InI Mighty Lockdown


InI MLD brings hardcore conscious music from the underground to the masses who have been subjected to dysfunctional music for far too long. In this high-tech wasteland, music has become a distraction rather than a tool for upliftment and satisfaction...well, all bad things must come to an end. Thus the emergence of InI Mighty Lockdown--King Negus and Jolomite, survivors of the fittest, a fixture of the New York Underground Hip-Hop scene since the early nineties. Read more on Last.fm
InI MLD brings hardcore conscious music from the underground to the masses who have been subjected to dysfunctional music for far too long. In this high-tech wasteland, music has become a distraction rather than a tool for upliftment and satisfaction...well, all bad things must come to an end. Thus the emergence of InI Mighty Lockdown--King Negus and Jolomite, survivors of the fittest, a fixture of the New York Underground Hip-Hop scene since the early nineties. Starting with the groundbreaking InI single “Faking Jax”, produced by DJ Pete Rock and Mighty Lockdown's weekly underground performances in New York's East Village they made a recognizable mark on Hip Hop's conscious scene.

In late 1995 InI & MLD was reborn as InI MLD. From that time on the group has continued to be successful even without the release of a full-length album. Although life has taken previous members to other pursuits, Jolomite and Negus continue the flow of energy that InI MLD originally created back in their living room in the nineties. Their infectious beats that combine Hip Hop and Rastafarian philosophies continue to keep heads bopping wherever InI MLD is heard. InI MLD's label Trus Fund Inc.

is known for their multimedia shows in New York. The show Flare: African Articulations (1 & 2) sold out two years back to back. The popular Rap Showcase became an ongoing bi-monthly open mic event that drew both well-known artists and beginners for two years straight. They also sparked the hot Authentic I-Wear Garments T-shirt line. Making a statement by mostly wearing I-Wear clothing during performances, InI MLD expands upon the message of self-reliance that is a staple of their lyrics.

The popularity of I-Wear has reached Rolling Stone magazine, which featured an interview with Lauryn Hill wearing an Authentic I-Wear Garments T-shirt. These lions, pulling influences from their native Jamaican and Haitian backgrounds and Rastafarian livity, have given the sound of InI MLD a raw uniqueness. Their politically charged rhymes include English, French, and Creole, to create energized performances that appeal to many diverse audiences. From rocking live with the instrumental band Survival Soundz, to performing and hosting shows with Dead Prez,The Roots,Yejide The Night Queen,Scienz of Life, Breeze Evah Flowing, C RayzWalz, Juggaknots, Mr. Len, The Welfare Poets, and other live musicians; and through their constant push to develop Hip Hop to higher heights with reality lyrics; InI Mighty Lockdown are truly carrying the names of their LP's "The Keepers of The Flame" and "Conquerors"; dominating the new consciousness of Hip Hop.
