The BAD SEED & LR BLITZKRIEG are “The 6IXERS” [EP] prod by NOTTZ

New EP The 6iXers by The Bad Seed & LR Blitzkrieg produced entirely by Grammy nominated hip hop producer Nottz

The BAD SEED & LR BLITZKRIEG are “The 6IXERS”.

Prod by NOTTZ, this collection of heatrocks is super Boom Bap, has the sonic qualities that got it played on DJ’s from Statik Selectah’s #SHOWOFFRADIO, to DJ Premier’s #LiveFromtheHeadquarters, to DJ Eclipse & DJ Riz‘ #RapIsOuttaControl even before it dropped, with the attitude of protesters turned rioters, who’ve had enough of this 2020 bullshit.

Got a problem you need solved? someone you need to make “disappear”? call The 6iXers!

The 6ixers has equal parts tough talk, humor, hardcore realism, social commentary and enough lyricism to satisfy any connoisseur of fine Hip Hop. The longtime friends and members of The Plague, are also united by their brotherhood with the late great underground king Robert PUMPKINHEAD “PH” Diaz, plus share the same birthday (February 6), which inspired the name, so you might say it was fate. The two have been on Plague tracks together in the past, but have wanted to do a project like this for years.

Speaking of Pumpkinhead, he is featured on the infectious “Got Your 6ix”, while the 6ixers are joined by Planet Asia on the neck-breaking track “Riot Music”. Cuts by Tone Spliff and DJ Eclipse are the icing on the cake.

FLOWPAGE

And the beats? … Oh yeah, they BANG!! Super Producer NOTTZ put his foot all the way in this one. I have my favorites, but honestly, you can rock this 8-track EP straight through (6 songs, 2 skits), without touching the skip button.

If you are familiar with Nottz work – “Home Sweet Home” (Lord Have Mercy/M.O.P), “Dangerous MC’s” (Notorious B.I.G/Busta Rhymes), “W.O.L.V.E.S.” (Krumbsnatcha/M.O.P.), “Say Dat Then” (Slaughterhouse), and more recently several tracks off of Busta Rhymes ELE 2, including “Slow Flow” (with Ol’ Dirty Bastard) and “Look Over Your Shoulder” (ft Kendrick Lamar), just to name a few – then you are going to call this “CLASSIC Nottz!” Discog: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nottz_production_discography)

I personally was introduced to Nottz when he and The Bad Seed first collaborated on the songs “Uhhnnh” and “For The Kids”. If you want to do your homework, look those classics up. Nottz’ track record since then is impressive, but it’s nice to see he still puts in work with independent artists. He even circled back around and hooked up with Bad Seed again a couple years ago for “No Way In Hell”.

Fast forward to 2020 and this project is a PROBLEM! Major label or Indie, a great song is a great song and The Bad Seed and LR Blitzkrieg (listen on SPOTIFY) have been putting out classic material on the independent scene for years. Both have dropped music with groups (Hydra, The Plague, OBS) and solo. Seed reps 6th Man Entertainment and Blitzkrieg is co-founder of the MCMI, the label, clothing brand and creators of this actual website!

Both also know how to play supporting roles, from touring with Mims and Miri Ben Ari, to performing and producing music in groups with PH, Jean Grae and others. So when these two friends of 20 years – who just happen to share the same birthday, get together over an album of Nottz beats? … What’d you expect would happen?

MCMI REPORT: NEMS – Love Love [Official Video]

MCMI REPORT: NEMS - Love Love [Official Video]

NEMS drops an official video for “Love Love” featuring Zandra Kaya aka Zee Funk; an unreleased record from the acclaimed “Gorilla Monsoon” album, which also features the underground favorite “Gahbage“, the slice of reality “Heavy Metal” and the heartfelt “Kings“.

This track is a parody/remake of Mase’s “Tell Me What You Want From Me” and proves the FYL general and battle rap heavyweight can also spit game to the ladies and put together a song which approaches commercial sensibilities (use of eye candy, humor, clever quote from Ghostface off “Cream”). But don’t be fooled by the title and Mos Def like crooning of “Love Love” in the outro, NEMS is a foul-mouthed thug and this song is not to be played when the kids are in the car!

If you like the more vulnerable side of NEMS, check out this other joint off his mixtape Skinny Nems, called Light One. NEMS also has an dope collab project with ILL BILL called GORILLA TWINS, available on every platform.

Poison Pen: SHOCKING First time to chiropractor to fix his knee!

Rapper PoisonPen visits the infamous chiropractor Dr. Beau Hightower, gets his neck and spine cracked and gets some Ortho therapy on his knee to eliminate his knee pain. He brought Immortal Technique and Southpaw with him (they were probably on tour in town) and Technique got some treatment too, which I will post soon. The three of them turned the docs office into a barbershop with conversation on many interesting topics, while Pen was on the table in pain, but on the way to recovery.

ROYCE 5’9 Leads Us Out of the Cave With Album “The ALLEGORY”

ROYCE 5’9 drops his much anticipated album ALLEGORY, a 22 track album, featuring the likes of T.I., CyHi the Prynce, Sy Ari da Kid, White Gold, DJ Premier, Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine, Benny the Butcher, G Perico and Vince Staples, which is available now on all streaming and downloadable platforms. You can find them all here.

Royce da 5’9 – America (Layers)

Also on the album, but not listed in the credits, is longtime friend and Bad meets Evil collaborator Eminem, who drops a 2 minute rant on a skit about how black music has been historically coopted by white artists over the years, but how in current times, black kids grow up listening to white artists and white kids grow up listening to black artists.

After the amazing work he put in with Slaughterhouse (still mad their last album never come out!) his ground breaking Book of Ryan album, his PRyhme collabo with DJ Premier and now this, I am ready to cop any project Royce drops or is on from now ’til infinity. With his steady 20+ year grind, creating good music, remaining lyrical in a dumbed down universe and still managing to maintain relevance 5’9 is definitely leading the youth out of the cave and into the sun. The question is, will they follow, or hate on anything that threatens their way of life?
