PH – “County of Kings” ft. ShaStimuli, Skyzoo, Ruste Juxx, LR Blitzkrieg (Single)

COUNTY OF KINGS COVER
NEW MUSIC
PH feat. Sha Stimuli, Skyzoo, Ruste Juxx, & LR Blitzkrieg

“County of Kings” Produced by The Beatgees

Brooklyn MC PH (formerly Pumpkinhead), has teamed up with some of Brooklyn’s best MC’s for the new anthem County of Kings, off his soon to be released album KNOW The LEDGE, a precursor to the highly anticipated project, The Revenge Of Radames on MCMI Records.

PH says,

“Brooklyn needed a new anthem, something fresh, new and something that maintains and represents the gritty nature of my borough, so I enlisted some friends for this task in the form of Sha Stimuli, Skyzoo, Ruste Juxx, and label mate LR Blitzkrieg. Along with me, these 4 mc’s each add a jewel in the crown that is Brooklyn. The County of Kings”.

This song will be played in the same vein as Crooklyn Dodgers – a new generation of representatives for a new generation of music lovers, as PH spits bars like:

“We from where gangs is everywhere, fathers is never there / where they clap chrome the backbone of the eastern hemisphere / you shop on Rodeo Drive? We shop on Fulton Ave, you ride in limousines? We ride in dollar vans/ your favorite rappers alive? Our favorite rapper died/ If you an outcast you get cast out and cast aside/ If you put a nine year old on blast, he might blast a nine. The flyest borough. Too thorough, you can’t deny!”

The complete project “KNOW The LEDGE“, a street album of all new original music from PH, drops August 9th, 2011 on MCMI Records. The Clean, Explicit and Instrumental versions are packaged individually and together on iTunes, Amazon and most digital stores, internationally. If you just want the “main” version, you can head over to MCMI’s BandCamp page, where you are also able to Pre-Order the album.

Those who Pre-Order get the single County of Kings (Explicit) and Hollywood (Free Bonus Download!) right away and will be mailed the link to download the rest of the album on or before August 9th, the official release date.

[EXCLUSIVE!] PH – “HOLLYWOOD” Prod. by DJ Static (off “KNOW The LEDGE”)

The newest leak, hot off the presses, from Brooklyn’s own PH (formerly Pumpkinhead)

MCMI Records & MCMIreport.com present

“HOLLYWOOD” (prod. DJ STATIC)

Off PH’s “KNOW The LEDGE” project, a precursor to the highly anticipated EP, The Revenge Of Radames, on MCMI Records.

PH - HOLLYWOOD www.mcmireport.comThis song “Hollywood” is an exposure of an underlying trend that has secretly made it’s way through the Hip Hop industry.

According to PH, “Man I have seen artist straight up walk past fans that made them what they are without one shred of acknowledgment. It’s sad actually, the whole acting like your too busy to acknowledge a fan is played. Your not that important!

I have seen friends of mine [in the music business] act totally different when the machine is hot. I will never ignore a fan (friend) or treat those that I consider peers differently, because of my status in the game.

This is not a diss record. This is asking, “HEY!! Do you realize how you’re acting is what you used to make fun of and be repulsed by when you were struggling on the come up?”

This is not directed at any one person, but it is an eye opener. Take a look at yourself.  If you find this offensive, then I’m right. You are truly ‘Hollywood‘.”

 

The complete project “KNOW The LEDGE“, a street album of all new exclusive original music from PH, will drop later this summer, on MCMI Records.

Grind Time Now presents: PH vs Dirt

ph vs dirt
MCMI‘s own PH went up against up and coming battle MC, Dirt at Grindtime now‘s March Madness 2. After 3 rounds of pure fire by both MC’s it was clear that PH came out the victor. Be on the lookout for PH’s new mixtape “Know the ledge” the prequel to his new album “The revenge of Radames” out soon on MCMI Records.

PH Wins Magnum Live Large Project: Pronounced “NYC MVP” by Ludacris

PH and LUDACRIS

MCMI’s
own PH took first place in TROJAN and LUDACRIS‘ rap contest called “Magnum Live Large Project 2″, which had competitions in Detroit, San Francisco, Miami and NYC. The New York one was held at Highline Ballroom, on April 4th, 2011 and pitted 16 MCs against each other, not spittin’ battle raps like they do in GrindTime, but competing in three categories: a capella verse, freestyle off the dome and performance of an original song.


For those who don’t know, PH (formerly “Pumpkinhead”) is also a GrindTimeNow battler. PH was the GrindTime East Coast President for awhile, but passed the torch to current President Poison Pen, so that he could step in the ring a few more times. He also is a 2 time Braggin’ Rites title holder, 2 time EOW MC Challenge winner, EOW Challenge of Champions winner (he went against all the other champions and came out on top), came in 2nd in the infamous BLAZE Battle and has recently won battles in the GrindTIme and KOTD (King of the DOT) leagues, so he’s versatile and can compete in multiple formats.

Trojan’s “Magnum Live Large” Project is not an MC battle, but an “EMCEE COMPETITION”. What’s cool about it is you get to freestyle and also do one of your songs. Plus you spit accapela one round, so everyone definitely hears every word of your verse, with no beat to play a factor. Whether you’re nice off the top, can write a killer verse, or are really good at putting a song together, you get a chance to put your best foot - er, rhyme – forward. Besides MCing, there also were B-Boy , Graffiti and DJ elements and even an educational panel discussion. Check out the NYC Highlights video:

The  judges for the New York event were either MC’s or C.E.O’s of reputable Hip Hop companies, from East and West, North and South, so we had people who really knew what they were listening to. There was Opio from Souls of Mischief (Cali), Prince Po from Organized Konfusion (Queens), J-Live (Philly), Danny Castro from the Legendary Lyricist Lounge (Brooklyn), Mad Illz, who reps Florida and is one of the C.E.O.’s of GrindTime, and R.A. the Rugged Man (Long Island). 14 hungry MC’s and one singer, who jumped in the contest to get some light, performed  their hearts out in hopes of winning the money and going to Miami to perform with Ludacris. The event was hosted by local host Posion Pen (GrindTime, Stronghold), and tour hosts Othello and Rahman Jamaal.

LUDA on the mic

All PH’s rounds were strong, obviously, or he wouldn’t have been able to win, but the performance of his song “Oxygen” (video after the jump) really rocked the crowd. From the beat to the hook to the subject matter, the audience showed a lot of love. PH’s delivery and stage skills from years of touring the States and abroad, allowed him to tear down the stage effortlessly for the New York crowd.

Videos of PH’s song “Oxygen” that he performed live that night, plus his a capella round, both of which have not been previously released, after the jump!
