The What Is Hip-Hop Project connected with NYC’s Emcee and Artist, Mickey Factz and asked if he had any projects in the works. Being the busy multitasker and music producer he is, he not only has new projects in the works but also just dropped his new “Rare Freestyles and Unearthed Works Vol2 Mixtape just yesterday. The brother stays busy.
Factz told TWIHHP “Yes 3 new projects in the next 3 months. He plans to release an ep once again with Toronto producer, 100 bulletz, then another mixtape of his own, and then drop a third ep with Detroit emcee, Key Wane.

TWIHHP is remixin some things and we are about to start blogging… Truthfully when I started this blog project, What Is Hip-Hop? and the name domain got swagger jacked and then diluted and polluted. So we changed the title to – The “What Is Hip-Hop?” Project… Then hip-hop started getting corny. Manufactured artists and tailored hyped radio. Labels bailing on artists, artists bailing on artists, and brothers like Mickey Factz had to school the game on what going independent was really about.
I’m talking about back between 2003 to 2008. After that came the rap drama and more promoted drama. I personally did not care for the tailored bullsh!t circulating in hip-hop media. It wasn’t long before the culture vultures flew in and builts large budgets and platforms to monopolize the new “we are so interested in hip-hop” movement. But if you pay attention to the discussions with these musical hip-hop greats, they only want to highlight the drama in their life and past. It’s really frustrating to get turned down for an interview to watch someone else waste a great opportunity with an artist I grew up listening too and respect.
Speaking of interviews and promoted drama, Kanye West had a sit-down and open discussion with folks of TMZ. The full overall discussion was enlightening and real. Ye and the team from the show laid their truths on the table and it appeared to be appreciated and respected. BUT instead of putting out the video explaining his objective with the whole hat thing, the editors decided to cookie cut the dog sh!t out of it in the hopes that the gullible sheeple were listening and ready to be steered into another form of confusion and self-hate.
By the time the people ingested the half-truths, the intoxication was in motion. Cyber threats started to circulate and a new black man in entertainment was labeled a villain.
To be honest, people are too sensitive to things they are told to be sensitive to, and numb to things they should be paying attention to. I would have like to have heard the full discussion instead of the precision-ly carved piece of content they baited people with. Now the truth is out there and people are still in their emotions. He could have worded it in a way that was sugar coated it or added some nasty ass cheese on it to make politically acceptable by the masses, but funk that. That is his truth. And I understand it. Alarm clocks are loud for a reason.
I guess in the mix of it all, Kanye decided to challenge his lyrical ability and expression of truth alongside a notable and of-the-people emcee, T.I. In this verbal back and forth – Ye vs. The People with T.I.P speaking as the people and Ye as himself addressing his recent actions. Take a listen to the track.
Man!!! Listen… Ye just moved up a notch on my list of emcees. NOW… if you listen to their parts, Ye is talking affirmatively and forward-thinking, and productively. And on the other end, T.I.P is talking with assumptions and doubt and what-ifs and spookism. Damn, he was supposed to be the “tough” or “real one” in the cypher, ya’naw’mean? But in actuality, his voice of the people was real and exact. That is how many people think.
Brother Polight broke it down earlier today with his perspective on the whole thing…
“I would like to share my views on the Kanye West controversy however I am more perturbed at the type of responses and the people that are sharing them. Is supporting Trump worse than selling drugs to your own people or encouraging your race to disrespect their women. We are in an uproar about Kanye’s point of view which have been misconstrued for the purposes of media propaganda. I just ask myself is anyone in the black community mad at the messages that have been propagated by our entertainers or did we just wake up to our moral compass because it is more becoming to criticize Kanye” ~Bro Polight
#TheKanyeEffectThePOLIGHTresponse After a great build with @thatsvyk I would like to share my views on the Kanye West controversy however I am more perturbed at the type of responses and the people that are sharing them. Is supporting Trump worse than selling drugs to your own people or encouraging your race to disrespect their women. We are in an uproar about Kanye’s point of view which have been misconstrued for the purposes of media propaganda. I just ask myself is anyone in the black community mad at the messages that have been propagated by our entertainers or did we just wake up to our moral compass because it is more becoming to criticize Kanye 🤔🤔🤔 #BrotherPOLIGHT #CelebrityMentorConsciousAdvisor #iAmTheEvolutionOfTheRevolution
