MCMI REPORT: FOR ME – MIC HANDZ (official Video)

MIC HANDZ has been going through a lot this past year or two. From the loss of loved ones, to his own health struggles, starting dialysis and looking for a kidney transplant, he has been going through changes physically, mentally and spiritually and that has to come out in the music.  “FOR ME”, a delayed visual off of the 2017 release HELL ON MY BACK: HEAVEN IN MY WAKE, was written as therapy. According to the Flatbush based MC, producer, graphic artist, video director and tour promoter, this song represents

“self-reflection of myself for myself ”  “I believe going public and being transparent is key to growth.”

MCMI REPORT: FOR ME - MIC HANDZ (official Video)

You wont find cliched boasting about lyrical prowess on this song. Produced by the German underground producers DICHTER 2 PRODUCTIONS, the musical soundtrack, introspective bars and passionate delivery, platformed by a LAST AMERICAN BBOY supplied visual in the heart of Brooklyn, is a release from pain by creating art through music, in the vein of Muddy Waters and the Blues tradition. The visuals, with assistance from Taz , Jana, Wendy, Uncle Freddy , Nayarah, Parnia and ROCKNESS MONSTA, help set the mood and fill in parts of the story untold by Handz’ documentary lyrics.

If you missed the album when it dropped, it’s not too late.

SEAN PRICE (RIP) & SMALL PROFESSOR’S COLLAB LP, ’86 Witness

SEAN PRICE (RIP) & SMALL PROFESSOR’S COLLAB LP, ’86 Witness is a collaborative album from the late Sean Price and producer Small Professor. Check out the first single, “John Gotti”. Although it features AG Da CoronerGuilty Simpson, and Your Old Droog, hometown hero Sean P sets it off right away as soon as the record drops.

Of course everyone on the track spits impressive bars (or I wouldn’t have thrown it up) The single is an instant download with iTunes pre-order for 86 Witness, which is also available now for pre-order in a limited magenta/black swirl vinylCD with bonus content, and bundle package equipped with a “Refrigerator P” jersey-style T-shirt.

“Lyrically, P pays homage to the year 1986 with clever bars boasting slick, pop culture-referencing wordplay. He big-ups the Bears’ Super Bowl XX win on “Refrigerator P”; references Herbie Hancock’s time-honored Round Midnight OST on “Midnight Rounds”; shows love to Just Ice’s “Latoya” on the Quelle Chris-featured “Latoya Jackson”; and dedicates track six to John Gotti with the help of AG Da Coroner, Guilty Simpson and Your Old Droog.

Throughout the rest of the album, P spits slick nods to Boogaloo Shrimp, Joe Joe Dancer, Sinbad, and other characters central to that era. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Ruckus project without mentions of the man who inspired his ‘Mic Tyson’ alias. And sure enough, sound bytes from the heavyweight bruiser appear on closer, “Word to Mother.”” – Press Release

The album, which includes additional guest features from Rock, Quelle Chris, Illa Ghee, Elucid, Caste, Zilla Rocca, Reef the Lost Cauze, DJ Revolution and more is due out Feb 08 as a dual-label release via Coalmine Records and Duck Down Music.

According to the official Press Release,

86 Witness is a testament to both Hip-Hop’s Golden Era, and the unbelievable talents of Sean Price, one of the genre’s biggest and best voices who was taken from us far, far too soon. His hilarious, tack-sharp rhymes are complemented by the imaginative and dusty production of Philly’s Small Professor, who may just be rap’s best kept secret.”

