Not content with giving us a surprise album at the end of 2019, Lee Scott then continued his gift giving with a brand new EP, which he released exclusively to Blah Cult Members on Christmas Day. The EP saw its full release on Friday, which means that us mere mortals can now savour the joys of what is another great project from arguably one of the most prolific artists of the moment. The ffsman EP is a features bonanza, with the Cult Mountain rapper teaming up with a cross-generational list of MCs, including YNR head honcho, Jehst, rising London star, CLBRKS, and new Potent Funk family member, Dream Mclean. The production credits are just as strong, with the likes of Morriarchi, dylantheinfamous, Sumgii and Sam Zircon, all bringing their respective sounds to the mix. The EP is available to stream/download now and you can also hear it in full below. Continue reading “Lee Scott: ffsman ep (Stream)”
CLBRKS keeps it moving with yet another new release, this time finding success with producer, dylantheinfamous. The pair collaborated before on Red Snapper, which is one of the tracks featured on the new EP, with the rest of the project following in the same woozy, jazzy footsteps. You can stream it below and there is also a video for Black Russian.
Continuing with the element of surprise, today sees the release of the latest album from Lee Scott, which was recently announced unexpected. Somewhere Between Here and There is worthy of consideration for your end of year lists, with Lee on fine form both behind the mic and behind the boards. His self-produced tracks are often among the highlights of his releases and this latest project is no exception, with tracks like An Ear For Violence, lingering in your mind after they end. That particular song hears Lee recollecting two dark events from his past and is in my opinion, one of his strongest tracks to date. Features on the LP come from BeTheGun, Milkavelli, King Grubb, Obijuan and looms., plus there is production from Lee, Wholesome Fun, Dylantheinfamous, Bisk and Kiyani. You can listen to the album below and a limited edition vinyl version is available via Blah. There is also a video for the Bisk helmed, Table, which you can watch below.

Great new track from CLBRKS, as he brings his distinctive flow to a particularly smooth beat from dylantheinfamous. The video was made by Honey JD.
Last week saw the release of the latest album from Black Josh. Yung Sweg Lawd is arguably his strongest work to date, with the Manchester MC exploring a wide range of production styles, while managing to sound at home on all of them. The production is handled by a host of talent, including fellow LEVELZ members Biome and Metrodome, as well as the likes of Jack Danz, Reklews, dylantheinfamous, Sly Moon and Pitch 92. There are also a bunch of strong features, including Milkavelli, Truthos Mufasa, Lee Scott, ELIZA and Sniff. The album is available to stream below and you can also watch the latest video from the project for the Skepta produced banger, Ciggaweed. Downloads are available via Blah.

For my money, Black Josh is one of the most versatile MCs at work in the UK today. He sounds just as at home tearing your sound system a new one with Levelz, or getting trappy on tracks like Little Rock, as he does on a laid-back beat from The Mouse Outfit, or this new one which surfaced yesterday. Dem Ways is a nice chilled guitar-laced affair, with Dylantheinfamous behind the boards and is the first track to be taken from Josh’s forthcoming LP, Yung Sweg Lawd. More news on that to follow. The video was made by Bombay Arthouse.
Black Josh promised us new music this week and yesterday he delivered these tracks. I Swear and Dem Ways Dem Sides are both produced by dylantheinfamous and you can stream them below. Continue reading “Black Josh: I Swear/Dem Ways Dem Sides”
