Chordz Cordero original lyrics over instrumentals by his favorite producers


MCMI REPORT: CHORDZ CORDERO - A Day With My Favorite Producers (Soultape)

Intaphaze/MCMI Records’ Chordz Cordero finally returns with his new solo project, “CHORDZ CORDERO – A Day With My Favorite Producers (Soultape)”. The songs were recorded in between albums, as a way to keep the creative juices flowing. Now it is available for free (or optional donation) on Bandcamp.

MCMI REPORT: CHORDZ CORDERO - A Day With My Favorite Producers (Soultape)I decided to release it now, to show love to all who have supported my official group album with Sir Manley, The HighBred and all my projects over the years. This gives fans some more music to listen to while I am working on a solo album and some more group projects, coming soon. – Chordz Cordero

Born out of his passion for Hip Hop & Soul, this “Soultape” explores Chordz’ many thoughts and emotions on his journey through life! “A Day With My Favorite Producers” was completely recorded and mixed by Chordz himself in his basement studio. It’s straight up Soul, unpolished and raw! Even so, he did do a video for one song, produced by Black Milk, called Street Life. The video was shot and edited by Chordz brother J’Mel Lu, who has been building his directorial resume with videos from King Jerz, V2, Rell Peso and of course, his brother Chordz, who co-directs some of the videos as well.


You can stream or download the rest of Chordz’ homage to his favorite producers from Bandcamp and if you missed The HighBred LP dropped last year, it is available as a CD and digital download as well. And don’t forget to check out the last HighBred video, 3rd Stone Blues ft PH aka Pumpkinhead, here. #ripPH

Busta Rhymes - The Return Of The Dragon (The Abstract Went On Vacation)

That’s right. Q-Tip went on vacation and Busta Rhymes dropped a solo Dragon joint without him. It’s all love though. Watch the video to see how it went down int he studio. This is not really a “mixtape” although they call it that. It’s a FREE ALBUM, you can download here, for Christmas. Happy Holidays! I’m not going to run down special guests who appear on the album. That’s irrelevant. It’s a free Busta Rhymes album. Go grab it quickly!

MCMI presents: the marXman ‘DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’ [Free Download)

MCMIreport.com & MCMI Records presents:

MarXman Logo‘DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’

MCMI releases hip hop project with the MarXman and announces Fall indie tour of Western Europe.

mxm-dofp-cover-front570webThe 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.

mxm-dofp-cover-back570web

The album commences with a sound byte from the classic cartoon X-men: The Animated Series, depicting an apocalyptic era following the “assassination of the90s.” 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.

marXman

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
