“Sport of the Gods” represents the true essence of Hip Hop notably the lyricism and storytelling in Boom Bap’s truest form.  The first track off the album “NY-PHI” can be coined as the next arena size chanted anthem on the East Coast.  The record is also symbolic as Tribeca and Grand represent two different boroughs and two different states, but are bonded in a lyrical brotherhood.

Although the album only dropped a couple of weeks ago, one of the records is already being celebrated in France, Italy, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, and Poland.  “Let’s All Get Funky” is a let loose, fun record that all walks of life can kick back and vibe along with.  It is also going down in the history books for uniting those countries that some leaders have diligently been trying to divide.

Tribeca-Grand have claimed their stance in Hip Hop and hold the highest respect from other major artists, peers, and fans.  “Suicide Rhymer”, another record off the album, bar for bar tells that story with no skits or cockiness, just three and a half minutes of bodied punchlines!

“I put my life on the line, don’t go no patience nor the time, recline lazy boys get left behind”

“Sport of the Gods” undeniably will be another notch for the duo to add to their countless accolades including college and FM radio chart toppers, international tours, and collaborations with other Hip Hop iconic pioneers.

REPPIN4U HIP HOP SHOW @MZATHEINFAMOUS BRINGING HIP HOP BACK TO IT’S ESSENCE

Grant Body-P! is distinguished Journalist, Presenter, Radio Personality, and Host representing the show RePPiN4U on Wild 1 Radio, which airs in Hong Kong, UK, and LA.

“I take pride in the fact that my show only showcases the freshest Hip Hop heat from established and upcoming talent. We also give listeners exclusive interviews and themed shows once a month for listeners to create the playlist inspired by 90’s cable channel, The Box Music Television You Control”. -Grant Body-P!

The show airs every Tuesday, three times a day at 11pm in Hong Kong, UK, and LA on www.wild1radio.com. Fans and listeners can also catch the encore presentation on BDSIR Network www.blogtalkradio.com/thagamev1 every Wednesday at 8pm EST, and 1am in UK.

Many listeners inquire about the name of the show and how Grant came up with it.  He mentioned the show being named after the Black Milk track “RePPiN For U” off the album “Tronic”.

“This dude asked me, “What’s the answer to this hip hop cancer?”
I’m so hungry for real sh!t it feels like I’m fasting
They told me, stop living in the past, get past it
The Golden Era it would never come back
Told him, I hear what he’s saying and I’m tryin’ to be a crutch to hold it up
But I know what I contribute is not enough so…” -Black Milk

Grant recalls how those lyrics resonated with him and it only made sense to name his show RePPiN4U.

“Those words are true and most likely be underrated in the annuls of Hip Hop History. I know that I alone cannot bring the true essence back, it needs a combined effort from fans to DJs to everyone in the industry.”   –    Grant Body-P!

MXNXPXLY FAMILY presents John Jigg$ x Rockwelz x M.O.U.F “MXNXPXLY MAYHEM” The Mixtape, available now for download on all digital music outlets.

The mixtape holds justice to its name and is rousing mayhem across all New York boroughs, and gaining full speed momentum on the east coast.  The trio that makes up the family are New York emcees and producers John Jigg$, Rockwelz, and M.O.U.F.  Each artist exhibits extensive world-wide accolades and solo success in both the Hip Hop scene and music industry.  The trio has a history of collaborating with major artists and Hip Hop legends from EPMD to Wu, so naturally it was only a matter of time before these talented artists, business partners, and friends joined forces to manifest a movement like no other!

Although Jigg$, Rockwelz, and M.O.U.F are notorious for their New York gritty bars and lyrics, they have stepped out of their comfort zone to create a mixtape that all walks of life will collectively take in, relish, and instantly become fans of.  Don’t be mistaken, the trio undeniably comes strong on the album with their gritty trademark, but also has a unique and impressive approach of “the streets meet the clubs”!

CHICAGO’S GROWING ICON PRECISE TALKS HIP HOP, YOUTH, MILLION MAN MARCH, & MORE |@PRECISE_CHI

MJ: MJ here with Rap Music Promo.   I’m excited for tonight’s interview as it’s always a pleasure to chop it up with Chicago’s own Hip Hop Artist, Actor, Motivational Speaker, and Writer Eddy Lamarre, known worldwide as Precise.  Here we are 4 years later and I want to first and foremost thank you for taking time from your industry moves for another interview! Let me also say that 4 years later I still listen to “Ladies Love Mixtapes” on a regular basis!

Precise: Hey MJ, thank you so much for that. I really appreciate you and the fact that you still listen to LLM, means so much.

MJ:  For those who are not familiar you grew up in a Haitian household where music was as natural as eating!  Your father was in a band and played instruments. What was it like for you to watch your father in his element?  Was that the initial spark that ignited your passion and love for music?

Precise: What I remember mostly was being surrounded by music all the time. The camaraderie and creativity always intrigued me. I knew it was something I always wanted to do. Hip-Hop provided the vehicle for me to follow this dream.

