My anticipation and excitement for Mint Condition's forthcoming release, 7..., is rising like the temperatures outside. Especially after hearing "Ease The Pain," an "official" leak from the project. Channeling a little Al Green, a little Rolling Stones, and with a whole lot of soul, this track is a funked up joyride commanding you to snap your fingers, stomp your feet, and sing along. Stokley Williams' signature vocals are all over this, and Mint sounds better than ever. I don't know if this is the next single or not, but it definitely needs to be. Mark April 5th on your calendars because that's when 7... hits the streets.
