 "RUN" (Raps United Nation) is the brainchild of M.O.P.’s Billy Danze who throughout the course of his illustrious career and years of extensive international touring could not help but notice and acknowledge how many talented artists he met during his travels who simply lacked a platform to be heard. Who better then a fellow artist to spearhead the charge and give them that platform, as Billy explains “As an artist I understand the frustration.  There are so many artists out there that possess the talent of being able to produce and record good music. They are determined; they have the drive and dedication, but feel as if no one notices. I’ve seen and heard what’s out there from an artistic level.  These artists need to be heard and have a united voice. I am very passionate about giving them that opportunity and will do anything in my power to help those that really want to win.”

The Music industry has undeniably changed and evolved and artists have been forced to either adapt with it, or go the way of the dinosaur. While the Internet and the proliferation of social media platforms are viable assets for new artists desperately looking for exposure, using those mediums alone is still equivalent to trying to “catch lighting in a bottle.” Billy Danze’s ambitious plans for “RUN” are to create an army of incredible artists from all corners of the globe and to unify and raise awareness for them by creating projects which are loud enough to be heard by the masses; as Billy details “my aim is to get every talented artist a deal.  Support on a globalized scale is all an artist really needs or could ask for. I have contacted all my resources and they in return have done the same.  A vital key to success in this business is alliance; and I personally have a team in every corner of the world. We can build a team of thousands and support each other.”

There is no disputing the artistic contributions Billy Danze has contributed to the culture as a member of M.O.P., yet, while still in its early infancy, his greatest contribution may still lay in front of him as the founder of “RUN,” as he eloquently states “as a fellow artist, these projects will enable me to be a vital cog in a family of worthy artists that simply need a platform and a voice and to oversee that lends the potential to be the biggest accomplishment of my career.  From a business perspective, I believe “RUN” (Raps United Nation”) is a vehicle the industry is desperately lacking.  The way to find new talent is to go get it.  Industry executives no longer believe in the artist, or artist development, how can the industry grow if we don’t allow new artists to showcase their talent?”

First Wave will be released on 2-14-2012!

New York, NY - January 30, 2012 - MC Mitchski the Rappin' Comedian has been in the music industry for some time now, starting out as a rapper and recording underground classics like "Brooklyn Blew up The Bridge" and "Kool DJ Red Alert is a Great Man." He has appeared on various projects including DJ Red Alert's We Can Do This, as well as the world famous book Ego Trip's Book Of Rap Lists and its companion album the Ego Trip presents The Big Playback.

Throughout his career, MC Mitchski has held various positions in the music industry working at music retail, music distribution, and at indie and major record labels.  After years of experience in the business, MC Mitchski launches his own Management and Digital Distribution company, The Scorpio Collective, Inc. "I'm finding a ton of talent out there that I'd like to help and I'm in a great position to do so. I'm not just looking for anything; I'm looking for diversity, creativity and projects with an angle."

The Scorpio Collective's first signing is a pop/electronic band from Sweden named FULKULTUR. Their song "The Ugly Dance" has become a huge viral success from the interactive website The site allows users to put their face on an "Ugly Dancer," create their very own dance to "The Ugly Dance" song and share it with their friends. The song is currently available to buy on iTunes. The Scorpio Collective is also working with an Asian, female, hip hop producer Kay Kay On The Beatz who will be putting a hip hop twist on "The Ugly Dance."  

The Scorpio Collective recently signed comedian/rapper Mr. EBT who has been stirring up controversy with his hit song "My EBT (Swipe)." Mr. EBT puts a comedic spin on the abusive use of a food stamp card, but some believe he is taking a stab at the welfare system.  He's recently appeared on NY Daily News, Fox News and RT America  to discuss the controversial song. Mr. EBT will be releasing "My EBT (Swipe)" and his new single "Dollar Fries" on i-Tunes February 14th.  

MC Mitchski also releases his own album tomorrow, Laughing All the Way to the Bank through his new venture. The album features the classics "Brooklyn Blew up The Bridge" and "Kool DJ Red Alert is a Great Man," along with a few songs he used to perform at his live shows including "Goya & Freeda." "I can't believe I'm putting my old school music out at this point, it's kinda crazy! I feel like I've come full-cirlce."
