Macky’s Back in Town 

We don't know if it's a conscious thing, but Murfreesboro rapper Mac Tha Knife--a.k.a. Mickey Blades--likes to mention that he was born in 1988. Besides making us feel, well, old, this makes us think that it's not some sorta cosmic coincidence that he was born the same year that Marley Marl released "The Symphony", a.k.a. "The Greatest Rap Record Ever Put to Wax." Mac shows a very natural grasp on the fundamentals of Golden Age rap styles from "fast rapping" to Masta Ace's off beat-on beat style on his 2007 mixtape The Great American Paper Chase and his upcoming EP The 8-Track is on a fast track for our year-end top ten list
