After being smashed in the face on camera... The creator of "STYLIN ON EM", Nyckz, hit me up on myspace as if I'm supposed to be making fun of him. He proceeds to say we are biting his sh*t. I'm like, man, did you notice we are MAKING FUN of you. lol. THIS AINT SERIOUS. lol.
I told him to "Sit yo ass down" like angry man from MARTIN...
and now years later..i will spread the laughter again.
The Promo Video:
After being hit up by the most famous rapper NYCKZ, when then decided to make our own parody version of being styled on. There are even references to Afro Samurai in it, randomly, lol. I have no idea what we were thinking. I was still in college in Long Island. Shout out to the Long Island Railroad and my man Greg Jackson aka Liggy J. Keep in mind none of this was serious...all in the name of having fun.
Of course, its MidaZ with a Z.

Critical Madness Album Sampler:
About the release: Critical Madness (cRITICAL + Madness) is the combination of 2 legendary battle vets who originally met in the orlando hip-hop scene and eventually partnered up after competing for the same crown in the final round of numerous open mic freestyle tournaments. What started as a couple of CM tracks has now manifested into their debut album "Bringing Out The Dead", released through Domination Recordings which features collaborations with Slaughterhouse front man Joell Ortiz as well as Sabac Red, Young Zee, long-time collaborator Little Vic and others. Covering the production side, TEMPERMENTAL produced the bulk of the LP with TzariZM adding his own brand of sickness to the stew. Marco Polo and DC the MIDI alien also contributed to the soon-to-be classic. "BOTD" covers everything from the politics down to pornography using clever lyricism & unique wordplay over infectious melodies laced with some boom bap. It is the experience of a lifetime and gives a slight peek into the influences that created this mind bending duo.

So...this story starts just under a month ago. I'm getting a new screen for my MPC shipped to me from Toronto, Canada. On Nov 17th, the tracking shows that it reached Brooklyn, NY. Great, right? WRONG. I didn't get a package that day. The next day, nothing. I call the Post Office, and give them my tracking number. They tell me, "yes we have your package, would you like to pick it up?" I respond with "YES I will be there within the hour. thx!" I hit the train to go to the post office, get there, and they tell me "we don't have your package, we never did." The manager there tells me to call him tommorow morning to further track the package. I call the next day, they tell me they have no idea where the package is. I then call the 1800 number for the USPS. They track the package back to that same Post Office.
Now...this is one week before I drive to Memphis, TN. I'll be in Memphis for a while. So I'm really trying to get this situation solved. For the entire next week, the USPS has no idea, even with a tracking number, where the package is. The day TzaR, Marie, and myself leave NY in my car on a 17 hour journey to Memphis is the day I get an email telling me they tried to deliver my package and a notice was left. The package had been in NY for a week and no one could tell me where it was, until the day I leave NY. Great. I called the post office and told them the entire story. 1 representative was telling me it had been sent back to Toronto, while another was telling me they didnt know what post office it was at. I'm telling them "LOOK AT THE TRACKING NUMBER. ITS AT THE FARRAGUT POST OFFICE. HOW could it be back in Toronto, YOU JUST sent me a notice saying u tried to deliver it to the old address ONE HOUR AGO." I wanted to say "Its at the FARRAGUT POST OFFICE, YOU BITCH" but then I know I would have never got my screen.
After getting someone on the phone who had half a brain, they tell me that the package is "oh that package? yeah thats right downstairs" I asked if I could have someone pick up the package for me. No. Can they send it to me in Memphis? "You have to mail in some paper work" So wait...You fucked up, and keep fuckin up, and I gotta MAIL YOU something, which will take a week, or never reach you at all thanks to YOUR OWN SERVICE INCOMPETENCE. After convincing the manager there to let me fax him some information, he said he'd forward my package to Memphis, TN. A day later, he tells me that the package had been shipped off to Memphis and I should get it within 3 business days. Ok cool.Today was the day I was expecting it........
About an hour or so ago, I get a phone call from my brother TzaR's phone. It was Liz aka @Msphenomenal407. She's telling me she has something of mine that is very important. Turns out, TZ went to my old crib to get some stuff I left behind, and there was my package...just chillin. The delivery date was early last week.
Ok. WHY DID THE USPS tell me it was being DELIVERED TO MEMPHIS? DO THEY KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT ?????????????????????????????? THEY PLAYING GAMES!!!! You lose my screen, then say you found it a week later, give me a hard time about getting it redelivered, say it was redelivered, and it never was!!! YOU DIDNT EVEN HAVE IT TO REDELIVER IT!!!!!!
Stuff like this gets people *********.
So I'm gonna put his name out there. BRIAN FRAZIER at the FARRAGUT USPS station in BROOKLYN...on UTICA AVE. This is the lying bastard. If you see him there, and then later see him walking down the street, don't hesitate to ************, *******, or ********* at him. Let it all out, in the name of IMAKEMADBEATS.
By the way. I still have his fax number. I will fax him a direct link to this page. So if your reading this, Brian, FUCK YOU. You had a smartass mouth on the phone and didn't even know what the fuk you were talking about. This is why the USPS has less than 5 years until it goes out of business.

