La Bamba – The Bad Seed & LR Blitzkrieg (the6ixers) is the first single/video off The6ixers EP on 6th Man Entertainment / MCMI Records. The song, produced by Grammy nominated producer Nottz, dropped a week ago, but now comes the video, a short film animated by Adesoji Ademola, who did the video for MCMI’s “UNICORNS” by LEVELS band a year ago.
The two Plague brothers TheBad Seed and LR Blitzkrieg were inspired by their brother Robert PH Diaz (listed as executive producer) and the fact that they share the same birthday – February 6th.
With cuts by DJ Eclipse, the song – powered by an eargasmic sample and signature Nottz drums and bass – is an appetizer of Spanish soulfood and an entree of pure Hip Hop. The video explains the concept of the EP, a story of two assassins for hire, ready to make any rappers disappear. While there are some interesting concept songs on the project, the lyrics on this one are full of braggadocio and tough talk, setting the tone. Anyone disrespecting – or just in the way – is getting eliminated.
The video, a parodic nod to Tarrentino’s Pulp Fiction, was the brainchild of LR Blitzkrieg, who also did all the graphics, EP and song covers, digital graphics being one of his many talents. (#TheMediaBlitz)
The two Plague brothers Bad Seed and LR Blitzkrieg came together inspired by their brother Robert PH Diaz (listed as executive producer of the EP) and by the fact that they share the same birthday with each other, February 6th.
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?
The Book of Job is a web series, written and produced by Corey Pierson aka The Bad Seed (aka @NiggalisCage) and and directed by Corey Pierson and Arlene Brathwaite. It tells the story of a young rapper who continues to praise God no matter what tragedies befall him in his career or personal life, while the Devil (played by Corey Pierson), tries to corrupt him, take everything away from him and get him to denounce God. Who will win in this epic struggle between good and evil, God and the Devil? We will have to wait for future episodes to find out, but Episode 1 is highly entertaining. Mims as the Lord and Justin Dinkins as Job, do a great job so far hooking you in. In only a little over 20 minutes, you are rooting for the characters. Corey Pierson shines in his role as Lou Siffer, with his pimp hair and red jackets. There is a great chemistry between him and Mims in scenes where the supreme being and ruler of hell get together and make their deals.
What do you all think? Does Job have what it takes to remain committed to his faith, even with “Lou Siffer” putting potholes in his lawn? Who are you rooting for, Job or the Devil? Let us know in the comments.
