CHORDZ CORDERO

Chordz Cordero is a Jamaica Queens artist that has been perfecting his skills as an emcee, singer, producer, and musician since a child. He has collaborated with artists such as St. Joe Louis, Brokn.Englsh, Daniel Joseph, Swave Sevah, PH and GMS, to name a few. A few years ago, a chance encounter with PH led to some musical collaborations with MCMI.

 “I met PH at a Jean Grae concert at Highline Ballroom a few years back, when he was performing with his former group Brooklyn Academy. After a few chats we got together to do some tracks for both of our projects.“ – Chordz

PH introduced Chordz to GMS and Blitzkrieg, co-founders of MCMI Records.  Hearing great talent and potential, they decided to work with Chordz to release some music. Chordz’ first work on the indie label was a collaboration with GMS, who laid the musical foundations for the song FREEDOM: How We Get.

The song is an ode to personal spiritual freedom, with production by GMS and vocals by Cordero. Besides making the beat, GMS plays flute on the track, while Chordz takes ’em to church with his original heartfelt lyrics about struggle, perseverance and redemption. Released digitally on January 15th, 2012, just in time for freedom fighter Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, the song was very well received all over the world, getting airplay as far away as South Africa, where some producers put out an unofficial, unauthorized dance remix of the record. An official dance remake of the song is in the works and will appear on an upcoming project.

After Freedom, Chordz dropped a project with label mate PH (“This Is Not a Tyler Perry Movie“) and an EP with DC producer JUDAH (“Catalyst: [E]volution (EP)“), on DubMD Promotions. The two projects received a flood of positive feedback from the blogosphere and have expanded Chordz audience, doing well throughout Spain, Germany, Australia, Japan, the UK and the United States.

In 2015, Chordz dropped “The HIGHBRED LP“, a collaboration with fellow MC Sir Manley and producer Boonie Mayfield, on MCMI Records. He is available for collabs and choruses and will be putting out more music soon.

What more could you ask for? Tired of the same topics, sounds, and lack of creativity in the industry… they’ve come together to begin a movement of new Soul + Hip Hop.
