Mayday on Music Critics: "Don't Know If Anybody Cares What They Think Anymore"

If The Clash were from Miami and made a record in 2013, it might sound like ¡Mayday!'s new album, Believers.

With rock and Caribbean guitar riffs, simple and heavy basslines, snap-and-crack drums, multilayered lyrics, and catchy hooks, this slab is the Miami rap crew's latest masterpiece.

We spoke with MCs Bernz and Wrekonize about Believers, touring through the weed states, ¡Mayday!-label whiskey, why music critics don't matter, and how to survive the apocalypse.
