Nutty P ft. Rodney P: Trials of Babylon

Big tune here from Nutty P as he tackles the topic of racism in the UK capital, while also outlining how it was growing up as a black child and being made to feel like a foreigner in your own country. He’s joined by UK vet, Rodney P, as the pair trade verses over some superb reggae inspired production. The video was made by Chiba Visuals.

Seanie T ft. Roots Manuva, Rodney P, Blak Twang, Ragga Twins, Tony D & More: Veterans

Absolute monster of a track from Seanie T, as he gathers up fellow veterans from across the genres for this sprawling posse cut. The list of participants is impressive, with more years of service than I can count, under their collective belts. Roots Manuva, Rodney P, Blak Twang, Ragga Twins, Tony D, Ty, MC Creed, Hill Street Soul and Ricky Rankin are just a few of the 20+ artists involved, all backed up by some nice production from DJ Suro and Seanie T. Veterans is lifted from Seanie’s Rough, Rugged & Smooth album, which saw its release earlier this year.

Rodney P: The Next Chapter

New material from the Godfather of UK Hip Hop, as Rodney P treats us to the a-side from his upcoming 7″.

Rodney also looks at how the game has evolved since he first started making music.

KINGDEM: The Conversation (Video)

UK veterans Rodney P, Blak Twang and TY return with a video for their previously released track, The Conversation (We Ain’t Done Yet). If you weren’t already aware, the trio recently toured the UK under the group name KINGDEM and in the process they have recorded some new music together. The Conversation is produced by Nutty P and the video was made by George Malsbury and Ernest Simons. The track is taken from their forthcoming EP and is available to stream/download from the usual platforms.

Rodney P x Ty x Blak Twang: The Conversation (We Ain’t Done Yet)

Off the back of the current Kingdem tour comes this new single from the three UK legends. The Conversation is produced by Nutty P and is lifted from a Kingdem EP which is due for release in the not too distant future. Had the pleasure of catching their show last week and it was one of the best I’ve been to in a while, so definitely make the effort if you see them coming to your town.
