Trading bars and livening up each others’ rhymes with absurdly catchy ad-libs, Mal & Quill have an almost telepathic chemistry. Quietly stalking the subsonic trap instrumental like cheetahs hunting a gazelle, Mal & Quill feast on the beat in “Beat Monster,” their latest single.
Produced by Marc Beatmonster, who gives the track its name, “Beat Monster” finds the two Zone 6 rising stars flexing their flow arsenals, switching from triplets to halting cadences to tumbling, over-the-bar-line flows, all accented with hypnotic ad-libs. Featuring a charismatic, auto-tuned appearance from Q Money, “Beat Monster” is the latest single from Blessed Lil Bastards 3, Mal & Quill’s upcoming project.
“Beat Monster” follows “Dolce Gabbana,” the duo’s collaboration with Hoodrich Pablo Juan, and the lavish videos for “Laundry” and the Richie Souf-produced “Ain’t The Same.” Blessed Lil Bastards 3 is a testament to the Zone 6 group’s ride-or-die bond, as they exhibit a chemistry unseen in their city since the early days of Migos. Blessed Lil Bastards 3 arrives this fall via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
