thelonious martin

After recently dropping his Molotov album with Brooklyn rapper Saga, Thelonious Martin is back with another helping of production porn. In the latest episode of Mass Appeal‘s Rhythm Roulette series, the Chicago-via-New Jersey native hits up A1 Records on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and picks three records at random to test out his production chops. If you’ve heard any of his beats for guys like A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$ and Curren$y (dollar sign purely coincidental) over the last few years, you already know he’s good money.
