MCMI REPORT: Sha Stimuli – Lazarus

MCMI REPORT: Sha Stimuli – Lazarus

As tumultuous and uncertain times continue to exist in the world, Sha Stimuli provides a soundtrack for those that want to remain grateful yet continue to strive for greatness, with Lazarus.
MCMI REPORT: Sha Stimuli - Lazarus

This one slipped by without a write up from me when it came out and couple months ago, but I wanted to shine some light on it before the year is up, because Sha Stimuli is an artist who always drops knowledge along with his entertainment and there are major gems on this project.

For instance on Jail University, he schools us with “Jail over Yale, Rikers over Rutgers” about how it seems like there is more celebration over coming home from a bid than graduating college and how having been incarcerated would have gotten him a lot more street cred and promotion for his music than college.

MCMI REPORT: Sha Stimuli - LazarusNever afraid to divulge into important and controversial topics, the amount of substance Sha Stimuli puts into on “Lazarus”, will unquestionably stand out amongst other releases. If you want to know more about Sha, how he grew up, what led him to pursue basketball and then Hip Hop, his dreams to become the best MC and rich along the way, how he felt when he lost his record deal and other mishaps of his career, check out The Wake Pt 2 featuring MeLa Mechinko. 

All the songs are heavily autobiographical and intensely introspective and self-reflective. This album sounds like therapy for Sha. His MCing is on the highest level, as always. He has intricate flows, schemes, rhythm and cadence, but besides that, you can tell Sha is working through his demons. Paired with catchy and meaningful choruses, it is amazingly entertaining to listen to.

Over the years Stimuli has release an enormous amount of music, which helped his core fans get to know him on a deep level. Some of the tracks didn’t match the lyricism, sonically, but this project is NOT lacking there. Your head is going to nod whether you care about lyrics or not (but we know you do or you wouldn’t be on this website).  Production is handled by Redd Lettaz, Vanderslice & Green Steez, Black Metaphor, Nytroglic, Agor, Eddie Brock 661, and Lucki Handz with features by Redd Lettaz, MeLa Machinko, Apryl Williams, and Jennifer Myles. The album was mixed by Amond “AJ” Jackson and Rob Thomas for Salem Psalms, and mastered by Brian “Change” Penny. “Lazarus” will be released through 10 Minutes Late Records.

Definitely worth a salute in 2017, you can listen to the tracks right here on the BandCamp player or follow the links to support the artist, so we can continue to hear more more Hip Hop that expresses something real and pushes the culture forward, in an era of tight pants and “Molly, Percocet“. You can download the digital release or get an autographed CD.

Sean Price & Small Professor – “Refrigerator P”

Sean Price & Small Professor – “Refrigerator P”

Sean Price & Small Professor – “Refrigerator P” just dropped Black Friday aka Record Store Day 2017. “Refrigerator P,” a bruiser of a track from Philly producer Small Professor and the late, legendary Sean Price, released by Coalmine Records. To coincide with the single, Fat Beats will be releasing “Refrigerator P” on vinyl in honor of Record Store Day.

Sean Price & Small Professor - "Refrigerator P"

As soon as the track starts and you hear “P!” you know its on! Rockness Monsta on the hook, it’s almost a Heltah Skeltah joint. With DJ Revolution on the cuts, the song is tough.
 
Now available as a 10-Inch maxi-single which comes loaded with the instrumental and a special bonus beat selection called “P’s Theme.” Rounding out the release is the smoothed out “Peaky Blinders” remix of “Refrigerator P” featuring the Emerald Isle-born emcee, Rob Kelly. Listeners will no doubt attest that he holds his weight alongside P. 
 
To make this RSD title even more of a collector’s item is the illustrated artwork designed by FRKO, perhaps best known for being Action Bronson’s in-house artist. These won’t last long, so order your copy today! “Refrigerator P” is also available for stream and download through the digital outlet of your choice.

MCMI REPORT: SKULL N TONES – BLAZE

As Skull N Tones get ready to release their new single called Blaze on July 14th, they drop a pre-release music video featuring two female artists. One is a crystal enthusiast (someone who studies crystals and their healing powers within the human body) by the name of “Ms. Lady NYX“. It may seem psychedelic or demonic, but it’s actually spiritually positive. From what I understand, she is cleansing the stones through sage smoke, which is supposed to cleanse the impurities and bad spirits out of the crystals. The art direction and body painting involved was done by “Blessed“.

Is it Hip Hop? … Trap? … EDM? It’s hard to define. It’s a mix, containing attributes of each. Either way its a cool video to look at and the track could bless the dance floor either a rave or a Hip Hop party. Once again Skull N Tones combine visual art, film making and musical production to create dope aesthetics. Enjoy!

Stay blessed!
