Cormega is an MC from Queens Bridge Projects, home of some of the most influential Hip-Hop acts ever. In the mid 80’s Marley Marl and the Juice Crew were dominating the Hip-Hop landscape. What many people don’t know is that Marley recorded many of his classic records in his Apartment in Queensbridge Projects, and many of the Juice Crew members MC Shan, Roxanna Shante, Tragedy and others are from Queensbridge.
Although most people are familiar with the Mega reference in Nas’s song, Cormega’s first time on wax was in 1989, MC Cor aka Cormega as a guest on Legendary Queens Bridge Block Party DJ – DJ Hot Day on the Tuff City released Going Straight Up featuring early Bridge MC Arkim and Shahid
Originally supposed to be a member of the super group The Firm headed by Nas, he found himself replaced by fellow Queens MC Nature, and his is debut album release postponed. His first album The Realness was released in (2001), an experience Mega feels is a blessing in disguise, as it prepared him for his future as an Independent artist.
The show is exclusive to UK Hip-Hop Culture Station Sensei.fm
For much of the early 90’s, as Nas and Mobb Deep were blowing up, Cormega was incarcerated. Cormega should be known alongside the mid 90’s next generation of new talent, OC, Keith Murray, Mic Geronimo, AZ, Nas, Mobb Deep and others who succeeded in bringing back NY flavoured Street Stories and sophisticated rhymes.
