MCMI REPORT

Bad Seed and Nottz are back with a collaborative album called No Way In Hell and the first single Sunday Morning ft DJ Total Eclipse has just hit the airwaves.

Bad Seed first teamed up with Nottz  to produce two Hip Hop classics in 1999 “For the Kids” and “Uhhnnh”, both of which did incredible sales for indie releases, the latter making it to Funk Flex 60 Minutes of Funk Vol IV: The Mixtape. After signing to a major (Warner) that then shelved their entire Hip Hop roster, Seed was sour to the industry for awhile, but released several notable independent albums over the years, remaining so-called “underground“, although some records such as Yankee Fitted featuring Mims and Talib Kweli off the album Intelligently Ignant, bubbled up slightly into the mainstream consciousness.

In 2016, Seed dropped Coreyography, which was set to be his last album, his farewell tour. After trying some acting, writing and directing, I think Seed was done with rap, perhaps feeling there was no way in hell he was going to drop another album. But the lead single “Belt Off” reunited Corey with Nottz and the results were amazing (video). The rekindling of their professional relationship led to this new producer/MC project No Way in Hell by SEED X NOTTZ.

For those unfamiliar with the Grammy Award winning producer’s work, Nottz has produced tracks for Busta Rhymes, the Notorious B.I.G, Fat Joe, Rah Digga, M.O.P, Exhibit, Snoop Dogg, Scarface, 50 Cent Method Man, Ghostface, Drake and Ne-yo just to name a few. He also works with more independent artists such as Krumbsnatcha, Apathy, Evidence and Sean Price. For his full discography, go here.

The first single off the project is “Sunday Morning” available now on Bandcamp. The Bad Seed hasn’t lost a step and Nottz beats are always bangin’ so we know this album is going to be tough!!

Let us know what you think of the track and the video and let us know, are you as amped as we are to hear this Seed X Nottz project? Also, what is your favorite Bad Seed or Nottz record? See you in the comments. Enjoy.

MCMI REPORT: Talib Kweli - Heads Up Eyes Open ft. Rick Ross & Yummy

This just dropped on Javotti Media / 3D and it’s really dope. Talib Kweli and Rick Ross is not a duo you would expect to hear together on a record which makes you want to hear what they will each do on the song. I remember Yummy Bingham from one of my favorite De La Soul songs, Much More. Her hi-pitched vocals are infectious on this one as well. Video directed by SmithHouse, Talib Kweli had this to say about where the title and concept for the song came from 

“When I was on Rawkus, there was a guy working there named Headqcouterz, a good friend of DJ Premier, who’s spirit was so beautiful that he would brighten any room he would enter. He lost his life years ago, but there was one thing he used to say each and every time he said goodbye – Heads Up, Eyes Open. This phrase has stuck with me and become a guide thru my career and life. Produced by J. Rhodes, Heads Up, Eyes Open is a song dedicated to the memory of Headqcourterz. It is a song about how faith informs the way an artist moves and creates. It was a pleasure to be joined by Rick Ross and Yummy Bingham, two of my favorite artists.” – Talib Kweli

The song is from Talib Kweli’s upcoming album ‘Radio Silence’, which drops November 17. Pre-order the album now: http://smarturl.it/RadioSilence

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!

The Detroit Lyricists show Brotherly Love

Straight out of Detroit, lyrical wordsmith Kid Vishis teams up with his brother, Royce 5’9 (from Slaughterhouse and Prhyme).Kid Vishus ft Royce the 5’9 – Go Off, produced by Foulmouth, is the second single off of Vishis’ release “The Purge” that dropped two weeks ago on 22 Entertainment/Orchard/Sony.

Kid Vishus ft Royce the 5'9 - Go Off

Fans of MCMI might remember when Vishis did a collab with PH on his 2011 release This Ain’t What You Want, also featuring Marv Won, off his album Know The Ledge. As you can see, Kid Vishis is definitely a force of his own to be reckoned with, all Royce aside. Nevertheless, it’s dope to get a brotherly collab from the two from time to time, the ‘Big Daddy Kane, Lil Daddy Shane overdoers’, if you get my reference.

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.)

Pre-orders for The Past Is Always Present In The Future – iTunes & Bandcamp
