulful beat while the song “Live Your Best Life” with Havoc pretty much speaks for itself over a vocal sample with some drums overpowering it. The penultimate track “Genuine Article” talks about his over a smooth piano-heavy instrumental & then the EP finishes with “Empty Promises”, which is a fitting sequel to the opener.

Overall, this was a pretty solid EP. Mega still has the passion & lyricism & the StreetRunner production was better than I had anticipated, but I was hoping that we got about 2 or 3 more tracks. That being said, I am looking forward to the album in 2019.

Score: 3.5/5
