Mixtape Movements: @ArkHouseMusic Presents: @Mr_K_Green a.k.a Sosa – Made In America


Made In America Cover

Armed with gritty lyrics and top production is Brooklyn bred Producer/MC Sosa with his new project, “Made In America“. Released through the newly formed ArkHouse Music Group, this is described as a conceptual album boasting 8 tracks filled with dope lyrics described as “90s Boom Bap mixed with Coke Rap”, and awesome sampled production that reveals 90’s Hip Hop influences. If you’re a fan of that “First Coast” movement and none of that filler music, this is for you. Honestly, I’m waiting to hear Mobb Deep, Kool G Rap, RseenalFive Steez and even AZ jumping on some of these tracks. Check out the project below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
