The latest mixtape from international mixologist and DJ extraordinary Mick Boogie is Law and Order, the mixtape debut of Mekka Don, the 26-year-old lawyer-turned-rapper who’s also known for his reality series. ...
Explains the Don on Boogie’s blog: "Music is my calling. God spoke to me and I listened. Hip-hop needs a change. It needs to be revitalized with new and positive energy. It is such a powerful tool and mechanism to move politics, and if done the right way, it can be used to change millions of peoples' lives for the better."
On the site, Boogie’s mix partner Terry Urban testifies, “[Don] was definitely raised on 2pac. I think he’s got a lot of talent. He knows how to stay on the fence between hip-hop and radio rap. Good morals and a smart guy. He’s going to be dope.”
