ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In these times, rappers have become bogged down in a quagmire of wackery, selling the culture short in order to make the dollars offered by the mainstream. Being original is no longer important and cats have become content to be like the next man, repeating the same old tales of jewels, cars, and street life. Not only have the rhymes become devoid of substance, but the production has suffered as well. Bounce has taken over and beat makers seem reluctant to tap into the full spectrum of musical possibilities.

Like the prophets of the Old Testament, now comes an MC to remind his peers, and heads, what hip-hop truly is. Madgesdiq comes to lead the people away from the hyperactive, halting flow favored by the many and turn them back the right way with his distinctive monotone, effortlessly delivering ill poems.

Madgesdiq has laid in the cut, observing hip-hop's decline over the past few years. Putting the pen to his pad, he has created lyrical concepts that address hip-hop's ills. He also delivers tongue-lashings to sucka MCs with witty braggadocio rhymes, thus the alias Mr. Brag-Art. Madgesdiq manipulates any and all topics as he skillfully combines TV images, academic principles and life observations into entertaining songs.

Madgesdiq prefers to rock rhymes over music that expresses his varied tastes. Jumbo Da Garbageman and Rev. Sheinz from the Lifesavas, along with a new, young producer, Mr. Brawn, have provided Madgesdiq with a sonic backdrop that seduces heads to nod.

Mr. Brag-Art plans to shatter another popular trend with his debut album. Going against the trend of featuring guests on almost every song, Madgesdiq is going solo on his joint, with a little assistance from his Highbrow partner-in-rhyme, Mr. Bowlz. "It's easy to go out and get big names, people who are already established," the up-and-coming MC says, "but fuck that. I want people to recognize what I do first."

Once heads overcome the shock from being reminded what real hip-hop is, they will no doubt appreciate Madgesdiq's efforts. Dedicating himself to bringing integrity back to the art form, Madgesdiq is sure to snag the attention of those thirsty for good music. It is pleasant to hear an artist devoted to moving the crowd and not so concerned about cashing the big checks. However, that doesn't mean he's in it for free. It's just that money is not his first priority. "I wanna be the person that cures the mic aches and still gets the dough," Madgesdiq states with complete earnestness. "Better brace yourself for what cometh."

True intelligent hip-hop
Madgesdiq's album "The Rebirth", with his unique lyrical flow and highbrow rhymes, comes like a fresh drink of water to the barren lands of intelligent, meaningful hip-hop.

I first caught his act in the fall of 2002 at a local hip-hop showcase and was very impressed, enough to head straight to the merch booth in search of his album. I picked up The Rebirth (graciously signed by the man himself) and at the end of the night rushed to my car to drop it in the CD player -- Madgesdiq's recorded tracks keep the energy and flow of his live set with just the right amount of studio processing to sound great in my stereo at home and in my ride.

An excellent debut by a quality local artist, and I recommend it to any true hip-hop fan who is tired of the "bling-bling" lyrics and over-produced beats of most of today's popular rap.

Great music is what Madgesdiq is all about!
First, I loved the show Madgesdiq (and his crew) put up here in Boise, ID recently. And I love his CD (The Rebirth), which I received on time and in good condition. Point me to some other great music I can buy from you guys. Cheers!

Rep P.O.
I have been trying to find this album for almost a year, I heard it at a party in Portland, I live in VA now and am in the navy, I want to bring some northwest shit to the east coast and let them know what what a true lyrisist sounds like. Buy this album!

Hunter Jackson

great album, one of top projects of 2002-2003.
What a great day in Hip-Hop to see an act like Madgesdiq grace the stage. A mix of melodic/symphonic beats creativly mixed with the slow, raspy voice of a true rap poet. Those tired of the same Hip-Hop of old, will be thoroughly pleased with the creativity that Madgesdiq brings to the table. Both Madgesdiq and Speechless are new to the music biz, but show much promise to become the new voices of hip-hop, both lyricaly and musically. Go out and get this album now, you won't be disapointed.

BREATH OF FRESH AIR
MAN, YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR AN MC TO COME ALONG TO CHANGE ALL THIS BULLSH*T HIP HOP OUT THERE TODAY. CHECK THIS ALBUM OUT, I NEED ANOTHER ALBUM SOON MADGESDIQ, LETS BRING THE MUSIC BACK TO WHERE IT STARTED.

Erica Lynn Nord

Madgesdiq is definitely not a nursery rhyme rapper. He has an incredible vocabul
This CD is extreme mixture of upbeat tempos to deep-rooted beats. This is a must have CD for the TRUE hip hop lovers out there (Very much unlike radio BS talking about how much money rappers' have and bitches). Madgesdiq shines with extraordinary lyricist abilities, the word mastermind would be appropriate.

CHRIS CO
