Great hedonistic track here from Olos, an artist I've been rating since him and the crew dropped bars on my urbanfmtv.com show a while back. Big track, big beat, and big video!! Definitly an artist that deserves some shine (no pun intended) !
Take a listen. Especially if you like Outkast. This is another one from a US rapper that I'd not heard of but I listen to almost everything I get sent. Check for this single on Phil Ade's upcoming project The Letterman hosted by ex AMG member Don Cannon.

The best tune I've heard so far from J. Cole who is one of the few new US MCs that's really impressing me right now... Listen and learn, this is how to make intelligent street hip hop!! Expect big things from this guy, with his signing to Jay-Z's Roc Nation Cole's gonna be pushed HARD, and rightly so! I expect levels somewhere near Kanye 's buzz when the album drops.

Check this article I found about Louisana rapper Lil Boosie who was one of the biggest potentials before he went to the big house a little while back. This is the latest on him, and I can't see him coming out anytime soon.. Damn.
Lil Boosie was indicted on charge of 1st degree murder by a East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury early evening Thursday for the October 2009 shooting murder of Terry Boyd.
According to the district attorney, Lil Boosie may receive the death penalty according to a district attorney.The rap star is already incarcerated at Dixon Correctional Institute.
Prosecutors also indicted Lil Boosie of conspiring with a girlfriend, another inmate and a former correctional officer of smuggling in synthetic marijuana, marijuana pills and codeine into the prison. Six other men have also been indicted for their involvement in the murder of Boyd.
Below is a summary of all the charge that Boosie faces and prosecutors believe he may have been involved in at least five other slayings:
• 1st Degree Murder of Terry Boyd, 35, shot to death inside his residence at 16837 Vermillion Drive on 10/21/09. The shots were fired from outside home through a window.
• 3 counts PWITD Narcotics (Schedule II-Codeine, Schedule I-Ecstacy and Schedule I-Marijuana)
• 3 counts Conspiracy to commit PWITD Narcotics
• 2 counts Conspiracy to Introduce Contraband into a Penal Institution
Check this track to here a good example of what he can come with!

Lowkeys tactics to get fame isnt just by attending rallies of resistance but also by making threats to 19 year old pop star Chipmunk who's a sitting duck to all types of criticism... maybe this will increase Lowkey's fanbase to even more people fed up with the system. VIVA LA REVOLUTION (I think)... I have respect and hate for both these artists by the way. I don't like the way Chipmunk's sold out, considering his previous material was SO on point (listen to 'League of my own' for proof) and I respect Lowkey's lyrical ability but his content is a bit samey and reeks of Immortal Technique syndrome...

Tinchy Stryder and his management have signed a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation company.
The Number 1 rapper reportedly met Jigga in Manchester just yesterday to ink the big money deal.
Tinchy and his managers will apparently now run ‘Takeover Roc Nation’ in Europe, signing new artists and working with Sony Music and Live Nation.
Stryder himself will still be signed to Island/ Universal. The star hinted at the news yesterday writing on Twitter: “Just finalised a deal with powerful men. Artists holla at me!”
He also reportedly met with Beyonce and Drake as Jay-Z played the Manchester MEN venue.
Definitely a strong look for both parties here, I've always been one to deny Tinchy's being a sell out, just listen to his latest mixtape Before the Storm, which sees him staying true to his roots... Jigga man's not doing badly for himself either...

In anticipation of the highly overdue 3rd album from the LEGEND that is Lil Jon, I decided to share this mixtape I found. I wouldn't recomend playing this if you've just woken up, or are about to go to sleep!
The Wrap Up: Apart from the new track ‘Born Yesterday,' what’s been going on in NY’s world for the last few months?
NY: I've just been doing shows and appeared on the new DJ Ironik track which will be on his forthcoming album. I've also been busy in studio recording my debut album. There’s no release date as yet, but will be around the end of 2010 or start of 2011.
TWU: How did you hook up with Gil for the new track?
NY: He knew my dad when I was six or seven. My dad lives abroad now and had a reunion with old mates a short while back. I was there and got chatting with him and we ended up working together that way. We got three tracks recorded over the last few weeks which are all potentially on the album.
TWU: Did you feel under pressure working with him considering he'd worked with names such as Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse?
NY: No, I didn't feel any pressure, it was a natural process. There were no expectations, as I already knew him, so it was really chilled and it felt relaxed. We spent a lot of time joking about and talking about my dad.

Hot video from Gappy Ranks, a UK artist considered among the elite in UK Dancehall.. Video shot in Harleseden, North West London...
New joint off Klashnekoffs album 'Back To the Sagas' called the 'Klash Anthem'. and features D.Ablo who's part of the 2nd generation of artists in Terra Firma...
Got to say it's good to have Klashnekoff back on the scene, definitly is an influence to a lot of grime, UK hip hop and road rap artists today. It's a shame that not enough people don't know his stuff beyond the UK anthem 'murda' but he's definitely got a loyal fan base that'll welcome his return...
Released physically on July 26th and available on iTunes now
This vid may be a month old but it's certainly overdue for a classic quality southern rap tune. The video itself is hot but the track's predominantly based on lyrics over hype. At the same time the video's strong but the chorus lets it down a little.
B.O.B could well be the MVP of the 2010 hip hop scene. First heard him on the uplifting I'll Be In The Sky which has strong air of a Stevie Wonder meets Andre 3000 combo despite him claiming not to have been influenced by the fellow Atlanta rapper!
