What A LifeChicago’s MfnMelo Teams up with Saba for Flow-Heavy
Evan Dale // Nov 18, 2019
Chicago rapper and Pivot Gang team member, MfnMelo is, like much of his conglomerate, an underrated force of flow. His latest single, which folds in the always refreshing lyricism of friend and collaborator, Saba, is What A Life. Expectedly, it’s dynamic and inventive. Unexpectedly, it’s an understated and meditative delivery from a pair of rappers that have all the ability in the world to create some of the highest energy and anthemic bangers in hip-hop.
What A Life instead is calming and mellow, allowing the powerful but spoon-fed penmanship from each artist to effortlessly ride its acoustic beat into a sunset brimming with introspection and emotionality. Highlighted by a particularly emotive chorus by way of MfnMelo’s underrated vocals, What A Life is an interesting look into what he is capable of, what Pivot Gang continues to prove, and what makes Chicago one of the most inventive and conscious hip-hop meccas in the world.
