MCMI Report: Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton – Transitions (Interview)

MCMI’s own Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton (STOMP/HYDRA/ThePLAGUE) gives us an exclusive interview on the set of his video shoot for his song “Feels Good”!

Keith MCMI LogoEven though he is a my brother from another mother and fellow recording artist on MCMI Records, it is hard to catch up with Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton these days!! When he is in New York, he is locked in the studio, creating, recording, mixing almost 24/7. Between back and forth trips to Japan to promote his album, video and photo shoots – the man stays busy! So at a recent video shoot for his song “Feels Good,” off of his upcoming album “TRANSITIONS“, I asked him some questions, to give the fans some info on his music, his life and his new project. Here is a snippet of it. Click “Read More” to go to the full interview.

Follow: GMS | Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton | MCMI #Transitions

GMS: Most people know you from STOMP, the musical, producing and rapping for HYDRA and The PLAGUE, but you are working on this incredible Spoken Word album now, that many people did not even know about. How did that come about?

Keith: I always kept my poetry on the low. It’s private. I had played with blending it with my original music for years with aspirations of completing an album but never went further than the thought. Jan 15th 2008 12:15pm was the car wreck that became the game changer. From my Hospital bed I vowed to complete my album and live my life to the fullest! Thank Goodness for the second chance.

GMS: This album is being simultaneously released in the US and overseas in Japan. You’ve been getting a lot of support from Japanese radio and been doing performances in Japan. How did you develop your Japanese audience?

Keith: A great friend of mine / manager in Japan, Ayumi Hoshikawa, has been instrumental in introducing me to radio stations, musicians, venues, festivals and just good people in general. She’s awesome.

GMS: Having been an MC and cast member of STOMP for many years, you are no stranger to the stage or the mic, but this time you are performing your poetry. Does it feel different? How does that compare with your past experiences?

Keith: It’s more frightening because in STOMP there are no words and it’s an ensemble. Now it’s just me sharing my truths. So I am literally exposed and leaving myself open. (more…)

DJ GMS: The LOVE IS Mixtape (Stream + Download)

THE LOVE IS MIXTAPE

Last year MCMI Records dropped the HYDRA song “Love Is …” right before Valentine’s Day. The song “Love Is …”, produced by Keith “WildChild” Middleton, is a celebration of the Love of Hip Hop and a challenge to any rappers who do this for the money, without a true Love for the art.

Now in 2014, on Valentine’s Day, we present yo you … “The LOVE IS Mixtape”, mixed by DJ GMS, with a special intro from LR Blitzkrieg and testimonials from Masta Ace, Torae, Sha Stimuli, PackFM, Substantial, Chordz Cordero, Rich Medina, DP One, WildChild and many more, talking about what Hip Hop means to them.

GMS DJ picThis 80 minute continuous blend of amazing music is a tribute to all the Hip Hop songs that celebrate Love of music, Love of the culture, Love of being in the studio, and Love of making something special for the people!

There are so many great artists on this CD, from The ROOTS, to SLUM VILLAGE, TORAE, MASTA ACE, BUSTA RHYMES, COMMON, MOS DEF, NAS, SCARFACE, ATCQ, ERYKAH BADU, SOUL PURPOSE, PHAROAHE MONCH, SNOOP, Dr. DRE, DE LA SOUL …  the list goes on and on. And of course, HYDRA!

So the next time you are in the mood for some “Love & Hip Hop”, put down the TV remote and put on “The LOVE IS Mixtape” - absolutely, 100% FREE!!! If you want to support, show your Love by coming to an event, copping a Tee or Sweatshirt off MCMIapparel.com, or other music on MCMI Records.

Keith “WildChild” Middleton of ‘Stomp’ Takes Center Stage

Keith Middleton

Okay so you’ve probably heard of STOMP, the International stage show where they act crazy onstage and bang out beats on just about EVERYTHING except a musical instrument (brooms, garbage cans, tubes and buckets are some of their favorites). But you might be wondering why MCMIreport.com is posting an article about one of the longest running cast members of the show, Keith “WildChild” Middleton. Well the answer is simple. This is the same WildChild who is one third of the group HYDRA, co-founder of the underground Hip Hop crew The PLAGUE!

He is also a talented musician, composer, super producer (check the tracks “Twelve” and “Love Is …“, for examples) and my very own “brother from another mother.” (I am actually the friend he is talking about in the piece, who did magic shows for money at age 12 and then ran to the studio to make rap demos.) So, when NewYork.com put up this awesome interview, as one of their “COOL JOBS Q & A” stories, I had to share it with y’all.
