For those who never knew about MCMI RADIO, it was launched Friday June 8th 2012, as part of the 6th Man Radio station (shout outs to Bad Seed), hosted on BlogTalkRadio. our first episode was MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop.

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

After a year of doing the talk show live almost every week, LR Blitzkrieg and myself just couldn’t keep it up. The show took a lot of work, preparing, setting up interviews, getting crates ready. We needed to dedicate more of our time to the record label and to other aspects of MCMI, so we stopped doing the show.

Well, almost three years later – WE ARE BACK, BABY! This time the show will not be live and will not be weekly. It is now hosted on the MCMI YouTube Channel (Subscribe), which has MUCH better sound quality than BlogTalkRadio and will drop from time to time, whenever we have a good interview or something to talk about.

MCMI REPORT: The Return of MCMI RADIO!

All of the previous BlogTalkRadio shows are archived and can be found on MCMIreport.com/radio-archives. That will be considered “Season 1”. The new shows on Youtube are “Season 2”. Some will be mostly audio, with photos and video clips inserted throughout. Others will be full video format. New music and videos will occasionally be featured between segments of talk.

The new shows will be alternately hosted by MCMI’s GMS, LR Blitzkrieg, Keith WildChild Middleton, MrMecc and other artists affiliated with MCMIreport.com and MCMI Records. So, subscribe, listen, like, comment, share and stay tuned!!!

DJ PREMIER & SHOWBIZ discuss MUGSHOT MUSIC [Interview]

showbiz-a-g-mugshot-music
Yes! SHOWBIZ & A.G. are coming out with another album! DJ Premier is assisting with it and I think he is saying he contributed one track, but the production is mostly Show, as it has always been. Throughout the interview we get a sampling of beats. I am assuming these are from the upcoming project (“Mugshit Music”). All of the beats are siiick. To be honest the first time through I couldn’t really listen to the words, I just skipped through checking all the beats. Then I went back and found out what they had to say. This one beat in particular at 0:24 is disgusting. Let’s you know what kind of next sh*! the production is going to be on.

Show & A.G. back again? Yeah, this is something serious. I am really looking forward to this project. The cover art is even ill. Any and all punchline rappers and battle MC’s, just for starters, owe a huge debt to A.G., who is one of the illest, setting the bar high (along with fellow D.I.T.C. member Lord Finesse) for this type of rhyme. At the same time, these brothers cared so much about the music. The beats, scratches and choruses were so important to their success.

The styles the same, but the flow’s updated. The beats are bananas. Just check this one verse from Andre the Giant, after the interview, from a video teaser they did for the song “Here and Now”.
