Mobb Marley: Mobb Marley (Stream)

Continuing the mash up theme with this new release from the capital, as the two worlds of gangsta rap and roots regae collide. Mobb Marley fuses together the notoriously rough and rugged lyrics from QB’s finest, Mobb Deep, with the infectious rhythms of Bob Marley’s reggae instrumentals. The project was put together by Large Gary AKA Gi3MO of Rum Committee fame. If it sounds like a unlikely pairing, it is, but that’s not to say it doesn’t work. There are some great moments on there and the overall vibe that the juxtaposition creates is well worth exploring. The project is available to download for free via Bandcamp and you can also stream it below. Continue reading “Mobb Marley: Mobb Marley (Stream)”

Gi3MO: But Still.. + Album Stream

Superb video from Gi3MO, as he leads us into his equally superb new album, The Unmistakable, which was given life recently. But Still.. is a highly satisfying, RnB tinged number, self-produced by the man himself and is just one example of the breadth of different sounds the album ventures into. The full production on the album is handled by Giz and Rum Com in-house beat wizard, KD, with not a guest vocalist in earshot, marking a departure from last year’s feature-heavy, Big Gizzy is Boss mixtape. The Unmistakable is available to stream in full below and you can find other streaming/download options on the usual platforms. Continue reading “Gi3MO: But Still.. + Album Stream”

Kong: You Don’t Want It + EP Stream

Rum Committee’s own Prince Kong returns with a new video for a track taken from his recent Off Cuts EP.

The video was made by Si Haze Films. You can stream Off Cuts below and stay tuned for the full-length Prehab album from Kong coming on 9 May. Continue reading “Kong: You Don’t Want It + EP Stream”

Big Daddy Rap Beast: Peep My Jawns (Stream)

Solid release here from something of a veteran in the game – Big Daddy Rap Beast – as the UK MC returns to the fore with his new project, Peep My Jawns. The album is fuelled by that 90’s rap energy and even includes some familiar names from the era, as Big Daddy drafts in Tame One, Q-Unique and Copywrite for guest verses. He also calls on talent closer to home, as Gi3MO, Larry Diamond and Tenchoo all bring their respective clout to the mix. Production comes courtesy of Secret Other Family aka 184 and Tyni, so you already know it’s going to bang throughout. For further convincing though you can stream the album below and you can also get physicals over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Big Daddy Rap Beast: Peep My Jawns (Stream)”

Gi3MO ft. Ceezlin & Hatter: F.U.T.F

Following on from his new mixtape drop last week, Gi3MO now hits us with a new video from the project. F.U.T.F features fellow Rum Com rhymer, Ceezlin and regular sparring partner, Hatter, while production comes courtesy of Pro P. The track is lifted from Big Gizzy Is Boss, which is out now and then keep an eye out for his new album coming soon, The Unmistakable Gary Guttersnypes.

Gi3MO: Big Gizzy Is Boss (Stream)

A welcome return for one of Brighton’s finest, as Gi3MO releases his new mixtape, Big Gizzy Is Boss. The project is a selection of previously unreleased tracks from the Rum Com MC, including some absolutely golden features from the likes of Tony D, Micall Parknsun, Inja and Dirty Dike. There are of course appearances from his Boozetown family too, with Ceezlin, Hatter, Dan Dastard and Rag’N’Bone Man all dropping gems. The project was put together by Giz and DJ Choice. It is available to stream below and you can grab a download over on the Rum Com Bandcamp page. Continue reading “Gi3MO: Big Gizzy Is Boss (Stream)”

Rag’n’Bone Man x AudioActive: Supporting Grassroots Talent

One of the best things about someone from an independent movement achieving commercial success, is that it allows them to shine a light on the scene that helped them get to where they are today (ego permitting). Take Rag’N’Bone Man for example. Ever since he smashed into the charts last year, he has consistently involved his friends and local musical peers in everything he’s done, from taking Rum Committee on tour with him, to playing a very active role as patron of Brighton-based youth charity, AudioActive.
