ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vintage Babies is the title of the collaborative album created by Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, and MC, Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh and producer, Dj, and musical director Dj Dummy. The Vintage Babies album consists of 17 soul and hip hop head bangers and features music greats like Grammy & Oscar award winning Common, as well as some incredible songwriting and vocal help from Top Dawg’s own SIR, Malik Yusef , and Baltimore’s Rose Gold from the Polly seeds.

Vintage Babies is a Revival of the Soul, Funk, & Gospel sounds that Hip hop was founded on. The aim of Vintage Babies is celebrate the resilience and power of the human spirit through the utilization of the soulful sounds that have gotten us through difficult times in our history and will surely continue to do so for years to come. Vintage Babies will pull on an array of emotional strings sending you into lucid euphoric dance states in one moment then transition you into deep thought provoking storytelling about the state of humanity in the next moment with a little comic relief in between.
This is not the first time Dj Dummy and Maimouna Youssef have collaborated. They have toured together for several years with Rapper/Actor Common and in 2014 they released a mixtape together entitled the Reintroduction of Mumu Fresh. Dj Dummy and Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh are not new to the music scene but if your ears are new to the sounds they’ve been creating and curating for almost a decade then check out their track records.

Dj Dummy has been J Cole’s DJ and on tour Music Direct since 2010 and Common’s DJ and Music Director since 1999. He started out djing at the age of 7 and by 14 he was winning prestigious dj battles in NYC like the Zulu Nation Battle (96) ad American DMC Battle (98). Since then he has both dj’ed and/or created stage shows for artists like Talibe Kewli, Kanye West, Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, & De La Soul among others. He has even graced the halls of the prestigious venue affectionately known as The White House per request of 44th President Barack Obama. Dj Dummy is no newbee to the scene but he is just getting started in terms of making a name for himself as a worldwide producer and Vintage Babies is just the beginning.

MAIMOUNA YOUSSEF

Maimouna has shared stages with music giants such as Sting, Nas, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, Bobby Mcferrin, Talib Kweli, Jill Scott, D’angelo, Maxwell, Aloe Blacc, Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def), Dead Prez, Angelique Kidjo, Lalah Hathaway, Will Downing, Femi Kuti, Cody ChestnuTT, and more.

Youssef’s 2011 original release, “I got a man” produced by Dj Jazzy Jeff, was selected by BET as the theme song for their original movie “Being Mary Jane” Starring Gabrielle Union. She also contributed as a writer and a singer on grammy award winning DJ jazzy Jeff’s Playlist album “Chasing Goosebumps”.
She released her first Solo EP, 'Black Magic Woman,' independently in March of 2011, and her highly anticipated and widely praised first full length solo album, 'The Blooming,' in September of the same year. Maimouna's 2014 project, “The Reintroduction of Mumu Fresh,” mixed and curated by Dj Dummy showcased her sharp rhyming skills as an emcee and her strong commitment to providing a balanced perspective on current social, racial, political, gender and class issues. Now in 2017 she and Dj Dummy are gearing up to release their first full length all original collaborative effort entitled Vintage Babies.
