Da Flyy Hooligan released an excellent EP earlier this year, which has spawned a couple of singles, including this joint, Romero Bryan. DFH has more dope on the way in a couple of months, as he links up with US label, 22 Entertainment to release his S.C.U.M. LP. Features include Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin, so it looks set to be another smash. Fucc Ya Life Praise Mine is out now on Gourmet Deluxxx.

Check out this tasty little video for another gem from Chairman Maf’s recent album, Alcoholic Soul. Dmitri Dominique is the brains behind the visuals. The album is available to buy here.

Another great track from Tha 4orce and his slew of collaborations that have been given life over the past few months. This time round he links up with AKD (Arise King David) for Mind That Gap! and it’s more of that golden boom bap you should be accustomed to by now. Once again it’s Global Faction behind the camera. The track is available to buy here.

I love it when projects get released without any real prior warning. Take the third instalment of the exquisite Lice series, which Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman have been treating us to for the last couple of years. Friday saw its arrival without much hype building, except for an IG post from Aesop Rock, which pictured him and Sand with the caption “What are you doing Friday? #3”. Read the rest of this entry »

G.Rich and Drapes have an album on the way and so they are hitting us with a few teasers, including this tight track, featuring production from D£DW8’s finest, Baileys Brown. Winners & Sinners is out soon. The video was shot by JMB Media.

You wait six years for a new Antiheroes track and then two turn up at once. It was in 2011 that Lee Scott and Salar released their last project under the moniker, Antiheroes, but rumours of new material had been in my mind ever since I spoke with Lee and Salar at the end of last year. Those rumours came to fruition today, with the release of two new tracks, both of which are produced by Task Force veteran, Farma G. No word on a full length project yet, but make the most of these for now.

Got another new video from The Mouse Outfit for you, following on from Revolution and Bring Me Down, which emerged over the last few months. This new one features Black Josh and TrueMendous, over a nice beat from Chini.

Check out the new video for the excellent Ghetto track, which is taken from J Scienide’s equally excellent LP, The Actual Heat. Ghetto features Kev Brown and the video was shot by Vercedes. The LP is out now on Official Crate Music.

Sean Price’s posthumous fourth studio album was released to acclaim this week and coincided with the NY rapper’s second anniversary. Imperius Rex has been well received by fans of P and a couple of videos have already been peeled off the project, including this one for Dead or Alive. The track was produced by The Adept and features not only a mean hook from P’s wife, Bernadette but there are also a few cameos in the video, including one from Michael Rapaport. Imperius Rex is out now on Duck Down Music.

Lowkey has long been a champion of the underdogs and a fighter against injustice, both here and abroad. The recent tragedy of Grenfell Tower has not only destroyed hundreds of lives, but has now become a huge bone of contention between residents and various official bodies, largely due to the latter’s inability to provide the survivors with the answers they desperately need and deserve.
Ghosts of Grenfell picks up on that theme and uses residents and other people who were affected, as a mouthpiece for Lowkey’s typically powerful lyrics. It is a genuinely moving song anyway, but the video adds a lot more to the impact. Big love to Lowkey and all the people who participated in what must have been a very emotional shoot.
