Like so many of his 90’s rap predecessors, Salar is one of those talented cats who despite appearing on a whole load of different releases over the years and amassing something of a cult-like status in the process, has yet to put out a solo release. That is until now.
I know from speaking with the Blah MC in the past, that he has been steadily working on perfecting his solo album and now we seem to be nearing the fateful date, as today saw the release of a new solo video. Read the rest of this entry »

Here is the next instalment from the eagerly awaited Cult of the Damned album. Salt Water is produced by Sam Zircon and features some typically deft bars from Bisk, Lee Scott, Salar, Stinkin Slumrok and Black Josh. The COTD album is scheduled for release this Friday and I can tell you now, it is most definitely worth your attention. Pre-orders are available here.

With the wave of their recent comeback video still riding high and with the imminent arrival of their Part Deux: Brick Pelican Posse Crew Gang Syndicate album, Cult of the Damned have announced a UK tour. The crew will be passing through six cities in total, over three consecutive weekends in April and May. It is going to be a full gang experience, with Lee Scott, Milkavelli, Black Josh, Stinkin Slumrok, Sniff, Salar, Sly Moon, Barebase, King Grubb, Bill Shakes, Bisk and Tony Broke on the bill, as well as a special UK appearance from Canada’s own cult associate, Danny Lover. Plus Reklews, Sam Zircon, Jazz T and Sumgii holding down the decks.

There had been rumours circulating that COTD were coming back with new material and then they were confirmed with the announcement that we would get a new video today. And sure enough, I woke up to find Civilised plastered over multiple timelines.
It is definitely full gang, as Barebase, King Grubb, Salar, Bill Shakes, Lee Scott, Black Josh, Milkavelli, Stinkin Slumrok and Sniff all drop verses, with Sam Zircon and Bisk handling production. Suitably grimy aesthetic, further cementing Blah and their various off-shoots as the no fucks given older brother of some of the other UK rap labels. The excellent single take video was made by aboveGround.

It’s easy to lose track of Lee Scott’s various projects and which songs relate to which releases because he brings out so many in quick succession. If you’ve ever read any interviews with the Blah MC, then you will know that he literally doesn’t know how to stop making music and as a result he is always sitting on about four or five projects.
DONOVAN is the latest track to be lifted from his SUPERGOD5000 project, which was released at the end of last year. The track is produced by DEW8 and features fellow Blah boys, Will Sniff, Stinkin Slumrok and Salar. The video was filmed by Lyza.

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. Read the rest of this entry »

Your friendly local cult leader and rap don, Lee Scott, just released his brand new project. Humbly titled SUPERGOD5000PLUS, the EP is eight tracks strong, with Estonian production entity, DEW8, handling all the beats. We have already been treated to two videos, which emerged in quick succession last week and I’m happy to confirm the rest of the EP/album/whatever you want to call it follows in the same fashion. Loads of features from Sniff, Milk, Slumrok, Salar, Black Josh and Nah Eeto. You can stream the whole thing below and you can cop a download over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

A few weeks ago Lee Scott & Salar reunited in their original form as Antiheroes and gifted us two new singles, Godnose and Disasterpiece. Now they’re back for round two, with another double hitter in the form of Glass House and No Sleep Till Mars.
Once again Farma G is behind the boards, a place you can find him more and more these days as he racks up production credits for a whole ton of people, including the infamous Mach Hommy. Is this the sign of a new Antiheroes album on the way? Most likely. Lee is always working on about 15 projects at a time, so reckon that will be on the list. For now though enjoy these two new cuts

Here is the second part of my Lee Scott interview. I was beginning to think it was cursed due to how many problems it’s given me. But here it is, finally. To give you a bit of background, we had been planning to do an interview for a while, but timing had never been right. Then Lee messaged me one Friday night while I was on the way to my girl’s house. He said he’d been up since 5am and so it would be a good time to chat shit. So I rang him and we spoke for an hour about all the stuff you see below and in the first part (which you can find here). Loads of stuff about the early Blah days, meeting Milk for the first time and what projects he has lined up for the future. Read the rest of this entry »

You wait six years for a new Antiheroes track and then two turn up at once. It was in 2011 that Lee Scott and Salar released their last project under the moniker, Antiheroes, but rumours of new material had been in my mind ever since I spoke with Lee and Salar at the end of last year. Those rumours came to fruition today, with the release of two new tracks, both of which are produced by Task Force veteran, Farma G. No word on a full length project yet, but make the most of these for now.
