DJ GMS: The LOVE IS Mixtape (Stream + Download)

THE LOVE IS MIXTAPE

Last year MCMI Records dropped the HYDRA song “Love Is …” right before Valentine’s Day. The song “Love Is …”, produced by Keith “WildChild” Middleton, is a celebration of the Love of Hip Hop and a challenge to any rappers who do this for the money, without a true Love for the art.

Now in 2014, on Valentine’s Day, we present yo you … “The LOVE IS Mixtape”, mixed by DJ GMS, with a special intro from LR Blitzkrieg and testimonials from Masta Ace, Torae, Sha Stimuli, PackFM, Substantial, Chordz Cordero, Rich Medina, DP One, WildChild and many more, talking about what Hip Hop means to them.

P.T.A: Busta Rhymes + L.O.N.S (Reunion) @ BKHHF


Shout out to BrooklynBodega for another great Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival this year. BKHHF #8 was a smashing success all week and the grand finale on Saturday at Pier 3 in Brooklyn was phenomenal. We had an MCMI Booth, so we were technically working, but at the same time we are huge Busta Rhymes fans who grew up listening to Leaders of the New School and watched Busta’s solo career blossom after that. GMS & PackFM @ BKHHF 2012There were about 2,000 fans in front of the stage (from the video it could be at a backyard barbeque, cause it’s so close up), hands in the air the entire time L.O.N.S was onstage. I mean, Busta was ripping his solo material as you would expect him to. Bucktown crowd favorites Smif N Wesson and Buckshot did How Many MC’s and Sound Boy Burial to the people’s delight. Lil Fame of M.O.P also brought mad energy to the stage when they performed the classic Ante Up and Ante Up Remix. Those are hometown heros. Reek Da Villain did his thing as well. Everyone went wild when Busta brought out the man who “started all this type of pimpin’” (referring to the Fort Knox amount of gold he had around his neck), the legendary Slick Rick (who came out with more gold on that Busta). I’m going to post those performances later. But when Charlie Brown and Dinco D  hit the stage and rocked that was truly incredible.

“This is the first time in 19 years … me and Dinco … me and C Boogie Brown … my whole shit started with these two dudes right here. We wrote every song that y’all fell in love with us for in Brown’s crib adn Dinco’s crib…”

You can hear on the video that the person in charge of the venue and the stage is trying to shut the show down. Hear him saying “3 minutes … 3 minutes“? Busta warned him “Don’t violate …”

After they rocked P.T.A, they did Scenario (click for video) in entirety, with ATCQ (including Pfife), which clearly went over 3 minutes (the show was already 20 minutes overtime). Finally the soundcrew faded Busta’s mic when he tried to squeeze in an extra couple of joints after that. Even once his mic was off, he did the “Arab Money” dance while the crowd sang the lyrics. But it didn’t matter. The main event – Leaders of the New School reunion – had taken place, and we were all there to witness a moment in Hip Hop history.
