M.i, “NoThing” (Prod. By M.i)

Posted in Downloads, Media with tags , , , on Tuesday, February 14, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Will February 21st just get here already please? M.i dropped another heat rock off of the Coldplay Sessions that is sure to caress your ear drums in the most pleasant manner. He builds his beautiful beat around serenading strings and perfectly placed drum hits, and the outcome is momentous. M.i is one of those guys that impresses me more and more every time I hear something new from him. Even though he’s cooking up this Coldplay Sessions project by himself, I know he’s been in the lab cooking up some ridiculous material with Tyler Keyes, and I’m dying to hear that stuff as well. Stay tuned, and make sure you keep your eyes peeled because you are going to be hearing a lot more about M.i in the future. You can grab the track download and check the video for “Paradise” (also off of The Coldplay Sessions) after the jump. Continue reading

M.i (Feat. ScienZe), “Bubble” (Prod. By M.i)

These last couple of leaks off of The Coldplay Sessions is really starting to get me amped for February 7th; M.i just dropped “Bubble” a few days ago, and I can honestly say that I’m digging the hell out of it. As I’ve mentioned before, M.i has a super laid back flow, and he makes it very easy to like his music. He brings along Brooklyn native Scienze to do some damage on his beautiful jazz influenced beat. This Austin native is becoming one of my favorite emcees; this dude has skills on the mic and the production boards, and that’s not easy to come by.

M.i, “Crawl Back” (From The Coldplay Sessions)

Austin, Texas native M.i dropped some new heat from his upcoming mixtape The Coldplay Sessions which is slated to drop on February 7th of next month. The Coldplay Sessions will be a follow-up to his last two mixtapes The Jack Johnson Sessions and Prep Time, both of which are fantastic releases; in fact, Prep Time was on of my top five favorite mixtapes last year. “Crawl Back” gives the listeners everything that they’ve become accustomed to hearing when listening to M.i: beautiful soul sample based beats and M.i’s signature laid back flow.The thing that impresses me most is that M.i does all of his own production, mixing and arranging on The Coldplay Sessions. The tape will contain fourteen brand new tracks that contain sample flips from Coldplay songs, and M.i will be putting his own spin on each cut.

Many of you may recall that M.i won a contest put on by the people of HipHopDX and Crooks & Castles to be featured on an exclusive  beat created by the Grammy Award winning production collective The J.U.S.T.I.C.E League. His entry, “Maybe I” was a certified heat rock, and it can be viewed below.
