DJ Muggs and Eto have an album en route and judging by the first single, Holy Wine, it’s going to be another rough and rugged success story for the Cypress Hill vet. The pair first worked together on Dia del Asesinato and Muggs was so impressed with the Rochester MC’s skills that he decided to make a full length project with him. Hell’s Roof is due for release shortly on Soul Assassins.

New Black Thought bars to digest, as the Roots MC lets rip over some luxuriously jazzy production from Adrian Younge. Younge explains that his work is a “reminder of how music can lay the groundwork for self-expression and cultural awareness”, while urging us to “embrace Black History Month and take the time to realize how black music has shaped the cultural narrative of America”.

New karaoke style lyric video for one of my favourite tracks from Jam Baxter’s most recent album, Touching Scenes. Sometimes videos of this ilk feel a bit pointless, but that turns to intrigue when we’re dealing with one of the most profound lyricists on this side of the Atlantic. Right Here is produced by Chemo and the album is available now on High Focus.
