Check out the next offering from Jam Baxter’s latest album, which has further established him as one of the nation’s most innovative MCs. And with good reason. It’s always going to be hard to follow an album that was lauded as much as So We Ate Them Whole, but he and Chemo have managed to pull it off. Read the rest of this entry »

I had to write ‘everyone’ cos I literally cannot fit all the MCs names into the title. 20 rappers, eight bars a piece. Safe to say this is a monumental track from Leaf Dog, as he continues to build on the intrigue for his forthcoming album, Dyslexic Disciple. Phi Life Cypher, Smellington Piff, BVA, Cracker Jon, Jehst, Jack Jetson, Dirty Dike, Verb T, Sonnyjim, Mysdiggi, Klashnekoff, Fliptrix, Bill Shakes, Eric The Red, King Kashmere, Remus, Task Force and DJ Sammy B-Side providing the cuts. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

A couple of weeks ago the High Focus squad rolled into Bristol en masse, for what looked set to be a day of good vibes, good people and good BBQ. Taking over the legendary Lakota club for a seven hour rampage, the bill boasted a weighty line-up including Dabbla, Ocean Wisdom, Fliptrix and Dirty Dike.

When 22 year old Brighton MC, Ocean Wisdom burst into our lives back in July 2014 with his track, Walking, I don’t think many of us realised just how much he was going to blow up. It was obvious he had skill on the mic. Just the ease with which he switches up his flow left a lot of rappers, with years of experience, in the shade. But it is a rarity these days for an unsigned rapper, especially from the UK, to clock over a million views on his debut video. Read the rest of this entry »

More fire from High Focus’ latest signing Ocean Wisdom, as he gears up to release his debut album Chaos ’93. The album is produced in its entirety by Dirty Dike and is available to pre-order now. The video was made by Video by Cillian Farrell & Tom Holborn. Album review coming soon.

Another serving of excellence from Ocean Wisdom, as he releases the next track from his highly anticipated album Chaos ’93, which drops on High Focus next month. Dirty Dike is on the boards for this track and the whole album, so looks set to be a heavy hitter. Stay tuned for more news soon.

Realised I haven’t posted anything from The Four Owls for a while, which is pretty shameful considering they dropped their album recently. To make up for it, here is the latest video from that album, featuring label mate Dirty Dike, for the track Assassination. It is produced by Leaf Dog and the video was made by Tom Jarret. Natural Order is available to buy now from High Focus.

The third video is actually a High Focus release, but it features Blah’s head honcho Lee Scott on beautifully ignant form. Lifted from his recent release with Dirty Dike, Sell Drugs is exactly what is sounds like. The video is mostly tits and drugs too, but don’t get it twisted, this is intentionally obnoxious rap. Take it as just that. The album, Butter Fly, is available now from the HF site.

Now this is good shit. Ocean Wisdom just dropped this track on which he pulls off some devastating flows, all backed up by a filthy beat from Dirty Dike. Looking forward to hearing more from this cat.
