I take a trip to Dundeal Studios on a rainy Monday in Seattle Washington. “I’m here to see Macc Dundee,” I tell the man at the gate looking my Geo Metro over. “Hello, Gossip Pimp.com we’ve been expecting you.” Security is tight right now with the rerelease of Macc Dundee’s 4th album titled “Motivation: Reloaded”. The album is a work of art and now with a few remixes and bonus tracks. Maybe the best album from Hip Hop We had ever heard. Hip Hop albums have always remained a favorite of mine time and time again. Finding a good album in this era from start to finish with no skippers is a triumph. Hard to find. I wanted to know more about the man behind the music. The Macc is back again.
Macc greets me after my long journey from the gate to the front door opening it and it being Amber Rose smiling at me with her new baby. The outside is gated and bated. Perfect scenery with water fountains and flowing waters into pools with gold dolphins singing songs from Macc Dundee. A basketball court with seating for fans to come and pay to watch sometimes Shaq and sometimes Bigfoot.
There are rumors in the air that Macc Dundee is out of retirement and this is his last rerelease album. Why not retire now?
African Children needed help. “We Installed clean water units for safe filtered water. Kept standards up and kept people hydrated. we can change the world,” Macc told a close friend some 3 weeks ago. “Nutrition was a key to a child’s development.”
Macc continued to tell gossip pimp how we can save the African child. He stops and pauses. “Let’s go for a walk” he continued “We can answer some of your questions along the way”.
We walk over to his tennis court and play. Macc Beats me in under 2 minutes. Game set match. It was not pretty at all.
Have you always been good at sports?
Yeah, It was always a competition between me and my brothers growing up.
One of his brothers is R and B singer-songwriter J-Shep. The two have collaboration seven times in the last few years. the new song is “Fly 4 Ever” in which Dundee and J-Shep both wrote. Dundeal Entertainment is Dundee’s label that he has yet to sign many artists.
It’s all about quality control. Everyone wants to make a million dollars and sell out areas. They just don’t always set up and perform well. I hear a lot of artists tell me they are the next big thing in rap. The only problem is they don’t even have music online.
Macc hands me a cold beer and we sip and talk some more about the new album and who is on it. he tells me all hitters from the northwest. Of course, Yukmouth is from the Oakland area. Seattle artists A-Train Gang, Mista Mutt, Sticking Biz, B.I. The G, Phantasy Reighn, Kemo, Young Flames and some secret artists to be announced on a remix album.
What can we anticipate from you in the coming year?
Solving world problems on a grand scale is key. Africa will be a better place for the kids.