Tracklist:

  • 01. Bear Witness (Intro) [feat. DJ Revolution] 
  • 02. Refrigerator P (feat. Rockness Monstah & DJ Revolution) 
  • 03. Latoya Jackson (feat. Quelle Chris & DJ Revolution) 
  • 04. Midnight Rounds (feat. Elucid & Castle) 
  • 05. P’s Theme (Interlude) 
  • 06. John Gotti (feat. AG Da Coroner, Guilty Simpson & Your Old Droog) 
  • 07. Think About It (feat. Illa Ghee, Rockness Monstah & DJ Revolution) 
  • 08. Word to Mother (feat. DJ Revolution) 
  • 09. John Gotti (feat. Reef the Lost Cauze, Curly Castro & Zilla Rocca) [Philly Blunt Remix] 
  • 10. Refrigerator P (feat. Rob Kelly) [Peaky Blinders Remix]

Younger heads will appreciate Sean’s classic witty punchlines, wordplay and no-holds-barred hip hop ethic of brutal honesty, at times self-depreciating and always rugged, yet humorous. Veteran’s closer to the God’s age will delight in 80’s references and celebrated nomenclature. Every Hip Hop head will appreciate music that knocks. Salute Sean Price! Sean lives on! #RIP

MCMI REPORT: LR BLITZKRIEG – IN THESE STREETS feat MR. LIVE & UG

LR BLITZKRIEG - IN THESE STREETS feat MR. LIVE & UG

MCMI’s LR Blitzkrieg is back with his second single/video, “In These Streets”, featuring hip hop veterans, Mr. Live and U.G. (Cella Dwellas), off his forthcoming project, “Outta Nowhere” TBA. 

The track bangs with hard-hitting production by U.G. (aka P90X). Mr. Live’s sets it off with simultaneous humor and gun bars:

“John Smith..Bringin’ a long fif..a couple of broadswords and a Tec with the wrong grip..a 30 Odd six, right body, the wrong ditch..a nigga way off you can tell by the strong twitch…”

U.G. of Cella Dwella fame also kills it and let’s us know:

“It’s UG and Blitz, Wu-Tang ain’t the only ones NOT to F–k with!”

Blitz is the clean up hitter and packs so many hard hitting punches into his 16, I don’t want to give too much away, but one line that could sum up the intentions of his verse is:

“Learn young’, I burn somethin’, You earned nothin’, y’all Taxed the game too long and our Return’s comin’…”

The video shot and edited by Mic Handz of Soul Mazonz, is a mad dash through the streets of Brooklyn, as Blitz and his like-minded MC friends chase “Lil” and “Yung”, played by Qaasim and Khalil Middleton (of the group Juggernaut War Party, and of television’s The Get Down, The Naked Brothers Band and American Idol). At the end of the video, ‘Krieg catches the youngsters and hands them CD’s from Busta Rhymes, Sean P (#RIP) and PH (#RIP), to give them examples of what real hip hop is. Like a Marvel Studios after credits scene, there is footage of the two MC’s excitedly reciting parts of Busta’s “Show Me What You Got” off of the Anarchy album.

The single was supposed to drop in March, but Blitz decided to bless y’all with a present on his birthday and leaked it himself on February 6th. It is available on SoundcloudBandcampiTunes, Amazon and all digital outlets worldwide!

Enjoy!

MCMI REPORT: JAY LONZO – Last Drop (Official Music Video)

MCMI Report: JAY LONZO – Last Drop (Official Music Video)

A little behind the scenes Hip Hop trivia – yours truly recorded Jay Lonzo’s first joint Double Zero at MCMI 500 Studios in Brooklyn 2 years ago. Since then he has been heating up, following his guest appearance at BARCLAY CENTER. You might recall his first video “Live from Brooklyn” we posted awhile back (find it here) or his freestyle for Team Backpack that got heavy spins.

MCMI REPORT: JAY LONZO - Last Drop (Official Music Video)

This latest video “Last Drop” from Brooklyn’s youngest in charge, was shot by EZRU, all over the streets of Brooklyn, with a moment or two at Stonebrown Studios, where he has been recording tracks for his future release It Takes a Village.

The video is tight. Jay rides the head-nodding beat perfectly, showing you how easily he can stretch a freestyle into a catchy video, “no ad libs, no hook” and keep you listening. Lonzo is just giving you a little glimpse into his life right now, but he does slip in some knowledge on Donald Trump and Colin Kaepernick in there, plus his dreams for the future.

It’s illogical to think that soon wouldn’t be me, everybody coppin’ tickets just to come and see me (and that’s the dream”

He also drops that his album is done (no Khaled), so expect that soon.
