We’re not sure why we haven’t seen a press release or a blog about this yet, but let it be know that after years putting in work on NYC’s underground, Mr. Mecc has finally dropped his debut album, I Can Explain! For those of y’all who weren’t aware, Mecc is a long-time QN5-affiliate who’s appeared on countless cameos and rocked many a show with the crew – so we consider him family around here! It’s awesome to finally see him drop a proper release after all this time. If you wanna know more, you can follow him @MrMecc on all the socials or check out Episode 15 of the Tacos & Chocolate Milk Podcast.
I Can Explain is basically everything Mecc is about, from lockeroom-style breakdowns of his latest conquests and rowdy live show anthems to introspective essays on his daily grind and failed relationships. The album features cameos from Black Milk, Bishop Lamont and more! We don’t have the production credits, so we’re not sure who did the music, but once we know, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, please show your support for one of NYC’s best live entertainers.

Built To Fade – “Willie Sutton” [DIR: Kno & Nathan Corrona] | BUY NOW @: [iTUNES]
Hooray for new side projects! We’ve known about this one for a while (because we’re cool like that), but the cat is finally out of the bag as QN5’s superproducer, Kno, has created a new project to be known as Built To Fade, which features vocals by Seattle songstress Zoe Wick & Virginia’s Dane Ferguson and the incomparable Anna Wise (Sonnymoon).
The Kno & Nathan Corrona-directed clip for “Willie Sutton” is the first single taken from the forthcoming debut album, To Dust – set for release via APOS Music on 11.12.13. Here, Kno’s burnt spaghetti western-laced break beat fusion provides a properly slow-roasted sound bed for Wick’s twangy fragility and Wise’s sultry listlessness. (Wick & Wise!). Needless to say, this one’s an absolute ringer and fans of Portishead, Sneaker Pimps or U.N.K.L.E. have now been put on notice.
Stay tuned as we bring you more BTF insider info and news tidbits as November 12 approaches!
Produced & Directed by: Deacon The Villain
The second single from Natti’s ‘Still Motion’ gets the visual treatment. Watch as Natti, Sha Stimuli & Substantial reluctantly admire the drug game, the music industry and the institution of education. Three systems that, more often than not, prey on it’s participants and are specifically designed for them to fail.
Deacon The Villain handles production duties behind the boards and the lens on this one. Enjoy!
This week, the fellas chop it up re; Taco Robbery, Drake’s Blackcent, Mani-Pedi’s and the color “Mavoon”. (Recorded 10.07.13). Don’t forget to send your questions and comments to tacos[at]qn5.com, tweet us @tacmpodcast and be sure to rate/comment us on iTunes!
