MCMIreport.com & MCMI Records presents:
‘DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’
MCMI releases hip hop project with the MarXman and announces Fall indie tour of Western Europe.
The MarXman in collaboration with MCMI releases Days of Future Past, a musical journey from the Golden Age of Hip Hop into the unknown future.
Days of Future Past is an alternate universe, a re-imagining of hip hop reality through the eyes of a poet. The MarXman eloquently conveys the story of a displaced artist finding his own sound in the main stream of consciousness.
The album commences with a sound byte from the classic cartoon X-men: The Animated Series, depicting an apocalyptic era following the “assassination of the‘90s.” All 15 tracks are written and performed by the MarXman with the exception of “Where I’ll Be” featuring King Chung and “Beautiful Struggle” featuring Sheena O. Murray.
Each song is infused with the MarXman’s lyrical experience, blending R&B melodies with memorable “golden era” instrumentation. Listeners are challenged to rethink their inner most desires in “T.P.I.R.” a sample from the game show The Price Is Right. Buckshot of Black Moon’s “I Got Cha Opin” is remixed into a tribute to the nightlife in “Me & My Crew.” “Off the Ground” and “Take A Flight” directly refer to the MarXman’s upcoming solo independent tour of Western Europe in the Fall, advocating the need to soar over your comfort zone to follow your dreams.
Days of Future Past can be found on MCMIreport.com, or downloaded directly from MCMI.BandCamp.com

Props to the theBeeShine for featuring this on their site. Fudge Pudge is a classic song by Organized Konfusion, featuring the homie O.C. As Bryan from theBeeShine explains,
… the song does not reference or explain the term “fudge pudge” that is mentioned only twice.
MCMI’s PH asked people at the Organized Konfusion reuninon (BB Kings) what “fudge pudge” really means. Some of the answers are hilarious!
Besides asking the 3 artists on the song, PH also asked Chip Fu, Rahzel, Mr. Mecc and some others what the mysterious song title means. I believe O.C. was actually telling us the real deal. Monch’s answer is a little graphic.

If you don’t know who Ike P is, this song will give you a quick tour into the mind of a true street MC, who is cut from a cloth they don’t make anymore. As a Harlem representer , 1/2 of Heatrock Monstahz (the other half being Swave Sevah) and founder of Â Team Homi (well known crew in the battle circuit), Ike P steps off on this solo mission to throw all the bullshit rappers into traffic on this track. Prod by V-Don who’s production credits include Jadakiss/Vado amongst others. Bump this if your into Real NYC Street Hop. Grab a 40 and a blunt and get ready …. in the words of Ike P – Fuck Outta Here !!!
