Special Interview with L.D.M. (aka @mrmasterpiece), creator of “COLD (The Unofficial Bills Anthem)”

The “COLD” Youtube video that appeared online last month and was featured on 93.7 WBLK’s website a couple weeks ago has received a lot of attention so we here at the Bills Mafia Blog decided to sit down with @mrmasterpiece, the song’s creator, and learn a little bit more about the song and how it came about.

Ok, so who are you and where are you from?

L.D.M aka Mr Masterpiece. I’m from Medina/Lockport, NY. Currently living in Buffalo.

What’s the story behind the song?

I actually made the beat around 2008. I gave it to a few local artists and no one did anything with it. Since the Bills are making a big statement this year, I felt like I owed it to the home town team to make an anthem.

Give us a breakdown of some of the lyrics.

“It’s our time, been loyal been real patient

With the Utmost pride welcome to Bills Nation
We outside and we tailgating
And the Temperatures low, chance of precipitation
And representing monsters,
Bring your favorite team to us and watch em getting conquered
Everybody flashing back to when we ruled the conference
But that ain’t on our conscience, We on our Stevie Johnson”

This verse is for the naysayers. It’s about us Bills fans living in the present and not worrying about the things that plagued us in the past.

Any other videos you’ve done in the past?

I’ve done a bunch of videos that can be seen on my Youtube channel: Youtube.com/mrmasterpiece1

About Del Reid

Del Reid became a Bills fan shortly after coming into this world, having been raised in a home that actually had a framed picture of OJ Simpson on the wall in the living room (until it came down in 1994). Del has always had a passion for bringing people together to celebrate things they share in common. As a result, he (quite accidentally) ended up co-founding the #BillsMafia movement among Bills fans in social media -- which to this point is the coolest thing that has ever happened to him aside from his relationship with God, his wife, and his two awesome kids.
