An Ohio native and all around amazing artist, MADDI MADD is considered to be one of the best MCs in the Midwest region. His music has a bold and lyrical emphasis that tells a story with every song he writes. His recent release, “On Read” is a true testament to his skills and raw talent as a lyricist and musician. This single preludes his upcoming album, Success 2, a project over 15 tracks long each of which have their own unique feeling and story to be told.
Receiving his first record deal by the age of 16, MADDI MADD has been hard at work creating music for much of his life. Despite a few setbacks, he’s been able to work his way up and continues to do so. “I cannot remember not doing music. Like even songs that I wrote for other individuals when I wasn’t working on my personal projects. I wrote songs for individuals in the industry, but I’ve always done music. I’ve never seen myself as doing anything else” MADD is dedicated to his work. After several setbacks, he now lives by the idea that you can be in the streets or you can do music, and he’s been climbing the charts ever since.
MADD’s latest track “On Read” is a song for the modern era. The concept behind this completely relatable song is that the pursuit of romance has gone digital. “You know, we’ll see somebody pretty or nice on Instagram and send them a DM and because we’re technically strangers, they won’t respond, but they’ll look at it.” This song is a call to people to open up to this exciting new way of talking to and finding each other.
“On Read” is a sneak preview of the upcoming album Success 2. This is a particularly exciting track for MADD to release because of the story-like nature of his lyricism. Each track has a unique story and evokes a new emotion. This album is all encompassing and truly full of everything you need to get the full experience. “This is an album I want people to listen to 25 years from now. There are things in this album that are going on in the world today. My songs touch on a lot of different topics.” On top of telling his story, Success 2 was motivated by MADD’s goal of improving and diversifying his discography in a way that lets him truly express himself.
On top of gearing up for Success 2, MADD is preparing to release more tracks, such as “Stanley Kubrick” and “Forever”, and is featured in the upcoming film “Rhyme Slaya,” which is set to air on Tubi. This artist is well worth the listen and surely has much more to look forward to in his future.
