Oakland, CA rapper MK Virgo has a seemingly endless catalog of anime-inspired music videos on YouTube. “Cold Heart,” a monotone focus-track with trippy trap instrumentals, was filmed in a real-life hotel with women in next-to-nothing and stacks of cash. It is no different in quality or sound from the other freestyles MK Virgo has recorded. In “Make Me Proud,” he opens with, “I wrote this shit on paper. I don’t ever do it.” That does not seem to be something to brag about, though the content, a love song, is well-thought-out. We hear the same themes, same flows in each song, making them predictable and dull. Excitement does come through in moments of acapella, with clear and genuine vocals.
