Maryland-based rapper Awthentik is checking people on their “Proper Priorities” in this week’s Music Mix of the Week. The local emcee and producer released the “Proper Priorities” single last month after his collaboration with Ethan Spalding on this summer’s Beef and Broccoli and his solo album Foreclosure, which was released last fall.
Awthentik is working on his next solo project, but for the time being, he’s left us with this grit-filled conscious effort layered over a smooth chopped-up track. The frontman for FiF says we can expect another album from him by year’s end, but for now, see if he’s on the right track with Proper Priorities.
