After months of anticipation, 19-year-old wunderkind Well$ finally drops his mixtape MTSYD: The Revenge of the African Booty Scratcher. The Charlotte, N.C. representative showcases his technical fluidity and ear for left-field beats in his debut mixtape. MTSYD also delves into the pains of being a Congolese-American.
The issues Well$ tackles include the struggle coming up, getting ridiculed for his heritage growing up, and the loss of his cousin. Its introspection doesn’t come in the way of listenability, however. The mixtape, which features production from DJ Dahi and Ryan Hemsworth, in addition to others, is available for a stream below.—Brian Josephs
