Pleased to see the arrival of a new video for one of my favourite tracks from 2018, as Foreign Beggars release the visuals for Blood in the Sink. Their album was full of fantastic features, including the mighty Kojey Radical, who lent his distinctive flows to this particular joint. The album, 2 2 Karma, is out now on Par Excellence.
Big tune from the Foreign Beggars family as they celebrate their 2 2 Karma Deluxe release. Standard features a killer verse from Rag’N’Bone Man – “I grew up on Task Force, Skinnyman, Rodney and Roots Manuva/Flew all the way to NY last week and heard man bump Dead Players in an Uber” – as well as some tight production from the always on point, Bangzy. The 2 2 Karma Deluxe edition is out now via Par Excellence and features this new track, as well as a selection of remixes.
Bars everywhere in the latest Brapp HD video, with Problem Child bringing their trademark madness to the screen. Dabbla, Dubbeldge and Illaman go back to back over a strong, stripped back beat from Sumgii.
For the past few years Illaman has been making waves in UK hip hop and beyond, largely thanks to his hype fuelled live shows and his involvement with Problem Child, alongside Dubbledge, Dabbla and Sumgii. I got the chance to speak with him at the UK Beatbox Championships last month and we chatted about his journey from metal to rap, his most memorable moments and the plans for his solo album, among many other things.

My favourite group of lunatics making music right now, have just graced us with another video from their excellent 730 project. Get involved with Creeper and then head over to the Par Ex Bandcamp to cop the EP.
Great new material emerging from Par Excellence, as Hey!Zeus.i reunites with Blue Daisy aka Kwesi Darko, for the I Ain’t Apart of This EP. This is raw rap commentary, from an MC who is always pushing boundaries. Check out the video for This or That and then cop the EP from the Par Ex Bandcamp.
The freshest cypher from those rap loonies, Problem Child, which literally dropped about an hour ago. Dabbla, Illaman and Dubbledge get suitably rowdy over a dirty mix from Sumgii. Rap hands everywhere. Watch out for more madness coming soon.
Don’t call it a comeback, call it a fucking welcome return for the trio known as Problem Child. They have been threatening to release new material for a while and then things hotted up when they dropped a cypher video recently. They have now released the first official video from their new project, 730, which is due out later in the year on the Par Excellence label. The single is already available to buy over at Bandcamp.
