Everyday People :: Moodie Black Drop ‘No Mames’ Single In Anticipation Of ‘FUZZ’

With each passing album, Moodie Black has perfected the rollout for the independent, DIY artist.  KDEATH maintains a proper level of profile on social media, interacting with the masses while she and Sean toil away in the studio.  As the projects come together, seeds of anticipation are woven into the normal flow of conversation.  As it starts to hit the 30-45 day mark, starts dropping visuals that open further avenues of anticipation and discussion, as the succinct ideas are intriguing enough to raise wondrous thoughts of how they will fit into the bigger picture.  After dropping the stellar Jesus Bound lead single recently, Moodie Black has come with the two of the one-two punch with No Mames, a very personal and artistic statement from that scratches the surface of her day to day experience of trying to exist as a trans, gender-fluid woman in an uptight, judgemental society.  FUZZ drops this upcoming Friday, and after these tastes, I’m certainly ready to hear the full project.  Like, comment and share the video, and keep your eyes on Moodie Black for the bomb drop that FUZZ will be.

Upward Movement :: Moodie Black Preps ‘Fuzz’ Release With ‘Jesus Bound’ Video Premier on Dead End Hip Hop

Moodie Black is about to knock the dust off of 2020, and if Jesus Bound (the first single from their upcoming Fake Four release Fuzz) is any indication, their going to do it with a sense of urgency and immediacy that the era has not only created, but demands.  K is no stranger to confrontation, and with hip-hop already being a firestorm of a breeding ground for transforming turmoil into art, it comes as no surprise to me that Jesus Bound plays as her unapologetic clapback to all the real-life and social media misgendering and misidentification of her art.  Add to that her penchant for stark and striking visuals, and it makes sense that Dead End Hip Hop would jump at the opportunity to premier the video, hopefully allowing avenues of discussion to open up as a result.  I’ll be ready for when Fuzz drops at the end of March, and if you’re smart, you’ll keep your eyes and ears open as well.

Joyful Noise :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Drops Audio-Visual For ‘The Limit Is Mythic’

It feels good starting off 2020 on the right foot.  After a collaborative year with K Death of the iconic duo Moodie Black (a year in which she produced projects for several underground Texas juggernauts), I am happy to announce the release of Panic Ruminations on January 24.  In order to properly support the roll-out, I hooked up with the homie Jeffrey Garcia from the Dream-Atomic camp, and he helped me capture footage for the limit is mythic, the lead single from the upcoming project.  Check it out, leave a like and a comment, share it around so we can get those view counts up, and stay tuned for the release of the full project.

Warning Shot :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Collabs With Moodie Black For ‘The Limit Is Mythic’

Many years ago, I played a show with Moodie Black at the now defunct Triple Crown, and I was blown away by their performance.  Sean‘s love for guitar definitely shone on top of K‘s mind-blowing production, and her performances were powerful and captivating.  Over the years I got to know the duo better, even toured with them, leading to a friendship between and myself.  As made plans to grow Moodie Black and the umbrella moves she was making under Moodhouse, she began to offer deals on production, any many emcees (including myself) jumped on the opportunity.  Cut to present day, and a Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice EP written by myself and produced entirely by K is in the chamber.  The first single, the limit is mythic, is just a small taste of what’s in store, so definitely keep your eyes and ears open for the release of Panic Ruminations in January.

Free Spirit :: Chris Conde Drops ‘Conde Digital’ For Fake Four’s FreeCember

a1089673641_10

For fans of independent hip-hop, December is a chance for Fake Four to bless us all with a gift-giving season known as FreeCember.  This year, the homie Chris Conde sets it off with Conde Digital, a lyrical firestorm produced in entirety by Moodie Black.  The combination of sounds works together, more than likely due to both artists being free spirits that are unafraid of (or possibly unaware of) boundaries or what they represent.  This one won’t cost you anything but time, so definitely take advantage and cop it.  Spread the gift around for others to do the same.  And, above all, support your independent creatives.

More Savage :: Moodie Black Unleashes ‘M B I I I’

a0546203247_10

As cutting edge and ahead of the curve as Moodie Black can be, they have one consistent quality about them : an EP release following each full length release.  These four song gems have always been high-quality work, and I I I keeps the tradition going while pushing the envelope in terms of K‘s vocals (both in the topic choices and the way they are mixed into the track, which is much more up front than normal).  The sense of urgency found in this collection of songs matches the times, but the sound stays fresh and unique, something that us Moodie Black fans have come to love and expect.  I imagine this is the predecessor to another full length project, and I know has been lacing all kinds of folks (myself included) with production, so I know she’ll be on point for whatever Moodie Black has lined up next.  Dig this one and dig it good.

Vice Principles :: MC Homeless Drops Fake Four Debut In The Form Of ‘Sex And Death’ EP

a0635538424_10

When I caught wind of the fact that MC Homeless had a handful of Moodie Black-produced beats and was working on an EP, I knew that we were all in for something memorable.  Over the past year, MC Homeless was showcasing tracks off the project, but there’s something about finally getting to experience a fully realized creation that not even the arresting nature of live performance can capture.  Sex and Death is part examination, part celebration of the trappings that come with the creative spirits.  Sex, depression, drugs and death form the four corners of the framework for Sex and Death, and the instantly iconic artwork is pitch perfect.  Definitely download and share this one around, and if you can, get a hold of the limited edition vinyl, which is equally dope.  Props to Fake Four for putting this one out.
