SUBSTANTIAL – MADE IN MARYLAND (produced by ODDISEE)

SUBSTANTIAL – MADE IN MARYLAND (produced by ODDISEE)

featuring Steph the Sapphic Songstress & DJ Jav

SUBSTANTIAL - MADE IN MARYLAND (produced by ODDISEE)

Plague-member and MCMI affiliate MC Substantial teams up with Mello Music Group’s fellow DMV native, the producer Oddisee for Made In Maryland, the first official single off his long awaited album, The Past Is Always Present In The Future. While Substantial spent a lot of time in New York early in his career , the song is an ode to Maryland, where he once again resides since he returned to his home state several years ago. If you are a Substantial fan then you must know Steph the Sapphic Songstress and DJ Jav, who are frequent collaborators with the prolific MC. Avoiding samples, the scratches and cuts you hear are off of vocals from Joe.D.

When ef@mm member QN5 Music’s Tonedeff heard the song, he was quoted as saying “S#!t so hard, I’m about to move there!” (Sidenote: Stan please make more hard s#!t like this so Tone can move, lol. Thanks.)

MCMI Report: Dezert Eez (feat. Talib Kweli) – Rolex Dreamin’

The Michigan-based crew Dezert Eez kick off their 6th album (since their 2005 debut mixtape, The Realness), with lead single, “Rolex Dreamin’,” which starts off with a verse from the veteran Brooklyn MC Talib Kweli, followed by the trio of 5-Star, Nivek, and O’Nill. Kweli sounds right at home over the jazzy Thovo production. The group shows their confidence by letting him go first. Most people put the celebrity guest feature last on a track, but Dezert Eez have no need to follow that convention.

U.G. (of Cella Dwellas) – The Mystic (1st Leak off Solo LP, Portals)

U.G. - The Mystic (1st Leak off Solo LP, Portals)

From U.G. (of Cella Dwellas fame), comes the first leak off the long awaited Portals. “The Mystic” comes with an eerie, but head-nodding beat from IDE. The flow is classic UG. Tales of magic, planet draining powers, thrones, and fractured bones from blows thrown, will all please longtime fans, with the powerful voice and sick delivery of a veteran – simply put, UG’s ill. Still! And like he says in the hook “sounds like nothin’ else you’ve ever heard”.

The Brooklyn spitter, no stranger to underground cyphers and hostile competition, pulls no punches and attacks with the aggression of a battle MC.

“Listen/ I bang my chest like a bongo/ Congo/ Push rocks like Rondo/ Arms throw/ Combos/ F*ck up your whole ensemble.”

U.G. - The Mystic (1st Leak off Solo LP, Portals)

After several delays, Portals, which includes guest features from the likes of Celph Titled, Mista Sinista, Life Long, Necro and more, is here, ready for Pre-order on iTunes. You get “The Mystic” immediately upon pre-order. The full album hits all major digital retailers and streaming outlets on October 21, via Creative Juices Music.

Skull N Tones x Do You Mind

Skull N Tones is a DJ/production team, art and international dance movement, equally into Hip Hop and the EDM Dance music scene. You may have seen some of their beat videos on youtube, or the official music video for their track New World Order. This unofficial remix, Skull N Tones x Do You Mind, is based on the DJ Khaled song and is made with the Club DJ in mind.

The founders of Skull N Tones collective, Jarret & Bleu, began their career by making instrumentals for underground hip hop acts, such as Brooklyn Academy and Steven King.  Years later, the group transitioned into trap and gritty-style EDM when they partnered with Amsterdam-based clothing company, Nuff Said.  The team performs with masks using their iconic logo.  Their current mission is to create a platform where people can lose their identity and let their souls show by dancing their faces off.
