HYDRA – “Love Is …” produced by Wild Child (MCMI Records)

HYDRA LOVE IS

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, MCMI Records flagship group HYDRA has pulled the gem “Love Is…” out of the vault to share with the world. The subject matter of “Love Is…” is not new, but is the group’s spin on what love of their craft means to them. Sampling the 1973 hit by MFSB “Love is the Message”, Wild Child, the producer of the group, crafts an energetic track that the trio flow effortlessly on.

To further the message, the other two members of HYDRA, GMS and LR Blitzkrieg, have put together The “LOVE IS…Mixtape”, compiling various songs on the love of music, that will be available for free download soon, including many Hip Hop classics as well as a few surprises.

PH – “KING LATIFAH” Single (Audio + Artwork)


 
PH is back with another single off his full length album Know The Ledge on MCMI Records. KING LATIFAH is the most popular song to date (according to DJ’s, fans at shows, hits on BandCamp, sales and streams on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.). Produced by Chino, the song’s title embraces a jab thrown at PH during one of his many hip hop battles. While it was a funny line, he realized that

“Queen Latifah is not wack, so to compare me to her, a Hip Hop, television and film Icon and remind yourself that I am King? It’s all good. I’ll wear that.”PH


With his dedication to the battle scene, classic albums like A Beautiful Mind, Orange Moon Over Brooklyn and Know The Ledge, tours all over the globe and collaborations with some of hip hop’s elite, PH has earned the title of “underground king.” Support by getting the single, album or King Latifah Tee Shirt and by spreading this through Facebook, Twitter and all other Social Media.

[New Music] FREEDOM (How We Get) by GMS & CHORDZ CORDERO

Freedom (How We Get)
 

On Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday, MCMI Records presents FREEDOM (How We Get)“, a musical collaboration between GMS (Hydra/The Plague/MCMI) and Chordz Cordero (Intaphaze/MCMI).

According to GMS, “The song kinda came about by accident. We were in the lab to work on something else and I had this beat playing. Chordz said, ‘Wait, leave that on. Let me write to that.’”

Ten minutes later, they recorded it. Once Chordz dropped his vocals on the track, the two knew they had something powerful on their hands. GMS added speeches from several historical figures who have championed the cause of freedom, to enhance the feeling of inspiration generated by Chordz’ lyrics and harmonies.

“I chose people who have stood up for people’s rights and fought for an ideal of freedom,” explains GMS.

GMS Brooklyn picGMS is an emcee in the group Hydra and a larger collective known as The PLAGUE. He has appeared on projects on QN5 Music and on PH’s last 2 albums “Orange Moon Over Brooklyn” (Soulspasm/Rawkus) and “Know The Ledge” (MCMI), as well as put out 2 Plague mixtapes featuring the crew. He also DJ’s and plays several instruments. He has been making tracks on the low for years, but this is the first song he has released as a producer.

“A lot of people know me as an emcee / lyricist.” GMS tells us, ”Most people don’t know I am also a musician.”

Chordz Cordero is a Jamaica Queens artist that has been perfecting his skills as an emcee, singer, producer, andChordz Cordero MCMI musician since 1995. He has collaborated with artists such as St. Joe Louis, Brokn.Englsh, Daniel Joseph, Swave Sevah, and PH, to name a few. You might also remember him from playing the trumpet and singing the intro to PH’s song King Latifah at the Album Release Show at Southpaw.

“I met PH at a Jean Grae concert at Highline Ballroom a few years back,” Chordz recalls, “when he was performing with his former group Brooklyn Academy. After a few chats we got together to do some tracks for both of our projects.“

PH introduced Chordz to GMS and LR Blitzkrieg, his partners at MCMI Records.

“GMS gave me some beats to rock to and I had ideas for some, but nothing hit me like “Freedom“.”, Chordz explains. “I needed a song that spoke to the people and not just one group or race. “Freedom” is for all mankind. We live in a crazy world and everyone screams daily to be “free” from something (self destruction, poverty, prison, debt, social stigma, etc.). This is for all of us!”

The song is dropping on Jan. 15th 2012 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.’s on his birthday, but celebrates all those who have fought for freedom, from Bobby Kennedy, to Gloria Steinem, to Malcom X, to others in the worldwide struggle, including the struggle within ourselves.

DJ’s, producers, MC’s and Spoken Word artists who want to create remixes of the song, get in touch with GMS [at] MCMIreport.com. There will be a video contest announced in the near future as well.
