Mac Tav unleashes his freshman Mixtape D.E.A (Detection of Emotional Apathy). He enlists DJ Echo and DJ ASAP for the 9 tack tape for real hip hop enthusiasts. TAV’s grimy flow and lyrics are inspired by his favorite rappers like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller as well as Chance The Rapper as stated in the first track off the tape titled ‘Right State of Mind.’
Tav’s Detection of Emotional Apathy stays consistent with a mix of trap beats, turn up anthems and classic instrumentals. He even drops some knowledge for his fans on the track ‘Flavism’ over Lil Wayne and Drake’s ‘She Will.’ He gets deep with right knowledge and his perspectives on the origin of man. He raps “We are one with the universe / that don’t mean trust everybody / Watch out for the Lucifer’s / The gold diggers / The scam artists and your fake best friends.”
With tight punch lines and meaningful lyrics we thought this project was an overall solid freshman mixtape by Mac Tav. He stayed true to himself and what he does as an artist, nothing was forced, which gave the listener an authentic listening experience.
In the words of MAC TAV “Don’t be afraid to change the game.” Being yourself and different from the crowd makes you a standout artist who wins every time. Listen and download the full mixtape below.
