Dead To The World is the latest project from New York rapper Mperial. After linking up with Brooklyn hip-hop producer JoeJoshBeats on SoundCloud and Instagram, Mperial bought a bunch of beats to record for the project.

As an East Coast rapper in the purest sense, Mperial is influenced by the likes of New York greats like Biggie, Jay-Z, Nas, DMX, Fabolous and The LOX and it’s clear that their styles have steered the direction of his music.

At 11-tracks, Dead To The World is a concise but heavy project, bolstered by Mperial’s ability to bring his emotions and pain to the forefront of his music.

Artist Background: My dad, uncles, older brothers and cousins all listened to music so I became adept I remember hearing DMX at 9 or 10 years old.

I always liked music and rap it was in high school I started to develop slick word play and punchlines so that is when I’d rap with my boys and make songs. My ambition is from what I feel in my heart and soul and of course money.
