Merkules – The Bacon Bits (EP) [Review]

Vancouver, BC – Get ready to indulge in The Bacon Bits – the latest project released by SDK’s Merkules. Delivering each track with a bumpin’ beat and sizzling hot flow, this Vancouver favorite reminds us that although he may be known as a jokester, he’s nothing but serious when it comes to his music.


Beginning with “Beef Stew” Merkules calmly challenges his haters to “go ahead and try to knock [him] down”.  On the next track “Feet On the Ground”, he gives his listeners some insight on his life. Merk then switches gears and sheds light on an important issue in “Drowning”.  The track tells a tale about a youngin who commits suicide due to bullying. The self-harming side affects of bullying is becoming more and more prominent among teenagers and this really is the most powerful track on the album. Fast-forward a couple of songs and Merk spits about pill obsessions over a fun beat in “Sedatives”. Ending the album with “Pot to Piss In”, Merkules leaves his listeners thinking with his rhymes about the hard knocks of life.

The Bacon Bits EP is a wake-up call to not only Merks own haters, but to all of you dummies who bring nothing but negativity to the table. Merkules is doing his thing with or without your approval – ya’ll just “need to worry more about yourself”.
