Speculation was rife with which member he’d managed to jump on a track with, until yesterday when we were finally given the answer. Dark Horses is a collaboration between producer Kill Miami and Wu Tang favourite, Raekwon, with the added vocal support of Lunar and KRS-One.

Was happy to see the release of the new album from DJ Muggs, following on from his recent successes with DOOM and Meyhem Lauren. Even more pleased to be able to report that the project is another triumph. Muggs has always been a much-respected producer, with artists like Madlib citing him as a huge influence on their sound.

The list of features is testament to the esteem Muggs is held in by the scene as well, with MCs like Raekwon, Mach-Hommy, Hus Kingpin and DOOM all bringing their A-game to the project. The album is available to stream below and you can also buy it via Soul Assassins.
Brooklyn rap veteran, AZ, has released a powerful new video for his track, Save Them. The audio was leaked a few weeks ago and features fellow NY heavyweights, Raekwon and Prodigy.
