Jehst: Mork Calling Orson (Stream)

A pleasing return to centre stage from Jehst, with the release of his first solo album since 2017’s, Billy Green is Dead. Mork Calling Orson finds the UK rap linchpin on typically fine form, with his pen remaining as sharp as ever and his production choices setting the album’s mood without fault. Contributions from Sam Zircon, Beat Butcha, Sonnyjim, Mr Brown, Keor Meteor, Taharka and Jehst himself, provide a varied but unified sound, while Lee Scott, CW Jones, Sindysman, Eva Lazarus and Confucius MC, all prove to be the perfect co-stars. Previews of Mork Calling Orson can be heard below, with Bandcamp being the best spot to grab your downloads and physical copies.

Cult of the Damned: SCOTTY2COMFY

Cult of the Damned reassembled recently to bring forth their latest album, CULTGANGRAPSH!T VOL. 1. Produced in its entirety by fellow cult favourite, Drae Da Skimask, the album is another testament to Blah’s reign on the UK alt-rap throne. This particular track, SCOTTY2COMFY, features Lee Scott, Sniff and Bisk. The full album is available for your listening pleasure at the usual spots.

BeTheGun: Metropolis

At last we are being treated to a full project from one of the more sought after but least heard rappers in the country. BeTheGun has been a cult favourite – in every sense – for a while, but until now we have never been able to eke out more than a few hooks and verses here and there. That was until recently, when he announced the imminent arrival of a brand new EP, entitled Miami Deco. Metropolis is the first single and it comes fully equipped with a video as slick and suave as the man of the hour. Production is handled by Lee Scott, with Jack Chard joining him on the remainder of the project, which is due for release on Blah on 24 October.

Confucius MC: Somewhere (Stream)

Continuing that run of beautiful releases with the latest album from Confucius MC. Somewhere is a reunion of sorts, as it is produced in full by Keor Meteor, who was the man behind the boards on The Highest Order, back in 2014. This new album captures the same creative spark they discovered back then and builds it up into an inferno of lyrical insights, compelling narratives and jazz-soaked beats. Plenty of notable features too, thanks to appearances from Jehst, Sonnyjim, Verbz, Strange U and Lee Scott. You can get lost in the full brilliance of the album below, while Bandcamp is the spot to find your downloads and physicals.

Eahwee x Lee Scott: LOOOL

New music from London producer, Eahwee, as he blesses us with his latest project, Solitude. It’s his first release on the Astral Black label and quite the debut it is too, thanks to a potent blend of instrumental glories and solid vocal features, including Melanin 9, Ninjah Aragniz and Lee Scott. You can hear the latter of those above, thanks to the new video from Honey JD and LOUDHOUSE. The whole EP is available now via Bandcamp.

Two Orange Tecs, A White Camouflage Suit & Some Silver Boots

If you follow Lee Scott on Facebook, you might have noticed he’s recently started posting up some of his favourite classic rap albums and urging his younger fans to go and explore them if they’re not already familiar. Me and Lee have had a few little rap related chats of our own in the past and so I thought I’d use the current situation as an opportunity to pick his brains about his favourite rappers from back in the day, plus a few other little questions here and there. So via Twitter DMs, we delved into a whole bunch of original talent, including Redman, Likwit Crew, Company Flow and The Cenobites (the title of this piece is a reference to their track, How The Fuck You Get A Deal). To be honest we could have gone on a lot longer, so maybe we’ll try and squeeze another one out before normality returns. For now though, get stuck into this geek sesh.

Jam Baxter ft. Lee Scott: All Clear

Jam Baxter makes a return to our celestial plane with a new video for All Clear. The track is taken from his recent Off Piste EP and features a slick guest spot from Lee Scott, as well as a nice mix of trap and keys from Lenkemz on the beat. The video was made by Vikki Digby-Johns and Dew8. Off Piste is out now on High Focus.

Cult of The Damned: OFFIE

Almost full gang in the latest video from Blah Records, as Children of the Damned release their first new music in two years. OFFIE is the first of two new tracks, which are also getting a limited 7″ vinyl release. The track features, in order, Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Barebase, Bill Shakes, King Grubb, Sly Moon and Salar, on top of some murky production from Wholesome Fun and Lee. It’s a great track, made all the more better thanks to a full verse from Barebase, which is pretty much a guaranteed improvement in any area of life. The video was made by Siim Parisoo and Lee. More info about the vinyl is available over at the Blah site.

Lee Scott: ffsman ep (Stream)

Not content with giving us a surprise album at the end of 2019, Lee Scott then continued his gift giving with a brand new EP, which he released exclusively to Blah Cult Members on Christmas Day. The EP saw its full release on Friday, which means that us mere mortals can now savour the joys of what is another great project from arguably one of the most prolific artists of the moment. The ffsman EP is a features bonanza, with the Cult Mountain rapper teaming up with a cross-generational list of MCs, including YNR head honcho, Jehst, rising London star, CLBRKS, and new Potent Funk family member, Dream Mclean. The production credits are just as strong, with the likes of Morriarchi, dylantheinfamous, Sumgii and Sam Zircon, all bringing their respective sounds to the mix. The EP is available to stream/download now and you can also hear it in full below. Continue reading “Lee Scott: ffsman ep (Stream)”

Lee Scott x Sniff: Yellow x Green

Yellow x Green is the latest track to be taken from the SUPERGANG project, which saw its release back in May, courtesy of Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Sniff and Sumgii. This particular track features Lee and Sniff, as they deliver an ode to the halcyon days of Jobcentre Plus and surviving on the dole. The video was made by RSLBM. SUPERGANG is out now on Blah.
