Helpless Dreamer is the follow up to Mental Liberation, a new compilation executive produced by MMG, featuring production filled with moody piano, dramatic horns, ill bass lines, and ridiculous drums. The bulk of production is handled by MMG producers Oddisee & Apollo Brown, who provide perfect sonic backdrops for Finale, Kenn Starr, yU, and Diamond District. New MMG signees for 2011, Stik Figa, Tranqill, and Has-Lo also grace the mic. The sound created is an emotive, passionate, and dirty view from the streets of Detroit, the DMV, London, New York, and Philadelphia. Add Roc Marciano, Invincible, and Black Milk to the mix, and Helpless Dreamer commands respect. 2011 was a banner year for Mello Music Group.