So..this post is really random. I was going through random mp3s on my computer and found a lot of funny things. One of them being me showing off the Micro Korg vocoder to my cousin Synopse, sometime around 2004. Days after this, I used this vocoder to make the beat for "All Im Askin" on the Transcontinental album released this year.
So Hezekiah let me hear his addition to the IMAKEMADBEATS album dropping on Culture Kings/Domination Recordings. I'm mad hype. Definitely put the cherry on top of the project. I met Hezekiah setting up last years Smash Mouf tour with Roc C and Oh No. Good dude all around. Shouts to Hustle Simmons and all my Philly area heads.
I WISH i could post a snippet of it for you all to hear...

Shout outs to Sucio Smash and Squeeze Radio for playing the "Lets Go" single from "The Ozone" Mixtape released through Potholes In My Blog.
Check the playlist and listen here:
For those that don't know...
Airing on Thursday nights/Friday mornings from 1:00-5:00am, Squeeze Radio is the place to listen to hip-hop in New York City. In its original incarnation, DJ Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito aka DJ Cucumberslice co-hosted the Stretch & Bobbito Show. In the early 1990s the show was voted “the best hip-hop show of all time” by Source Magazine and “the best hip-hop show in New York” by the Village Voice. Today, Squeeze Radio is hosted by SUCIO SMASH. The show was voted best Hip Hop Show in New York by Time Out New York magazine.
So, I don't know if you would call this hip hop or not. I made it with vocalist Mylodic in the studio circa April of this year. We wanted to make something that sounded like how we felt when we surrounded the hookah. Shout out to my hookah heads. Before I tried it I thought it was crack, lol, until my Ethiopian sister IMAN and college homies MDot Coop and Greg Jackson convinced me otherwise. Exclusive download...

In alot of my older stuff..the bassline was the main attraction..lol.
So, I uploaded some old beats. They are in the Reverbnation Audio player to the right. I probably won't leave them up for more than 72 hours. Some of these are old, others are old and are joints i feel like would never surface because I made them for me, not necessarily for a rapper. I think every producer has those beats..
Heres a brief story about them...
feel free to leave comments in the CBOX to the right.
Dont Say Nuthin.
I did this about 3-4 days after this single dropped and i got the acapella off the record. I still like this, I think.
I made this before I moved to NY, so around 04 I think. I could always see MOP on it. Maybe i should remake it.
303 Hard Rock TZ Instrumental
I made this as soon as I got my 303. I think 05. Tzsr did a song on it. I wont leave this up long, so when TZ releases it, it'll still be new.
Ha...05. Definitely sounds like Pete to me. I think thats a Rasco Acapella i cut in...
Definitely One of the hundreds of my easily influenced by Jay Dee beats..lol
No need to even try to hide it. Dilla dog all day. 04 for sure.
Early 2004. Still livin in Tzars living room..lol. Just got the S2000 Rack sampler and was testing it out.
Ha...I didnt have any sample records when i did this...was really just messin around..came out kinda funked out. This beat is funny to me...I'd rap on it tho!!lol.
Steele n Yuk n Relz
So 05/06 Im an intern at Quad studios and Im recordn my homey Relz. He brings in Steele of Smif n Wessun and Yuk. They need beats..i got this old beat on me from 04. Steele gets maaaaddd hype listenin to it. The rest is history.
Way Back Into Time
Me, Mdotcoop and the homey Liggy J used to freestyle to this in my college dorm. 06 i think.
Shuggie Otis sample. I just like this beat. Still. 04 i think.
SP12 Turbo Eclipse
Straight Sampled everything thru the SP. You can hear it in the piano...
NONE of these beats were on an MPC.
Interested in anything something? send me an email...

