PROXY - LR BLITZKRIEG SINGLE + VIDEO RELEASE PARTY

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!

FAT BUDDHA – 212 Ave A New York, New York 10009

MUSIC – DJ DP ONE (Heavy Hitterz / Turntable Anihilists / The PLAGUE)

Come see the video, have some happy hour drinks, food and vibe to some new music!

PROXY – LR BLITZKRIEG SINGLE + VIDEO RELEASE PARTY

MCMI Report: PUMPKINHEAD – Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 (Re-released!)

MCMI Report: PUMPKINHEAD – Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 (Re-released!)

Back by popular demand, the once out of stock RARE mixtapes are again available!

For years, even before his transition in 2015, many of PUMPKINHEAD’s classic Mixtapes had sold out and were not available as CD’s or digital downloads. Some of the songs can be found here and there on Youtube or a bootleg free downloads website, but several of them are considered RARE and cannot be found anywhere. The few copies that were on ebay for hundreds of dollars have long been sold.

MCMI Report: PUMPKINHEAD - Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 (Re-released!)

At Robert PH Diaz‘ widow’s request, MCMI is excited to put these classic Pumpkinhead mixtapes back into rotation! These collections were curated by Pumpkinhead himself. They contain original songs that never made an album, freestyles and songs recorded over known beats, and songs he would record just for those mixtapes, to hold his fans over between his major releases.

Every couple of weeks, we will be uploading another of PH’s classic mixtapes. We already have My Era: No Skinny Jeans Allowed (which comes with a high quality download of his video for That’s That Sh*t!) and now Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 is available, at PHmcmi.bandcamp.com, where you can also find his latest singles and albums and other past works.

The cover of the Park Slope Renaissance mixtapes Pt 1 & 2 (pt 2 will be released in 2weeks!) were done by MCMI’s LR Blitzkrieg, who will be dropping a solo album #OuttaNowhere, soon, with a song featuring PH and the legendary MOP. The photo is in front of the actual Marlboro sign on the corner bodega of the block PH grew up on, Degraw St & 5th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn, which as you may already know will forever be know as Robert “PH” Diaz Way, thanks to our petition brought to the City Council by Councilman Brad Lander and signed into law by Mayor De Blasio last year.

All proceeds of the mixtapes (and his entire MCMI catalogue) go to PH’s surviving three children, Raiden, Royce & Robbie, so go download some music, listen to some powerful Hip Hop and look to the East for that orange moon over Brooklyn!

The hosts discussed the Presidential debate and also talked with me (GMS) about the new MCMI releases plus video from the late great PH aka Pumpkinhead and Chordz Cordero. Of course I played their game show “What??” where they ask you five questions and you have to answer off the top with no pauses to think. Even though they said I did great I didn’t get any prizes! What’s up with that? Lol. Be sure to listen! Some of my answers might surprise you.

MCMI REPORT: Tribute to Robert PH Diaz at Park Slope’s FABULOUS 5th AVENUE FAIR, 5/15/16

MCMI REPORT: Tribute to Robert PH Diaz at Park Slope’s FABULOUS 5th AVENUE FAIR

MCMI REPORT: Tribute to Robert PH Diaz at Park Slope's FABULOUS 5th AVENUE FAIR

Rapper Wordsworth of EMC pays homage to his friend PH, on the corner of 5th Ave & Robert PH Diaz Way.

The late great rapper Robert “PH” Diaz aka Pumpkinhead, who passed away less than a  year ago from gall-bladder related health problems, represented Park Slope, Brooklyn, all his life. Even when he migrated to Staten Island and New Jersey, he always claimed Park Slope as his home, often shouting out the formerly socio-economically mixed neighborhood, that in recent times has become more and more gentrified, in his music. Then in the early 2000’s PH did a mixtape series (Park Slope Rennaisance Vol. 1 & 2) and had a song called Park Slope on his Beautiful Mind EP (Third Earth Music). PH visited his hometown often, doing shows, parties and charity events at the now closed Southpaw, Voodoo Lounge and SRB (now Analog). And shortly before his ultimate departure, Robert returned to Park Slope one last time, with his two sons, to show them the block “where daddy grew up”.

So it is extremely fitting for that block on De Graw Street, between 4th & 5th Avenue, to be co-named “Robert PH Diaz Way“. And it is also fitting that this year’s FABULOUS 5th AVENUE FAIR in Park Slope, will include a Musical Tribute to PH aka PUMPKINHEAD, on the corner of 3rd St & 5th Avenue, beginning at 1pm. DJ GMS will play a set of PH’s best music, including songs about Park Slope. There will also be guest performances by MCMI Artists and friends, including HYDRA (Keith WildChild Middleton, GMS & LR Blitzkrieg), Chordz Cordero, the MarXman, Qaasim & Khalil Middleton, Mic Handz and Jay Lonzo. The first time Pumpkinhead, GMS, LR Blitzkrieg & Keith WildChild ever performed together was at the FABULOUS 5th AVENUE FAIR in the 90’s when they were just teenagers. The friends would go on to found the crew The Plague and later form the brand MCMI.

MCMI REPORT: Tribute to Robert PH Diaz

The DJ Booth will be set up in front of The Gate on 3rd Street. The party will start off with classic dance music brought to you by Baby Loves Disco, with DJ MIKEY PALMS and Mr. Metaphor from Brooklyn Academy on the mic, from 11:30 – 1pm. The MCMI / PH Tribute set will go from 1 to 3pm, followed by DJ TOP SPEED, who will play classics honoring David Bowie, Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest & Prince, until the fair is over. Classic PH albums & mixtapes, tee shirts, posters and other collectibles will be available behind the DJ booth.

So come out to Park Slope this Sunday, enjoy the fair, check out the music on the corner of 3rd Street and you can also walk down 5th Avenue and take a pic under the newly unveiled street sign on the corner of De Graw St & 5th Ave, as we continue to “Rock Rock On …”.
