MK Virgo

New Music Critique: MK Virgo


Oakland, CA hip-hop artist MK Virgo is a thinker, an artist whose lyrics are not the same ‘ol same ‘ol rap themes. Often, his interior thoughts fill his flows and make them more interesting. “Alchemy” is a good example of this, and the fact that it is complemented by a swirling, hypnotic organ and catchy keyboard motif make it potentially compelling. “Silver and Gold” has a memorable, minimalist, trap-like hook. Some of us liked “Fly Away” best for its kinship to what’s happening at radio right now. But at the end of the day it’s clear that MK could benefit from being more dynamic at the mic and by enlisting a producer who can enrich the artist’s vision, add sonic drama where it’s needed most.
