The first project to arrive as he starts a new phase of his career as the CEO of his own 1.5 Da Label1.5 Way Or No Way reflects Mal’s evolution from up-and-coming to striver to a respected boss in the ATL scene. Mal’s rhymes are more polished and precise, showing off a newfound facility with melody to complement the tricky rhythms and bar-line manipulations that characterize his flows. Emulating his mentor Gucci Mane, Mal rhymes with a new perspective, as he’s determined to put his crew on his back and carry them out of Zone 6 into prominence. The upcoming project is home to 1.5 Way Or No Way,” the tape’s anthemic title track and mission statement, which came out last month.
