MC Serch Launches Kickstarter For the 1 of Hip Hop Book And Album Combo
#DXCLUSIVE: THE 3rd Bass MC will reveal untold stories about the late Jam Master Jay, touring with Flavor Flav, his relationship with Pete, Nice and more.
Orlando, FL – Fans of 3rd Bass have been asking MC Serch when he is going to write a book and the release of a solo album for years, but he was having problems of adjustment in their schedule. Now, the time is finally right.
Earlier this month, the Queens native, launched a Kickstarter campaign for his latest effort, what have you heard About, which would serve as the Hip Hop, the first novel and the album mix.

With the exception of the tour, at the end of January is really when I have time with the family and time for myself."
