Brooklyn born and bred hip hop artist, The Bad Seed, was a part of the mega underground New York record label, Makin’ Records, who’s roster included the late Pumpkinhead aka PH (RIP), What? What? aka Jean Grae, Natural Resource, and PH’s group O.B.S. along with Seed’s longtime friend Meat Pie aka Magnum P. Seed then went on to work with VA producer Nottz (find out how they met in the interview).
In early 2000s, the pair (Seed X Nottz) dropped two classic hip hop records: “For The Kids” and “Uhhnnh”, the latter sold 27,000 units. It was also placed on Funkmaster Flex’s Gold album, ‘The Mix Tape, Vol. IV’. After signing to Warner Bros, his album with production by Nottz, Midi Mafia, Rick Rock, Rockwilder, and Megahurtz never saw the light of day. The label backing never hindered Seed from making moves, so music was still made over the years. The albums ‘Dirty Urine’, ‘Intelligently Ignant’ and 2016’s ‘Coreyography’ are all available on all digital platforms.
The duo Seed X Nottz reunited to bring us their new banging project entitled ‘No Way In Hell‘ — out now! Without furthur ado, get the popcorn, scroll down, and enjoy our video interview with the witty Bad Seed.
