Magna Carda Continues to Define ATX Hip Hop

Magna Carda Continues to Define ATX Hip Hop

 Aptly described as 'Austin's answer to the Roots', Magna Carda refuses to back down from their lyrical conviction and inventive beats. MC/producer duo, Megz Kelli and Dougie Do, have a knack for Southern-styled ambient beats in which they drop effortless flows that are equally provocative as they are amusing.  Sprung from the campus of St. Edwards in 2012, the duo has continued to evolve and progress as they ascend to sharing the stage with the likes of the Pharcyde, Joey Badas$$, and Chali 2na.  Having recently released the album CirQlation in 2016, Magna Carda is riding some strong momentum from their live-wire performances and growing national recognition.  While Magna Carda is the Deli Austin's 'Best Emerging Soul/Hip-Hop act of 2016', it can't be denied that their ability to shine on the national stage will be evidenced in 2017.
