Respected Miami rapper Oscar Urbina releases his mixtape MP2 Darkness Tuesday. Rapzilla hosts a week-long Listening Session. The album can additionally be streamed on Urbina’s SoundCloud page and downloaded on Toneden.
MP2 Darkness is a follow up to Molly Pitcher released in July 2016. The mixtape series is influenced by the story of Mary Ludwig, a folklore heroine who brought soldiers pitchers of water to combat heat exhaustion during the American Revolution’s Battle of Monmouth. Oscar strives to use his music to make a similar impact on its listeners.
“The album is about being a transparent hero but doing it by expressing the dark ties in my life,” Urbina says.
Urbina has released two singles from the mixtape, “Teacher Chronicles” and “Carousel” featuring Mogli the Iceburg, and has been covered by HipHopDX, That’s Enuff, New Release Today, WSVN, Wade-O Radio, among other outlets.
