Mr. Green - 'Live From The Streets' Album Stream & Purchase
News Article: 

Mr. Green presents Live From The Streets, the first ever album of songs from the popular VICE/Noisey series by the same name.

The project features Freddie Gibbs, KRS-One, Matisyahu, Vinnie Paz, Malik B of The Roots Crew, Skrewtape, Hakim Green + new songs from Bodega Bamz and Raz Fresco.

'Live from the Streets' is a video series created by producer Mr. Green and director Sam Lipman-Stern. The series, which airs on Noisey, follows Green globally on a journey meeting interesting people and musicians on the streets. Green samples their music; interviews the street performer; and then turns the sounds into original beats. After the beat is created, he collaborates with one of his favorite rappers to add powerful lyrics to the musical backdrop he and the street musician constructed. Finally, at the end of each episode, Green revisits the people he sampled to play them the final track; often times receiving emotional responses from people who have never heard themselves on recorded audio. The final episodes are a unique hybrid music/video experience.

Mr. Green Talks 'Live From The Streets' On The Library With Tim
News Article: 

This week on The Library with Tim Einenkel, Tim talks to producer, DJ, host, and creator Mr. Green about his web series Live From The Streets (Vice Media Noisey) as well as the album Live From The Streets (Duck Down Records).

What's Mr. Green's artistic attraction to the street musician performancer?

“I love it. I think it's beautiful. If I were more of a traditional musician with instruments and not hip-hop, I would probably play out in the street because there's no middle man...If you actually want to have a music career, you have to deal with a lot B.S...It's not really artistic. If you just want to play an instrument and make a few bucks, and you don't really want to have to deal with the music industry, the music business, you can go out an rock anywhere...That's a great thing.”
