Rahiem Drinkwater was on hand at “Wreck the Halls”, the GrindTime East Coast division battles at Public Assembly in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, so of course you know PH asked him to be a celbrity judge, along with his cousin, Rob N. Banks. Shout out to Poison Pen, Sara Kana, Team Homi and all the MC’s there that night.
Super producer !LLMIND has just released an instrumental album on Nature Sounds that not only gives you 21 incredible new tracks but he also goes so far as to give you aspiring beat smiths the audio stems so you can try and duplicate his greatness with his own sounds!! (you cant btw.) And for good measure he throws in the Fortilive gem “Gimme”
!LLMIND is one of the best and hardest working producers I know, just this year he’s released “Live from the tape deck” with SKYZOO, a Fortilive album with his Hawaiian crew called “I vs. I” aaaand the “Outside the lines EP” with far out there band Smokey Robotic! Not to mention the work he’s been putting in on PH‘s MCMI records debut “The revenge of Radames“, the B.L.A.P.S mixtape vol.5 &, producer showcase series and countless other projects!!! Does this man even sleep!??!?!?
Here are the first two “Behind The Curtain” videos where !LLMIND discusses the project after the jump (more…)
I met up with MURS recently, at a show at Public Assembly, in Brooklyn. Me and the homie PH blessed him with some official MCMI Â APPAREL shirts and we chatted for a few. He’s a cool guy, and he definitely takes his music seriously, plus, he has something to say. We were chillin’ that night, but we definitely will hook up with him for a full Interview in the near future.
Meanwhile, here is the title track/video of the new six song EPÂ Varsity Blues 2, now available onÂ iTunes.Â The video was directed byÂ Darryl Richardson. Production by Aesop Rock. The original Varsity Blues came out in 2002. Besides Aesop, this oneÂ has production by Terrace Martin, Issue, Foundnation, Karl Berringer, andÂ Droop-E.
