SUBSTANTIAL: New Album & Tour (Exclusive Interview) Pt 2 & 3

Substantial Interview 1

Wow, it’s been mad long since I posted Part 1 of this Interview. I apologize for the delay, but Substantial asked me not to put part 2 & 3 up yet, because he wasn’t quite ready to reveal the exclusives dropped in the later part of the Interview. So I put up the a cappella verse instead, to hold you over ’til he was ready.

Well, that day has come. Here are Parts 2 & 3 of the exclusive MCMIreport.com interview. I am not gonna make you wait for part 3 after all this time. Here’s both of them at once. Enjoy! Leave comments when you’re done watching.

MC Obama Tweets the Nation #AskObama

Obama Twitter Town HallFor those who didn’t catch it on tv, here’s the official video of President Obama’s Twitter session with America, July 6th, 2011. Barack Hussein Obama /aka/ Barry /aka/ Mr. President, made history by being the first President of the United States ever to “live tweet“. His message?

in order to reduce the deficit,what costs would you cut and what investments would you keep – bo

I’m not going to get into a whole political debate about the content of the first Twitter Town Hall Meeting, Barack Obama’s effectiveness as a President, etc. I’ll leave that to other sites, but I do believe we should all stay informed, so please watch the show, to continue your own education as to what is going on in this country.

I do, however, want to bestow on the President, the title of “MC“. Since he started his first campaign, Barack Obama has always been a crowd motivator, a great orator, a “great debater”, to use the title of SkyZoo’s last release. With his speeches, he is known as one who “moves the crowd” .

LESSONS: MASTA ACE – Once Upon a Time in The Projects

Masta Ace

This is an important lesson for kids and young men growing up, about choices and making the right one. Decisions you make in life can make you or break you and let’s face it – decisions and choices are about the only thing we can truly control. You can’t change what you were born into. You can’t change what other people think and do. To quote Gandoff in Lord of the Rings,

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

Masta Ace takes us down memory lane to share a personal story in which one day he was asked to ride out with some homies who were up to no good. Who knows what may have happened if he had made a different decision about what to do with his time. I’m glad for him and for his contributions to Hip Hop music that he made a good choice.

SUBSTANTIAL: A Cappella Verse (VIDEO)

Here’s a dope a cappella verse from Baltimore MC Substantial, reppin’ QN5 Music and The PLAGUE all day! This oughta hold you over until Pt. 2 of his Exclusive MCMI Interview drops in 2weeks.  Click to watch Pt 1 of the Interview.

LYRICS:

I should be your 1st pick, long before the 2nd interview, 3rd LP’s a “4 out of 5” minimum, Even with short pockets stood taller than a Sentinel, Drive is uncanny, not your average individual, Think I graduated from the “Xavier Institute”, but School of Hard Knocks’ where I took my classes, where I got my Masters of Ceremony Tactics, My Poor Righteous Teachers taught me to make only classics, you might know me as this, educator and a vocalist, but who the hell you know’s a team player AND a soloist? Can dress to impress but I’m “fly” when I’m “plane”, I’m too thorough if I quit you would hire me a-gain, so fire ’em if they lame, I’ve come for what’s mine, work around the clock, I can keep up with the time since elemntary I’ve flipped the dub from a Dime, While they get the pink-slip, I get get the W-9.

New Era Design Session

New Era LogoI have a good idea of what goes into design and creation of sneakers, having once attended a middle school apprenticeship given by Nike (shout out to Citizenschools.org), but this video released by New Era Cap Company gives you a look into the fitted cap design process. Pretty cool. Shouts to 4U House of Fitted owner Liang Huang. Gonna have to look into some MCMI fitted caps in the near future! That’s whassup!
