Marco Polo – Newport Authority 2 (Mixtape Download)

Marco Polo


This new collection of bangers produced by Canadian Brooklyn transplant producer  Marco Polo is basically material that couldn’t be cleared for Port Authority 2: The Directors Cut. So its really an album more than a mixtape. We’ve already been playing some of these on MCMI RADIO, but here is the full mixtape download. The project features today’s generation of heat-makers alongside some of the legendary veterans that ushered in the Golden Era of Hip Hop, including Torae, Ruste Juxx, Lil Fame (of M.O.P), The Artifacts, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane and Das EFX, just to name a few.

And now …

What we’re gonna do is go back … back into time: GMS interview of Marco Polo outside Sputnik in Brooklyn. (2009)

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.

Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap (Trailer)

tech n ice

Back in the days when i was a teenager… myself and GMS (MCMI co-owners) met Kevin Fitzgerald aka DJ Organic in central park at a summer stage concert. He was traveling around filming what would later become the critically acclaimed Documentary “Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme” We introduced him to the MC’s we knew, took him to the events we threw and frequented, helped plug him in to the new york Hip Hop scene and even made cameos along with PackFM, Mr.Mecc, Substantial & PH – our fellow crew members from “The Plague” Flash Forward over a decade and a new documentary with the same great feel, love (and many of the same artist) directed by Ice-T is about to hit the big screen….

Synopsis:
Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performers’ insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard a cappellas straight from the mouths of the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.

Be sure to watch Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme in Full HERE

Shout out to my brother Keith “Wild Child” Middleton for the assist!

Big Daddy Kane – “Raw (1987 Demo)” (feat. Kool G. Rap)

Shout out to DJ Pizzo on HipHopSite for this. Spotted it over there and couldn’t resist. Not only is it crazy dope (I could of said “funky fresh”, I know) to hear vintage Kane and Kool G. Rap over a simple break beat with no other music, rhyming for 5 minutes straight no hooks, but it gives you a chance to listen with your peeps and debate – who killed it more? If this were a Grind Time Battle who would win? You be the judge.

Enjoy!
