Big cakes drops another hot video while pouring out hennesey!!
So SB TV posts up a request on facebook for questions for an upcoming interview with Scorcher... cool. Big H then poses some questions of his own. Now don't take this as the gospel as we don't really know if the accusations are true, but if they are.. DAMN. Scorcher better hope his new label Geffen Records isn't reading....

Nothing needs to be said about this but "oooh my goooosh". Definitley a contender for grime tune of 2010 so far! To be honest I'm not feeling the video as much as the one made for BBC 3 show No hats no trainers but its big none the less...
My homie DJ Flipz drops a dubstep remix on this one from Yela Wolf, a southern US artist who's currently taking the underground/alternative hip hop scene by storm and is set to move overground since he signed to Interscope records...

Charlie Sloth & Black the ripper drop this smasher, the first single from DJ Gone's compilation album. Big up all these artists putting in serious work in the UK scene approaching the game with a different angle...

After much behind-the-grime-scene work alongside the likes of UK heavyweights Ghetts, Frisco, Ms Dynamite, Mz Bratt and many more, multi-talented producer Loco introduces his unique production style to the scene in the loudest, rudest, grimiest possible fashion...albeit with a few added sprinkles of humour (check out the artwork and the movie samples!)
Imagine a music video by Lil Wayne that was filmed in his house where he ashes in his Grammy award and his bars are more on point than you'd heard them in ages. This is it. Another wack verse Gucci Mane doesn't add much to the track except highlight far behind Weezy he actually is despite being one of the biggest in the game right now.
This is the side of hip hop a lot of 'hip hop fans' try to dis-associate themselves from but a for me, a few minutes of repetitive murder rap keeps me on my toes. Waka Flocka Flame in case you've not heard about him is the latest in the line of the igna'nt southern rap fans taking white suburbia by storm.. This reminded me why I love southern rap! Oh and Ra Diggs isn't Rha Digga of Busta's Flipmode Mode Squad tho I'd much rather hear a return from her! Uncle Murda's verse at the end sits comfortably like a squirt of brown sauce with a fried breakfast!

Check this free mixtape from a talent from the US underground scene that i definitly co-sign.. Phil Adé. He's hooked up with DJBooth.net, Okayplayer, Sneaker Pimps and Virginia streetwear company Cmonwealth to bring fans 'The Letterman'. Don't expect 'ign'ant' content on this tho, it's straight boom bap real lyricism! Mixed by heavyweight DJ/radio personality Don Cannon, the project features 20 original tracks, including the brilliant Hollywood Remix ft. Raekwon, Wale, Tabi Bonney, & Raheem Devaughn...

Jammer, C Gritz aka Camalot, Rodaidh McDonald, Sampha, and Mumdance creating a song in 58 minutes. Enlisting the help of the audience, the seasoned DJs and producers took a vocal hook from the crowd, “Too much alcohol in my system”, and set about remixing and layering beats on top of it. The goal of this crowdsourced pop music experiment was to collaboratively produce a pop hit...

Bolton 'Donk' pioneers The Blackout Crew have put a donk on new Pot Noodle Sticky Rib flavour and you can download the track for free! Blackout Crew rose to internet fame after their modern day classic “Put a Donk On It” launched the donk genre in to the mainstream!
Now they’ve teamed up with snack food ledges to produce this ad and full length track starring the lads from Pot Noodle; Steve and Digger.

Watch the video here:
The revered veteran that is Skinnyman drops some knowledge in the way only HE knows how to do... Duno if I agree with everything he has to say in this instance but the guy's definitely a character and a half and has the same conviction and enthusiasm as he did when I saw him on his 'straight outta jail' tour 8 years ago!
Here's the flyer I've still got from the event, was crazy!
And this is the track! This would be big if it came out today but considering it's from 2001/2 this is fire!!! Honestly less than a handful of UK Hip Hop artists have come by and influenced a generation of London, English and probably Australian MCs in the same way.
Oh and if you're still not convinced then check this banger from a few years later on his 'better late than never' classic album 'Council estate of mind'. Go cop it!
To end the Skinny megapost here's sick battle between him and Saint, a succesful Jump off rapper that never got beyond just that.. Don't forget, these bars are from the top of their head (assuming they didn't pre-write apart from the odd line or 2). This is something that doesn't get done too often these days!

