Haleek Maul, who is from the island of Barbados, but was born in Brooklyn, just turned 16. His debut album, entitled Oxyconteen, out now for free on Merok Records, has a slew of references to drugs, sex, suicide, and murder. Haleek is managed by Milo Cordell, owner of Merok Records, who has put out albums by the likes of Active Child, Rainbow Arabia and Salem – Cordell is also a member of the band The Big Pink. Haleek is already getting a lot of love from listeners and non-listeners of rap, because the album seems to be an amalgamation of a lot of different genres. Oxyconteen, rife with the aforemention subjects, has the perfect amount of teenage angst, but there is something about Haleek that is more dimensional and creative that makes his debut album deserve a closer listen.
