[Hot New Music!] DJ M.O.E. – Brolic Files Vol. 1 Mixtape

The Roundtable Empire’s official DJ, DJ M.O.E. (Money Over Everything), drops off his debut mixtape Brolic Files Vol. 1

The new project touts over 25 bangers that include all-new music and exclusives from your favorite Hip Hop artists.

“All you have to do is hit play and the cd takes it from there,” said Ron Fisher, The Roundtable Empire’s Editor-in-Chief/Owner. “This is the type of mixtape that is good from the beginning to the end…it never eases up.”

Contact us today to get your copy of DJ M.O.E.’s Brolic Files Vol. 1.

“My skill level is a little more advanced than the next,” DJ M.O.E. said. “When you pay somebody to do a party for you, you want that person to actually DJ and not just press a button and let a playlist rock while he’s drinking and enjoying the party like he’s one of the guest, I have a problem with that, it’s actually a pet peeve of mine — I think that’s what sets me a part — I’m not your jukebox DJ.”

“I wan’t my mixtapes to be timeless, so I do this like the DJ’s I idolize and look up to. When DJ’s like Kid Capri, Brucey B, and Ron G came into the game, they changed the game, and that’s what I’m trying to do — I’m trying to change the game.”

(Exclusive Interview) Hanz On Drops New Music and Talks About his Relationship With the Wu-Tang Clan [Hip Hop News Now]

Staten Island emcee Hanz On is working hard to rejuvenate Hip Hop and supply listeners with that vintage New York sound, all while focusing on his label Hanz On Music Entertainment (H.O.M.E.) — which will be releasing Method Man’s new album — Meth Lab 2: The Lithium.

The Wu-Tang Clan affiliated rapper recently dropped his final album, BARCA. The new project is filled completely with heat and features collabs with Ghostface, Raekwon, Method Man, and more.

“One of my personal favorites is ‘Hate My Hood.’ I felt like that song had a lot of substance to it,” Hanz On said. “A lot of this song is reality for me.”

Other stand out tracks on the album include “Smoke Like We Do” and “Big Sky.”

 

Hanz’ relationship with the Wu is evident in his music.

“We grew up together, or they see me grow up,” Hanz said. “When I started doing positive things they came out to support me.”

After several run-ins with the law and multiple brushes with death, Hanz On transitioned from the man he used to be, to the emcee we know today. He credits his transformation to Method Man, Raekwon, and other members of the Wu-Tang Clan.

“You can never take nothing away from the pioneers,” he said, “you always got to show the people who pioneered this shit for you and made the runway for you gratitude and respect.”

Hanz calls his relationship with the Clan a little brother/big brother type of thing.

“The hard part is just you know, as far as the writing aspect of it, trying to keep up,” Hanz said. “It’s hard trying to keep up, but I’m comfortable around dudes.”

The New York native describes his sound as having a New York edge to it.

“I like to say that I have a New York element to me, that’s why I never really tried to explore all the new shit coming out, you know trap music and shit like that,” Hanz said.

“I kind of look at that music as a down south type of sound. I just want to keep that New York edge at all times.”

“Not that I’m talking down on that music, I just can’t get into it. It’s different, but dudes is doing what they do.”

“I can’t get into the throwing my money in the club an shit like that, I can’t get into that whole wave,” he said. “My wave was shoeboxes and safes, and saving your money…that’s where I came up at. So fast-forward now, my shit is about bank accounts and savings and checkings.”

As you can tell by now, Hanz is all about his business. The emcee turned label exec is very optimistic about where Hip Hop is taking him and also the future of his label.

“We got U-God’s son in the studio, we got Meth’s nephews in the studio, so we got a lot coming for the end of this year going into next year,” he said.

He noted that Method Man’s new album, Meth Lab 2: The Lithium, will be dropping on his label, Hanz On Music Entertainment, in August.

“Everybody stay close to me…we got a lot going on.”
