It’s a good day for hip hop, as Ronnie Bosh’s debut solo LP is finally released. Having been a major contributor to the scene for a long time, thanks to his Contact Play affiliation and the numerous features it spawned, Bosh has built up a solid fanbase who have all been crying out for a full-length project. All People Expect is the perfect answer to those cries, with Bosh’s baritone flows perfectly lacing Dike’s production; the result of years of collaborations between the two of them, including on the Dike-produced My Business by Rag’N’Bone Man.

Following on from a triumphant set at the High Focus Block Party on Saturday, CMPND bless us with a brand new video as they continue to build the hype for their debut LP. Paraphrase is the third track to emerge since the crew announced their signing to HF and sees the trio reuniting with long-term friend and collaborator, Verbz. The track is produced by Wundrop and the video was made by This & That Media.
Another huge track from Baileys Brown as the release date for his solo album draws ever nearer. This time round, the Bristol producer has drafted in his old accomplice, Datkid, as well as his label-mate, Dabbla, with the trio going off in pursuit of that elusive cash money. And once again it’s another stunning visual accomplishment from This & That Media (keep your eyes peeled for plenty of UKHH related cameos too). The album, Still Fresh, is due for release on 26 July on Potent Funk.
Yesterday CMPND served up another taster from their forthcoming full-length project, as they continue to build on the much warranted hype. As usual it’s Wundrop on the beat and vocals, as well as more exemplary mic work from Vitamin G and Kemastry. The video was made by This & That Media. You can stream Flight 370 on all the usual platforms.
Another surprise drop from SMB favourite, Ronnie Bosh, as he returns with a newly crafted banger in the form of You Know. Once again it’s Dirty Dike on the beat and the video was made by This & That Media. No release date for the album yet, but I’m sure it can’t be too far off.
Friday saw the release of what will no doubt be one of the rawest albums of 2019, courtesy of Datkid and Leaf Dog, along with the next video from the project, Cook Book. The video was made by This & That Media. Confessions of a Crudlord is available now on High Focus and you can stream it in full below. Continue reading “Datkid & Leaf Dog: Cook Book + Album Stream”
High Focus’s latest signing kick off their residency with a brand new video for Whatuplayin@. If you don’t know, CMPND consists of MCs Kemastry, Vitamin G and Wundrop, who also handles production. Whatuplayin@ is a grimy little intro to the crew and a good indicator of things to come. The video was made by This & That Media.
As anticipation grows for the new Datkid album, today saw the release of the second video from the project. Eyes features Griselda heavyweight, Conway, as well as a verse from the album’s sole producer, Leaf Dog. The video was made by This & That Media. Confessions Of A Crudlord is coming soon on High Focus.
Very pleased to see this drop into my various timelines this morning – a solo single from one of my favourite MCs, Ronnie Bosh. Produced by fellow SMB compadre, Dirty Dike, I am hoping this is a sign that we have a full-length solo effort on the way; something that has been notably absent from the UK scene for a while. The video was made by This & That Media.
Another audio visual treat from the upcoming Onoe Caponoe album, as the intergalactic cat lord returns with his latest single, Valentines Massacre. Once again it’s Jae Genius on the beat, with the ever capable This & That Media on video duties. Surf or Die is set for release on 29 March on High Focus.
