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.Continue reading “Confucius MC: Somewhere (Stream)”
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.
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 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.
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.
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)”
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. Continue reading “Lee Scott x Sniff: Yellow x Green”
Brand new video here from Lee Scott, as he drops another gem from his excellent new LP. The track is produced by Wholesome Fun and it’s lifted from Somewhere Between Here and There, which is out now on Blah Records. The video was made by Nah Eeto and Slim Parisoo.
Continuing with the element of surprise, today sees the release of the latest album from Lee Scott, which was recently announced unexpected. Somewhere Between Here and There is worthy of consideration for your end of year lists, with Lee on fine form both behind the mic and behind the boards. His self-produced tracks are often among the highlights of his releases and this latest project is no exception, with tracks like An Ear For Violence, lingering in your mind after they end. That particular song hears Lee recollecting two dark events from his past and is in my opinion, one of his strongest tracks to date. Features on the LP come from BeTheGun, Milkavelli, King Grubb, Obijuan and looms., plus there is production from Lee, Wholesome Fun, Dylantheinfamous, Bisk and Kiyani. You can listen to the album below and a limited edition vinyl version is available via Blah. There is also a video for the Bisk helmed, Table, which you can watch below.
