Metermaids have been known as one of the best party rockin hip-hop acts in NYC for years. Their rousing shows feature a ton of call and response, crowd interaction, and, by the end of each performance, general wildness filling wherever they’re playing. “8MM,” however, shows a completely different side of Swell and Sentence. It's a serious song and the imagery in the video matches the message perfectly. Metermaids aren’t getting preachy on ya, they’re just showing they have some social concern to go with their rowdy good times.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
