J Berd of the Maryland based Hip Hop collective Anonymous Conglomerate further explains what mastering one’s craft means, saying “to truly master something, you have to have been exposed to every aspect of the craft.” As an MC that means mastering “patterns, schemes, timing, inflection, relevance, adlibs, etc.”
Today Berd, along with his AC cohorts, Heroes 4 Hire, releases “Craft Mastered” featuring One Ton, the 5th leak off their forthcoming project, Power Lunch. The track showcases not only J Berd’s mastery of MCing, but his frequent collaborator One Ton’s skills as well. Not to mention the behind the boards mastery of the Heroes 4 Hire.
Before working together as a group, both the Heroes and J Berd have been recording and performing for years, garnering acclaim throughout the mid-Atlantic area. J Berdrecently toured along the east coast as part of the Go Figure tour with his Action Figure crew.
