Whether we like or not, race relations have been pushed to the forefront in our post-Trump election America and the reflection looking back at us is nothing short of sad.

It is no wonder then that artists across the nation are taking to the studio to air out their personal feelings on the state of our nation with varying degrees of ire. In to that arena then steps 9th Ward native Merk the Lyrical Tantrum and Geto Boys’ Big Mike with their new visual, “Hard 2 Ignore.” - NANCY BYRON

"New Video Alert: Nola’s Merk The Lyrical Tantrum “I Do It 4 Da 9” ft. The Late Mr. Magic"

You can’t be a fan of New Orleans music without being familiar with Mr Magic; a man who left his mark for the 9th Ward on both No Limit and Koch in the early 2000’s. His passing, along with his wife’s in March of 2013 in a tragic car accident, left a giant hole in the Crescent City’s rap music scene but his influence is still being reflected by Nola artists to this day. With a major nod to this most cherished of forbears, Merk The Lyrical Tantrum, so named for his signature rasp and rapid-fire lyrical outbursts, releases the visual to his latest, “I Do It 4 Da 9” ft. Mr Magic himself.

A veritable travelogue of New Orleans’ 9th Ward, “I Do It 4 Da 9” incorporates everything that is best about this great city, from the bouncy ass Beat Doctor track to Merk’s speaker-splitting delivery. Nothing about this video doesn’t scream bounce and it doesn’t matter if you’re a big ol’ booty or the trunk of a candy-painted slab. This song is already a classic in the 9th Ward so if you’re not exhausted by the time this video is over, you are definitely watching it all wrong. - NANCY BYRON

Merk the Lyrical Tantrum was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana in the notorious "9th Ward", commonly referred to as Across the Canal, C.T.C., or "Cut Throat City", by Merk and his friends when referring to Home. Translating his personal experiences into a reality for his Fans, he was coined with the rap name "Merk the Lyrical Tantrum" because of his signature voice and rapid, lyrical rap style that is delivered in a raspy trademark voice that has made him recognizable. Life in the Cut Throat City was brutal and only the strong survived; furthermore, you fail to realize that you have other options. The only choice that you recognize in the Inner-City environment, "where only the strong survive", is that you have to figure out the best means of Survival by the rules of your World and the Streets. You pray that you don't fall Victim to your demise.
