PMB is back with the Hip Hop Prospect and this has been a great journey(and alot of work). Being a fan of hip hop it’s great hearing and seeing the birth of stars and yes some of our prospects will be stars. We are now working on a compilation mixtape to feature all of the Prospects and to put up on the blog for free download to end the year off right, so look out for that. Now we’re going back to east coast this month which in fact we stayed in the East coast and back to New Jersey, I think we went there before but I digress, remember what I said on the CineMax Millz blog well, someone finally steps up and he goes by the name of MCMF.
MCMF which stands for Emcee Marc Fantano (MCMF). Although it’s simple, MCMF feels it projects an authenticity to himself through my music. reside in Hackettstown, New Jersey. I respect this man’s hustle, fuck a label, he can make it on his own, which only the very talented can do and I think MCMF can seriously do that. I asked MCMF what got him into hip hop he replied.
“I’ve been a fan of hip-hop since I purchased my first cassette tape when I was in second grade (Single for Dre Day by Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg). I started as an emcee when I was 15, mostly just freestyling at parties. I started writing and producing music when I was a sophmore in college at 18.”
I forgot he also produces as well, can you say the One Man Band. I got his album “Make U Believe” available on Itunes and I won’t say much because, I have an album review coming on that so you’ll have to wait to hear my verdict on his album tomorrow. But MCMF has a great flow and a old skool vibe about him and I love the 90’s era music period, so his style already draws me into his music. Which thats leds to me asking him about the current state of Hip Hop which he answered;
“I view it in a stale state. Hip-Hop is more and more about what singles can be marketed best opposed to the quality of a full length album. There is still many out there that I enjoy thoroughly that are defying this new age of Hip-Hop. Joell Ortiz currently stands out the most in my mind.”
Even slid in a shout out to Joell which I find his kinda style similar to, just the flow style. It’s hard for me to say much because, it’s based on his Album and I got a review on that coming and I don’t want to be a rerun so I’ll leave you with his contacts, follow him on twitter @mrmcmf and like him on twitter http://www.facebook.com/mrmcmf and http://www.facebook.com/dubgmusic and I leave you with MCMF track “These Bars Can’t Hold Me” and let me just say I’m in love with this track and she bettter not cheat me ha! See you next month with just one Emcee left, wow… what a year!
