Namir Blade makes it plain for all to understand on “Mephisto.”
Multi-instrumentalist, producer, and rapper Namir Blade drops his new single “Mephisto” today. Highlighted by rays of warm gospel and soul, “Mephisto” is a rally song packed full of quotables. The new single is the second release from Namir’s highly-anticipated album Metropolis due out June 3rd on Mello Music Group.
“Mephisto” is the second release from Namir’s upcoming album, following Ride which premiered on The FADER. “Mephisto” is inspired by German folklore Mephistopheles. Namir Blade explains, “Mephisto serves as a debt collector for people who sell their souls to Lucifer. He doesn’t really relish in his work at all, claiming that he only appears to those who are already corrupted. The exchange of virtues in order to gain influence, wealth, or material things isn’t something foreign to the entertainment industry at all.”
With his new album Metropolis, Namir Blade reaches a defining moment in his career. In addition to showcasing his talent for rapping, the album is a testament to how far Namir has come as a beat maker and a producer. Metropolis is due out June 3rd on Mello Music Group. His new single “Mephisto” is out now.
