Magestik Legend Shares Detroit Mental

Magestik Legend shares his next single “DetroitMental”  from his All This Time album coming out Friday. He raps about being an independent artist from Detroit and not using big-name artists to bring attention to his music. But it is also a tribute to the city because since he relocated to California he thinks a great deal about his hometown. He says, 

With all the ups, downs, memories and new beginnings, sometimes I feel like my city and I are living the same life. Detroit is my city. I call it ‘my Detroit’ because my personal experiences in this beautiful city shape my perspective of it. I’ve always shied away from making a typical ‘Detroit song,’ partly because it’s become such a soulless trend where I’m from. But since I moved to California a couple years ago, I’ve really missed my city. Though the landscape seems to change every time I leave, it will always be my Detroit. My Detroit is constantly on my mind, especially when I’m away.”

Listen to “DetroitMental” and All This Time is available for pre-order
