Renelle 893 & King Kashmere: Let Go

Next up is another one from High Focus’s newest signing, Renelle 893.

Once again it’s Honey JD on video duties. More news on the album soon.

Renelle 893: HF TV Exclusive Bars

There used to be a time when I’d know every artist that was announced as a new addition to a UKHH label, back when I had my finger well and truly on the pulse. Not so these days, as was proved yesterday when High Focus broke the news that Renelle 893 was joining their ranks. Happy to have caught the announcement though, as this rendition of his single, My Demons, served as a fine introduction to his skills and has definitely got me intrigued for what his label debut will bring to the scene. The production on the track comes courtesy of King Kashmere and the video was shot by Honey JD.

King Kashmere ft. Maddy: North Star

The freshest of the fresh here from King Kashmere, as he brings us his latest single. North Star sees him returning to the lab with Alecs DeLarge, as well as teaming up with one of my favourite vocalists, Maddy. I’m hoping this means some sort of full length project is en route but for now, savour this latest gem. The video was made by Honey JD.

Gangster Doodles: Gangster Music Vol​.​2 (Stream)

Pleased to see the full release of the latest Gangster Doodles curated extravaganza. The infamous cartoonist has selected a wealth of talented types for the project, with MCs and producers from both sides of the Atlantic, and from all walks of rap life, rubbing shoulders on the tracklist. The compilation weighs in at 28 tracks, so a track by track breakdown would be too much, but to give you a decent overview, there are cuts from the likes of Black Milk, Zeroh, Ohbliv, Gaslamp Killer, King Kashmere, Lil B and Lord Apex, to name a very select few. You can hear a selection of tracks below, with downloads and physicals available via Bandcamp.

King Kashmere: Veronica R.I.P

High Focus recently announced the official digital release of King Kashmere’s 2006 album, In The Hour Of Chaos. Originally released on Receptor Records, the album further cemented Kashmere’s position as one of the UK’s best, thanks in part to storytelling raps like Veronica R.I.P. Just in time for Halloween, it tells the story of a doomed love affair between Kashmere and a visitor from the spirit realm. The track was produced by the man FKA as Chemo. In The Hour Of Chaos is available now via the usual platforms.
