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.

Mic Handz (feat. Jaz-O) – “Bright Lights” (Video)

Mic Handz has been putting in serious work in the New York Underground scene in the past couple of years. Collaborations with Rockness Monstah and Sean Price (of Heltah Skeltah), Mims, Shabaam Sahdeeq and other New York underground heavy hitters, plus throwing and hosting his own Hip Hop events, his face on your screen, his words in your ear. Mic Handz made enough noise this past year to rank in the “Top 50 Emerging Artists of 2013″, according to AllHipHop.com.

This latest joint venture, “BRIGHT LIGHTS“,  will once again make you sit up and take notice as the Brooklyn MC is joined by the legendary Jaz-O, best known as Jay Z’s mentor and rhyme collaborator in the late 80′s (“Hawaiian Sophie”) and 90′s (“The Originators”). Who can forget the smash hit single “Nigga What, Nigga Who (Originator 99)” off Jay Z’s  Vol. 2: Hard Knock Life.

Directed by Donald Robinson Cole, the video is about the bright lights of the city and the pride of reppin’ your hometown.

C-RAYZ WALZ – ALMIGHTY: THE SOLAR FACTS (New Album)

C-Rayz Almighty

Wow, this new C-Rayz Walz album ALMIGHTY: The Solar Facts, is so culturally rich, sonically intense and lyrically dense, it will take you awhile to get through it. That is because this is NOT pop music! Songs are longer than 3 minutes, often have 2 to 5 (or more!) features on it. The beats are NY underground hardcore boom bap. The lyrical content is deep, spiritual, metaphysical “manifestation of Godly bars” as C-Rayz puts it.

Disclaimer: I (GMS) am featured on the intro track “Gee Chee“, a creative spelling of “G chi”, which refers to being a “G” (godly), and the life force that flows through our bodies in the form of blood, oxygen and internal energy. Those who study an internal martial art or understand Eastern philosophy will get that.

When I did my verse I knew there would be others on the song (most notably Grand Master Caz, who bodies it at the end, right after my verse), but I did not realize the amount of raw talent C-rayz recruited for this monumental effort. The album itself is 22 tracks and also features Tragedy Khadafi, Sadat X, Matisyahu, Afu-Ra, iCon The Mic King, L.I.F.E. Long, John Robinson, Jasiri X, Ike P The God, King Eric The III, 12 Gauge Phaze, The Godilla Jaguar Paw, Gilateen, Grey Granite, East Coast, Formaldahyde Dankenstein, Done One, Skewtape NYC, MyGrane McNastee, Faze Blue Légoon, Arsenal Hendrix, Freddie Bunz, Merc Versus, Kassius Kakes, Spit Raw, Subtex, Sav Killz, Murdoc, Kimence, Leeroy Destroy & Labal-S of BloodyMonkConsortium, Boss L, AFrican American Zombie Lawyer and I’m sure I am STILL missing a few people. The list of producers is just as long.

Yeah … and this is part 1 of a 9 album cycle. C-rayz is back with a vengeance and he is not F@#$in’ playin’! Hope you have some free time. The world will never be the same. Long live Hip Hop!

Cheng!
