Class Is In Session as Madi B Releases "Street GED" On June 5!
May 15, 2007 by cyrrus1

Madi B

The lessons begin when school let's, out as Carson bred rapper Madi B., releases his debut, Street G.E.D., on June 6, 2007.While his hit single "My Money's Long" steadily climbs the top 200 singles chart, Madi B. embraces the opportunity to bring his story to the young ones. In the midst of a high-school tour to promote the Anytime Records release "Street G.E.D." the mindful rapper understands the brevity of the messages in today's hip-hop climate so when the kids get turned on by the seemingly glamorous lyrics of his former lifestyle, he speaks to how the realities of that mind-state got him caught up.

"There are a lot of unfortunate realities in hip-hop music today because this music comes from the heart of the streets" explains Madi B., " These streets breed a lot of different elements some good, some bad; but when your chasing the dollar it's easy to get caught up in the hustle of the fast living and the fast money. It can turn you into someone you never thought you'd be, good or bad unless you gain some perspective."

Madi B's imprint of being an over-achiever was established by his mother; a self made woman who moved her kids here from Sierra Leon for a better life and was able to obtain a double master as a single parent of two. Though he steered clear of gang-life, Madi B. couldn't deny his penchant for chasing that almighty dollar, so while his mother was away at work, he put in work on the streets. As fate would have it, his antics found him missing his senior year of high-school due to a conviction that landed him in jail for 10 months. Knowing he owed his mother more than losing her son to the streets, he refocused his energy to his love of music.

"Street G.E.D." drops science on how it goes down in the life of a hustler. Madi B., like many chose to learn his lesson the hard way, but now when he boasts about his money being long it's because he's making sound decisions with his life and his business; and when his young fans ask him about living the life of a star he lets them know the real.

With party anthems like "Glasses Up" or the bravado of "So Fresh, So Clean", Street G.E.D. cover's the full spectrum of hood life from snitches, and haters to balling out of control.

Street G.E.D. gives a musical dissertation on street life by one of its own. Get ready to be schooled June 5, 2007.

Carson Native Madi-B Gathers Momentum With Hit Single - February 18, 2007 By : Rud

"I am the streets. The streets tell me what to say and I tell y’all" – Madi B

With that in mind we decided to bring the street storyteller from Carson, California to dubcnn to let the world take note of a talented youngster. If experience truly is the best teacher, then the lessons on the lifestyles of the hood-rich and infamous are about to be revealed on the debut offering "Street G.E.D" by Madi B.



The Carson native has taken his education from the streets, the same streets that he has grown up watching the affluent urban community camouflage the mayhem which lurked in its gang riddled cult de sacs. Those same life lessons he has prepared over a soundtrack that has evolved into his debut release "Street G.E.D."

Madi B, born Mammadi Kabba, shortened his name and added the B to stand for Black to represent his respect for the richness in the culture that stems from the roots of his mother’s homeland of Sierra Leone. Madi’s imprint of being an over-achiever was established by his mother, a self made woman who was able to obtain a double masters while being a single parent of two. Madi B, as we menotioned earlier, chose to graduate from the streets. Although he avoided gang-life, Madi B couldn’t deny his desire to chase the almighty dollar, so while his mother was away at work he put in work on the streets. As fate would have it, his antics found him missing his senior year of high-school due to a conviction that landed him in jail for 10 months.

It was during this time, however, he picked up a skill from watching a friend who happened to be locked up at the same time. "My boy was always in there free styling and the more I listened to him the more I felt like I could do it too. I knew once I got out of jail I had to do something different because I knew jail wasn’t a place I ever wanted to go back to," explains Madi

Fresh from lock up, Madi B made sure to go back and get his GED and entered a competition that would change his life forever. Dedicated to his dreams, Madi B’s talent was discovered through an audition held by newly-launched Anytime Records. The company’s founders, Bobby & Monique Evans didn’t hesitate to sign him. "His talent is just undeniable," says Bobby. "He impressed us with his vocal deliver and tone. His style is unique."

Currently making public appearances on a regional high-school promo tour, Madi B can also be found climbing the charts of various record-pool and mix-show charts, with his hit single "My Money’s Long" - a track that we have for exclusive download below. With other notable tracks including Glasses Up and "Unsincerely Yours" Madi B offers a refreshing new vibe to west coast music. In an industry where perspective and identity can be easily lost, Madi B can hold his own.

Madi B - My Money's Long

In related news, Madi B has been invited to perform at the star-studded Checkwriter's NBA All-Star Party Weekend. Madi B will hit the stage today, Sunday, February 18, 2007 at the finale hosted by Lil Wayne and Young Money Entertainment.

If experience truly is the best teacher, then the lessons on the lifestyles of the hood-rich and infamous are about to be revealed on the debut offering "Street G.E.D" by West coast emcee Madi B . This native of Carson California was self-educated by handling his business on the streets of the affluent urban community that camouflaged the mayhem which lurked in its gang riddled cult de sacs. Now he's compiled his life lessons over a slickly produced soundtrack to the streets, and wants the world to take note.
