LYRICS:

Aesop Rock: Roses for the OG MF, where were you when Bob dropped the OG Deadbent? I was over Tony’s on some “Whoa is that? No, is that…? Yes it’s Zev Love X, sounding reckless” I took it to the head and heart You were back as Metal Face and threatening my pearl white Acura from the 2nd bar Barfing up a master class in charismatic disrespect And trash talk, mask on, mac and cheese Timberlands Sold the first Apple Seed cd’s at your Brownies show While you were saying “something to remember like the Alamo” I was yelling every word and never late And when you finally played “Hey!” I felt the venue levitate Ask anyone, L.I. to upstate Come to learn it’s only phase 1 of the flood gates DOOM stay gluing true grit to the bass line And made himself a hero and a villain at the same time Back in ‘94 you had that line about the Nikes on the wire I’d always see these Nikes on the wire when I was driving through a neighborhood somebody said you stayed in Convinced I’d found the actual inspiration For the record I was not even close to the right neighborhood Even when the heart is pure, the brain is mush Thank you for the stories, and the fuck you to the normies Brewin said we lost our Jordan, I would sprinkle in some Vorhees and agree Breeze I have this memory of me and you Rapping Meat Grinder to each other at a BBQ in BK Got the same memory with a couple other people too Trading DOOM lines, that’s what people do You were always kind to me in person I tried to play it cool but I was always kinda nervous 30 summers a guide in the muddy waters To the man with many names: I hope you’re somewhere with your brother, yea

Homeboy Sandman: Supervillain tho Illin tho Chopping records that my parents listened to DOOM was on a mission to remind you that the magic is what matters But where’d he find that banter? Where’d he find them patterns? He ain’t had no manners My favorite villain is The Drop off Viktor Vaughn But every time I hear the Great Day intro I’ma sing along And cats be sleeping on the GMO’s them lessons on point We share a brother in Kuri from the ? joint Supervillain in the function then his peoples never far Thanks for introducing us to John Robinson and Stahhr And a era full of rarified jewels And making use of airtime for making bad hairlines cool Being crazy takes guts Monsta Island Czars had a rep for being nuts Extra special words Scent of special herbs still lingers My pantheon is Bird and Mingus, Prince and Metal Fingers Larger than life, he had his own Nikes I’m a Clearweather brand dude but dag DOOM MM FOOD was the anagram Fresh put me on I proceed to put on anyone that was famalam And Every particle genuine article Okay you stiffed a few promoters Who thought they booked the man under the mask but they could never tell for certain Walking the walk, while talking in third person He wore a mask so the charge won’t grab On a rooftop with a large stone slab Seen where the industry was going and Had the gonads To go “nah” Thanks A bar is not a measure Of music DOOM was doing it’s a unit a buried treasure No one ever done it better So I’ma keep my computer on caps lock forever.

MCMI REPORT: NEMS – Love Love [Official Video]

MCMI REPORT: NEMS - Love Love [Official Video]

NEMS drops an official video for “Love Love” featuring Zandra Kaya aka Zee Funk; an unreleased record from the acclaimed “Gorilla Monsoon” album, which also features the underground favorite “Gahbage“, the slice of reality “Heavy Metal” and the heartfelt “Kings“.

This track is a parody/remake of Mase’s “Tell Me What You Want From Me” and proves the FYL general and battle rap heavyweight can also spit game to the ladies and put together a song which approaches commercial sensibilities (use of eye candy, humor, clever quote from Ghostface off “Cream”). But don’t be fooled by the title and Mos Def like crooning of “Love Love” in the outro, NEMS is a foul-mouthed thug and this song is not to be played when the kids are in the car!

If you like the more vulnerable side of NEMS, check out this other joint off his mixtape Skinny Nems, called Light One. NEMS also has an dope collab project with ILL BILL called GORILLA TWINS, available on every platform.

ROYCE 5’9 Leads Us Out of the Cave With Album “The ALLEGORY”

ROYCE 5’9 drops his much anticipated album ALLEGORY, a 22 track album, featuring the likes of T.I., CyHi the Prynce, Sy Ari da Kid, White Gold, DJ Premier, Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine, Benny the Butcher, G Perico and Vince Staples, which is available now on all streaming and downloadable platforms. You can find them all here.

Royce da 5’9 – America (Layers)

Also on the album, but not listed in the credits, is longtime friend and Bad meets Evil collaborator Eminem, who drops a 2 minute rant on a skit about how black music has been historically coopted by white artists over the years, but how in current times, black kids grow up listening to white artists and white kids grow up listening to black artists.

After the amazing work he put in with Slaughterhouse (still mad their last album never come out!) his ground breaking Book of Ryan album, his PRyhme collabo with DJ Premier and now this, I am ready to cop any project Royce drops or is on from now ’til infinity. With his steady 20+ year grind, creating good music, remaining lyrical in a dumbed down universe and still managing to maintain relevance 5’9 is definitely leading the youth out of the cave and into the sun. The question is, will they follow, or hate on anything that threatens their way of life?

