June 2022 - Sardonic and Naz140 have two different approaches to hip-hop, yet their styles are incredibly complementary, showcasing their great energy and creative chemistry. Recently, these two budding rap talents set out to collaborate on a brand new EP named "Open Doors". This song is a big achievement for the two, and it is a great calling card to describe their work and vision. What makes "Open Doors" stand out is that the EP is very diverse. With each song, Sardonic and Naz140 took the opportunity to try new things and showcase their versatility. As a result, the sound of these tracks is catchy, but also very open-ended and creative, combining the punch and warmth that the audience would expect from the best hip-hop, with the daring mentality and forward-thinking attitude that is most commonly associated with the best alternative music out there. One of the songs, “Pain Away,” kicks off with a somber piano melody, showcasing Sardonic and Naz140’s penchant for more emotional and personal lyrics. The piano is sweet and melodic, while the 808s are big and impactful, creating a very compelling contrast.
“Run It Up” has something special to it. This song might remind the audience of modern-day legends such as XXXTENTACION or Lil Uzi Vert, but with a more personal and direct touch. “Open Doors” is one of the most distinctive tracks on this release, and it is not surprising to see that this actually happens to be the title track itself! The song has a really wonderful flow to it, which brings a bass-heavy, massive beat together with some nocturnal and awe-inspiring melodies in the background. Sardonic and Naz140 brought their best game on this one, so it is not surprising to hear that this is actually the title track of the EP! The song “Split Up” is just as dynamic and memorable, and it has some of the best melodies on the entire release, giving it an emotional vibe as well. Last, but not least, there is also room for “Glass,” an outro that feels like a perfect curtain closer to this EP overall

Flori Da Don briefly describes in third person how he just wants to share his gift with the world and “Stay Out The Mix”.
Ruff Endz, the hip-hop soul duo of David "Davinch" Chance and Dante "Chi" Jordan, formed in Baltimore in the mid-'90s. Named

Eric “Mac Pacino” Gordon and Keith “A.K.” Gordon, fraternal twin brothers hailing from East Palo Alto California in the San Francisco Bay Area formed the group Mac & A.K. The two honed their craft while living in Palo Alto, the then noted murder capital of the United States. Eric “Mac Pacino” first started in a group called Black Jack, which released their acclaimed album “Streets 2 Da Grave” on Ichiban Records, before forming Mac & A.K. with his brother. They eventually signed with Tommy Boy Records based in New York, which was handling acts such as Coolio, De La Soul, Naughty By Nature, and House of Pain at the time.
While on Tommy Boy Records, Mac & A.K. released their first EP Westbound: For Riders Only on their imprint Streetlife Records. Despite the record doing well, and them receiving a gold plaque for the song Way 2 Saucy featuring Mac Mall, also from the Bay Area, things did not workout at Tommy Boy, so the group asked to be let out of their contract.
They then launched E&K Music Group and released Money Rhymes as their first release, which featured heavyweights like E-40, Mac Mall, Above The Law, and local legends like Chunk and Neva Legal.
The second release was Hustle Music, which featured The Game, Young Noble from the Outlaws, Chunk, Sean T and other Bay Area Legends. The last album was “Legendary”, which was also well received. Unfortunately, Eric “Mac Pacino” Gordon died in 2013 and A.K. was left to fully run the record label and continue releasing projects on E & K Music Group.
The first release of many was the single “Gasoline”, which is on the forthcoming coming album “Only The Strong Survive”. The project will feature notable artists Planet Asia, King Cydal, JT The Bigga Figga, M-Dash and many more.
If the single “Gasoline” is to be remembered as an exercise in golden-age revivalism of groove-induced banging, the follow-up “Don’t Play With Me” ft. King Cydal and Money $ Mont AKA Mr Fetti prioritizes bringing that style into the here and now.
Fully loaded and lyrically on target, Mac & A.K. is in red-hot form throughout, firing shots like a high-powered artillery gunner. The track is jam-packed with incendiary moments, as the funky bass booming production forms the foundation for a trip back to the glory days of hardcore booth-spitting which is a rarity these days.
“Don’t Play With Me” possess a palpable sense of focus. Unlike so many modern hip-hop tracks, it wastes no time with unnecessary fluff. The song is concise and straight-to-the-point, with no signs of over-indulgence.
In short, it’s the kind of track Mac & A.K. is capable of making with effortless ease. The song’s punchy, head-banging sound should be a reference point for other artists trying to tap into its buoyant infectiousness.
Driven by Mac & A.K.’s fussy perfectionism and the desire to create a singular, mesmerizing listening experience, the end result is an undeniable success. Mac & A.K. , King Cydal and Money $ Mont AKA Mr Fetti shine bright on “Don’t Play With Me” with their vocal performances, and this is also where their unselfconscious approach pays the greatest dividends.
These men have been around the block, and it shows in their flow and smooth rhyme schemes. Across the record, they jumps from hushed to full-ahead and everything in between, rapping like they truly mean every word.
Mac & A.K. and his featured guests, King Cydal and Money $ Mont AKA Mr Fetti have constructed an effort that is a groove-driven rap tour de force. It is totally exhilarating. The sharp, shapeshifting deliveries and the explosive hair-trigger beat propel the track forward from start to finish.
In fact, one of the best characteristics of “Don’t Play With Me” is the production, giving a backdrop that manages to be both smooth and luxurious, yet slapping in the spirit of West Coast rap. Bros around the world are going to be getting loose to this song for months to come.
“Don’t Play With Me” represents one of Mac & A.K.’s most passionate performances, getting an exceptional lift from his features too. The understated swagger Mac & A.K., King Cydal and Money $ Mont AKA Mr Fetti exude on the track is uncanny, portraying a time when rap was all about technique and braggadocio.
It’s a track that makes you believe these artists can literally rap over anything. In the end, Mac & A.K. does what he does best on “Don’t Play With Me” ft. King Cydal and Money $ Mont AKA Mr Fetti – making a fully-fledged hard-hitting banger.

I’m an up and coming artist and native from Mobile Alabama, I’m all around entertainer. Music is my passion acting is a part of it.
I’ve open up for many mainstream artists; such as the Migos, Yo Gotti, Young Dro, Rich Homie Quan, and Doe B (R.I.P) I’m a very versatile artist that believes in balancing my craft. If it ain’t got substance with truth it ain’t me. A lot of my music deep because of what I been through and the people around me as well. I’m the voice of the voiceless, a product of my environment, a young cat with an old soul and a messenger of the streets. With my music you can agree or disagree but one thing for sure you gonna relate to me if you real. I come from poverty but I’ll leave in wealth cause my drive and hustle to succeed is different than the next man. When you see grandma washing yo clothes in a sink and hers in a tub that push to succeed hit a lil different. My goal is to be greater than my expectations while being in my own lane because I’m not in competition with no one but myself. I’m my biggest critic second to my family. Before I leave I wanna set a mark that’s almost impossible to conquer, but possible to achieve, because being Gamble The Great is having ya faith tested and being put in the worst situation and overcoming any and every obstacle put in front of you. Believing in ya self when everyone else is in doubt of your journey to achieve whatever they feel is impossible for you to do. Last but not least being the last one standing when everyone else fail to realize that you’re not average, nor just good, but greater than, and that’s me, “Gamble The Great”.
