Next Release: Mista Min!

Hot Corner Records proudly presents the next fresh artist: US rapper Mista Min, already been featured on Blockboy’s Heartbox EP, comes with his debut EP Nineteeneightyfive!

This EP is based on three songs of Mista Min’s former crew concept7 from Texas. They worked on a promising album when a studio fire destroyed nearly all of the music. Only a few songs could be salvaged. Mista Min combined these with a new song and so Nineteeneightyfive was born. Texan underground Hip Hop at Hot Corner: it’s the real shit! ;) Release Date: March 6 2015 // format: download