MJ:  You mention how you always dreamed about becoming a rapper.  But your first taste of Hip Hop and the culture was deejaying.  How did that evolve?  From there you went on to join a Hip Hop group.  Did you feel that something was missing?  Did you feel the need to experience and emerge into more within the culture? Is that when you decided to begin a solo career?

Precise: As a Chicagoan from the south side of the city House Music was always prevalent. I was always impressed by the blends and one of my friends John Evans who is a master at blending showed me the ropes. As I was learning how to deejay rap was evolving. I could always write and decided to write some rhymes the first verse I wrote was to Aaron Halls “Don’t be afraid”. It was mad wack but it got me started.  I did a few talent shows sharpened my skills then met two of my closest friends Vic “Creole the Individual” Moore and Christopher “Ideal” Rice, may he rest in peace. We formed Nub Earth and gained some notoriety in the city. Soon after life happened, we split and I decided not to put my pen on the shelf. I linked with Tye Hill and DJ Thunder of the Produktionix and we did my song “It’s On Me” and I was able to get back to what I love.

MJ:  You credit KRS-One, Slick Rick, Mos Def, Rakim, among other Hip Hop pioneers and legends for your style of lyricism.  You credit them as your canvas to paint beautiful images through lyrics.  I have followed you since our first interview about 4 years ago.  There are many attributes that classify you as unique and genuine.  The one attribute that stands out the most for me is your dedication to the culture of Hip Hop and not conforming to what media portrays as Hip Hop.  Hip Hop is not a genre of Music; it is a lifestyle.  Conforming to the latest trends that involve zero talent is a lane you refuse to follow.  Talk a little bit about that.

Precise: At some point in the evolution of Hip-Hop so many people would use rap and Hip-Hop interchangeably. I always want to make it clear that Hip-Hop is the culture and rap is one of the ways I express the culture. This culture has spread all over the world and it’s important not to lose sight of how it started and why its origins are important.

MJ:  22 years ago you had a life altering experience that continues to impact your life.  Share your Million Man March enlightenment.   What kind of influence did that historical event have on you as a man and as artist?

Precise: The Million March changed me in so many ways. The main way was it made me realize that I had to grow up and be a better man and a better father. Black men have a tough struggle around the world. To see one million black men gather for change was a transformation and always serves as a reference point in my development. I became more spiritual and self aware. I continue to grow every day.

MJ:  I want to thank you!  Thank you for creating music not for the now, not for popular hits, but for the longevity!  “That Ol’ Boom Bap” is a perfect example of that music.  It is and will remain a timeless classic regardless of release date!  Share with us the story behind that track and how important that track is to you and to your fans, and to the culture of Hip Hop.

Precise: My manager Redell Drakeford linked me with an amazing DJ by the name of Dj Tekwun from New York. He was working on a release and I was fortunate enough to make the cut. “That Ol’ Boom Bap” is an ode to the culture and a nod to what is new. We can’t have one without the other.

MJ:  I want to also take this time to salute you!  Not only are you a phenomenal lyricist, but you are also an Actor, Writer, and Motivational Speaker.  How did those roles come about in your career?

Precise: All of us have a plethora of gifts. These are things that I was inspired to do. In this day and age there really is no excuse not to pursue your dreams. Nothing can stop you. I’ve done some sketch comedy, I write for the national publication Rollingout.com and I use my words to effect change. I speak truth to power. I speak life to the world.

MJ:  Talk about the youth!  Tell us the first three words that come to mind when you think of our youth.  Why has educating our youth become such a mission for you?

Precise: The first three words are love, future, and blessing. Educating the youth properly is important to not only their future but to ours because they are the leaders of tomorrow. We need to feed them properly and share positive vibes that lend to growth and a better world.

MJ:  For all your fans, supporters, and followers take a minute to share about current and upcoming projects.

Precise: I’m currently working on a project called “Man of the Ages”.  I have a song called “Speak Life” on all the streaming services that’s been picking up some steam. Right now I’m focused on getting better in all aspects of my life.

MJ:  Give us some fun facts!  Why Precise as your artist name?  What 3 artists are in your personal play list?  Where are your favorite places to tour?

Precise: I got my name from a Gangstarr song called “Precisely The Right Rhymes”… Right now the three artists I have in my playlist are Rapsody, Tyler the Creator, and G Herbo… I like New York, New Orleans, and Miami as places to tour.

MJ:  When we come back to the table in another 4 years what will we be catching up on?

Precise: 4 years from now when we catch up I hope to have grown as an artist and as someone who can influence others. My project would have broken some records and I’ll be moving on into the next phase of my career doing speaking tours.

MJ:  Is there anything else you would like the world to know about Precise?

Precise: I would like the world to know that I am doing this for a purpose. The reason I speak into a mic is for the uplifting of my people and the culture. I would also like people to know that I am grateful and appreciative to the creator for all the blessings that have been bestowed upon me. Also, stay focused, positive, and productive.

MJ:  I want to thank you again for taking the time out for MJ.  I want to thank you for being true to the culture and for creating that feel good music, that undeniable bona fide Hip Hop!
