Two Tiffanys celebrating what they love by giving it a stage and using their voices to spread the word.


maticulous – “Bet Your Life” (ft Masta Ace & Blu)

New York-based producer maticulous (@maticulous) is scheduled to release his self-titled, full-length album tomorrow. “Bet Your Life” is its most recent single, and it finds Masta Ace and Blu on a song together (for the first time). With hard-hitting, boom bap drums, and brief moments of a chopped, bluesy guitar and a jazzy, dancing piano, the two emcees spit confident verses about the quality of life in the rap game and the need for something more that forces people to risk it all to win big. It’s a short, 2-minute song, which has me wanting more (and repeatedly hitting that play button), but it’s real fresh as is, too. Cuts by DJ Skizz. Give it a listen now, and look out for that maticulous album.