MCMI REPORT: FOR ME – MIC HANDZ (official Video)

MIC HANDZ has been going through a lot this past year or two. From the loss of loved ones, to his own health struggles, starting dialysis and looking for a kidney transplant, he has been going through changes physically, mentally and spiritually and that has to come out in the music.  “FOR ME”, a delayed visual off of the 2017 release HELL ON MY BACK: HEAVEN IN MY WAKE, was written as therapy. According to the Flatbush based MC, producer, graphic artist, video director and tour promoter, this song represents

“self-reflection of myself for myself ”  “I believe going public and being transparent is key to growth.”

MCMI REPORT: FOR ME - MIC HANDZ (official Video)

You wont find cliched boasting about lyrical prowess on this song. Produced by the German underground producers DICHTER 2 PRODUCTIONS, the musical soundtrack, introspective bars and passionate delivery, platformed by a LAST AMERICAN BBOY supplied visual in the heart of Brooklyn, is a release from pain by creating art through music, in the vein of Muddy Waters and the Blues tradition. The visuals, with assistance from Taz , Jana, Wendy, Uncle Freddy , Nayarah, Parnia and ROCKNESS MONSTA, help set the mood and fill in parts of the story untold by Handz’ documentary lyrics.

If you missed the album when it dropped, it’s not too late.

SEAN PRICE (RIP) & SMALL PROFESSOR’S COLLAB LP, ’86 Witness

SEAN PRICE (RIP) & SMALL PROFESSOR'S COLLAB LP, '86 Witness

SEAN PRICE (RIP) & SMALL PROFESSOR’S COLLAB LP, ’86 Witness

SEAN PRICE (RIP) & SMALL PROFESSOR’S COLLAB LP, ’86 Witness is a collaborative album from the late Sean Price and producer Small Professor. Check out the first single, “John Gotti”. Although it features AG Da CoronerGuilty Simpson, and Your Old Droog, hometown hero Sean P sets it off right away as soon as the record drops.

Of course everyone on the track spits impressive bars (or I wouldn’t have thrown it up) The single is an instant download with iTunes pre-order for 86 Witness, which is also available now for pre-order in a limited magenta/black swirl vinylCD with bonus content, and bundle package equipped with a “Refrigerator P” jersey-style T-shirt.

“Lyrically, P pays homage to the year 1986 with clever bars boasting slick, pop culture-referencing wordplay. He big-ups the Bears’ Super Bowl XX win on “Refrigerator P”; references Herbie Hancock’s time-honored Round Midnight OST on “Midnight Rounds”; shows love to Just Ice’s “Latoya” on the Quelle Chris-featured “Latoya Jackson”; and dedicates track six to John Gotti with the help of AG Da Coroner, Guilty Simpson and Your Old Droog.

Throughout the rest of the album, P spits slick nods to Boogaloo Shrimp, Joe Joe Dancer, Sinbad, and other characters central to that era. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Ruckus project without mentions of the man who inspired his ‘Mic Tyson’ alias. And sure enough, sound bytes from the heavyweight bruiser appear on closer, “Word to Mother.”” – Press Release

The album, which includes additional guest features from Rock, Quelle Chris, Illa Ghee, Elucid, Caste, Zilla Rocca, Reef the Lost Cauze, DJ Revolution and more is due out Feb 08 as a dual-label release via Coalmine Records and Duck Down Music.

SEAN PRICE (RIP) & SMALL PROFESSOR’S COLLAB LP, ’86 Witness

According to the official Press Release,

86 Witness is a testament to both Hip-Hop’s Golden Era, and the unbelievable talents of Sean Price, one of the genre’s biggest and best voices who was taken from us far, far too soon. His hilarious, tack-sharp rhymes are complemented by the imaginative and dusty production of Philly’s Small Professor, who may just be rap’s best kept secret.”

Tracklist:

  • 01. Bear Witness (Intro) [feat. DJ Revolution] 
  • 02. Refrigerator P (feat. Rockness Monstah & DJ Revolution) 
  • 03. Latoya Jackson (feat. Quelle Chris & DJ Revolution) 
  • 04. Midnight Rounds (feat. Elucid & Castle) 
  • 05. P’s Theme (Interlude) 
  • 06. John Gotti (feat. AG Da Coroner, Guilty Simpson & Your Old Droog) 
  • 07. Think About It (feat. Illa Ghee, Rockness Monstah & DJ Revolution) 
  • 08. Word to Mother (feat. DJ Revolution) 
  • 09. John Gotti (feat. Reef the Lost Cauze, Curly Castro & Zilla Rocca) [Philly Blunt Remix] 
  • 10. Refrigerator P (feat. Rob Kelly) [Peaky Blinders Remix]

Younger heads will appreciate Sean’s classic witty punchlines, wordplay and no-holds-barred hip hop ethic of brutal honesty, at times self-depreciating and always rugged, yet humorous. Veteran’s closer to the God’s age will delight in 80’s references and celebrated nomenclature. Every Hip Hop head will appreciate music that knocks. Salute Sean Price! Sean lives on! #RIP
