Years later.... I drew something...bored in a college class with a blind teacher.
I thought it was cool. I took a digital picture of it and thought nothing of it. Before I knew it I was obsessed with this picture....and found the ink in the page literally reaching out to me. It reminded me of Venom's alien symbiote on spiderman. I heard another producer's wack beat and the ink ran away.
Months later, i woke up to this picture in my email:
It was from my man Alucard of Creative Juices. The message said "yo NeeM heres the drawing you wanted me to do. This is just a test run to make sure i got the idea down. Yo son, you ok? when you called me to tell me about this sh*t you sounded mad crazy...kinda possessed or somethin man. Hit me up. Wu Mansion."
Til this day i have no idea of what phone conversation hes talking about. I printed the picture out, and the ink on the page squirmed and made sounds as if it was missing a limb..like someone had cut off its arm or something.
Weeks later, I get another email from Alucard. "yo NeeM..here you go, iight man!! damn fam...now you can leave me alone. You need to get some help fam. I knew somethin was wrong with you when u appeared at the crib at 4:30am and had somehow climbed to our balcony to ask me for this drawing!! you wild kid!! get help!" I had no idea again what he was talking about. I did notice however that my nights were longer than before.
This was the drawing he sent:
The dark image some how changed me. It was I and I was it. It said on its face the answer to every question someone ever asked me.
NeeM whats for breakfast
It became my existence.
It told me me that its cousin was Maximum Carnage. Shout out to him.

Ive have put up the intro to the Pete Rock VS MidaZ mixtape on the music player without anyone's consent. This means that MidaZ or Conshus may find out its up and ask me to take it down...who knows. So it may not be there for long.
Monday, July 7, 2008
So i got up wit Roc thru Mic Geronimo. He was tellin' me stories about how this cat would record whole albums in 34 minutes. Im exaggerating, but damn the work ethic is not a game wit Roc. We started building on the song he did with me on IMAKEMADBEATS...and its a wrap after that. Songs jus started ending up done outta nowhere. If you dont know the homey...learn him.
Check his bio on STONES THROW's website:
4th of July is known as Independence day to Americans. Its also known as Grandad's birthday to Tzar and I. This day is also they day that, in 2008, MidaZ and IMAKEMADBEATS finished recording the songs for NIGHTMUSIC....in an 13 hour session at Quad that ended at 10 am the morning of the 4th. I got home, and slept for just under 3 hours. I couldn't sleep anymore. I was too excited, and began the arrangements and premixing setups. Midaz was in the next room sleep, came in, and told me to go back to sleep, but it was too late.

lol. Pay nothing, I already owe you.
Wednesday, July 2, 2008
Here you go...get it now.
Crew member Felony, known to me as Anonymous, in the T-Dot area of Canada just released his newest addition to an already crazy catalog of dope and innovative hiphop. Shout out to the whole P-Dox crew/family.
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
MidaZ and I have been in the streets or the lab daily. Its been nothing but networking, recordings, plotting and scheming. One of my cousins called the cops on me over some BS the other day. Im glad hes gone back to where the #()& he came from, and *(^# the POLICE...too. Its been a crazy ass last 7 days. Before that was all peaceful and easy working. Im not sure what happened, but everything is going sideways. Stress life.
Wednesday, June 18, 2008
Anyway...MidaZ in NYC. We are mixing MidaZ vs Pete Rock. Shout out to all those that came through on this project.
Shout out to my nigga in the OX, Roc C. If you dont know him (Stonesthrow, Move Pt2 prod by Dilla, mad other shit) u need to get acquainted. Well, I guess if you visit this blog, you WILL get more acquainted....hint hint project hint hint. Shout to my nig Magestik Legend in the D. He'll be out in NY for CMJ later this year. LOOK OUT for him.

Things finally seem to be moving again. I was in Tampa working with recording artist Manny D for almost 2 weeks, in the house of Lastings Milledge, a baseball player in Washington. Now I am back in Brooklyn and back on the streets trying to get this project where it needs to be.
You might see a guy with an afro that looks pretty much exactly like me as an extra in the upcoming Notorious BIG movie coming out soon, featuring Angela Bassett and Derek Luke. I have no idea who this guy is, and also have no idea how i know this information ;)

As i comtemplate how this project will reach the people...the one thing thats a constant in this equation is money. Money. Money. I need money. I haven't updated this blog as much as i would have liked as of recent only because im busy either makin beats or trying to get money. Ive slept on a couch for a long time now, and its not bad. Its not about getting myself dough in that sense, its about being able to put this project out the way that feel it needs to be. We have alot lined up. Being a composer is fun, man but rallying a team of people to work for you aint at all...whether theres money involved or not. I have talked to several graphic designers, agreed on pricing and everything, only to be let down buy inconsistencies, flakiness, and straight up slacking. And this has happened in many other facets putting together this project man. Sometimes i wish it was JUST about the beats...but i can't wish that all the time...because im in love with the process of a beat becoming a song, and then an album, and then a product, and then a movement. I just need some help man. Waiting on people is kinda depressing. I guess thats the nature of this game though. I aint complaining. Just know that this sh*t is dropping, and you wont be disappointed. Shouts to all those who believed from Day One.
Sunday, April 20, 2008
Finally a day off...well, not a day, but some hours. After the recent tour (videos coming soon), things been hectic. Producing for a lot of artists, and keeping the lights on...while trying to gain capital to lift this project off the way i want to.
Im glad to get more soldiers behind this movement....cuz this is about to be a war...mainly a financial one. Shout to cats like Arsun Fist who just dropped a single for yall to listen to...check it out at
Shout out to Domination Recordings (dj!!). If you havent heard, we have a new radio show on wprk 91.5 fm in Orlando, FL. Check it out.

THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING. THIS IS MY CRAFT! who goes to college to be an engineer, to work for free????

I have been doing a lot of mixing lately, some for Butta Verses up n coming album to be released on Domination Recordings, and others ranging from Bollywood Movie scores to new artists on Pharrell's Star Trak label. Its been an interesting first month in my new home in Brooklyn. I see a lot outside of my window i've never seen outside of a window, cuz i've never lived on a main street in my life. Here, I've seen anything from random beatdowns, to not-so-sane people yelling "helicopter!" over and over again, to the same old lady asking me for change 1531413 times a day, and not reallizing im the same person. Some of these things we had in Memphis, but some of this stuff is just strange. The 4th day i was in this apt, i saw a man fall from like the 20th flight of some building in the distance, then another man fall right after him. The first man died (rip) and the second lived. I have also seen snow go 100% horizontal....and not FALL at all...just fly to the left...down the street. Butta V also saw something flying from the sky around midnight one night. The sincerity in his face and eyes led to me believe somethin was about to go down!....its all good though.
And now a message from one of our sponsors:
Monday, March 3, 2008
Is it me or do cats take themselves wayyyy too seriously man. More and more i see it. I aint saying be the most modest "let a brother get the shirt off ya back" type of person, but damn, don't let YOU trip YOU up.
It aint that damn serious.
....At least dont do that where im from:)
Random thought: If it was up to me, I would never show my face in this rap sh*t. I'd just be a sillouhette (spelling?) of myself. Rap dudes is so caught up in themselves man. So caught up, when you reach out, they deny you, not knowing who you are and what you bring to the table. AND THESE DUDES IS NOBODY. Sillouhette huh? hmmmm... You know what, thats not a bad idea.
hmmm....**wheels are spinning**
a pic for the road....TzaRizM, J-Zone, Critical, and ....IMAKEMADBEATS.

Luckily we havent put everything were its supposed to go. My man Real 6 (Ronnie) straight set the stuff up in our living room...crazy!
Thursday, February 21, 2008
this phone call made my year. If it wasn't for me being excited about the creation and distribution of IMAKEMADBEATS...i dont think there would be a reason to leave my home after that statement. Things like that still get me geeked. Music, I love it.
So yeah...what im about to put up here wont be up for long... real exclusive footage..catch it while you can. Now I'll see who is really sleeping.
Butta Verses has been up for a minute...and we been knockin out some craziness at Quad...hmmm...u know what...i dont wanna say much this time. I might spoil it, and i dont wanna do that.
In random Other News....last night i got a chance to work with the singer who sang "One More Time" for Daft Punk at Quad...and wow....what an experience that was man. Talk about your eccentric people....
Auto Tune at its greatest...and thats all i will say on that:)

This is the view from my living room on to Fulton St....it was snowing hardcore...i still went out to get the pina colada slushee. Real G's, fam.
Yeah its been a while since i've updated my blog, and there is a reason for that. I've been swamped with finishing a lot of things, one of the main things is IMAKEMADBEATS. Next tuesday, before Akrobatik's album release show in NYC, Black Milk and Butta Verses will be recording the lead single at Quad Studios. Looking forward to that:)
We have more official dates for the OSOTS tour....

I've been mixing an album for Shinobi Stalin and mixing for several other people. I'm finally comfortable the new crib in BK, gettin used to the neighbors, furniture, and all that.
My cousin Dominic is leaving back for England today. He was here for a week or so in Nov, and came back in Jan for a month. I guarantee you will here his name again.
Butta Verses is coming to NY today and will be here for a couple of weeks, who knows what will come outta that....stay on the lookout.

Its been longer than i'd like since my last blog post here, and i have reason for it. So, about 4 days ago, i woke up to find water coming through my light fixture in the bed room. The light its self was sparking. At first it thought it had rained outside, and something was just leaking. I wasnt fully awake yet, so things werent coming together. Then I reallized, it hadnt rained at all. The water started to get heavier and heavier, and at first i was trying to Catch it with a bucket, but then i thought that maybe this bucket wasn't enough. It was then that I began to move all of my most important equipment out of my room. My computer first, then production tools..... just as i was gettin most of my stuff out, the ceiling collapsed and water poured into my room like the day God told Noah about. The floor was soaked and floor, some of my records were damaged...then i reached to pick up a record and the water electrocuted me. I was suspended around 3 seconds and it burned my arm and hand. i was knocked back to the kitchen, where i put a dent into the stove with my head. That day wasnt a good day.
Ironically....all this happened on the day the lease was signed for my new apartment. Great. This couldn't have happened one week later?
its all good...long as im alive and my stuff is good. Im outtie 500.

on the audio player to your right, a beat i made is playing. This beat is exactly as it is named, a Dedication to Donuts, the last project J Dilla released alive. He is easily my biggest influence, and on Donuts, he used a style/technique of chopping samples so precisely that I had never heard before. This in no way is my attempt at biting or calling the style my own, but only my take on what I consider the greatest producer ever, did on that project. From my perspective, there was a certain texture of sampling, a certain "not where u would normally chop" style of chops, and an ingenius subtle use of drums already in the sample chopped.
Forever a student, I am.
Turn it up, niggas!!
RIP JAY DEE.