New album here for free courtesy of Sam Khan, a talented and most importantly honest UK Hip hop MC with over 1m youtube hits and plenty of air play across the airwaves! I won't say too much just download and listen to the bars...Click cover to download

Wiley - IMMMMMM

1. Points - The War Goes On (From Dogzilla's Dogumentary Mix CD)
2. Points - We Keep It OT (From Dogzilla's Dogumentary Mix CD)
3. Gunja Man - FU (From Devlin's Art Of Rolling Mix CD)
4. Gunja Man - Military Strengths (From OT's Left 2 Rot Mix CD)
Not a collab between the 2 tho the idea would be a sick 1, but here's JME goin in on Souljah Boys new track, and also the original, which was only out a few days ago... If you're one of those people that by default dismisses Souljah Boy due to his lack of "real lyrics" or whatever then you're missing out !
West London MC Scrufizzer goes in for Link Up TV. I can't think of many MCs with a flow as good as this guy... only the likes of Ghetts, (pre- major label) Devlin or Goodz come to mind!!
16 July 2010
Hard Worker contains a version of B.O.B's smash hit 'Airplanes', a twisted love story told over Borgore's remix of Passion Pit's 'Sleepyhead' and a high-tempo assault on recently-incarcerated Grime producer Maniac's 'Boiler'.

Wyclef and Esco go in over a bashment version of the 90s Luniz classic 'i got five on it'. Wyclef coming with that good vibe sound and catchy hook he's known for. Never heard of the dude Esco but he goes in hard!

I can't lie, this looks pretty big! Jamie Hector (from The Wire and Heroes) plays a struggling rapper who dreams of getting signed by the legendary 'A-Maze' (Wood Harris from The Wire and Remember the Titans). Quite a few big rappers star in the film like Trick Daddy, Lil Scrappy, Ja Rule and Petey Pablo.. Also served as a cautionary tale a lotta of the upcoming UK guys!

A lot of acts such as Phi Life Cypher, Blackalicious and Lowkey have done alphabet aerobics. N London MC Sam Khan runs that concept but spelling out his name. The track's strong and has solid bars and content. Taken off Sam Khan's new CD 'Only One Me' available to download from http://BSomebody.tv/SamKhan from July 19TH

WOOOOOOI! The greatest Texan MC drops a joint with the greatest Texan producer (yep, DJ Premier's from TX, not NY as many wrongly assume!). It's a strong track, and although it may not be the best output from the artists individually, it's certainly worth a listen... This is from Bun B’s upcoming album, Trill O.G., in stores on August 3rd.
Download: Bun B - Let 'em know (prod. by DJ Premier)

Devilmans back and sounds sick over dubstep.. he has so many quotables he need his own soundboard!
"know what i meeeeeeeean, yea!"
I already heard and liked the beat of this, 'Boriken Soul' produced by Chicago's Yo Nurican, and Doom Man jumps on the vocals and delivers.. Don't Talk To Me is set to be released in August from his own label Onslaught Recordings

Proof right here that Joey Crack still has that edge as he drops his latest video with R&B man of the moment Trey Songz - a singer who's finally getting the recognition he deserves, after 6 years in the game!
Big video here even tho the tracks around a year old, I definitely rate it! Lethal B's an ongoing controversial but influential character in the scene, airing his beefs with Jammer and N Dubz publicly. Production from Teddy (who was known as Silencer at the time) provides that unmistakable grime vehicle for Lethal to spray bars ...

Another video from a US artist I'd never heard of. This track actually gets better so if you're not too impressed from the 1st verse (like me) keep watching and you'll see wat the tracks about...Almost like this is a US version of Jammer's track 'Better than'
3 July 2010
Two of the undisputed kings of production right now in the grime scene talk to DJ Limelight about up and coming producers, why Silencer became Teddy artists they're working with and loads more.
New video here from Chima Anya, shot entirely on the new iPhone 4 and it’s 720p HD video recorder... Chima's a lyrically strong emcee and talks about true issues. Check his album 'new day' and check my interview with him from a couple of months back below...
Just when you thought it was over for the Wooo riddim, veteran MC 'Hyper' goes in and duppies the track!!!
Straight ign'ant NY heat right here from Grafh, an artist who's been steadily grinding for the last few years but yet to make a real impact. The beats heavy, the hook does it's thing and Jim Jones adds that extra swagger. Definitly feeling this!

More Of The Sane features a more acoustic summery vibe than his last release, Mental Disorder. Over 6 tracks the J-Man deftly tackles subject matters including forming an indie band, bad business acumen, tea, trains and perseverance.
