Homeboy Sandman – Life Support

Homeboy Sandman – Life Support

Homeboy Sandman - Life SupportOkay first off, if the tag line got your attention because you thought Homeboy Sandman was on life support, don’t worry – he’s not. Neither is his career. Neither is Hip Hop. In fact, his career is one of the reasons that Hip Hop is not dead. Creative songs and videos like this one keep pushing the art form forward, despite a sea of mediocre artists and some who are straight trash.

Homeboy Sandman has always had great creative videos that match his zany, outside of the box mentality, which has attracted such a strong following over the years. People love his vibe, so a video has to capture that vibe. This one does.

When you are done watching it, click on some other videos of his on youtube. You wont be disappointed.

Homeboy Sandman – Life Support, produced by Hugo LX, is a new track, not on any album release, strictly for the video, but Sand has a new album coming up this spring called Kindness for Weakness. Catch him at Stones Throw’s event at SXSW, March 19.

Video Director: Pace Rivers. Art Directors: Nicole McBride & Mary Godley. Producers: Victor Lucia & Mary Godley. Special Thanks to: Paul Lamb, Ross Wittenberg, Lisa Wollter.

MCMI RADIO: BAD SEED talks Thin Black Line & Police Brutality

Episode 1 – pt 1
MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk. Corey “BAD SEED” Pierson

For those who never knew about MCMI RADIO, it was launched Friday June 8th 2012, as part of the 6th Man Radio station (shout outs to Bad Seed), hosted on BlogTalkRadio. our first episode was MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk. Ep 1 “LYRICISTS LOUNGE” and continued for 50 straight episodes, until our final broadcast “MCMI RADIO: Ep 50 – Rock Steady Crew & End of the Weak”, on Friday, July 26th, 2013. The show was primarily hosted by myself (GMS) and my partner in MCMI, The Plague, Hydra and basically my brother from another mother, LR Blitzkrieg.

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

Over the year, we featured co-hosts and special guests including PackFM, MrMecc, Poison Pen, PH (#ripPH), Wordsworth, D-Stroy, Tonedeff, Sha Stimuli, Masta Ace, Mazzi, Vicky Green, Substantial, Bad Seed, Billy Screem (TeamHOMI), Organik (KOTD), Sara Kana, Homeboy Sandman, Vice Verses (EOW), Kosha Dillz, Audible Doctor (BrownBagAllstars), Chordz Cordero, yU, Steph the Saphic Songstress, The MarXman, Angel “Sweetness” Garcia (Pro Boxer) and Novell “Black Taoist” Bell (ManUpStandUp / BET’s “IRON RING”), I Am Many, Jess James Figeroa, Swave Sevah (TeamHOMI), Bryan from theBeeShine, Keith “Wild Child” Middleton, Icon the Mic King, and Kevin “DJ Organic” Fitzgerald (Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme).

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

After a year of doing the talk show live almost every week, LR Blitzkrieg and myself just couldn’t keep it up. The show took a lot of work, preparing, setting up interviews, getting crates ready. We needed to dedicate more of our time to the record label and to other aspects of MCMI, so we stopped doing the show.

Well, almost three years later – WE ARE BACK, BABY! This time the show will not be live and will not be weekly. It is now hosted on the MCMI YouTube Channel (Subscribe), which has MUCH better sound quality than BlogTalkRadio and will drop from time to time, whenever we have a good interview or something to talk about.

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

All of the previous BlogTalkRadio shows are archived and can be found on MCMIreport.com/radio-archives. That will be considered “Season 1”. The new shows on Youtube are “Season 2”. Some will be mostly audio, with photos and video clips inserted throughout. Others will be full video format. New music and videos will occasionally be featured between segments of talk.

The new shows will be alternately hosted by MCMI’s GMS, LR Blitzkrieg, Keith WildChild Middleton, MrMecc and other artists affiliated with MCMIreport.com and MCMI Records. So, subscribe, listen, like, comment, share and stay tuned!!!

Homeboy Sandman – Whatchu Want From Me (Video)

We spoke with Homeboy Sandman about the release of this video and his new album “First of a Living Breed” a few weeks ago on MCMI Radio. Sandman always comes with dope visuals to match his equally amazing music. Be sure to cop the album.

HOMEBOY SANDMAN “FIRST OF A LIVING BREED” [ALBUM]

first-of-a-living-breedHomeboy Sandman is on tour in California promoting his new album, “First of a Living Breed”, but he will be on MCMI RADIO this Friday by remote, talking to us about his relationship with the label StonesThrow Records, his writing process, his previous music and of course the new album, which just dropped yesterday. Tune in Friday, 6pm – 8pm or click the link anytime after that to hear the show on demand. MCMI RADIO Ep 14

* UPDATE: Homeboy dropped some gems while on MCMI RADIO! Here it is:

This track, produced by Paul White, is not on “First of a Living Breed”, it’s a bonus track announcing the album to the world. One thing that I love about this album (besides of course the music), is that there is a Lyrics sheet to go along with it. I have always felt that all rap albums should come with a lyrics sheet. The whole point of Hip Hop is what it is that you have to say. If you have anything of value or interest to say then heads would want to read the lyrics as well as listen. A lot of (non-Hip Hop) albums I listened to from my parents vinyl collections when I was a kid had these. Cop the album as CD, MP3 or Vinyl, along with the lyrics sheet from the links below.

Substantial – Reloaded (ft. Homeboy Sandman & Javier Starks) [Download + Lyrics]

Reloaded
LISTEN | FREE DOWNLOAD
As Substantial’s Mello Music Group debut Home Is Where The Art Is nears release, the DMV MC can’t contain his excitement. In anticipation of the release, Substantial joins indie powerhouse Homeboy Sandman and up-and-coming DMV wordsmith Javier Starks for the high-energy track “ReLOADED“.

The track doesn’t appear on Substantial’s own album but is instead a bonus cut from Javier Starks‘ upcoming EP, executive produced by ‘Substizzle’ and produced by Joe.D, (the main producer for Gods’Illa). The cut packs a punch in the instrumental alone. The MC’s spit accordingly, the always amazing Homeboy Sandman references a wide array of 80’s video games in the opening bars and Javier Starks hits the track running with the flow of a veteran. Substantial might take the cake though, combining the technical efficiency of his peers with a substance few else achieve, name checking Steve Biko and the streets of Baltimore a few bars apart.

Home Is Where The Art Is‘ drops September 4th on Mello Music Group. | Substantial-Music.com
