M-Dot – “Shine” ft. Method Man, Dominique Larue, Katy Gun

The Wu-Tang’s Method Man doesn’t do many features.  The only recent one I know of is Load Luxx’s single “Rite” which featured both Method Man and Redman. So I was curious to hear this single “Shine” from the Boston MC M-Dot also featuring Dominique Larue, with California producer Soulplusmind on the boards and New York vocalist Katy Gunn on the hook. The results add up as the track is a banger. Meth sets the tone making this official tissue, followed by Dominique Larue who spazzes lyrically and M-Dot bats clean up with a killer verse to wrap things up. Katy Gun nails the chorus, so what else is left? This is a dope record. And no need for a “radio edit” as not one of the MC’s on this have any profanity in their verse.

“Shine” is off of M-Dot’s two part debut album “Ego and the Enemy” (in stores sometime in 2015). What’s finished of the album has production by Hi-Tek, Marley Marl, M-Phazes, Marco Polo, and 7L so far.

PROFIT ft. CASSIDY – ON SIGHT

on sightHere’s a new song from Profit ft. Cassidy – On Sight. I could be wrong, but I think this is the first thing released with a Cassidy verse on it since the Cassidy vs Disaster battle. Does he still have it? I’ll let you all figure that out.

De La Soul F/ Chuck D “The People”

What’s up! We have a new song we want to share with you. It’s called “The People” and it features the legendary Chuck D from Public Enemy.

The idea for the song came from a couple of samples, and the track’s vibe is earnest and has a pressing tone to it. The lyrics are commentaries of our struggles and successes, our weaknesses and strengths… the experiences… and trials and tribulations we have faced as human beings, a race, and as individuals. Lyrically Chuck brings a sense of authority and urgency. The power in his voice demands your attention. With Chuck on the track this is a dream come true for us.

Originally “The People” was suppose to drop in June around the same time the Chuck D/Hot 97/Peter Rosenberg situation took place. We chose to hold off and not add fuel to any fires. Our next aim was for a Black Friday release. Coincidentally the Ferguson tragedy took place, and more recently the non-indictment verdict. Somehow this song was destined to be a part of something more than just dropping a joint. We hope it will lend itself to something positive in these difficult times.

We created some merchandise for this song that is for sale (The People T-Shirt & Sweatshirt). Proceeds from the merch will be donated to two organizations: All Star Code and I Love Ferguson.

All Star Code is an organization that helps under served youth make their way into the tech industry. We’ve been building, strategizing, and working with developers for the past year, and we understand the importance of education in tech. We have a music tech company that we’ll be launching soon called Daisy (daisycollective.com/). It’s important that we have more people from our community and our culture involved in this space. We just want to do our part in making that happen and ultimately help build the future of music.

I Love Ferguson is a organization that’s helping to rebuild the town of Ferguson, MO. We feel strong about helping and supporting the small businesses that have been affected in that area.
