Sydney-based hip hop artist, Merc Mason is excited to reveal his debut single ‘Pull Up, Hop Out’ - the lead track lifted from his forthcoming maiden EP ‘Lucid’ (due August 18) – produced by the rapper himself and mixed and mastered by Sebastian Morales (Mookhi, Blondebears).
‘Pull Up, Hop Out’ is the opening track of the record; an eerie and confronting, yet apt introduction showcasing Mason’s style and staple influences. Taking cues from the likes of trap artists Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz and A$AP Ferg, the enigmatic rapper blends an array of flows and cadences, combined with instrumentals inspired by late 2000’s southern rap.
Growing up surrounded by Sydney’s underworld, drug dealing could have very easily been the career path of Merc but his feelings and ambitions changed when a close friend was jailed for three years. Throughout his songs he speaks about the highs and the lows of the world and his change of heart towards it.
To coincide with the release of ‘Lucid’, Merc Mason will launch the record live at Rare Finds Sydney club night party held at OAF Gallery Bar on Friday September 29.
‘Pull Out, Hop Out’ is now available via Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and all good digital retailers.
