MCMI REPORT: Seed x Nottz – No Way in Hell (Album)

Seed x Nottz - No Way in Hell (Album)

Last week MCMI’s LR Blitzkrieg, Keith “Wildchild” Middleton, GMS and MrMecc attended an advance listening party for Seed X Nottz – No Way in Hell featuring the Bad Seed and produced by Nottz, atIMI Studios in Manhattan. The project brings the BK-VA duo of Seed & Nottz back together again, giving you another dose of the hypnotic hip hop serum they concocted years ago with songs like For the Kids, Uhhnnh, Would You Luh Me. The pair sounded great together back in the day, but then went their separate ways for quite awhile. Both released a plethora of songs with other artists and 20 years later Seed announced that he was going to retire as an MC.

But before retiring Seed dropped his “final” album Coreyography, featuring one joint produced by Nottz, Belt Off (Official Video). I’m sure if someone asked if he would drop another album he answered “No way in hell,” but the song knocked so hard that it inspired the two to talk about possibly, just maybe, recording another project together.

Fast forward and we are sitting in a room listening to No Way In Hell. The room is filled more with friends, family and real MCees than Industry, which is fitting, because if you know Seed or Nottz, there is nothing industry or contrived about either of them. As Seed and his daughter Boopy hosted the event, playing some tracks twice at our request, one thing was incredibly clear: this project was definitely worth the wait.

The concept is that the album is narrated by a female disc jockey broadcasting over W-HELL 66.6FM radio. Seed tells us he was inspired by the way the cult classic gang movie WARRIORS was narrated.

No Way In Hell starts off with the politically charged lead single “The Devil’s In The White House.”

Then there’s the “Belt Off Remix”, featuring Rockness Monsta (of Heltah Skeltah) and NapsNdreds. As Seed tells it, Rock was originally set to appear on “The Devil,” but it just felt right to have him on the revamped “Belt Off.”

“I decided it would be doper to hear him on there due to the subject matter,” Seed says. “As a fan, I wanted to hear Rock take his belt off and whoop some ass. And as far as Naps goes, dude’s my new favorite rapper. Period.”

Other standouts include the relationship drama of “Pretty Little Liar” featuring Tiye Phoenix, the super-funky “Yellow Lights” featuring Sauce Money, and the verbal middle finger Bad Mood.” And when put together, they form one of the year’s best rap releases. Hopefully it doesn’t take another 20 years for these two to drop another project.

No Way in Hell which also boasts guests appearances from Sauce Money and DJ Total Eclipse (X-Ecutioners), is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Crisis Center Collective!

If you are in NYC you can attend the NO WAY IN HELL Album Release Party tonight at The Delancey, part of the Rock Da House series, presented by Doc Ahk, Mic Handz and DJ Toshi. The line up is sick, admission is free and there’s drink specials early.
