When I was a young pup, growing up in the Golden Era of Hip Hop, ULTRAMAGNETIC MC’s dropped a single that blew my mind and literally changed my life. Up until then I knew I wanted to rhyme, but it was the song Ego Trippin’ that made me really take notice to the scratching and the production. the beat was so funky, the breakbeat, the baseline, the synth stabs and the scratches on the chorus made me want to some day also produce and DJ. I am sure countless artists have similar stories of inspiration from this seminal pioneering Hip Hop group that also was the first (that I know of) that had rhymes that didn’t – well, rhyme – not always at least.
So I got real exited when I saw that ULTRAMAGNETIC MC’s are on a European Tour, marking the 25th anniversary of that first album “CRITICAL BEATDOWN” with 10 shows
The Ultramagnetic MC’s have come back together to give Hip Hop Fans all across the globe what they are missing, a true authentic hip-hop show!
