Bit of a special release here, as Farma G – aka Farma Beats – unites with his son, Remus, for Est. 92. Having Task Force blood in your veins from the off was pretty much a guarantee that you were going to be a killer on the mic and that is exactly how Remus developed over the years. He’s shelled down appearances on SBTV, as well as highly notable guest features for the likes of Ocean Wisdom. Now he enters that rare breed of inter-generational collaboration and the result is pretty special. Five tracks with vocals by both Farma & Son, as well as full production from Farma throughout. A pleasure to see this happen and an additional pleasure to hear it work so well. You can stream the EP below and downloads are available via Bandcamp.

As I mentioned last week, Farma Beats has been working on a new album and now we get to indulge ourselves in its full splendour, following its official release yesterday. Featuring a strong list of MCs from both the UK and the US, The Sentimental Alien is built on some of Farma’s strongest production to date and the calibre of the beats has enticed the guests involved to bring their best pen game to the project.
There are features from Lee Scott, Salar, Anyway Tha God, Smellington Piff, Remus, Flashius Clayton, Dirty Dike, Skuff and a whole load more. You can stream the album below and you can download it over on Bandcamp, where you can also find a bit more background information on how it all came to be.

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.
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. But it is a rarity these days for an unsigned rapper, especially from the UK, to clock over a million views on his debut video. Continue reading “Ocean Wisdom: Chaos 93”
Farma G shared this track a couple of days ago, which he says has been sitting on his hard drive for a long time. Produced by The Purist and titled with his and Chester P’s respective birthdays, this track is a moving account of his upbringing and subsequent years, dealing with things like his relationship with his parents and the birth of his first son, Aaron aka Remus.
