Magna Carda’s Golden-Era Rap Realization
The homegrown rhyme syndicate just went from "emerging" status to "fully realized"
Music Story  August 4, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...As the main cogs of Magna Carda, perhaps the best homegrown rhyme syndicate since the League of Extraordinary Gz (rediscover June 8, 2012, cover story "You Can't Bury Me"), the local duo's driven the group out of "emerging" status into "fully realized." Magna Carda's latest release, the bouncy and occasionally reflective Cirqlation (see "Texas Platters," July 15), ranks as a critical leap forward, while maintaining an old-guard nuance of collectives like the Native Tongues/Soulquarians, which once clustered Common, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Q-Tip. Aural wizardry from Dougie Do and Megz's poison-dart lyrics mesh at the album's eclectic high points, the MC Lyte/Audio Two-inflected "Ykwtii" and "Southern Ether," a strange brew of dive-bar blues rock and pre-Future proto-trap...."

The Weird City Hip-Hop Festival returns as a single-day rap off
Music Story  October 22, 2015, by Kahron Spearman
"...In lieu of a proper and stable reworking of a full-blown Weird City model as the city's next must-see festival, there are dozens of reasons to be excited about Saturday's Spider House Ballroom convergence, given the diversity locked into the lineup. Several acts on the bill, such as the juiced Magna Carda, are on the verge of breaking out, while other luminaries, like Crew54 and even Protextor, arrive with anticipated projects..."

Magna Carda
Music Review  August 10, 2017, by Kahron Spearman
"...Following last year's breakout LP Cirqlation, hip-hop troupe Magna Carda delivers a substantial holdover EP. Somewhere Between finds MC Megz Kelli (Megan Tillman) and producer Dougie Do (Chris Beale) continuing their ascent on new romantic depths ("The Infatuation," featuring Keeper) as the latter navigates in-song shuttling between live and traditional beat-driven environs ("Jazz 99" and "Lowkey," also featuring Keeper and vocalist Ava Raiin)..."

Magna Carda
Music Review  July 14, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...Greatness lies within the grasp of Austin outfit Magna Carda. 2014's Like It Is covered the Rootsian, full live band aspect of hip-hop, production by Dougie Do leaning toward sounds that wouldn't be completely unfamiliar to the jazzy, soulful legacy of the Native Tongues/Soulquarians collectives (Common, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Q-Tip)..."
