New EP The 6iXers by The Bad Seed & LR Blitzkrieg produced entirely by Grammy nominated hip hop producer Nottz
Prod by NOTTZ, this collection of heatrocks is super Boom Bap, has the sonic qualities that got it played on DJ’s from Statik Selectah’s #SHOWOFFRADIO, to DJ Premier’s #LiveFromtheHeadquarters, to DJ Eclipse & DJ Riz‘ #RapIsOuttaControl even before it dropped, with the attitude of protesters turned rioters, who’ve had enough of this 2020 bullshit.
Got a problem you need solved? someone you need to make “disappear”? call The 6iXers!
The 6ixers has equal parts tough talk, humor, hardcore realism, social commentary and enough lyricism to satisfy any connoisseur of fine Hip Hop. The longtime friends and members of The Plague, are also united by their brotherhood with the late great underground king Robert PUMPKINHEAD “PH” Diaz, plus share the same birthday (February 6), which inspired the name, so you might say it was fate. The two have been on Plague tracks together in the past, but have wanted to do a project like this for years.
Speaking of Pumpkinhead, he is featured on the infectious “Got Your 6ix”, while the 6ixers are joined by Planet Asia on the neck-breaking track “Riot Music”. Cuts by Tone Spliff and DJ Eclipse are the icing on the cake.
And the beats? … Oh yeah, they BANG!! Super Producer NOTTZ put his foot all the way in this one. I have my favorites, but honestly, you can rock this 8-track EP straight through (6 songs, 2 skits), without touching the skip button.
If you are familiar with Nottz work – “Home Sweet Home” (Lord Have Mercy/M.O.P), “Dangerous MC’s” (Notorious B.I.G/Busta Rhymes), “W.O.L.V.E.S.” (Krumbsnatcha/M.O.P.), “Say Dat Then” (Slaughterhouse), and more recently several tracks off of Busta Rhymes ELE 2, including “Slow Flow” (with Ol’ Dirty Bastard) and “Look Over Your Shoulder” (ft Kendrick Lamar), just to name a few – then you are going to call this “CLASSIC Nottz!” Discog: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nottz_production_discography)
I personally was introduced to Nottz when he and The Bad Seed first collaborated on the songs “Uhhnnh” and “For The Kids”. If you want to do your homework, look those classics up. Nottz’ track record since then is impressive, but it’s nice to see he still puts in work with independent artists. He even circled back around and hooked up with Bad Seed again a couple years ago for “No Way In Hell”.
Fast forward to 2020 and this project is a PROBLEM! Major label or Indie, a great song is a great song and The Bad Seed and LR Blitzkrieg (listen on SPOTIFY) have been putting out classic material on the independent scene for years. Both have dropped music with groups (Hydra, The Plague, OBS) and solo. Seed reps 6th Man Entertainment and Blitzkrieg is co-founder of the MCMI, the label, clothing brand and creators of this actual website!
Both also know how to play supporting roles, from touring with Mims and Miri Ben Ari, to performing and producing music in groups with PH, Jean Grae and others. So when these two friends of 20 years – who just happen to share the same birthday, get together over an album of Nottz beats? … What’d you expect would happen?
