Great joint from the AFT Raps family as Billy Whizz drops the first single from his upcoming EP. A Song For Noname sees the 3HB producer connecting with fellow Bristol-based rap machine and Don’t Flop On-Beat champ, Press1. The track was the result of an out of the blue phone call from one of Press’s old friends and is a comment on the taboos young men fight against when it comes to talking about their feelings. The video was made by This & That Media. The Always Finding Trouble EP will be out soon on AFT Raps.

Nice mellow joint from the recently released Astro Travelling E​P, from Jordan Nathaniel and Wish. The video was made by This & That Media and the EP is available now via Bandcamp.

Another banger from Sylla B, as he brings his rapid fire flows to a rugged head-nodder from Just Sayin. Great video from Nikko Hunt too. The track is lifted from Sylla’s forthcoming Anxious Bravado project, which looks set to be pretty special. Coming to VRBL Records soon.

Great track from Split Prophets dons Res One and Badhabitz, as they unite with Pupils of the Clock’s own Lazy Eyez for Stay Real. This is the debut track from the newly formed Green Brick Records and it’s the first of many, so definitely going to be keeping an eye on them. The video was made by Sektion Red.

Another solid single from Bristol-based producer Sam Krats, following on from last month’s excellent Annihilate, which featured Gee Bag and El Da Sensie. Krats continues the transatlantic enrollment on The Chosen, as he brings in one-time Sean Price protege, Ruste Juxx. The track is out now on In The Balance Records

Last week saw the arrival of the latest video from Upfront’s 2017 Lettermorphosis LP. The Split Prophets MC has another of his gang in tow, as he enlists Paro to help him bless the Chris Lucas produced track. The video was made by Parallel Media. Lettermorphosis is available to buy now.

Fresh off the reels comes the brand new video from G00SE, as he blesses us with his debut release on In The Balance Records. Living Poets Society is the title track from the EP and on it he is joined by label mate, Verb T. G00SE also produced the track and the video was made by Parallel Media. Living Poets Society is out now on all the usual platforms.

Hozay brings us the latest video from his recent Paisley Memoirs album. Once again it’s Hozay on the beat and Sektion Red behind the camera. The album is available to buy now.

Been a long time coming, but now we’re finally reaching the release date for the new album from Vard and Wish. Produced in its entirety by Baileys Brown, World War 3, looks set to be a success for the two rising rappers.
They recently released a new video, which is lifted from the project, to give us all a little insight into what to expect from the full project. Reminisce features Jordan Nathaniel and the video was made by This & That Media. Pre-orders for the album are available now, with the release set for 18 April.

In the late summer of 1994, an album was released that encapsulated what was known back then as “the Bristol Sound”.
