MP3: the MHz Legacy – “Spaceship” Ft. Danny Brown (Prod. By Harry Fraud)

MP3: the Mhz Legacy “Spaceship” Ft. Danny Brown (Prod. By Harry Fraud)

The Fader premiered this MHz Legacy song called “Spaceship” . I can say that if you were around in the late 90’s/early 2000’s  Columbus Hip Hop scene, listening to this verse by the late Camu Tao from “U R What U Eat”  that he used to kick outside of Bernies on High Street in Columbus all the time followed-up by a Danny Brown verse over a Harry Fraud beat, on a smart phone while sitting in the front seat of your shitty car in  2012  is a futuristic,and  ghostly experience.

The Mhz were a Columbus rap group consisting of RJD2, Cama Tao, Copywrite, Jakki, and Tage. Camu died of cancer in 2008.  The remaining Mhz  are putting out an album called the MHz Legacy which this song is on. The album drops October 30th on Man Bites Dog Records.
