The end of last month saw the release of a great project from The Winners collective, as Smoovth and Giallo Point dropped their Medellin album. As the name suggests, there are heavy South American influences throughout the album, as well as enough references to make this a suitable soundtrack for Narcos. There are a ton of guest spots, including notable appearances by Vinnie Paz, Planet Asia and SonnyJim. The album is available to stream below, with vinyl and digi downloads available here.

Check out the latest leak from Must Volkoff’s upcoming Aquanaut album. Featuring EatGood founder and all round legit baller, SonnyJim, Psychedelic Purple is one in a long list of sure to be dope tracks from the LP. Other features include Mongo, Joker Starr, Mnsr Frites, Jehst and Chester P, alongside many more dope artists, so definitely one to check when it drops on 26 May on Pang Productions. Pre-orders are available here.
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.
SonnyJim made an appearance on Brapp TV this week, as he delivered a performance of one of the tracks from his critically acclaimed Mud in my Malbec LP. $cramble is produced by Ayepee and features Da$h on the original album version. I recently interviewed Sonny for Brapp, which you can read here.
New video from SonnyJim and his excellent Mud in my Malbec LP. This time it’s one of my favourites from the album, Dorchester featuring the inimitable Quelle Chris. Great animation style in the video too, courtesy of Ewen Farr, who reinterprets a classic Pulp Fiction scene. It was premiered over on Pigeons & Planes on Wednesday.
I like to think I have my finger relatively on the pulse when it comes to UK rap, but a few releases somehow pass me by, like this new LP from SonnyJim & Sleaze. This is the follow up to their 2011 Work in Mnemonics EP. Sleaze is sadly residing at Her Majesty’s pleasure at the moment, but Sonny had made a promise that this project would see the light of day and he stuck to his word. Continue reading “Sleaze & SonnyJim: Paranoid City”
Another impressive leak from the new SonnyJim album, as he teams up with Queens native & Das Racist alumni, Heems. Al Jazeera premiered on The Fader earlier this week and seems to have gone down well on both sides of the Atlantic. Just about to get my first listen of the Mud in my Malbec LP, so expect to hear more on that from me very soon.
As you will be aware the hotly anticipated album from SonnyJim is due out at the end of this month and to keep fiends like me satisfied in the meantime, Nah Right premiered two tracks at the weekend. Continue reading “SonnyJim ft. Westside Gunn: Red Mullet”
