MCMI Report: BILLY DANZE – 6 o’clock Briefing

[New Music] FREEDOM (How We Get) by GMS & CHORDZ CORDERO

Freedom (How We Get)
 

On Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday, MCMI Records presents FREEDOM (How We Get)“, a musical collaboration between GMS (Hydra/The Plague/MCMI) and Chordz Cordero (Intaphaze/MCMI).

According to GMS, “The song kinda came about by accident. We were in the lab to work on something else and I had this beat playing. Chordz said, ‘Wait, leave that on. Let me write to that.’”

Ten minutes later, they recorded it. Once Chordz dropped his vocals on the track, the two knew they had something powerful on their hands. GMS added speeches from several historical figures who have championed the cause of freedom, to enhance the feeling of inspiration generated by Chordz’ lyrics and harmonies.

“I chose people who have stood up for people’s rights and fought for an ideal of freedom,” explains GMS.

GMS Brooklyn picGMS is an emcee in the group Hydra and a larger collective known as The PLAGUE. He has appeared on projects on QN5 Music and on PH’s last 2 albums “Orange Moon Over Brooklyn” (Soulspasm/Rawkus) and “Know The Ledge” (MCMI), as well as put out 2 Plague mixtapes featuring the crew. He also DJ’s and plays several instruments. He has been making tracks on the low for years, but this is the first song he has released as a producer.

“A lot of people know me as an emcee / lyricist.” GMS tells us, “Most people don’t know I am also a musician.”

Chordz Cordero is a Jamaica Queens artist that has been perfecting his skills as an emcee, singer, producer, andChordz Cordero MCMI musician since 1995. He has collaborated with artists such as St. Joe Louis, Brokn.Englsh, Daniel Joseph, Swave Sevah, and PH, to name a few. You might also remember him from playing the trumpet and singing the intro to PH’s song King Latifah at the Album Release Show at Southpaw.

“I met PH at a Jean Grae concert at Highline Ballroom a few years back,” Chordz recalls, “when he was performing with his former group Brooklyn Academy. After a few chats we got together to do some tracks for both of our projects.“

PH introduced Chordz to GMS and LR Blitzkrieg, his partners at MCMI Records.

“GMS gave me some beats to rock to and I had ideas for some, but nothing hit me like “Freedom“.”, Chordz explains. “I needed a song that spoke to the people and not just one group or race. “Freedom” is for all mankind. We live in a crazy world and everyone screams daily to be “free” from something (self destruction, poverty, prison, debt, social stigma, etc.). This is for all of us!”

The song is dropping on Jan. 15th 2012 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s on his birthday, but celebrates all those who have fought for freedom, from Bobby Kennedy, to Gloria Steinem, to Malcom X, to others in the worldwide struggle, including the struggle within ourselves.

DJ’s, producers, MC’s and Spoken Word artists who want to create remixes of the song, get in touch with GMS [at] MCMIreport.com. There will be a video contest announced in the near future as well.

MC Obama Tweets the Nation #AskObama

Obama Twitter Town HallFor those who didn’t catch it on tv, here’s the official video of President Obama’s Twitter session with America, July 6th, 2011. Barack Hussein Obama /aka/ Barry /aka/ Mr. President, made history by being the first President of the United States ever to “live tweet“. His message?

Obama Tweet at Town Hall

in order to reduce the deficit,what costs would you cut and what investments would you keep – bo

I’m not going to get into a whole political debate about the content of the first Twitter Town Hall Meeting, Barack Obama’s effectiveness as a President, etc. I’ll leave that to other sites, but I do believe we should all stay informed, so please watch the show, to continue your own education as to what is going on in this country.

I do, however, want to bestow on the President, the title of “MC“. Since he started his first campaign, Barack Obama has always been a crowd motivator, a great orator, a “great debater”, to use the title of SkyZoo’s last release. With his speeches, he is known as one who “moves the crowd” .
