PROXY – LR BLITZKRIEG's Debut Single / Video

Brooklyn emcee LR Blitzkrieg, CO-CEO of MCMI, 1/3 of Hydra and founder of the rap crew The Plague, is here with his first solo release “Proxy.” Produced by Atlanta MC/Producer Ness Lee, Proxy takes you on a journey of living life to the fullest. Through the lens of newfound fame and wealth, Blitz paints a picture of hip hop extravagance and classic fun, with a hook that starts off with a prayer:

“Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
And if I don’t die before I wake
When I wake up we gon’ spend all this cake!”

While he can still draw breath, LR Blitzkrieg is not only going to live each day as if it is his last, he will live it up for those who will never have the chance to. The song is a tribute and prayer for people like Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Philando Castille as well as for Blitz’s lifelong friend and label mate Robert “PH” Diaz, all whose lives were cut short far too soon. Filmed in Las Vegas, in collaboration with HYDRA and friends and represents living your life to the fullest because you never know when your time is up.

PROXY is the first single and video off of LR Blitzkrieg’s debut solo Album Outta Nowhere, which will drop “outta nowhere” sometime soon!

You can download or stream the song from EVERYWHERE music is sold, including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal and Bandcamp. Leave a comment on youtube and let us know what you think of the song, the video and what it represents.

PROXY – LR BLITZKRIEG SINGLE + VIDEO RELEASE PARTY

JOIN US this Friday, October 20th, 2017, as we celebrate MCMI co-founder Rodney “LR BLITZKRIEG” Willie’s debut solo single and video release, of the song PROXY, off his much anticipated album #OuttaNowhere.

For those who don’t know, LR Blitzkrieg has been a part of the New York Hip Hop scene for years as part of the rap trio HYDRA and the legendary crew The PLAGUE. He is the co-founder of MCMI RECORDS, MCMI APPAREL and MCMIreport.com. He was also the best friend of the late great Robert “PH” Diaz (aka Pumpkinhead) and is Godfather to his children.

Having recently lost PH, several family members and other friends within the Hip Hop community (#ripPH, #ripJArch, #ripSeanPrice, #ripMajesty just to name a few), Blitzkrieg got to thinking about those who have left us suddenly, due to unknown health reasons, a tragic accident, or unjustly killed by police, “for no reason at all” and penned this song.

The video was shot in Las Vegas, in collaboration with HYDRA and friends and represents living your life to the fullest because you never know when your time is up. Come party with us on Friday, in #PROXY of all those who can’t be with us, because their life was cut short and help us celebrate life in their memory as well as celebrate this first single PROXY, off of LR Blitzkrieg’s debut solo record Outta Nowhere, which will drop “outta nowhere” sometime soon!

Friday Oct.20th 5:30-8:00 – Join the MCMI team at the release of LR Blitzkrieg‘s first solo single & video “PROXY“, at the best HIP HOP bar in New York city!

R.I.P. Sean Price: Planet Apes + ‘Songs In The Key Of Price’ + Memorial Concert Info

Sean Price header

We are hit this summer with another tragic loss, this time Boot Camp Click and Duck Down Records powerhouse, SEAN PRICE aka Sean P aka Ruk from HELTAH SKELTAH. Our hearts go out to his wife and 3 kids, his rhyme partner Rockness, the whole label and staff, friends and family. Sean was a friend to MCMI and was close friends with PH (Pumpkinhead) who passed away 2 months earlier, so a lot of mutual friends of both of them are left with that “wtf?” feeling, like “what is really going on?” We are losing our people – good people – who were close to us in friendship and who were champions of this thing we call Hip Hop, pushing the culture forward with every rhyme, every album or mixtape, even skits, freestyles and jokes.

Sean Price

But Sean P left us a lot of great music, so we have to celebrate his life, much in the same way as we celebrate PH. For those who want to donate directly to Sean Price wife and kids, you can do that here, but you can also support by purchasing his music. As an independent artist on an independent label (Duck Down), your purchases are guaranteed to support his family, while at the same time bringing you joy, listening to his music.

Sean Price music is like fried chicken, collard greens and mac n cheese. If you love Hip Hop, you can’t get enough of it. He was an inspiration to all of us who do this (from your most underground “backpack” rapper to Jay Z), because he did it for the love of the music. That sounds cliche, but it’s true. Listen to him on the radio, in interviews he skips past all the marketing, the “fans get to know you as a person” stories, and just proclaims, “I just rap. I’m here to rap. I’m the nicest at this, nobody can F— with me. That’s it.” That’s all he cared about, being the best lyricist, the dopest MC, and he maintained that standard up until his last day.

