Noisemaker Media, 410 Entertainment, M-Tri and DJ Leecy T Present “Suicidal Hype Shit”. Suicidal Hype Shit offers up a dose of classic boom bap as a remedy for the condition that the state of Hip Hop is in. The duo of M-Tri and DJ Leecy T is reminiscent of the pairing that Guru and DJ Premier formed with Gangstarr, as an Emcee and DJ embodies the very essence of Hip Hop music.
