01.14.09 - THE LORDZ CREATE THE TITLE TRACK FOR MTV REAL WORLD: BROOKLYN & SHOW CREW "THE BROOKLYN WAY"
New Season Features Three Tunes, Artwork & A Tour Of The Real Brooklyn With BK's Music Legends
NEW YORK, NY, December 10, 2008 - After 21 globe trotting seasons, the show that started the reality genre is finally putting down stakes in the Big Apple's 'realest' borough with the January 7 premiere of Real World: Brooklyn.
To give the cast of eight wannabe Brooklynites an across-the-board primer on true BK flavor, MTV turned to none other than the legendary Bay Ridge punk/hip-hop pioneers, The Lordz.
The Lordz, Mike 'Mr. Kaves' McLeer and his brother/partner-in-crime Adam 'ADM', have been on the scene since the dawn of B-boy culture, when they fell under the spell of hip hop - he sound as well as the bold street art and dance - while their neighbors were still lock-step with Saturday Night Fever. The Bay Ridge-based brothers forged the punk/hip-hop hybrid with their 1995 debut release, 'All in the Family.' Since that time, they have continued to gain critical acclaim and kudos, from both rock and rap superstar camps, with their continued recordings, appearances on international tours like the Van's Warped Tour, performances on national TV shows like Late Night with Conan O?Brien as well as the busy music production and fine art careers of ADM and Kaves respectively. Their intriguing work and life story was the subject of documentary television series, ?The Brooklyn Way,' which aired on the Fuse network in 2007.
With The Lordz of course, it ultimately comes down to the music. MTV is capturing the grit and energy of the borough by featuring two new songs by The Lordz in the series, 'The Brooklyn Way' and 'Alright. ' The Lordz also created the title track for the series.
The Real World loft showcases more of the BK vibe with four graffiti-themed figurative paintings by the multi-talented Mr. Kaves. The Lordz also help introduce the cast to the real Brooklyn. During the shooting, the Real World cast members enjoyed a high-energy live performance by The Lordz taped at Public Assembly, then explored Brooklyn institutions including L&B Spumoni Gardens Restaurant in Bensonhurst and Kaves' store, 'Made In Brooklyn.'
Made in Brooklyn store opened its doors only a few months ago in The Lordz's hometown of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Kaves partnered up with Big DS from the original Brooklyn House and wife Donna to create an authentic old school Brooklyn storefront selling original artwork, Brooklyn apparel and tattoos. Make sure you stop by to get your recently released limited edition Lordz of Brooklyn Fidora available in the store or online at madeinbrooklynstore.com. Also available are the Mr Kaves paintings featured in Real World: Brooklyn.

07.01.07 SEE THE LORDZ IN THEIR NEW TV SHOW "THE BROOKLYN WAY" ON MSG
In The Brooklyn Way, we get a rare glimpse at 2 genuine-article New York City icons raising their families in the unique world unto itself that is Brooklyn, NY. While raising a family in Brooklyn is obviously not uncommon, Michael McLeer, a/k/a Mr. Kaves and ADM, a/k/a Adam McLeer, supporting theirs is without peer. Kaves became a legendary graffiti writer, burrowing through the NYC transit system since age 10. He has been celebrated as an artist and also punished for his vandalism. Adam, following in his older brother’s footsteps, put in his time as a DJ, breakdancer and also hitting the train yards.
Today, the brothers are recognized as pioneers in every aspect of early hip-hop and street culture - not just in New York, but also around the globe. Kaves’ work is sought after by today’s generation of underground artists and art snobs alike. Adam has become a widely sough-after DJ and producer. From the visuals, to the music, to the fashion – the McLeer brothers have influenced the course of popular taste, as well as the mainstream from Brooklyn to Tokyo.
Even with having such incredible credentials under their belts, the brothers continue to struggle and face varying outcomes. Their band, The Lordz, is always teetering on the edge of falling apart despite widespread recognition, their marriages are constantly taxed and their fight to provide for and enrich the lives of their children is ongoing.
