PREMIERE: FREƎNATION’s Maine The Saint Goes “Electric”

Some tracks are just a vibe, evoking imagery immediately through tone and atmosphere, and Maine The Saint’s “Electric” does just that. With a relaxed cadence, deep voice, and weary rhymes, Philly streets come to life; empty and lit by dull, salmon-colored street lights. Saint releases inner turmoil like exhaling smoke, rapping, “I ain’t trying to slow the pace, ease up off the breaks/ I was really in the zone, paying for mistakes/ mother fuck the snakes, rats, cowards and the clones.” Lights flit by outside the open car windows as engine-powered hooks vibrate with effects, and all is shrouded in a haze of bass, produced by Jake J. Fellow FREƎNATION member and collective founder Prop also jumps on the cut for an assist.

“I knew this record was special by the way it came together,” Saint tells MASS APPEAL. “I was sitting on a pack of beats that my longtime producer Jake Jesus sent me and I really had no thought of using it. I played the beat for Prop and we went straight to the studio and recorded it.”
