MCMI REPORT: Shabaam Sahdeeq drops new album! Guest stars galore!

Okay, I admit that headline was just to grab your attention. It could have read “SHABAAM SAHDEEQ IS BACK WITH A BANGER OF AN ALBUM WITH BEATS THAT ARE CRAZY AND FEATURING PLANET ASIA, MASTA ACE, MILANO CONSTANTINE, RAS KASS, EL GANT, J57, NICK WIZ, EL DA SENSEI & MORE!” True, that’s a little too many words for the title, lol, but it’s accurate!

Timeless: Of The Collection is Shabaam’s first album in 3 years and is the first in a Timeless album series in four or five parts to be released over the next two years. First let’s talk about the beats. Sahdeeq describes them as that

“dirty-sounding SP-1200/MPC sample type ish I love to spit to” 

Producers on the album include J57 (Westside Gunn, Joey Bada$$), Nick Wiz (Rakim, Cella Dwellas), DJ Doom (Blacastan, Nutso), Icerocks (Meyhem Lauren) and Arcitype (Vinnie Paz, Ruste Juxx). The production itself will have you nodding before the rhymes even start. The hooks, many scratch choruses, some spoken, a few sung, are all catchy and keep the song in your head. Among the notable featured MC’s on the album are Planet Asia, Milano Constantine (D.I.T.C), Masta Ace, Ras Kass, El Da Sensei (Artifacts) and El Gant to name a few.

Lyrically? Shabaam is on his A-game. Metaphors, stories of the past, wordplay, realism, battle-raps, it’s all in there. These are not freestyle joints, but well constructed, concept songs that will have you nodding your head in agreement. Whether you have been a fan since the Rawkus days or are a new listener you will be not be disappointed. 

The album is available for stream and immediate purchase via Bandcamp and Audiomack currently and will be available via iTunes and all other digital retailers on January 13th.

Stream/buy Timeless: Of The Collection from the Bandcamp or Stream via Audiomack

MCMI REPORT: MIC HANDZ “STREET REGULATOR” Prod. By RAN REED

Mic HandzMIC HANDZ “STREET REGULATOR PROD. BY  RAN REED

Mic Handz is known in the streets as a part of Boot Camp Click, a Decepticon, Co-CEO of T.H.E.M. Recordings, NOT97fm, and the Writters Block Concert Series. He also rolls with us at MCMI. He was part of the team behind our “Masters of the Underground” showcase and a member of the PH Memorial Tribute Committee. Wearer of many hats, Handz never lets too much time go by without hitting us with some music, his #1 talent and passion.

This time he hits us with STREET REGULATOR produced by RAN REED and mixed by NICK WIZ, off of his forth coming project “HELL ON MY BACK“. The Brooklyn bred spitter speaks on his roll in protecting the integrity of the culture, calling out those that tend to do otherwise. Ran Reed gives  Handz a gritty back drop to work with, as MIC walks comfortably across the dusty banjo and regulates.

Radio DJ’s (and anyone else!) you can download the clean version MP3 for free!

Cella Dwellas – Be True “Video”

I first heard Cella Dwella‘s “Be True” on Bodega Cold Cutz Radio so I went digging online for it (shouts to Joe Bodega). UG and The Tallman kill this beat it’s the same energy as past classic Cella Dwella songs just a bit more fit for the times. I hope they come with more heat like this followed by an album.

Chino XL: N.I.C.E. (Prod. Nick Wiz)

Chino XL 1Wow, Chino XL has not slowed up a bit in the years since he was back to save us all. Nick Wiz was always the man, back in the Shabaam Sahdeeq / Cella Dwellas days. His production has evolved, but still hittin’ hard. CAUTION: These are intricate-triplicate, multi-syllabic rhyme schemes that will fuck your head up if you’re not into that. Not for the weak minded.

This is off Chino’s next project “The RICANstruction: The Black Rosary“.

 

 

SHABAAM SAHDEEQ: First Bars, Jails Bars and White Bars (Interview)

Shabaam Sahdeeq

Props to GasFace on this one. It’s a nice interview and the camera work looks official. You know Shabaam is our homie from way back. We hope to have him up at MCMIreport.com in the near future.

Bars.

You can climb them,

trade them with Em, or see life go by through them. Marcus Vialva did all of the above. Went from being a straight nobody from Flatbush,

to becoming an undergound superhero of the legendary Rawkus saga,

back to being a faceless number, only lower this time.

Bottom of the can. Four years.
