Recorded while on tour in Sweden, “Frank Lee” sees Revere-based MC M-Dot repping our city with the best of intentions. With the articulated fury of modern contemporaries like El-P and Despot, his one-liners about stale fast food and a skeleton wearing jeans not only encourage kids to stay clean, but to make music themselves without commercialized support –- an independence he’s relished in his own career. “Frank Lee” makes excellent use of producer Pause’s looped muted horns and off-kilter hand claps, resulting in smooth-rolling tune. The verdict: These beats beg to be sung to the world, so turn it up, roll down your car windows, and let the crisp air kiss your face as you luxuriate on the fact that Boston’s rap scene is still on top.
