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!

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

PACKFM: LEGENDARY - Prod x UG (P9D) of Cella Dwellas [Music Video]

It’s been a few years since PACKFM has dropped any new music. The last thing I can recall is the single “Want What’s Mine” in 2011 and then the DOMINION meets HYDRA track “TWELVE“, which dropped 12/12/12. After that, there was the promise of “The Human Highlight Reel” coming in 2012 … … never happened. Well, this is not that, but it is a brand new song, with a video. It’s not from a specific project. It’s a Birthday present to his fans and to himself. See Pack is doing a 40th Birthday Party performance at DROM NYC tonight and so it was a perfect time for the QN5 MC to remind the world that he does this.

Produced by UG P9D (from CellaDwellas), recorded and mixed at Stonebrown Studios, the joint will definitely nod your head. It makes you want to rhyme, which is exactly why Pack returned after his long hiatus.

This track is a result of me just wanting to rhyme. Period. I don’t care about “views” or “likes” or blog posts, because none of those things have anything to do with how we as MC’s put words together. To me that is what makes what we do art. – PACKFM

Pack actually had this entire video shot by his wife using his phone, directed and edited it himself. If you want to catch him in a rare live performance, come to his 40th Birthday Celebration, tonight at Drom. These shows only come once a year. There will be a few surprise guests from MCMI, The Plague, Team Homi and UGHH in the building.

PackFM’s 40th Birthday Celebration June 16th – 8pm – 10:30pm DROM NYC

Substantial: Black Of All Trades (V2) – NPR Tiny Desk Submission [Video]

Substantial: Black Of All Trades (V2) – [NPR Tiny Desk Submission Video]

Substantial: Black Of All Trades points to the fact that there many Black Americans go unrecognized for their numerous talents and achievements. Take Substantial for example, he raps, yes, but he also is a visual artist, both with pencils and brushes and as a graphic artist with the computer. He is also an educator and an A&R at his label. And he does all of those things WELL! Black of All Trades.

In the single’s liner notes on BandCamp, Substantial includes a quote from Hill Harper, an American film, television and stage actor, and author, who says

“I believe we all have the capacity to be masters of many things, and there’s nothing that we can’t do. You can be a great actor and also be a great writer. There’s so many things that all of us have the capacity to do. But somehow, life tries to convince us that we’d be lucky to do even one thing well, and I disagree.” ― Hill Harper

The video, featuring DJ JAV is a submission for NPR’s Tiny Desk contest. It was filmed and edited by CAMCAMTV, at Substantial’s desk at Oxon Hill Middle School where he works with 12 to 14 year olds as a Student Advocate and teaches music production afterschool.

The song, produced by THE OTHER GUYS, is off the recently released LP, THE PAST IS ALWAYS PRESENT IN THE FUTUREavailable on COMPACT DISC, & CASSETTE as well as digital download from
