Atlanta Rapper Rides Horse Through Midtown in New Music Video "City is My Earth"
Atlanta, GA February 19, 2013 - - Atlanta rapper and producer MDP is set to release his new music video "City is My Earth", directed by J.KAP, R.i.T.E. Media Group. It's a horse stealing, chicken chasing, breast-milk drinking journey from a country farm to the middle of the big city. This song was one of the top three urban music downloads in the recent "Dodge: Inspired by You" competition.
From Atlanta by way of Beijing and New York, MDP takes time on his tortuously titled first release "Turn" to reflect on a life of constant change. After leaving a career on Wall Street, he 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 MDP:
"While many youngsters could kill for a chance to join the Wall Street white collar crowd and get all the perks that come with that, MDP is a dude who is crazy enough to do just the opposite. 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
