M.M.M.F.D. (Make My Mutha Fuckin Day) is a dark hip hop duo that consists of underground veterans Scum and Insane Poetry, both currently signed with LSP (Lyrikal Snuff Productionz). They have 3 albums out as a group (plus over 25 solo releases between the 2 of them) and are touring in support of their newest installment "Butcher Brothaz" which drops September 2018.
SCUM, a Russian-American rapper, based out of Denver, Colorado is one of the most recognizable names in today's horrorcore. He's been active in the scene since 2000 when he founded Lyrikal Snuff Productionz (currently LSP, LLC), a record label which became home to some classic underground acts such as Dark Half, Liquid Assassin, Insane Poetry, and many more and is responsible for more then 70 releases worldwide to date. Scum is known for his dark, ultra violent, and horror themed lyrics that he uses in conjunction with less traditional, bouncy and upbeat instrumentals which define him as the pioneer of the gorehop sub-genre. Throughout his career, Scum released 11 solo albums, 4 group releases (LnG, 4Horsemen, and most recently MMMFD, a duo project with Insane Poetry which is due for their 3rd release in 2018) and just released the long anticipated 3rd installment to his highly successful Mr. Zipperface album series in January of 2018 followed by a coast to cast tour in support of that release. Scum's albums feature most of the underground heavyweights in this genre and he has completed 15 Nationwide Tours, headlining 10 of them, co-headlining 3, and supporting 2. With almost 2 decades under his belt in the rap game, Scum and LSP have built a worldwide cult following and truly became a household name in the world of horrorcore. Its almost impossible to attend a major event in this genre and not run into people with their trademarked saw and axe tattoos, charms, and various merchandise representing the LSP brand. With a new album, new and carefuly picked live set, extremely intense and aggressive stage presence, bloody horror props, and offensive, disturbing, yet addicting merchandise, you don't want to miss Scum's next show when he is performing in your area!
INSANE POETRY was one of the first horrorcore rap groups before the term "horrorcore" was coined to emerge in hip-hop in (1988) featured members( Cyco, Emdee and DJ Streek). They debuted with the underground magnum opus and critically praised full length cd "Grim Reality " (1992) Blending horror flick-influenced surrealism with graphic, California-styled gangsta raps, the Los Angeles outfit had developed its own cult following. Members of Insane Poetry came and went, but lead MC/producer Cyco (born Andrew Holiman) remained as the constant, creative drive maintaining the group's presence as horrorcore hip-hop became a mostly underground phenomenon in the new millennium. Insane Poetry teamed up with west coast veterans Rodney O and Joe Cooley to write and perform on their national release " Get Ready to Roll " which featured Insane Poetry and later signing with Nastymix records(home of Sir Mix-a-lot) based out of Seattle. Grim Reality debuted on the Billboard music charts at 98 and went on to sell over 45,000 cds before soundscan and over 75,000 cds sold till this date. Despite the favorable reception of the album and its cult-favorite single "How Ya Gonna Reason with a Psycho," Nastymix, whose roster was mainly club- and party-rap acts, didn't know what to do with the horrorcore group's maniacal image. Regardless, Nastymix folded, prompting IP (with Em-Dee now replaced by Pope) to record their second album, Blacc Plague (1996), for React/Polygram. Due to similar disagreements with Polygram in terms of promotion and support, IP departed the label. In that same year Insane Poetry appeared in a DVD called " Faces of Death 2000 " Cyco then linked up with Vanilla Ice and was responsible for writing over 10 songs on his release " Mind Blowin " and wrote 4 songs and appeared on " Hard To Swallow " a mosh up cd of rap and rock produced by Ross Robinson. The most notible song written that appears on both Bi-Polar and Faith in Chaos is " OKS " Original Killa Shit which V-Ice still performs today. Except for a few 12"s and a three-track EP, Let 'Em Know (1999), IP was largely quiet during the late '90s. But as the L.A. underground hip-hop scene started to take off in the early 2000s, Cyco resurrected the group's name, collaborating with M-Boogie, Dilated Peoples, and Wake Up Show turntablist DJ Revolution. With Cyco as the only remaining member, IP issued Faith in Chaos in 2003, followed by Fallen from Grace in 2007. In 2008, Insane Poetry signed a one-album deal with Never So Deep Records and released a ghetto metal cd named " Cyco-The Snuff Reels " out on Never So Deep Records infusing Cyco's dark lyricism over death-metal hip-hop beats produced by Sutter Kain (aka DJ Bless). In 2009, Insane Poetry released a re-mixed and re-mastered version of Blacc Plague, entitled the "Deadly Virus Edition." Presently, Insane Poetry is signed with Lyrikal Snuff Productions (LSP) and released " The Best of Insane Poetry", "Creative Destruction", "Killaborations","Violent Art", and "Snuff Reels - The Directors Cut" to date while actively touring the nation solo and with labelmate Scum as MMMFD.