Sean Price bundle package

We are so lucky that Sean Price was actually finished with his next project! They were planning his album release party for “Songs In The Key Of Price”, when he left us so suddenly. You can get the single Sean Price: Planet Apes or the full album, itself or in a package that includes the Songs In The Key of Price CD + digital MP3 download, Sean Price ‘Key’ bottle opener, P! socks, Songs In The Key of Price T-shirt, and RIP! T-shirt. The first 100 orders will receive an autographed copy of the Songs in The Key of Price CD.

Sean Price That's Hard CK shirt 2 copySean Price was there for MCMI many times, when we needed him. He rocked the COUNTY OF KINGS tee-shirt in Pete Rock & Smif N Wessun’s video for “That’s Hard,” (featuring Sean Price and Styles P). He collaborated with PH on Batterin’ Bars, on his album Mic Tyson. He was the first to tell us he wanted to perform at the Pumpkinhead Memorial Tribute Concert. That night, I got word from Royal Flush that Sean could not make it. I knew he wouldn’t have missed that show for the world, so I was a little concerned about if he was okay. Three days later, Sean was called to Paradise. He was 43 years old and survived by his wife and 3 children. #DejaVu all over again.

And so, once again too soon, we have a trending hashtag, numerous articles and radio stations playing tributes to a great lyricist. (Sidebar: Why does it take tragedy for radio to suddenly be filled with great Hip Hop music?)

Several years ago, we through a fundraiser for the Robin Hood Foundation, MCMI Presents Vol. VII, which Sean Price headlined for us, with Pumpkinhead, Hydra, Shabaam Sahdeeq, DJ Evil Dee and some others. Even though neither Sean nor none of us were millionaires, it was all for charity. Sean Price SOB's Flyer MCMI Presents

That’s the type of person he was. When his brother PH called him for the favor, to headline the bill for a good cause, he was there.

Now we are gearing up for the SEAN PRICE MEMORIAL SHOW @ S.O.B’s, August 27th. Tickets available at: tktwb.tw/1PiOwQB. All proceeds will be donated to the family.

RIP Sean Price

Salute Sean Price, one of the nicest and one of the nicest, on the mic and off of it. An MC’s MC. A father, husband and friend to many. We are proud to have heard him utter the words “MCMI, people call me Sean.” R.I.P. Sean Price. Your music and legacy live on forever. #ripSeanP #ripSeanPrice #RestInParadise

PH Memorial Friends & Family

On June 9, 2015 the world lost a valued member of the Hip Hop community, Robert Alan Diaz (September 17, 1975 – June 9, 2015), known by his stage name Pumpkinhead aka PH. We also lost a beloved friend, brother, husband, son and father.

PH in Cap

PH was known as the Underground King in the Hip Hop music biz and on the battle rap scene. He was a Hip Hop music purist, dedicating his life to creating, celebrating and preserving the art form. He was known to be extremely humble, supportive of dozens of movements, wanting to help anyone who he felt was also doing music that was good for the culture. In honor of his legacy we look to unite fans, friends and others to pay their respects to PH.

The theme is white clothing (*optional, of course), since we are CELEBRATING his LIFE and MUSIC, not mourning, with a splash of Orange for PH’s style.

PH BattlingPH grew up in Park Slope, one block from this venue, so the location has a special significance for family and friends. PH was such a loved figure in the community and around the world that his family was flooded with thousands of requests to come to the funeral. Unable to accommodate everyone they decided to keep the services small and relatively private. Regrettably, many people felt left out and needed a place to pay respects to PH.

The Family has love for all and PH’s mom, wife, kids, and other relatives will be in attendance to accept condolences, hugs and fond memories of your times with Robert. All  are welcome in love, respect & solidarity for our brother, MC, Event Promoter, friend & family man, the Underground King.

PH County of Kings Shirt

This memorial event is for the community to come together, connect with friends, speak about PH’s impact on music and on our lives, watch footage of PH’s videos and his Last Interview, and raise money for the memorial fund. Food was donated by Fat Buddha Bar (212 Avenue A, nyc), which was one of PH’s favorite hang outs.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO PH’S FAMILY. Thank you for your continued support.
