Since the release of “Witness the Strength” is only a few days away and it’s been about 2-years since I’ve chopped it up with Hell Razah Music, Inc. /GGO Producer Miverson, I figured we were long over due for a “sit down” (digitally speaking of course).

QTP: Boss, Boss, Boss… It’s been about 2 years since we last sat down to chop it up interview style. How have you been & what’s new in your world?
MAV: Wow, really 2 years already, time flies when your working hard. I’ve been great thank you. Just been really working on this project as well as others for 2015.
QTP: Your project “Witness the Strength” is finally ready for release and will be dropping the 12th of this month. I don’t think most people realize how long a production project can take or all the work that goes into a MXTP or Album release. You want to shed some light on the amount of work you put into this project?

MAV: You ain’t lying. Honestly I thought I can get a few tracks and just release. That was not the case what so ever. I realized that I have a great opportunity here so I wanted to take my time putting it together. It took almost 3 years for WTS to be completed and up to my standards. Now I can finally release it and be satisfied.

QTP: Is this your first full production project that’s featuring multiple artists?

MAV: Not my first fully produced project, but its my first fully produced project featuring multiple artists.

QTP: What other projects have you done in the past year or so that features your production?

MAV: I recently released “TheyDontHearMeTho” which is a project that I fully produced featuring Fes Taylor. I also have a joint project that i fully produced with a Nebraska rapper by the name of Strive and that project is called “FeedMeMo”. You can find all my projects onwww.DatPiff.com

QTP: What’s the artist line-up look like for WTS? Who can folks expect to hear artist wise and is there a hosting DJ?

MAV: Let’s see I have Razah on the intro and a track ft. Jahmal, you QTP, Automatik,
iNTeLL(Son of U-God), Fes Taylor, Stealf Bombz, Ruthless Bastards, Stumik(of Ice-Water), Mic Check, just to name a few. I also have a few local rappers. Overall I think the line-up is great. I was thinking of having a DJ host it but It didn’t work out that way, so maybe next time.

QTP: Now that the project is release ready, are you happy with the end result?

MAV: Happy is an under statement! I am really excited, ecstatic and nervous.

QTP: Is there any significance in the chosen release date?

MAV: Well I had a few dates to choose from and the date that stood out of course was my Birthday. So as a gift to myself and my fan base I picked March 12th. Can’t get any better then that!

QTP: Where will the project be available for download?

MAV: It will be available on Www.DatPiff.com for free download.

QTP: Are there anymore projects that you’re working on? What’s next?

MAV: Yes I have a few projects lined up. I have a project with Automatik Greatness (InfoWarz), the project that you and I are working on (No title yet) and if WTS does well I might have Volumes of it.

QTP: I have to say for me  personally, the chemistry that you and I bring together on tracks is something that I know I don’t experience with every producer. Every track we have released so far has been received well by the listeners, and as an Artist I know there is just such a significant difference in the music when a producer is sending you beats versus the beats a producer makes for you specifically. Our last release “Q.T.P.” I remember I didn’t even like the beat at first until you told me to listen to it again because the beat sounded like it was saying “QTP”. What is it like for you as a producer? I know you have great chemistry with Automatik Greatness, but do you get to experience that every time you work with someone or is each person different?

MAV: Yes you and I have been putting out that FUEGO lol. Chemistry is definitely there. As for other artist chemistry is there as well, I have a hand full of artist that I have an idea what they like so it makes it easier on both parts. Like Fes Taylor, you mentioned Automatik and iNTeLL (Son of U-God) & yourself.

QTP: What is the most challenging part about working with artists?

MAV: I would have to say time. Everybody lives their seprate lives so I can’t always expect someone to drop what their doing to do a track for me. Other then that I think I’m pretty good shape when it comes to collaborations. I am a very patient person so that helps with my music.

QTP: What is the most challenging thing you’ve done as a producer thus far?

MAV: Getting Witness The Strength where it is now. I’ve come a long way Queen, I remember sitting there making music for fun then one day it all turned around in a blink of an eye. Now I’m sitting here waiting for a release on a project that features artists like Razah, Fes, QTP etc. Its truly a blessing.

QTP: If you could work with anyone in the world (living or deceased) who would it be and why?

MAV: Damn, I’m stumped. I would say RZA only because he is the reason I produce. So to have him on a track produced by Miverson would be sick. Of course GZA, Masta Killa, iNS, and a few other cats from my era. Nas, Jay-Z, if Big L was alive him as well. I’m willing to work with anyone though, I don’t discriminate.

QTP: Boss, where can folks find you on your social media handles?

MAV: -Instagram @MiversonMav
-Twitter @Miverson_
-YouTube @Miverson27
-Facebook @Miverson27
-SoundCloud @Miverson

QTP: Is there anything else you want folks to know?

MAV: Just a quick thank you to all the artists that helped me put this together. It wasnt easy but its DONE! Also be on the look out for more Miverson production in the near future. With that being said, Queen I appreciate you taking time out of your busy life to sit and have an interview with me. I also want to thank you for all the support you have giving me throughout the year. You have helped in so many ways. Peace & Wingz Up!

#MuseumOfHipHop released pd by @sneakvandel hit’s #3 on Dat Piff 1st Day Out!

 

mhc

Well we tried to warn you that this project was going to be worth it, but in this case we can let the numbers do the talking! Not even 12-hours after it’s Mid-Night release on July 27th (this past Sunday where some iphones Siri predicated when asked “What is July 27, 2014” that the “gates of Hades open” ) Museum of Hip-Hop hit #3 on Dat Piff’s top 8 (Museum is also available on various MXTP sities around the globe). Well I guess Siri was correct in a sense because the gates of hell certainly opened and were unleashed on most of the garbage music available on the radio today, clearly defining what Hip-Hop is and is not.

What can you expect with this download? You will hear classic Hip-Hop beats (all produced by Sneak Vandel), authentic DJ scratches (no Mp3J’s), you will find appearances by some of the greatest emcees to ever touch a mic (Hell Razah, GZA, Killah Priest, Tragedy Khadafi, Talib Kweli, Timbo King, Inspectah Deck, Prodigal Sunn & more), a line up from Hell Razah Music, Inc, (GGO Ghetto Govt Officialz Hell Razah, Automatik Greatness, Queen the Prophet, Judah Priest & more), Brooklyn Zu (Rain the Quiet Storm, Judah Priest, Sneak Vandel, & more), TMF (Tommy Whispers & Kryme Life), Moon Crickets (Lord Fury, Killah Priest, & DJ Merciless), various underground heavyweights, and some remixes.

I was reading an article recently where French Montana made a comment about how all of the “lyrical emcees” he knew are broke. When Hip-Hop first caught fire, it was because there was no industry involved.Hip-Hop had something the industry did not and in the beginning, the industry was at Hip-Hop’s mercy. Hip-Hop is a culture. Hip-Hop has always represented a hope that poor people could make it. The music contained knowledge, stories, struggles, that is Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop is not, nor will it ever be about people making music about how much money they have and you don’t. Let that sink in, most of the world gives their money to people who rap about them spending your money. What happened? Money, greed, corruption.

Good news though, people are tired of corruption and Hip-Hop lives. You are formally invited to take a free tour through the Museum of Hip-Hop (Hosted by GGO ‘s own DJ FLIPCYDE / Wu-Tang DJs) On behalf of Hell Razah, Hell Razah Music, Inc. we are proud to call the Museum of Hip-Hop a product of Hell Razah Music, Inc. and even prouder that Sneak Vandel & the NJ GGO Chapter is part of our family.