Scum
Scum
Scum's legacy began in 1995 when he moved from Moscow, Russia to Denver, Colorado. The motivation behind his departure from Russia was the mandatory draft that he was facing and the possibility of getting shot at for 2 years while making practically no money. That option didn't appeal to him so Scum had to stick to his motto – "If you can't get paid for it, it's not worth doing" and shake the spot. Shortly after arriving to Colorado he discovered the world of underground rap, being heavily influenced by such extreme rap acts as Esham, Doomsday Productions, Ganxsta Nip, Brotha Lynch Hung and Insane Poetry and Natas. He began writing rhymes in Russian while trying to get his English vocabulary up to the level, which would allow him to write raps in it. In 1998, he founded DL (Denver Lowlifes) with DJ Sevill and in 1999 they released their 6 track "On the Edge" demo, which was recorded at Wicked Creations Studio. Shortly after the demo was out, Scum was joined by Kasper of EWT to form LnG in 2000. Lyrikal Snuff Productionz was born. While working on their debut album, Scum was also involved in another horrorcore project – The Underground Cult, which broke up shortly after recording their "Insanity" Demo. Finally after many delays LnG's "Lyrikal Snuff" which was scheduled for release in 2001 was released in early 2002. As soon as it hit the stores, the drama began. Due to its graphic and violent content the CD was banned by a variety of stores and distribution companies resulting in the duo having a hard time trying to find venues, which would allow them to perform. Due to all those difficulties and the growing tension between Scum and Kasper on the personal level they decided that it was time to go their separate ways and LnG broke up in the fall of 2002 half way through the recording of their sophomore album – "Murderous Intentions." At that point Scum decided to pursue his solo career and after recording the "Solitary Confinement" and "Forced Suicide" demos in the last months of 2002 he hooked up with a local producer named Airtight, who produced his "Lethal Overdose" demo and his debut solo release "Enter the Asylum" which hit the stores in 2003. Later that year, Scum parted ways with Airtight Entertainment and moved on to release his self produced "Violent Verses" CD in 2004. It was time for Scum to hit the stage and that exactly what he did. Gore Hop (the word Scum uses to describe his style) listeners saw Scum performing with a variety of local and out of state acts. From small 21 and up clubs to larger all age venues, Scum did them all. During that time he signed a few local acts to LSP but felt that none of them had the dedication that he was seeking and eventually they were all released from the label. All but one. Borey a.k.a. Red Rhino who was featured on all of Scum's solo releases turned out to be what Scum describes as "Our most deadly lyrical weapon". Scum was so impressed with his skills, both live and in the studio that he went on to engineer and mix Borey's debut CD which was released on Lyrikal Snuff Productions in January of 2006 along with Scum's "Only Bodies Left Behind" CD which got delayed due to its extreme and disturbing artwork being rejected by 3 manufacturers before being pressed by MBC in Canada. "Only Bodies Left Behind" show Scum's tremendous growth as an artist both delivery wise and lyrically. The album features the work of 7 different producers and collaborations with a variety of established underground acts. All 3 of Scum's solo albums along with Borey's "Firzt Impulze" and LnG's "Lyrikal Snuff" are widely distributed in Colorado and in select states as well as online but unfortunately lack the worldwide distribution that is needed to introduce the underground fans all over the world to Scum's disturbing yet creative art. Meanwhile, 2006 is turning out to be a very good year for Scum and the rest of LSP with numerous shows, a variety of compilations and CD's featuring Scum being released, limited but increasing radio play, and an upcoming US Tour which will feature Scum and Borey performing with an undisclosed national act. There are rumors of another act being signed to LSP in the near future. Scum is also scheduled to hit the studio this fall to start recording for his next album and with a steadily growing fan base, increasing CD sales fueled by his dedication, productivity and total lack of sanity during live performances there is no stopping for Scum…not anytime soon! The Era of Dinner's Served is upon us!
Insane Poetry
Insane Poetry
Insane Poetry was one of the original innovators of horrorcore (which the group called the Terrifying Style before the former term took hold), a style of hip-hop that used horror-movie imagery and heavy doses of gore to make social commentary about American society. However, while horrorcore hip-hop went out of favor in the late 1990s, it continues in this vein to the present day.
