Welcome to Hand Over Fist. It’s an album of trial and triumph, a street affidavit on the human condition. In a pageant of epic imagery, emcee Mike Mictlan confronts the central and confounding question—reconciling our great passions with our short lives.
With mainstream swagger and precision, Mictlan employs an understated poetry to convey his themes: fire, redemption, flight, and resistance. The production bears Lazerbeak’s signature; propulsive drums and bold guitar-driven melodies make every song a contagion. During a guest feature by P.O.S, Lazerbeak delivers on the anthemic tenor that made him an underground favorite. Together the duo produce an album of trial and triumph, and a street affidavit on the human condition.
