MCMI REPORT: Bad Seed Drops Final Album ‘COREYOGRAPHY’

Bad Seed Drops Final Album 'COREYOGRAPHY'

Bad Seed Drops Final Album ‘COREYOGRAPHY’

After a brief hiatus from rap to work on some films and a web series, Corey Pierson, aka Bad Seed is back with what he calls one final album. Inspired by the loss of his close friend and crew member Robert PH Diaz last year, Seed decided to toss his hat int he ring one last time. This time it’s personal. Executive produced by PH, Bad Seed brings you COREYOGRAPHY.

The first single off the album is BELT OFF, produced by NOTTZ, for which a video will be dropping shortly. If that track is any indication, fans are not going to be disappointed by this new album. With beats by NottzMarco Polo, Will Tell and other dope producers, this is definitely one of his finest works.

After listening to an advance copy of the album, I have to say one of my personal favorite tracks is Are They OK, produced by Tone Jonez, about losing so many of our favorite artists recently, from Prince to Phife, and wondering about Sade, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Chaka Khan and other musical treasures. ‘Keep Bouncin‘, produced by Dr, No, is a tight ‘down the line‘ track, with Seed, Mic Handz and Mims, spittin’ bars over a hot beat.

Then there are concept songs ‘Django Unfiltered, about feeling like a slave to our 9 to 5, F*ck Cancer, about losing loved ones to the cursed disease. All in all it is a very well rounded album, giving us just the right balance meaningful content and hard beats and rhymes. At first because of the title, ‘Coreyography’, I thought it would be more autobiographical, but I see now, it actually touches on different things that Seed feels strongly about, different sides of Corey.

In the song ‘5 Minutes’, Seed airs out his feelings about the old Makin’ Records crew, which had differences and went their separate ways long ago. He references “307”, meaning 307 Clinton, which was the old Makin’ headquarters, in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Half way through the song, the beat changes and the late great PH drops some poignant lyrics, mentioning Makin’ Records and his transition to partner in MCMI Records, years later.

The album drops July 8th, on all digital outlets…iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon – all the usual suspects. The single is available on those outlets as well.

Check out the interview below.





The Bad Seed first leapt on the scene in the late 90’s as part of Makin’ Records roster, (which included the late great Pumpkinhead #ripPH). He released a few underground singles solo and with O.B.S (Seed, PH, Magnum P), with guest appearances by Jean Grae and others, but it was after he put out the phenomenal records he did with the producer NOTTZ, that Bad Seed started to garner acclaim and recognition as a major part of the East Coast Hip Hop movement. Those first few records included “Uhhnnh,” “Would You Luh Me?” and “For The Kids.”

With placements on both Funk Flex’s “The Mix Tape, Vol. IV” in 2000 and DJ Kay Slay’s “The Streetsweeper Vol. 2” in 2004, Seed continued to put out self-produced mixtapes, drop albums on independent labels and make recordings with the Plague, all of which gained him a strong rep for quality music. When his close friend Mims made a splash with the hit record “This Is Why I’m Hot,” in 2007, Seed went on tour with him, supporting him as hype man and opening act. This is how Seed was able to release several dope independent products over the years, keeping his name out there, putting in consistently good work.

Then couple of years ago, Bad Seed, also known as Corey Pierson started acting in some online and straight to DVD movies, which he then was inspired to also write and direct. You can check out two of his film projects the Book of Job web movie and Thin Black Line (about police brutality and corruption), which actually got a theatrical release in upstate NY.

In 2015, the passing of his long time friend and former musical collaborator, PH, inspired Corey to pick up his mic once again and finish his long awaited final Hip Hop album, Coreyography, executive produced by PH. The album has gems on it, including songs featuring PH, MIMS, MIC HANDZ, JERZEY and MR. SHA, with production by VES, TONE JONEZ, NY BANGERZ , MARCO POLO, DP, DR NO and WILL TELL, but first out of the gate is this banger produced by NOTTZ! 

Disrespect I won’t tolerate or deal with
Especially if them muthafuckers still kids
I ain’t ya age lil nigga go do ya homework
I was bangin when niggas was wearin long shirts
I was whylin when niggas was really on turfs
Yep, when snitchin get ya sister and ya mom murked
I ain’t ya peer lil nigga go get ya daddy
He dont wanna fight he talkin ’bout ADD ME
Puttin it out there
It is what it is
Tell shorty respect his elders cuz i beat people’s kids!

Being a seasoned veteran, Seed takes shots at the disrespectful, talent lacking, younger generation, not of MC’s or artists, but just kids in general these days. He let’s them know, if they get outta line, the belt is coming off!! Lol. Hardcore with a wry sense of humor is what Seed was always known for and this project does deliver.  Full Album set to drop July 8, 2016.

Rah Digga, arguable one of the nicest MC’s ever to touch the mic, male or female dropped this gem this summer wight he homie Marco Polo and I missed it! Well, here it is now.

The track is sick, but that’s to be expected from Marco Polo. Rasheda’s flow is still tough. The track is high energy enough without Mr. Chuck D’s blessing on it, but then he adds an endorsement at the end. I admit I was hoping for a Chuck D verse, but the song is hot, so I’m not complaining.

Been missing Rah Digga? Find her on Soundcloud, Bandcamp & Twitter.
