MCMI REPORT: SKULL N TONES – BLAZE

As Skull N Tones get ready to release their new single called Blaze on July 14th, they drop a pre-release music video featuring two female artists. One is a crystal enthusiast (someone who studies crystals and their healing powers within the human body) by the name of “Ms. Lady NYX“. It may seem psychedelic or demonic, but it’s actually spiritually positive. From what I understand, she is cleansing the stones through sage smoke, which is supposed to cleanse the impurities and bad spirits out of the crystals. The art direction and body painting involved was done by “Blessed“.

Is it Hip Hop? … Trap? … EDM? It’s hard to define. It’s a mix, containing attributes of each. Either way its a cool video to look at and the track could bless the dance floor either a rave or a Hip Hop party. Once again Skull N Tones combine visual art, film making and musical production to create dope aesthetics. Enjoy!

Stay blessed!

MCMI REPORT: Mastering with Substantial

MCMI Report: Mastering with Substantial

MCMI’s own GMS dropped in on Substantial at his Maryland studio and they discussed mastering of your song before release of the record. The prolific MC who is part of The Plague collective explained that you can master your songs yourself, if you know what you are doing. As A&R of HIPNOTT Records one of his responsibilities is coaching and mentoring other artists on the label. As an educator he schools young minds on how to achieve their dreams and goals. In this video, he schools me on the settings he uses to get that extra punch out of his mixes.

The song being worked on is Follow the Master, off of The PAST … [EP] which is available right now at IAmSubstantial.com and other digital outlets. All of the songs pack heat. You should definitely download that.

Alterbeats ft Shabaam Sahdeeq – “Stop It” (Official Video)


Shabaam Sahdeeq has come along way from the days of Rawkus Records, “5 Star Generals” (ft. Eminem, AL Skillz, etc.), “Arabian Nights” and performing at shows produced and hosted by yours truly (pats self on back, heh heh). The veteran spitter is still cranking out hip hop bangers in the form of mix-tapes, albums and collaborations like this one, over a track by Alterbeats.

Shabaam Sahdeeq Stop It

The visuals for “Stop It”, off of Alterbeats’ new album ‘Class Struggle,’ have Sahdeeq bringing heat to all parts of the County of Kings, representin’ BK to the fullest, to quote a Biggie lyric. The song is basically a showcase of an Alterbeats production while Sahdeeq entertains with above average lyrics, wordplay and delivery. It also features cuts by DJ Tricks. If you had any intention of frontin’ on any of these brothers … Stop It!
