I played tons of music from Brooklyn artists – with a few non-Brooklyn artists mixed in there as well, while co-host LR Blitzkrieg gave us some news on Brooklyn topics of interest, such as Jay-Z adding 5 new dates to his Barclay Center Nets Arena concerts, since the first few sold out instantly at as much as $250 a ticket. We talked about Marv Won vs Math Hoffa and other upcoming PoisonPen.tv/URL battles and took requests off the air, but we mostly just hit you with music, music and more music. The artwork above, from the single “County of Kings” ft. ShaStimuli, Skyzoo, Ruste Juxx & LR Blitzkrieg, off PH’s album Know the Ledge. It is available as a tee shirt at MCMI Apparel and we will have some at our booth Saturday at the BKHHF.

FRIDAY June 8, 2012 & FRIDAY June 15, 2012
Ep 1 – “LYRICIST LOUNGE” & Ep 2 “T.R.O.Y”
Over here at MCMI, we have been cooking up things behind the scenes, getting ready to hit you with a lot of developments and music over the summer. Last week, we launched MCMI RADIO, our Online Hip Hop Talk Show. The show airs live on Fridays between 9 – 10pm, but as soon as the show is done it is archived and available for playback, embedding, downloading, etc. so it becomes a podcast after that.
On the show you will hear from the characters at MCMI (GMS, LR BLITZKRIEG, PH, PACKFM, MrMECC, etc), plus special guests each week, talking about music and events that are up on MCMIreport.com and any interesting Hip Hop related news that week. We usually disagree, argue, and fight about everything, so we present many sides to an argument, each week. You also get hit with some great music that you don’t hear on mainstream radio much, so tune in for that as well.
If you missed last weeks MCMI RADIO (Ep 1), you can listen to it here.
We talked about the LYRICIST LOUNGE 20 Year Reunion show we had all been to, a Jean Grae show, and we played some ShaStimuli, Punchline, Words, Masta Ace, Strickland, Fara Burns, Kendrik Lamar and DMP.
TONIGHT’S TOPIC: After the dust has settled, who was wrong, Lupe Fiasco for the T.R.O.Y beat, or Pete Rock for being too sensitive?
SPECIAL GUEST:Â POISON PEN ofÂ PoisonPenTV.
