Tyler Durand, MAWLife rep/ the most recent addition to Sese Nightmare Klub has just dropped his highly anticipated mixtape, Remember That Was Us. I can’t stress enough how hard the MAWLife roster grinds. Between early morning/ late night studio sessions and countless hours putting in work with the camera, Durand and his camp held nothing back to insure that this latest release will be acknowledged by the hip hop heads across the board as one of the dopest projects of 2015.
Durand comes out of the gates hot with the intro track, “Dynamite.” The title is pretty self explanatory. Tyler lets off some machine gun flows on this one setting the pace for the rest of the project. The beat selection for RTWU is on point. Each track flows seamlessly into the next as TD runs us through “Faces” and Bless Up” where listeners are treated to more hot rhymes and infectious hooks. The tempo of the mixtape switches as Durand murks the trap heavy bangers “Not One,” “Stay Blessed” and “Tylernol.” Durrand ends the mixtape with a bang where my three favorite tracks “Purple Jesus,” “I Don’t Care” and “The Heist” are found- Side note… much love to Durrand for TCUS shout out at the end of “The Heist”.
Durand is the definition of a rapper’s rapper. The art speaks for itself. When you look at the amount of work and pure grind that Tyler and the MAWlife crew put into their craft, it’s hard not to feel inspired. Remember That Was Us is a statement. The MAWlife reputation has always been about the crew. Putting on for your city and staying true to your day ones. Remember That Was Us is only just the begging, or rather a continuation of hip hop at it’s finest. Check out Durands latest project, and as always, show love in the comment section below.
