SUBSTANTIAL – MADE IN MARYLAND (produced by ODDISEE)

SUBSTANTIAL – MADE IN MARYLAND (produced by ODDISEE)

featuring Steph the Sapphic Songstress & DJ Jav

SUBSTANTIAL - MADE IN MARYLAND (produced by ODDISEE)

Plague-member and MCMI affiliate MC Substantial teams up with Mello Music Group’s fellow DMV native, the producer Oddisee for Made In Maryland, the first official single off his long awaited album, The Past Is Always Present In The Future. While Substantial spent a lot of time in New York early in his career , the song is an ode to Maryland, where he once again resides since he returned to his home state several years ago. If you are a Substantial fan then you must know Steph the Sapphic Songstress and DJ Jav, who are frequent collaborators with the prolific MC. Avoiding samples, the scratches and cuts you hear are off of vocals from Joe.D.

When ef@mm member QN5 Music’s Tonedeff heard the song, he was quoted as saying “S#!t so hard, I’m about to move there!” (Sidenote: Stan please make more hard s#!t like this so Tone can move, lol. Thanks.)

MCMI Report: BILLY DANZE - 6 o'clock Briefing
As his term comes to an end some people criticize President Obama for continuing some of the oppressive policies of the previous presidents, for deporting the most amount of immigrants and for not “doing enough” about issues affecting black people in America and a slew of other things. Well, Billy Danze of M.O.P decided to talk about issues going on in the country, the best way he knows how. With a beat and a microphone, he delivers our PRESIDENT his “6 o’clock Briefing” for this single on DCM

MCMI REPORT: DE LA SOUL – DRAWN featuring Little Dragon

DE LA SOUL – DRAWN

De La Soul - Drawn

 

De La emailed me this song in advance of their upcoming release. Rather than talk about the song I’ll just let them tell it.

Hey Y’all,

Here’s another new song for you before the album “AND THE ANONYMOUS NOBODY” comes out on August 26th.  It’s called “Drawn” and it features Little Dragon.  Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon describes the song as, “a dreamy journey about not taking anything for granted in life. About love and being lost in something dangerously good.”

Peace,

De La Soul

One thing I will tell you is that most of the song is a musical intro (a song in itself) from Little Dragon, before the beat finally drops at the 4 minute mark and De la starts rapping. It’s not something that would be traditionally released as a single. When you are 100% independent and in control of your art, you can do that.

To hear more off the album, take a listen and pre-order the album here!

Everything about this story is awesome! First, Marvel has revived the Black Panther comic, with a storyline called “A Nation Under Our Feet”. They then decide to promote the ‘new‘ comic series with a video series, narrated by the comic’s writer, esteemed author and political journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates (the book is drawn by Brian Stelfreeze. For the first two videos, Marvel enlisted Prodigy of Mobb Deep and Mark the Beast, and Run the Jewels.
