MCMI REPORT: FOR ME – MIC HANDZ (official Video)

MIC HANDZ has been going through a lot this past year or two. From the loss of loved ones, to his own health struggles, starting dialysis and looking for a kidney transplant, he has been going through changes physically, mentally and spiritually and that has to come out in the music.  “FOR ME”, a delayed visual off of the 2017 release HELL ON MY BACK: HEAVEN IN MY WAKE, was written as therapy. According to the Flatbush based MC, producer, graphic artist, video director and tour promoter, this song represents

“self-reflection of myself for myself ”  “I believe going public and being transparent is key to growth.”

You wont find cliched boasting about lyrical prowess on this song. Produced by the German underground producers DICHTER 2 PRODUCTIONS, the musical soundtrack, introspective bars and passionate delivery, platformed by a LAST AMERICAN BBOY supplied visual in the heart of Brooklyn, is a release from pain by creating art through music, in the vein of Muddy Waters and the Blues tradition. The visuals, with assistance from Taz , Jana, Wendy, Uncle Freddy , Nayarah, Parnia and ROCKNESS MONSTA, help set the mood and fill in parts of the story untold by Handz’ documentary lyrics.

If you missed the album when it dropped, it’s not too late.

HIT SQUAD REUNION SHOW (NYC) – Review, History Lesson & Video Footage

HIT SQUAD

image by fraze1972

Last night New York experienced an incredible reunion show by the original Hip Hop crew that paved the way for the Rocafela Dynasty, YMCMB and just about any other hip hop crew that came after. In the early 90’s the Hit Squad established dominance as the ultimate hardcore “super-crew” consisting of EPMD, Redman, K-Solo, and Das EFX. It was on EPMD’s third (and some say best) album, Business As Usual that the “Hit Squad” was first mentioned. That album featured Redman. K-Solo had been featured on an earlier album and Das EFX on their next one, Business Never Personal, which also contained the mega hit “Headbanger“.
