Hollywood hunk, Mark Wahlberg doesn't like to talk about his Hip-Hop past "Please, don't call me Marky Mark," says the star of such films as 'Perfect Storm,' 'Boogie Nights', and 'The Big Hit.' But Mr. Wahlberg's friend and former music producer/songwriter, M.C. Spice remembers the days when he and the actor would sit in studio sessions for countless hours making the perfect album for Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch's debut on Interscope Records.
That album sold over two million copies and the single, "Good Vibrations" was certified platinum, with the follow-up single, "Wild Side" reaching gold status. The two number one chart toppers were written by M.C. Spice, one of Boston's veteran rappers who came up through Hip-Hop's rites of passage via 'battles', deejaying and house party promotions.
A fixture in the Boston music scene, and an elder statesmen to many up and coming rappers in the area, M.C. Spice founded Dudley Station records last year and is set to release the labels' first album later this spring. The album, NU BLOOD is completely written by and starring, M.C. Spice himself. With melodic piano rifts and driving baselines, the thought-provoking, "My Mind Is A Battlefield" sheds light on the Bipolar issue, and delves into the mind of a person afflicted with this baffling chemical imbalance of the brain.
Love songs and party songs give rap music a new image, as M.C. Spice bobs and weaves through pages in is heart with military precision. The label, Dudley Station Records, symbolizes the Boston Transportation Authority's 'orange line' section of Boston where the rapper grew up. "We would all meet up at Dudley Station to go to a movie, a concert, a party or even a fight. It was like the common meeting place for all the kids from all the area. The Orange Line connected every borough together. That's what Dudley Station represents. The connection; the common bond," touts M.C. Spice.
