Friday Fire Cypher: Axel Leon, Futuristic and Mala Reignz Spit Bars Over Beats From V Don

It’s been a minute since we had a Friday Fire Cypher but we’re back again with a vengeance bringing forth the talented Axel Leon and Mala Reignz to rap over beats provided by V Don.

Talking through producing tracks for the likes of A$AP Rocky, Bodega Bamz and Dave East, V Don opens up about deciding who he should work with. Watching Dave East ascend up the ranks this year he speaks on being around him from the beginning and how deserving he is of his new found fame.

Next up to the mic is Mala Reignz who is pushing the Bad Girls Rule movement. Starting her own independent label she talks about signing a deal with Chris Gotti’s company. Leaning every day about distribution and publishing she talks about what advice Gotti has given her. Before tearing the mic up she breaks down what a bad girl is in her book.

The homie Futuristic hops on the mic as well after breaking down his new project “As Seen On The Internet.” He talks about using internet influencers to push content and the struggle of growing up in a mixed household.

Last but not least is Axel Leon who was brought up to the show by one of our favorite lyricists, Fred The Godson. Born in Puerto Rico before coming to America, Leon talks about growing up close to Fred and rap battling for as long as 5 hours at a time. Currently on a mini tour with Mayhem Lauren he speaks on his new project “The Black Hole” before freestyling over V Don’s beats and then going acapella.
