Humans are fragile. Careers are fragile. Reps are fragile. What you build in a lifetime you can ruin in a day. Cas Metah and Sintax the Terrific have lived some real life after years of making music as members of the mega crews Scribbling Idiots and Deepspace5, respectively. And, they’ve never been more acquainted with their own mortality than now. But, Mere Mortals doesn’t try and solve the world or themselves. Sometimes an album just follows the music it’s given. And, when you have Dj Sean P in the lab and on the tables that’s an easy lead to follow. From the accessible first single Mere Mortal to the sure-to-be new summertime fav, Alright, to the sober finale, Homecoming, Sean P carries the many sentiments. Lament and celebration, braggadocios and confessionary. Mere Mortals isn’t too heavy and isn’t too light. It’s just everything in between. Three artists just trying to justify this fragile human existence.

I have an album dropping this summer that I made with my good buddy Sintax.the.terrific (of Deepspace5) called Mere Mortals. DJ Sean P handled all the production, scratches, mixing and mastering. It will be released via Illect Recordings on July 2nd. Our first single “Mere Mortals” featuring Jordan Coleman is out now on all streaming platforms and it’s a banger y’all! Check it out here! And yes, the single is “Mere Mortal” (singular) but the album is “Mere Mortals” (plural) in case you thought there was a typo somewhere lol.
I met Lyriz in 2005 on my first of many trips out to Quincy, IL to visit MP Ancient (then known as MotionPlus). We’ve stayed in touch and collaborated many times over the years, including an EP called the Daily Delivery we did with Mouf Warren and Lyphe (aka R.U.S.H.). This time on 3P Vol. 10 with beats by Don-P (he’s produced for Raekwon, Jadakiss, etc.) we get busy once again like we usually do. D1 helped us out on 2 hooks and mixed everything. This is the last of the 3P series (maybe?) so snatch it for $3 right here!
Don’t tell Big Sto, but I forgot to update my website a couple months ago when this actually came out lol! There’s been a lot going on this way, but better late than never! My partner in rhyme MP Ancient (Scribbling Idiots/SomeBuddies) joins me this go round with beats by another SI family member, the one and only Theory Hazit! This 3P slaps! Features include Detroit’s Melanie Rutherford and Lyriz from Quincy, Illinois. Snag it for $3 here:
Bandcamp Friday’s have carried over into 2021, so I’ve decided to keep making 3P’s to drop each month in between finishing up my official projects. Volume 8 is produced by Dansonn from Los Angeles. Dansonn has worked with everyone from RZA to Jin, had placements everywhere from Google to Netflix, ESPN, etc. and his beats on this 3P bang! Features include Wonder Brown (of Scribbling Idiots) and D1. Pick it up for only $3 (or more!) at the link below, thanks for your support!
For 3P Volume 6 I’ve recruited Genesis Da God to share the rhyme duties, and Curtiss King did all the beats! Fans of my crew Field Specialists may recognize Genesis’ voice, he used to go by the moniker J. Spitz in earlier years. He also has released projects under the names Genesis Revelations and Hannibal, respectively (you can find those at fieldspecialists.bandcamp.com). Expect more from us as a duo next year as well!
Curtiss King is a producer/emcee/engineer/all around business savvy artist hailing from Southern California. Known for producing mulitiple projects for Murs as well as running a successful YouTube channel, you also may remember his name from Guest Room 2, he did the beat for “Head Strong” featuring Die-Rek.
