MCMI Report: Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton – Transitions (Interview)

MCMI’s own Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton (STOMP/HYDRA/ThePLAGUE) gives us an exclusive interview on the set of his video shoot for his song “Feels Good”!

Keith MCMI LogoEven though he is a my brother from another mother and fellow recording artist on MCMI Records, it is hard to catch up with Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton these days!! When he is in New York, he is locked in the studio, creating, recording, mixing almost 24/7. Between back and forth trips to Japan to promote his album, video and photo shoots – the man stays busy! So at a recent video shoot for his song “Feels Good,” off of his upcoming album “TRANSITIONS“, I asked him some questions, to give the fans some info on his music, his life and his new project. Here is a snippet of it. Click “Read More” to go to the full interview.

Follow: GMS | Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton | MCMI #Transitions

GMS: Most people know you from STOMP, the musical, producing and rapping for HYDRA and The PLAGUE, but you are working on this incredible Spoken Word album now, that many people did not even know about. How did that come about?

Keith: I always kept my poetry on the low. It’s private. I had played with blending it with my original music for years with aspirations of completing an album but never went further than the thought. Jan 15th 2008 12:15pm was the car wreck that became the game changer. From my Hospital bed I vowed to complete my album and live my life to the fullest! Thank Goodness for the second chance.

GMS: This album is being simultaneously released in the US and overseas in Japan. You’ve been getting a lot of support from Japanese radio and been doing performances in Japan. How did you develop your Japanese audience?

Keith: A great friend of mine / manager in Japan, Ayumi Hoshikawa, has been instrumental in introducing me to radio stations, musicians, venues, festivals and just good people in general. She’s awesome.

GMS: Having been an MC and cast member of STOMP for many years, you are no stranger to the stage or the mic, but this time you are performing your poetry. Does it feel different? How does that compare with your past experiences?

Keith: It’s more frightening because in STOMP there are no words and it’s an ensemble. Now it’s just me sharing my truths. So I am literally exposed and leaving myself open. (more…)

EOW NYC: DAMA NILLZ + DJ GMS + OPEN MIC! (Feb 16th)

EOW Dama Nillz and GMS flyer

Just a quick reminder that I will be spinning Sunday night, Feb 16th, at End of the Weak (#EOW, #EOdub, etc), the longest running weekly Hip Hop Open Mic event in NYC. Being that it is Valentine’s Day Weekend, the ‘Dub has enlisted in me to provide a soundtrack for the LOVE of HIP HOP, as I did on my recently released The LOVE IS Mixtape.

Since it is a special occasion I will be giving out a LIMITED EDITION physical CD of the 80 minute mix, to the first 100 people who show up, so be on time, or better yet, be early! The event starts at 7pm and goes to midnight.

The featured artist for the night is DAMA NILZ, a dope MC who is having it as her Release Party for her album It’s All About You, available on iTunes.

Here is footage of her last performance when she tore it down at EOW NYC! Skip to 1:37 where the actual song starts.

If you’ve got bars get down early and sign up for the OPEN MIC, hosted by Jess Jamez, Majesty, and Ayy Pii, with DJ Callabrass. MC’s start lining up for the Open Mic at 7 and the list is usually filled by 7:30, but sometimes not, so still ask for it if you get there later. There is no extra charge for signing up for the open mic. It’s usually $10, but you can now get advance Tickets for $7, here.  MC’s who rock the open mic perform at least one song or do 2 verses over the DJ’s beat.
