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.
1. NOÂ TOUCHING – No physical touching or visual threats. Cases in point:
Math Hoffa Vs. Dose
When you do this …
This is what happens!!!
Basically Math asked Dose to step back, because he was to close to his face. Dose did not adhere to the 6 foot and change NYB Giant, his hat brim hit Math in the nose, so Math returned the favor, but with his fists. Let this be a lesson Kiddies, talk all the tough shit you want to talk, but at the end of the day you are gonna end up on the wrong side of an ass whoopin’ if you get too close to someone, or flash a pistol like this next guy did!
The Plague is a crew of Hip Hop artists, formed in the late 90’s, whose membership has changed over the years.

The Plague recently suffered the loss of one of their founders, PH aka Pumpkinhead aka Robert Diaz, who passed away due to medical complications on June 9th, 2015. PH was loved throughout the underground hip hop community, the battle rap scene and by friends and fans throughout he world. His passing was reported by major news and music outlets, including CNN, TIME, RollingStone, Billboard, Pix11, NYDailyNews, MTV, BET and every Hip Hop and battle rap website. #RIPPH was a trending topic on Facebook & Twitter in the following 24hours. Here are eulogies from MCMI & QN5.
The crew is currently working on a PH Tribute EP/Album to be released jointly through all of their labels and promoted by the entire collective, proceeds of which will be a future revenue stream for PH’s family. Saddened by the loss, the crew is nonetheless inspired and motivated to produce the best work possible, in the name of their fallen brother in arms.
