Mercston Celebrates Birthday with 'Milestone' Freestyle
Ever since Stormzy hit the charts with Wicked Skengman 4, the importance and significance of freestyles seems to have gone through the roof. Whilst they’ve always been a part of the scene, they have often tended to be throwaway tracks that artists put out to ensure that their social buzz remains strong. Well, like WSM4, this new one from Mercston is definitely not a throwaway.
‘Milestone Freestyle’ is a track that must be seen and heard. The one-take visuals, shot by BDOT, are slick and engaging, whilst the beat is an absolute monster. Add in Mercston’s barrage of intelligently creative bars and you have a piece of art that you can’t afford to miss. And all this whilst Mercston is still promoting his latest official single ‘All Now’ featuring Chip.
He put ‘Milestone Freestyle’ out to celebrate his 30th birthday and it has served to confirm that Mercston’s hunger to create music of the highest calibre still remains. Prospective MCs take note, because the levels are very high right now.
