PRLog - Aug. 29, 2012 - ATLANTA -- Atlanta, GA August 30, 2012 - - Atlanta rapper and producer MDP is set to open for Maybach Music artist Rockie fresh on the Atlanta leg of his Electric Highway Tour at Vinyl, Saturday, September 8, at 7:30 pm. He will be performing songs from his newly released album "Turn", with accompaniment from drummer Daniel Levi, son of former Atlanta Symphony Orchestra conductor Yoel Levi. This will mark MDP's largest show since his recent return from Beijing, China, where "Turn" was produced and recorded.
MDP’s song, "City is My Earth", was one of the top three downloads in the recent "Dodge: Inspired by You" competition. He was initially chosen to participate in the competition along with 99 other urban artists out of thousands for a chance to be featured in a national Dodge commercial.
After abandoning a career on Wall Street, MDP relocated to Beijing with the intent to produce and record an album, allowing himself to be inspired musically by his complete immersion into Chinese culture. After completing his debut effort, he toured China with a 4 piece band, gaining media attention and notoriety within expat and local hip-hop social circles. This attention eventually lead to an offer to host an internationally broadcast viral video review program at a Chinese television network, which he accepted. His return to Atlanta marks the beginning of MDP's quest to perform for audiences in the United States and globalize his unique brand of hip hop.

What people are saying about the MDP:

He gave up his Wall Street job and headed to China to start a career as a recording artist." — Sony music independent blog Zomba.in
"It’s interesting, original and different, and I think that’s what, in the end, will separate him from other hip-hop artists." — Noreen Lewis Cochran, Sandy Springs Neighbor
"Put some funk, punk, hip-pop together, Love's Tourettes rock it out." — Michelle Dai, Beijinger
"An explosive show that gets the crowd from quiet to rowdy in no time." — City Weekend Editor's Pick
