Mudhir / Blog
Got an impromptu session going with TBZ, worked literally until daylight, and came out of it with two new (rough draft) offerings: "Fuck a Hook", and "Faze Me" which is actually a random freestyle recording, with post mix. Support your local aspiring rap act Mudhir by fanning us, following us, joining our Facebook, blah blah blah. We won't pay Reverbnation to get us good chart position, but we will show love to fellow artists and talent by returning the favor. We are ready to add a YouTube channel that will eventually include videos for some of our favorite tunes. Share us with someone if you dig our shit. One
"Lady Luck', AND "Flip[ a Coin". Those are our latest offerings, and judging from our stats, equity, woompty woomp, they are liked. Thanks for spinning our music, if you did. We try and return the favor when we can.
For now, we dipped back down in 60's for the bay, but we are still pushing for that coveted top shit. We don't get as much time to just do track after track like we used to, but we are getting a lot tighter with our formulas, and the quality of what we can do in a short time. We have yet begun to drop our best shit, rhyme-wise, beat-wise, production, etc. MUDHIR wants that fuckin brass ring, so if you feel our shit, share it, play it, downloaded (if it's available) and we can bring this shit to its knees. We represent the Bay Area, South Africa, and real Hip Hop. No smoke and mirrors...for illusions anyways.
We are the sick and twisted fucks we say we are. Sorry, that is just what it be.
The newest news from us (NEW MUSIC UPDATE)
So, we have been a lot less active as far as volume or frequency of work, but we have been changing up our approach. When we first got this whole thing going last December, we did "mix tape" type shit, even though the beats and rhymes were all us (they always have been).
Now we record one track at at time, and if we don't get it finished, we wait until we have it down how we want it. We are trying to make every new recording we do surpass the last. We are definitely finding our groove, the style we want to portray, and the flavor that we are feeling from song to song. In a lot of ways, we have progressed faster than we ever envisioned that we would. We are serious about our music. We want to share it with hip hop heads, and anyone else who is feeling our style. That is something that has taken on a life of it's own. We are in the top 2500 here in the US (in Hip Hop on ReverbN) and globally. We know only the stats, but we aren't paying for this service, we are promoting ourselves. Thank you to all of the folks out there playing our early renditions, and there is much more in the very near future on the way.
In case you missed it, we posted two new tracks (Bitch Please, Necromancer) last weekend, and they are pretty much done, save some minor post mix and mastering. They are all readily available for those who want to hear what we are doing now.
As of today, two new things are posted. The first is a beat (minus the lyrics) that is ready for vocal tracking called "DOOM", and the other is a song called "DEEP 6" that is basically done. There is a verse in there by me (Mr. SageBrush) that is already on "Th-Bay", but it was done intentionally. We think outside the box when it comes to formula, more importantly our formula, and we don't do things the way they are "scripted". Our aspiration is to be different that all the other cookie cutter rap acts out there. We have no set style, but we have stories to tell in the form of songs. That is what we do.
Town Boy Zed (TB, the lyrical force behind our shit) is coming up every day, has literraly hours worth of lyrics documented, and ready to spit. We are taking a musical approach to our recording process, and it is paying off. Expect a lot clearer style of production, cleaner post mixes, more alternating verses between us two, and some dark content lyrically. Happy songs and fake lyrical content is not something in our DNA as musicians. We speak the truth. It might not be uplifting or positive, but this is us. Like it or not, this is who we are.
We are working on video, media, and pics to share so the world sees how we do whatg we do. That is coming very soon, as well as some sessions with live instrumentation. We are MUDHIR.
If you fell like rollin the dice, you will like what we have when this record is finished.
Later folx. Mr.SageBrush
CHEM2 (welcome to the team)
Hip hop has always been several elements. That's DJing, Rhyming, BBoyin, and Grafitti, and we don't mean street corner bullshit, we mean the real art form.
Mudhir just scored another coup by adding local artist CHEM2 to the team. We are serious about our shit. Stepping up our game.
This is a track that has been a pet project of mine for well over a couple months now, the lyrics, hook, delivery of the verses, everything is done, but I been tweaking the fuck out the beat until I get what I want. It's something that I have big expectations for.
I don't get on verses too much, but this one is all me from beat, to bars, to hook, post mix, and everything in between. It's a real fucked up song, once it actually gets all the way constructed. Stay tuned.
38 Special ( song lyrics)
38 special 38 years lived on deadly levels 38 of fighting my ginn, losin 38 trials and wars with the devil 38 special 38 specialized ways to kill mics 38 bars one hook 38 getting old school but still tight 38 special meanings 38 to life for violent thinking 38 days in the hole 38 blue and red lights blinkin 38 years learned the hard way 38 years older no doubt 38 three hundred sixty five times 38 years of acting out

So, as minimal as in may be in our grand scheme for success in this hip hop game, we do pay attention to how we rank with the social score, downloads, plays, followers, likes, reverbnation rank, and twitter, amongst many other endless social media platforms.
All that said, we have gotten some good support from a lot of fellow artist here on RVN, and we definitely plan on showing some love back. That means actually listening to and appreciating (we do) other acts out there, most notably Bay Area cats with much talent, and not enough attention for their hip hop. The Bay has always had its trademark sound for sure, but has been copied since day one. The shit I'm hearing from here right now is so legitimate, but not getting its due. Our goal as a fledgling project is to try and get our shit heard, obviously, but our plan is to follow, like, retweet, play tunes, and watch videos from all of this dope music, because it helps us all. No fake messages will be sent as a way of gathering responses from us. If we commented, we legitimately mean that as artists. Real recognizes real.
So far, it's paying off for us as far as widening our audience, and its keeping us on the upswing. In the next few weeks we will be putting out more new tracks. We feel as a duo that we are just now honing our styles, methods, instrumentation, mixing prowess, and most importantly, lyrical structure and content. We may get formulaic from time to time, as far as bars, hooks, choruses, etc., but not to bite other played out song structure.
We both do this from the gut, and are generally about as far away from structured prefab song progressions. That's just who we are. Can't do it any other way.
We are definitely listening to other reverb artists, and have mad respect. It's not something just anyone should do.
That's it for this installment. We are pushing the envelope for how we can step up our game every new mix. Thanks for gambling on us.
We lost quite a bit of ground in our home turf charts recently, but we knew that slowing down and perfecting our tracks would benefit us the most in the big picture. We are proud to put out Rezo, and more recently, Santoro. We are really startling to push for record worthy recordings.
Zane aka TB is finding his stride, and our beat, production, and recording game is as healthy as it has been yet. We have all the software we need, plenty of hardware, and encyclopedias of lyrics.
We are focused on making good songs. Period.
If you read this', thanks for listening. It matters to us.
Just pounded out some new shizzle. "Rezo" with TB on the vocal as it should be. It's a song about his experiences in different conditions. MrSB on the track as usual. We are putting in work.
Get out mah faaay...leeeme ALONE
In the works...
been having quite a time getting new stuff out, but we have decided that taking our time and producing good material is by far more important than shitting out what ever we did recent. we have some major tracks in the works.
in the meantime, if you wanna check out some other beats, etc from Mr. SageBrush, check this older page...
thanks for listening.
