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.

Brooklyn has a new home team – The Brooklyn Nets! They recently premiered their new logos & apparel, at a Models, on Flatbush Ave across the street from the stadium. CoachÂ Avery Johnson, General Manager Billy King, Bruce Ratner, Borough Pres Marty Markowitz and team member Brook Lopez (wow, his name is almost “Brooklyn”), spoke at the unveiling of the logo and several tee shirt and hat designs.
Not only did Jay-Z design the new logo, which has two versions, one inside a shield and one inside a circle, I’m sure he was instrumental (no pun intended) in the slogans “Hello Brooklyn” and “Brooklyn’s Finest”, which adorn some of the apparel and just happen to be titles of Jay-Z songs.
We at MCMI have our own “Brooklyn’s Finest” tee shirt, which we are about to reveal with our next installment of “Brooklyn’s Finest” mixtapes, for the summer. For now I leave you with a link to the first tape, by yours truly GMS & DJ DP ONE. It’s filled with classic Brooklyn bangers, old and new.
Vol. 2 coming soon!
