Back in the early 2000’s, the hip hop scene in this country was burgeoning at an exceptional rate. Building on the foundation laid by the likes of Task Force and Mud Family a few years before, artists like Jehst, Supa T and Klashnekoff were leading the charge on a new era of UK hip hop. In the midst of this, while the internet was still turning into the monster it is today, there were a few mixtape series that kept fans like me stocked up with freestyles, exclusives and remixes from some of the best artists at work at the time.

Speaking of UK legends, yesterday we were blessed with the brand new single from Terra Firma OG, Klashnekoff. Rumours of a new project from K-Lash have been circulating for a while and we now have confirmation that we are indeed getting a new album, with production handled the masterful Funky DL. You can check the first taster above and keep your eyes peeled for more news on the full project coming in the not too distant future.

I had to write ‘everyone’ cos I literally cannot fit all the MCs names into the title. 20 rappers, eight bars a piece. Safe to say this is a monumental track from Leaf Dog, as he continues to build on the intrigue for his forthcoming album, Dyslexic Disciple. Phi Life Cypher, Smellington Piff, BVA, Cracker Jon, Jehst, Jack Jetson, Dirty Dike, Verb T, Sonnyjim, Mysdiggi, Klashnekoff, Fliptrix, Bill Shakes, Eric The Red, King Kashmere, Remus, Task Force and DJ Sammy B-Side providing the cuts. Pre-orders for the album are available here.
Brand new video from arguably one of the most popular UK MCs to ever pick up a mic. Klashnekoff released Hand on Heart yesterday, but no info on whether this is a stand alone single, or a sign that a full project will follow. Watch this space. The video was made by Sektion Red.
When 22 year old Brighton MC, Ocean Wisdom burst into our lives back in July 2014 with his track, Walking, I don’t think many of us realised just how much he was going to blow up. It was obvious he had skill on the mic. Just the ease with which he switches up his flow left a lot of rappers, with years of experience, in the shade.
