SonnyJim ft. Quelle Chris: Dorchester

New video from SonnyJim and his excellent Mud in my Malbec LP. This time it’s one of my favourites from the album, Dorchester featuring the inimitable Quelle Chris. Great animation style in the video too, courtesy of Ewen Farr, who reinterprets a classic Pulp Fiction scene. It was premiered over on Pigeons & Planes on Wednesday.

Sleaze & SonnyJim: Paranoid City

I like to think I have my finger relatively on the pulse when it comes to UK rap, but a few releases somehow pass me by, like this new LP from SonnyJim & Sleaze.

Booda French: Interview

I spoke with him about reaching full potential, his friendship with J57 and what it was like coming up in Ipswich. Continue reading “Booda French: Interview”

SonnyJim Ft. Heems: Al Jazeera

Another impressive leak from the new SonnyJim album, as he teams up with Queens native & Das Racist alumni, Heems. Al Jazeera premiered on The Fader earlier this week and seems to have gone down well on both sides of the Atlantic. Just about to get my first listen of the Mud in my Malbec LP, so expect to hear more on that from me very soon.

SonnyJim: Mud in My Malbec (Album Snippets)

Our only legit baller rapper has been relatively quiet over the past couple of years, in contrast to the prolific years that saw him and the whole EatGood roster knock out solid release after solid release. This hiatus is now officially over though, as the announcement that SonnyJim’s long awaited Mud in my Malbec LP will finally be released at the end of this month.
