Artist Spotlight - Mitchy Slick

Welcome to another edition of Po Politickin. In this episode, we politick with San Diego rap veteran Mitchy Slick. Slick is a solo artist and one-third of Stones Throw Records hip-hop trio Strong Arm Steady. Founder and CEO, Slick branded Tha Wrongkind, a familial collective of artists, producers, deejays and entrepreneurs. Slick spent his formidable years in the southeastern division of San Diego, namely the Lincoln Park area. He later attended Prairie View A&M in Prairie View, Texas and returned to his hometown in California, where he embarked on his musical career. Mitchy was featured on Gangland about the San Diego Lincoln Park Bloods, a gang he associates with. Slick’s debut album, Triggeration Station was released in 2001 and peaked at #13 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart that same year. Since his debut, Slick has released numerous mixtapes including the XXL Guns collection, Mitchy Duz It, Strong Arm Robbery 1 & 2 and his sophomore album Urban Survival Syndrome. Along with Los Angeles emcees Krondon and Phil the Agony, west coast super-group Strong Arm Steady released its debut album Deep Hearted in 2007 followed by the mixtape Gang Mentality, the conceptual album In Search of Stoney Jackson, followed by Arms and Hammers, and most recently Stereotype, a collaborative album with producer Statik Selektah. In addition to mixtape appearances and both group and solo recordings, Slick has also collaborated with notable industry figures such as Gladys Knight, Lil Wayne, Waka Flocka Flame, Xzibit, The Game, Talib Kweli, Trae tha Truth, Paul Wall, Menace, The Jacka, Jay Rock and E-40. In 2007 Slick and bay area rapper Messy Marv released the joint effort, Messy Slick which landed on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart during the week of July 14, 2007. In early 2010, Slick and Tha Wrongkind released the Yellow Tape compilation followed by the Wrongkind Is Everywhere mixtape in 2012 presented by DJ Rah2k. In 2013, Mitchy Slick returned to the hip hop scene with a bang with the release of two solo albums entitled Feet Match the Paint, with The World’s Freshest aka DJ Fresh, and Won’t Stop. 2014 is expected to follow the same formula with Slick already releasing his “Call of Duty: South East” EP on January 13th for free download and has plans of turning into a full-length LP in the very near future.

Underground Legend Lil Keke releases “By Myself” from his forthcoming project, “Money Don’t Sleep.” “By Myself” features Eightball and Kevin Gates exchanging feel good bars with The Don over the a melodic beat about taking some much needed me time.

The track is the second single released from “Money Don’t Sleep,” scheduled for May 2014 release. The first single, Worry About You,” featured Kirko Bangz. Both songs are on Lil Keke’s recently released EP Sampler “Album Before the Album 3(A.B.A),” hosted by DJ Michael 5000 Watts.

Malcolm DeWayne, formerly known as Mac L was born in Nashville, TN. Heavily influenced by the lyrical elements of 90s Hip-Hop artists such as Jadakiss, Nas, and A Tribe Called Quest as well as the aggressive social consciousness of Ice Cube and Ludacris, Mac developed a love for music at a young age and began writing rhymes at twelve, battling at fourteen, and making beats at sixteen. In 2010, after opening up for the GZA/Genius of the world renown Wu-Tang Clan, Malcolm obtained his bachelor of science degree in Recording Industry Management with a Music Business concentration from Middle Tennessee State University. A year later, he changed his name to Mac L before releasing the critically acclaimed “Raw Material”, which was considered as one of the top 50 mixtapes of 2011 according to TooSickMuzik.com. His momentum continued the build as he threw the industry on its heels again, converting his stage name to his government name, Malcolm DeWayne, shortly after being listed as one of allhiphop.com’s top 50 underground Hip-Hop artists of 2012. His sound is often characterized as an old school soul with a progressive vibe, always striving to be a better lyricist and more complete artist. With new music on the way, he aims to continue his path to greatness.

“NYC underground mainstay AWKWORD has been hard at work on World View, his 100%-for-charity digital full-length, for five years. Now that’s what I call Dedication. After half a decade of perseverance, he’s finally secured a release date for the set and, to celebrate, he’s premiering a brand new single in the DJBooth complete with the official art work (above). Here, a pensive piano beat by Romania’s Dismas and Serbia’s Trillian backs AWK as he tells the story of Hezues R. An underprivileged youth raised in the ‘hood by a single mother, he was inspired to found the charity Guns 4 Cameras after nearly losing his life; he was shot at 22 times at close range with a 22 at age 22. Brooklyn emcee Centri laces the final verse with a harrowing personal narrative from the street. Sponsored by The DJ Booth and Morgan Stanley, World View will be released for digital purchase on February 2, 2014 with all proceeds from its sale going to Guns 4 Cameras.” — The DJ Booth
