Hip Hop careers have the allure of world travel, adulation and (hopefully) money but one thing they don’t have is a health plan. As our Hip Hop pioneers age, more often they are finding themselves in precarious situations. Jimmy Spicer, one of the first MCs to release a rap song on wax, has been diagnosed with advanced brain and lung cancer. Fellow pioneering Hip Hop artist Kurtis Blow shared the news on Twitter roughly two weeks ago.
According to the GoFundMe page, Spicer is currently undergoing radiation treatment for his brain tumor but needs chemotherapy for the tumor in his lung. So far, he’s raised less than $1,500 out of his $100,000 goal. Spicer dropped “Adventures Of Super Rhymes” in 1980 and laid out the blueprint for MCs like Slick Rick and Dana Dane. With his storytelling raps, he captivated listeners with his wild tales of life in Brooklyn.
Spicer’s music has been sampled by numerous Hip Hop artists. Wu-Tang Clan famously sampled Spicer’s “Money (Dollar Bill Y’all) for the classic cut “C.R.E.A.M.” and Montell Jordan used snippets of the same track for his 1995 hit “This Is How We Do It.”
Kanye West, MC Lyte, Busta Rhymes, 2Pac, Warren G and The D.O.C. have also taken a few notes from Spicer to create some of their music.
But in terms of solo output, Spicer has retreated from the music industry for the better part of three decades.
According to author Mark Skillz, he simply wanted to focus on his family.
“In 25 to 30 years, he hasn’t really done an interview,” Skillz tells HipHopDX. “Jimmy is a real mercurial dude. When I finally got Jimmy on the phone — I went through his daughter, his producer and Count Coolout and finally through Facebook, I got in touch with Jimmy — he said, ‘Ok I’ll do your interview.’
“We did like a two or three hour interview. Around 2010, I went to Brooklyn and met him and hung out with him. Jimmy was 53 at the time. I never met a 53-year-old like Jimmy Spicer. This dude showed up at the crib at 2 a.m. ready to go club hopping!”
He continues, “I’m around 45 and so I’m like me and clubs — that’s been over — but not Jimmy. Not Jimmy. That dude can dance. Most rappers — the overwhelming amount of rappers — cannot dance. Most MCs can’t dance. It wasn’t until the ’90s when you saw Big Daddy Kane, Heavy D or MC Hammer who could dance. But Jimmy can.”

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
