DJ GMS: The LOVE IS Mixtape (Stream + Download)

THE LOVE IS MIXTAPE

Last year MCMI Records dropped the HYDRA song “Love Is …” right before Valentine’s Day. The song “Love Is …”, produced by Keith “WildChild” Middleton, is a celebration of the Love of Hip Hop and a challenge to any rappers who do this for the money, without a true Love for the art.

Now in 2014, on Valentine’s Day, we present yo you … “The LOVE IS Mixtape”, mixed by DJ GMS, with a special intro from LR Blitzkrieg and testimonials from Masta Ace, Torae, Sha Stimuli, PackFM, Substantial, Chordz Cordero, Rich Medina, DP One, WildChild and many more, talking about what Hip Hop means to them.

Rick Ross feat. Dr. Dre and JAY Z – 3 Kings [Official Video]


Rick Ross feat. Dr. Dre and Jay Z – 3 Kings Official Video.

3 kings Jay Z Rick Ross Dr DreI know this is not new new, but its a real dope video (they call it a “Maybach Films Visual Piece“). I love the flashbacks to Dre and Jay’s pasts (Ross doesn’t do that as much but he doesn’t have 20 years in the game to build upon). The song (and video) are part flossing, part autobiographical storytelling, with a touch of street knowledge and politics. I know, some argue that Ross hasn’t earned the title of a “King” yet (though some think he has), but if you don’t give that to him lyrically, you have to admit he’s heavy on the business acumen. As for Dre (for beats, career) and Jay (lyrics, career), they definitely got it. Ross ain’t on their level yet, but he’s workin’ on it and this song with both giants certainly brings him one step closer.

Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap (Trailer)

tech n ice

Back in the days when i was a teenager… myself and GMS (MCMI co-owners) met Kevin Fitzgerald aka DJ Organic in central park at a summer stage concert. He was traveling around filming what would later become the critically acclaimed Documentary “Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme” We introduced him to the MC’s we knew, took him to the events we threw and frequented, helped plug him in to the new york Hip Hop scene and even made cameos along with PackFM, Mr.Mecc, Substantial & PH – our fellow crew members from “The Plague” Flash Forward over a decade and a new documentary with the same great feel, love (and many of the same artist) directed by Ice-T is about to hit the big screen….

Synopsis:
Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performers’ insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard a cappellas straight from the mouths of the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.

Shout out to my brother Keith “Wild Child” Middleton for the assist!

Don’t settle for Fake Beats!


Be on the alert! CD’s, watches and handbags aren’t the only things that get bootlegged! People are making and selling knock off technology just like anything else. Beats by Dre headphones are real popular, not only with audio professionals, but with teenagers and everyday people who just want to listen to their MP3 player or Laptop on something with quality sound that is also stylish. Nothing is more embarrassing than finding out that you bought fake kicks on ebay. But fake Beats by Dre may come in second. Go to this sight to verify that you have authentic Beats, not Fake Beats.

Warren G – This Is Dedicated To You (Nate Dogg Tribute)

Warren G - This Is Dedicated To You (Nate Dogg Tribute)

Warren G and Latoya Williams. This is dope. I’d like to hear something with the old crew of Dogg Pound and Dr. Dre, Warren G, Snoop, Daz and Kurupt, that would be crazy. Wonder if Nate had recorded some unreleased vocals?
