One of the most dynamic & prolific poets, musicians, film directors, writers to emerge from Queens, M-rock Holmes is very similar to No Other. Whether it be his journalism, music or documentary films, his work always reflects the uncertain Times we live in. Not an artist driven by being Popular but an artist driven by freedom of speech. The very thing that got 'Male ego' shelved from it's mother record company; originally slated for release in December of 2003. Fastforward 2006, the CD is available in it's original demo form without the big label budget, polished recordings and promotion. Still, the mood of the CD remains. 'Male Ego' appears to be upbeat on the surface but is really a dark album at the core but not pessimistic. Covering topics like abusive relationships, politics, self esteem, love, premiscuity, and masturbation. Dabbling in musical styles from organic hip-hop, drum n bass, rock, reggae, neo soul to R&B. A CD of the Times.
