MIDI MAFIA

It was a personal thrill of mine to have MIDI MAFIA on the show this week. If you don’t know this production duo, you should. They have produced jams with 50 Cent such as 21 Questions, and have obtained huge success licensing their urban tracks to Film & TV through their MADE series with Extreme Music. Have a listen as Dirty Swift, Bruce Waynne, and our host chop it up.
