MURS – Varsity Blues

MURS

I met up with MURS recently, at a show at Public Assembly, in Brooklyn. Me and the homie PH blessed him with some official MCMI  APPAREL shirts and we chatted for a few. He’s a cool guy, and he definitely takes his music seriously, plus, he has something to say. We were chillin’ that night, but we definitely will hook up with him for a full Interview in the near future.

Meanwhile, here is the title track/video of the new six song EP Varsity Blues 2, now available on iTunes. The video was directed by Darryl Richardson. Production by Aesop Rock. The original Varsity Blues came out in 2002. Besides Aesop, this one has production by Terrace Martin, Issue, Foundnation, Karl Berringer, and Droop-E.

Born Sinner
Here is the first leak taken from the forthcoming mixtape “Born Again Sinner” from the one of a kind, multifaceted Brooklyn emcee, I Am Many. Some of you might remember him from way back when he went by the name “Many Styles”. The new joint “Savage (Slow Burn)” is produced by Logik Proof.

Fabo: Look At Her (Killin’ Em pt.2) ft. Ne-Yo & Ryan Leslie

Fabolous mixtape cover

First single off Fabolous presents The Soul Tape. I can hear the haters now “Fab only spittin’ for the ladies, blah, blah, blah” but hey, he has cornered that lane (dare I say the new LL in terms of that?) Fab does his thing lyrically (as usual), the chorus is dope. Track is blue flame. A compliment to the pt. 1. It doesn’t top it by any means, pt. 1 is crazy, but it’s nice. And this is a free song off a mixtape. Not mad at all.

A Tribe Called Quest Documentary (teaser)

ATCQ

I don’t know who leaked this, or if they put it up as a teaser to get you to see the film, but I have to give credit to 2DopeBoyz for putting me on to it, so shouts to them. I know Q-Tip didn’t support the documentary for some reason, but I can’t help it. I am such a Quest fan, I have to see this. If there’s something wrong with it, I’d love to read about it, get Q-Tip’s perspective. But I have to watch the film. That much is a no-brainer.

Here’s a description of the project, straight off their official website atribecalledquest.com.

Beats, Rhymes & Life, the feature directorial debut of acclaimed actor Michael Rapaport, documents the inner workings and behind-the-scenes drama that follow the band even today and explores what’s next for a group many claim are the pioneers of alternative rap. Rapaport’s passion for his subjects allows them to open up to the camera, resulting in a remarkably honest, emotional portrait that does justice to this seminal band.”

* NOTE: The Trailer was taken down, but here is an emotional Phife explaining his reaction to seeing the film at Sundance. We will put up links to the Film or Trailer when they become available. – MCMI
