HighBred (Chordz & Manley) – THE RIDE feat. Zo’ Kimoni (Official Video)

HighBred (Chordz & Manley) – THE RIDE feat. Zo’ Kimoni (Official Video)

Full Disclaimer: I am one of the Executive Producers of this album, so my review is not objective. On the other hand, this album was created by The HighBred first and then brought to MCMI Records and when my partners and I heard it we immediately wanted to co-pilot, release this on our label, jointly with Intaphaze Records and Man@Work Productions. Why? Because its good music and good MCing. Pretty simple formula at MCMI, music is dope + the artist can “move the crowd”.

HighBred (Chordz & Manley) - THE RIDE feat. Zo' Kimoni (Official Video)

The production style, as you can hear, is organic, soulful, yet rugged, a perfect backdrop for gritty vocals filled with street knowledge, weed smoke and everyday struggles. Boonie Mayfield produced the entire album and he is a beast. All of the songs are tough but this one will make your face extra crunchy. Lyrically, nothing  pop and no cliche tough guy raps. Just truth, reality and attention to the craft of MCing. On top of that Chordz doubles on vocals for the chorus.

The video, directed by The HighBred themselves, with editing done by Chordz brother J’ Mel Lu, with some after touches by Sir Manley. If you haven’t see the first two videos off of this project, check out Original (We Remain) and How I See It.

Swave Sevah, P Stacks & Chordz Cordero: FUNERAL MUSIC [Director LottaZay]

This song came out in 2013 on the Swave Sevah’s album Son of a One Armed Man, but the video was made this past summer, after the passing of three great men, J Arch, PH aka Pumpkinhead and Sean Price. Rest in power! Never forgotten,

Swave Sevah and P Stacks (#TeamHOMI) body this track, with quotables such as

“…a bodycount that, can’t nobody count
cause, investigator’s cant’t get a word out nobody mouth!” – Swave Sevah

and

“We can get it on, with the heat if you
creep, spray your vehicle,
Sleep, you’ll be deceased, n*gga
Their gonna need a priest for you” – P Stacks

Chordz Cordero also lends his vocal talents to the hook. Check out his recent release The HighBred LP for more of his Hip Hop Soul.

MCMI RADIO: BAD SEED talks Thin Black Line & Police Brutality

Episode 1 – pt 1
MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk. Corey “BAD SEED” Pierson

For those who never knew about MCMI RADIO, it was launched Friday June 8th 2012, as part of the 6th Man Radio station (shout outs to Bad Seed), hosted on BlogTalkRadio. our first episode was MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk. Ep 1 “LYRICISTS LOUNGE” and continued for 50 straight episodes, until our final broadcast “MCMI RADIO: Ep 50 – Rock Steady Crew & End of the Weak”, on Friday, July 26th, 2013. The show was primarily hosted by myself (GMS) and my partner in MCMI, The Plague, Hydra and basically my brother from another mother, LR Blitzkrieg.

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

Over the year, we featured co-hosts and special guests including PackFM, MrMecc, Poison Pen, PH (#ripPH), Wordsworth, D-Stroy, Tonedeff, Sha Stimuli, Masta Ace, Mazzi, Vicky Green, Substantial, Bad Seed, Billy Screem (TeamHOMI), Organik (KOTD), Sara Kana, Homeboy Sandman, Vice Verses (EOW), Kosha Dillz, Audible Doctor (BrownBagAllstars), Chordz Cordero, yU, Steph the Saphic Songstress, The MarXman, Angel “Sweetness” Garcia (Pro Boxer) and Novell “Black Taoist” Bell (ManUpStandUp / BET’s “IRON RING”), I Am Many, Jess James Figeroa, Swave Sevah (TeamHOMI), Bryan from theBeeShine, Keith “Wild Child” Middleton, Icon the Mic King, and Kevin “DJ Organic” Fitzgerald (Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme).

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

After a year of doing the talk show live almost every week, LR Blitzkrieg and myself just couldn’t keep it up. The show took a lot of work, preparing, setting up interviews, getting crates ready. We needed to dedicate more of our time to the record label and to other aspects of MCMI, so we stopped doing the show.

Well, almost three years later – WE ARE BACK, BABY! This time the show will not be live and will not be weekly. It is now hosted on the MCMI YouTube Channel (Subscribe), which has MUCH better sound quality than BlogTalkRadio and will drop from time to time, whenever we have a good interview or something to talk about.

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

All of the previous BlogTalkRadio shows are archived and can be found on MCMIreport.com/radio-archives. That will be considered “Season 1”. The new shows on Youtube are “Season 2”. Some will be mostly audio, with photos and video clips inserted throughout. Others will be full video format. New music and videos will occasionally be featured between segments of talk.

The new shows will be alternately hosted by MCMI’s GMS, LR Blitzkrieg, Keith WildChild Middleton, MrMecc and other artists affiliated with MCMIreport.com and MCMI Records. So, subscribe, listen, like, comment, share and stay tuned!!!
