U.G. (of Cella Dwellas) – The Mystic (1st Leak off Solo LP, Portals) (VIDEO)

U.G. (of Cella Dwellas) – The Mystic (1st Leak off Solo LP, Portals)

U.G. - The Mystic (1st Leak off Solo LP, Portals)

From U.G. (of Cella Dwellas fame), comes the first leak off the long awaited Portals. “The Mystic” comes with an eerie, but head-nodding beat from IDE. The flow is classic UG. Tales of magic, planet draining powers, thrones, and fractured bones from blows thrown, will all please longtime fans, with the powerful voice and sick delivery of a veteran – simply put, UG’s ill. Still! And like he says in the hook “sounds like nothin’ else you’ve ever heard”.

The Brooklyn spitter, no stranger to underground cyphers and hostile competition, pulls no punches and attacks with the aggression of a battle MC.

“Listen/ I bang my chest like a bongo/ Congo/ Push rocks like Rondo/ Arms throw/ Combos/ F*ck up your whole ensemble.”

U.G. - The Mystic (1st Leak off Solo LP, Portals)

After several delays, Portals, which includes guest features from the likes of Celph Titled, Mista Sinista, Life Long, Necro and more, is here, ready for Pre-order on iTunes. You get “The Mystic” immediately upon pre-order. The full album hits all major digital retailers and streaming outlets on October 21, via Creative Juices Music.

MCMI Report: Watch Substantial Perform in the 2017 Ford Fusion (Commercial)

MCMI Report: This just in! Mid Atlantic Ford Dealers got MCMI affiliated rapper Substantial into one of their new vehicles and he made magic! Okay, this is taking “spittin’ in the whip” to the next level. Et first I was like “Oh cool. The homie Substantial (member of The Plague, Fanomm, Bop Alloy & Ef@mm) did a FORD commercial. But when I watch it, it’s more like Ford did a Substantial commercial! It’s all about him, growin’ up in DC and Baltimore, his daughter and his career as an artist. And he does spit a verse, all while driving around in a Ford Fusion.

MCMI Report: Watch Substantial Perform in the 2017 Ford Fusion

Earlier this summer, Substantial’s song The Sub Way was chosen by UBER for their #UberSummerSeries campaignThey used the beat and hook to promote the second installment of the Uber Summer Concert Series, presented by Perrier and Hotel Indigo, but the video was of a rooftop concert featuring the artist Yuna (big up to her).

Now FORD is using The Sub Way in their commercial. The commercial and the full song are featured prominently on FordMusic.com. I’m thinking with TWO billion dollar companies wanting to use this song, it obviously strikes a chord with them and with the public.

This is a great look for Substantial who just released the Present [EP] with producer Marcus D, available on iTunes and Bandcamp [Explicit] & [Clean]. You can stream both on Spotify.

He also has a new shirt out, called the Eclipse #BackToLyrics T-shirt from Substantial & HiPNOTT Records, featuring artwork that includes lyrics from Nujabes‘ song ‘Eclipse‘ featuring Substantial from the 2005 album ‘Modal Soul‘. The digital artwork was designed by Substantial himself. Shirts availabe here. Modal Soul album here.

With so much going on, you might want to sign up for updates on Stan’s new Fanbridge Action Page, where you can ask him questions (and he actually answers them!), connect with him on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Soundcloud, Spotify and more.

Skull N Tones x Do You Mind

Skull N Tones is a DJ/production team, art and international dance movement, equally into Hip Hop and the EDM Dance music scene. You may have seen some of their beat videos on youtube, or the official music video for their track New World Order. This unofficial remix, Skull N Tones x Do You Mind, is based on the DJ Khaled song and is made with the Club DJ in mind.

The founders of Skull N Tones collective, Jarret & Bleu, began their career by making instrumentals for underground hip hop acts, such as Brooklyn Academy and Steven King.  Years later, the group transitioned into trap and gritty-style EDM when they partnered with Amsterdam-based clothing company, Nuff Said.  The team performs with masks using their iconic logo.  Their current mission is to create a platform where people can lose their identity and let their souls show by dancing their faces off.

MCMI REPORT: JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY comes to AFROPUNK BROOKLYN 2016!

MCMI REPORT: JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY comes to AFROPUNK BROOKLYN

MCMI REPORT: JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY comes to AFROPUNK BROOKLYN

Enter the JUGGERNAUT! Founded by frontman Qaasim Middleton (American Idol, Naked Brothers Band and HBO’s Music In Me), Juggernaut War Party is quite a collective, consisting of Qaasim, (lead vocals, guitar), his brother Khalil (vocals, MPC), lead guitarists Jonah Hudson, Emmet Sher and Joseph Deadwiley, drummer Andres Valbuena, keyboardists Jack Gruber and Francisco Haye, with Ethan Cohn and Paul Johnson on bass.

MCMI REPORT: JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY comes to AFROPUNK BROOKLYN

You may remember Qaasim from his awesome run on American Idol Season 14, when he performed with Chris Brown and Pitbull and was lavished with praise from J-Lo, Harry Connick Jr. & Keith Urban. Since his amazing run on Idol, where he finished in the Top 8,  Qaasim has been quietly developing his material, working on his debut album with his Hip Hop/Funk/Rock fusion band Qaasim & the Juggernaut War Party: Children of The Plague (“Juggernaut War Party” or “JWP” for short).

MCMI REPORT: JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY comes to AFROPUNK BROOKLYN

The Juggernaut War Party concept was birthed at AFROPUNK BATTLE OF THE BANDS BROOKLYN, on June 22nd, 2015, when Qaasim and his bandmates entered the contest to showcase their skills and original Rock/Rap/Funk fusion material. They did extremely well for a brand new group, making it to the very end, eliminated only in the Finals. It was debatable, but all of the groups rocked out that year, so the band chalked it up to an awesome debut experience.

Right after that, Qaasim did his last show on the American Idol Tour at the Beacon Theater August 5th, 2015, then become a free agent. Since then he has been in the studio with the band, recording and polishing their sound for their debut release. Juggernaut did their second show, October 10th, 2015, opening for Rakim and Corey Glover at the RESTORATION ROCKS MUSIC FESTIVAL.

MCMI REPORT: JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY comes to AFROPUNK BROOKLYN

This year, Qaasim & The Juggernaut War Party are back with a vengeance! They entered the AFROPUNK BROOKLYN BATTLE once again and performed such a striking, memorable set, that even though another band was eventually voted the winner, the judges gave JWP 2nd Place and decided that this year the top TWO bands were going to go through, to perform at Afropunk Brooklyn 2016! They couldn’t front on the War Party and wanted to bring their amazing sound (and fanbase) to the Afropunk festival. Juggernaut truly is the unstoppable force!

MCMI REPORT: JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY comes to AFROPUNK BROOKLYN

Come out to watch Qaasim & The Juggernaut War Party tear down the stage August 27th on the Green Stage, from 1:45 – 2:15pm at the AFROPUNK BROOKLYN FESTIVAL 2016, sharing the stage with artists such as Jonelle Monae, Cee-lo Green, TV on the Radio, George Clinton, Ice Cube, Flying Lotus, Saul Williams, Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, plus members of Bad Brains, Fishbone, and Living Colour, just to name a few! It is going to be lit!
