It was just six months ago that Born I Music rapped that he had “old Mobb Deep in his ipod shuffle” in his groundbreaking “All I Want is You” Freestyle. As fate would have it, 6 months later, the world has both Born and Mobb Deep together in the scorching new single, “Limelight”. Produced by DC’s J-Scrilla, ‘Limelight’s heavy drums and cinematic samples let Born, Havoc and Prodigy remain true to form, trading crazy heavy bars over Scrilla’s paranoid, hypnotic production. “Limelight” serves as the lead single for Heyday Footwear’s “Heyday Mixtape” (it was the Mixtape’s co-exec producer Jules Renae who brought Born & Mobb Deep together, clearly a wise choice!). The Heyday Mixtape drops May 31, available via TheHeydayMixtape.com. Get that!
“Limelight” written by Born I Music & Mobb Deep, Produced by J-Scrilla, Mixed & Engineered by AJ Halpern/Monomental Music Group. Sponsored by Heyday Footwear. GET THIS SONG BY DOWNLOADING THE HEYDAY MIXTAPE #ItsNotHype
What’s poppin y’all? Well if you’ve been following my tweets recently you know that an exciting partnership has just taken place between your’s truly and an infinitely awesome, high-fashion footwear company. Namely, Heyday Footwear
Boston-based model, fashionista and music industry consultant, Jules Renae, who was recently cast as a lead in my upcoming video for “Time”, knew about my fetish for nu-fashion hightop footwear and thought that Heyday and I would be a good fit. She couldn’t have been more right. Jules introduced me to Darin Hager, Design Guru and Chief Everything Officer at Heyday Footwear. After a few tweets and a phonecall, the deal was sealed. A few days later, the official announcement was made on Heyday’s blog
“Heyday Footwear newest Brand Ambassador Born Infinite is the very embodiment of Heyday Footwear Shoe Math design process…different trends mixed together to create something entirely new and original…”
If there was ever a match made in heaven, this is it. I mean, look at these kicks…
Catch me rockin these in my next video
I’d like to take this moment to thank the great folks @ Heyday Footwear for believing in me and my movement. Stay tuned to my upcoming videos, photoshoots and general appearances for the latest shoe math designs from Heyday. This is how its done, kids. Let’s get it.
Catch me in a pair of all-white Heyday Super Shifts in the upcoming video for my single Memory Lane. Am I the first rapper in my city with a shoe deal? The answer is “yes”. Shoutout to Heyday Footwear. G&D wins again. Let’s go.

“To say the things he truly feels, and not the words of one who kneels.”
The closing words to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” perfectly sum up Born I Music’s latest release “RE:BORN (Chairman of the Board)“.
This is truly a project for all seasons. “RE:BORN” finds Born I completely in his element as he weaves through an incredible collection of hip hop, dubstep and soul classics with impeccable timing, wordplay and delivery.
“RE:BORN” gives us Born in a new phase of personal, lyrical and artistic development. Add that to Kanye’s “Runaway”, Joker’s “Tron”, Jay Electronica’s “Ghost of Christopher Wallace” or Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat”, lace samples of Frank Sinatra & Rat Pack folklore throughout and you’ve got an experience designed to last a lifetime. This isn’t your regular mixtape. This is rebirth. Every track you’ll hear, including the artist himself has been transformed, upgraded, perfected. In a word, Re:Born.