From Potholes In My Blog:
Last week we hit you with “Let’s Go” by IMAKEMADBEATS and Emilio Rojas off the forthcoming The Ozone, which showcases the underground hip hop scene of Orlando, FL and is hitting the interwebs October 20. Here’s one more treat to hold you over:
Swamburger is ¼ of Anti-/Epitaph group Solillaquists of Sound. Optiks is the 2008 Scribble Jam Producer Battle Champion who recently produced the bulk of Blitz the Ambassador’s widely-acclaimed Stereotype. “Woe Is Not Me” is the ridiculously dope result of their collaboration.
If you don’t have this song stuck in your head for weeks, we’ll give you a free download of The Ozone on October 20. And if you do? Then you’ll probably still want to download the mixtape for free when it drops on October 20. Enjoy…

From Potholes In My Blog:
Prepare to get thrown into the Ozone. On the heels of our last project Transmitting Live Volume 1, we’re switching gears a bit with a new mixtape highlighting talent both up-and-coming and established out of one of the hottest breeding grounds for underground hip hop…Orlando?!?!?
Don’t sleep – Orlando (aka Ozone) is bursting at the seams with talent, and you’ll understand why when we drop The Ozone on October 20th. To get you ready, we’re leaking a track from the project by IMAKEMADBEATS (yep, he reps Florida) and Emilio Rojas, called ‘Let’s Go.’ It’s some sinister shit. Pass it on…

I'm a younger brother. Not just to my blood brothers, but to a whole crew. I started doing music as part of a group of rappers and producers called The Paradox Unit. I was still in high school in Memphis,TN, meanwhile my older brother TzarizM and older first cousin Synopse, both emcees and producers, were in college in OZONE (Orlando) FL. They pretty much made it hard for me (and a lot of others) get any shine in the local scene, with Synopse producing what became the longest running no. 1 song in the underground radio countdown, and TzarizM winning/murdering every lucrative battle within a 100 mile radius. Surrounding the two were a crew of lyrical mercenaries...which I will gladly name a bit later. After getting sent back to the drawing board by the two beatsmiths what seemed like 1904 times, Syn came with the idea of calling ourselves "The 3 Wisemen," because we were the main producers of what most would say is a large crew.
In 2009, the trio returns. Allow us to reintroduce ourselves.
The founder of the Paradox Unit. 1/2 of Snakeyes (Shout out to J Freedome). 1/3 of The 3 Wisemen.
He offers his new single "Do You Remember" from his upcoming album Magic Box. He will soon be celebrating "The 10 Year Anniversary of the Album That Never Dropped," an album titled ANLAC that was obviously produced and recorded a decade ago. Until that, and his new album drop, enjoy this single.

"Fans of West Coast underground hip-hop know Roc ‘C’ for his stellar debut mic appearance on the 2004 Oh No single “Move Pt. 2,” produced by J Dilla. Roc’s stand-out verse and cameo in the song’s video generated quite a buzz, leading to his own solo deal with Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw Records. Roc has made a lot of noise right out the gate.
Roc 'C' returns with a new song for the hustler's, "Hustler's Theme," featuring veteran Queens rapper/ Moesha actor Fredro Starr of Onyx and produced by the upcoming "madman turned producer" IMAKEMADBEATS.
Get it here:
The budding composer IMAKEMADBEATS produced the entire album The Transcontinental, a collaboration between him and Roc 'C', which will be released on E1 Records (formerly known as Koch) on May 19th featuring the likes of Rakka Iriscience, Chino XL, Rapper Big Pooh, and more. IMAKEMADBEATS is set to drop his self-titled solo production album featuring Roc C, Black Milk, Butta Verses, Steele of Smif-N-Wessun, Masta Ace and more this summer on Culture Kings Music."
BIG SHOUT OUT to Sean A. Malcolm aka DJ PROFILE, journalist and Lifestyle Editor of the recently defunct KING Magazine, for the feature! Check out the homie's blog here:

"Almost three years later, Roc returns with The Transcontinental, a complete collaborative project with IMAKEMADBEATS, a production outfit also known to Rah Digga, Steele and Mic Geronimo fans as Nemo.

Its getting warmer in NYC. I just got over what felt like the realest sickness I've ever had. I hope the spring comes soon.
