The foaming-at-the-mouth, hopped-up OG Maco we were introduced to onÂ "U Guessed It" doesn't even begin to show up on "Get Down," a highlight from the ATL rapper's new EP, Breathe. In keeping with the track's old-school-style Chuck Inglish beat, OGG tempers his delivery to a world-wearied, inquisitive tone, and ends up with one of the best tracks of his career.
Touching on the "Black Lives Matter" movement that's referenced in the artwork, riffing on AndrÃ© 3000's "marijuana illegal, but cigarettes cool" from "Synthesizer," and delivering a Big Rube-esqueÂ spoken word sermon at the end of the track, Maco seems like he's aged years since his last track. In actuality, this ability's always been there for him, but he just decided to show us his more boisterous, ignorant side first. Don't write off Maco as a one hit wonder.
Muslims, Catholics, Protestants spend most of their time protestin'
Each other for minor details that slightly vary religions
They creatin' hate and watch it grow like legions
Why do we pledge allegiance, but as soon as they think we sneakin'
It's guilty 'til proven innocent
