M1 Platoon - DMV Rock (Prod. 9th Wonder)

DMV Rock Cover Art
This track is something you can really rock to. I think you'll dig this. The DMV style is something that takes some of the plainness of the south and the skill of the north.. How could you not bump that?

About M1 Platoon:
A love jones for hip-hop is all it took to bring these "newtypes" together- Chopps, Vaughn Garcia, Scoopay, and Sean Diesel as M1 Platoon. Though they have been making their trademark as unorthodox, way out the box rappers in Washington, D.C. all throughout high school, it wasn't until their move to pursue higher learning in NC where things took a better turn with results. M1 moved down south to N.C. Central University where they met Grammy Award winning producer and former NCCU Hip Hop Initiative instructor, 9th Wonder. The platoon quickly took to "uncle 9th" as their mentor, mastering their craft in music production (Vaughn Garcia) and crisp lyricism. During their time in NC, M1 released their debut mixtape titled M1 Invasion, which was followed by two other releases from the We Not Them series, Part 1 & 2. M1 has also had the pleasure of opening up and sharing the stage with: Little Brother, 9th Wonder, Murs, Evidence (Dilated Peoples), Sean Price (Heltah Skeltah) Jean Grae, Chaundon, Skyzoo, Torae, Jozeemo, Median, L.E.G.A.C.Y. and Kooley High. Currently, M1 is currently wrapping up material for their two upcoming releases, Illest In America- which will consist all original content, and Rippin' They Sh*t- which will consist of freestyles over industry beats.
