After going through a fast few months of rebranding, The King’s Dead, a subsidiary of The Deans List is here to present us with their debut mixtape, Jerusalem.  Upon first listen I was a bit skeptical of the new venture, with a heavy focus on the artistic aspect of their craft, I wondered if the new music would be too abstract for some of the early adopter Dean’s List fans.  After listening through since Monday, I can now say that I only respect the art, but also recognize the progression of their music.  Sonny Aziz never ceases to amaze with the depth and knowledge behind his lyrics, sometimes even leaving me wondering what exactly he’s talking about.  Do you understand French? Mendoza Alexander have continued to adopt new sounds in their production.  Infuse fragments of rock, electro, and even dubstep into their Dean’s List work and you have Jerusalem.  It’s safe to say not one of their beats have even sounded similar.

Personal highlights thus far: “Sour Apple Rich Girls”, “Mighty California”, “Hennessy at Cookouts”, & “All Finished”.  The King may be dead, but this Boston trio is very much alive.
