Miz MAF – “Act Right”

In the clip for the Philly MC’s latest banger, he drops words of wisdom for the younger generation to abide by, and he also provides a visual that was inspired by one of Ice Cube’s most iconic music videos.

About a month and a half after unveiling the video for “That White” featuring fellow Philadelphia rapper Freeway, Miz MAF returns with his latest banger, “Act Right.” Throughout the hypnotic track, produced by Mello Dee Beats, Double M uses his energetic pinpoint flow to masterfully emphasize the message of coming correct in the streets.

The MC accomplishes that with sharp, direct, and fairly-repetitive lines that’ll stay on the brain for days, like with the rhyme, “When you out there doin’ your thing, you better make sure you’re true to the game / ‘Cause when you’re out there fuckin’ the game up, the game gonna fuck up your name.”

As a product, and veteran, of the streets, Miz MAF feels its his responsibility to pass along these gems of knowledge.

With a classically familiar mix of rasp and guttural delivery over an EDM-esque beat, “Loaded” is a new sound for a Philly rapper who originally hails from the birthplace of Hip-Hop, The Bronx.
