Method Man x M-Dot x Dominique Larue x Katy Gunn “Shine” (prod by Soulplusmind)
The first single off M-Dot’s long-awaited debut album “Ego and The Enemy” coming soon on Own Lane Music!
A few months back Boston rhyme spitter M-Dot dropped the first single off his debut album. Produced by Soulplusmind, the track has a rare feature from Method Man, and great contributions from Ohio native Dominique Larue and vocals from Katy Gunn. Now that the song has gone viral, we’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the theme of this song with an animated video by Serbian based director Slobodan Bokka Medarevic and the Street Hearted Videos team.
From M-Dot… “Over the course of the 4 minute vividly illustrated parable, “Shine” imaginatively depicts a group of young, ‘Independent’ minds fighting through the covert grip of their oppressors in order to once again illuminate society. The video uniquely showcases the constant conflict between good vs. evil, light vs. darkness. Most evident is the cautionary underlying that the ‘underground’ will not remain dormant forever… eventually WE will SHINE through!”
“Shine” is the second video in M-Dot / Own Lane Music’s “4th Quarter” onslaught. “Ego and The Enemy” (Disc 1: due out early 2016) will feature production by Hi-Tek, Marley Marl, Buckwild, M-Phazes, Marco Polo, !llmind, Da Beatminerz, 7L, Snowgoons and many more. Also, the sequel to “Shine” has already been recorded with M-Dot, Tical, producer Soulplusmind and a few SURPRISE guests all aboard for Part 2 (story-bridging visual in the works as well).
