Shooooot IMUer’s what a week it’s been so far, consisting of highs, lows, and in-betweens. Lil Mosey has been accused of rape, and Fivio Foreign was scooped up with a loaded gun after fleeing the police. NLE Choppa is bringing the heat to law enforcement accusing them of Premeditated Murders. Go Choppa!!! ✊🏼the men and women who serve and protect the humans in America are not getting the message. I understand the Anti-Asian hate crimes bill trust me, I literally have family in Thailand, hate belongs nowhere on this EARTH. (Shout out to Earth Day yesterday we apologize we missed it). I ask this question where is the Anti-Hate Bill against humanity? Black Men/Women/Children and Brown Men/Women/Children in America are not safe from the people paid and sworn to protect them, it brings tears to my eyes. Uncle Commish has many nephews and niece’s too stand up for.
Our culture lost another pioneer of the game. Shock G from Digital Underground passed away at 57. Shock introduced the world to 2Pac and was a leader in the West Coast movement. Rest in Power G!!!

Ya’ll know Friday’s are our favorite day of the week over here we get to bless our ears with new music! This week we have some exclusive content from Eric Notez, the new joints that made us feel something in various genres, and wait until you see what we’ve got coming up. Let’s get it into this situation, open up your mind ‘N’ ears, turn up your speakers, spark something up, and enjoy.
Now For Your Viewing Pleasure
Tennessee’s native son Demario DeWayne White Jr. AKA MoneyBagg Yo dropped “A Gangsta’s Pain,” 22 tracks and 52 minutes into the cinematic life, mind, and soul of a man, dealing with pain. The super dope ‘Shottas’ inspired video feels authentic. There is something about traveling to a third-world country that instantly raises your perspective and credibility. The colors, mini-movie, and fly fits make for an entertaining visual experience.
Make Towers was born and raised in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. The new visuals for “Mirenme Ahora” (Look At Me Now) exudes confidence and it’s gorgeous in all aspects. The editing is on point and seamless. Beautiful women dressed in uniforms, dancing ‘N’ vibing when appropriate, the wardrobe is eyecatching and the set design is top-notch.
IMUer’s if you’re a lover of music like myself then you will love this. Wow, ZiggaRice and the live performance impressed the crap out of me! I know Thailand has a rich Hip-Hop culture, but shoot, my homie DaBoyWay and his team at Def Jam Records are producing some top-tier artists.
The Heartfelt Feel Good Rockers Weezer blessed us with their 10th studio project. “I Need Some” rings nostalgia from the first few seconds. Rivers Como and the boys have given us a dose of hope ‘N’ bliss we could use right now.
Heavy Metal fans and appreciators of musicianship rejoice! Bodom After Midnight the spawn of Switzerland legends Children Of Bodom have dropped a roaring 3 track EP worth checking out🤘🏼. Enjoy the headbanging good time.
Indie Scottish Pop Rockers Chvrches(Churches) are back with a new single. Lauren Mayberry’s intoxicating vocals and beautiful smile pair well with Scott Kiernan’s vision for “He Said She Said.” Enjoy the video IMUer’s and let us know what you think.
Dancers, ravers, and EDM head’s your boy DeadMau5 linked up with REZZ and released some trippy visuals for their record “Hypnocurrency.” When the beat drops and a big mouse head is gliding through the streets, you can only imagine what it’ll be like when the first ‘molly poppin’ dance party officially can happen.
Cordae is a few leagues above his peers, that’s just stating facts. The 23-year-old North Carolina-born Maryland-raised emcee blessed us with a 12 minute, 4 track EP titled “Just Until…” Check out the video for the single “More Life,” featuring “Q-Tip.” Make sure you watch the whole video IMUer’s for a super dope moment in the culture that was captured in real-time.
I was blown away by what I witnessed in the above video. Butcher Brown and the Boys have got something serious going on in the Jazz world. Watch their Tiny Desk concert you won’t be disappointed and check out their new EP hitting streaming services on June 4th.
IMUer’s please please do yourself a favor and scoop out this joint from Eric Notez featuring ‘The OG‘ Junior Reid. This video right here is the culture in so many ways. You can feel the energy and hear the ghosts of Pac and Big conversing in approval. Stay tuned Eric is going to be our second guest on Commish’s Corner episodes coming soon.
So our community knows tomorrow afternoon the team and I are going to be in NYC at the Barclay’s Center covering and celebrating the life and music of our brother DMX. IMUer’s let us know what you think of the misc in the comments section below.
