As the anticipation grows for the new Verbz album, the Croydon MC has gifted us another video from the project. Cards Dealt is produced by Arthurr and the video was made by Morriarchi and Norm Oddity. The Pathways LP is due for release shortly on Group Bracil.
New music from one of my favourites, as Verbz blesses the start of our week with the second single from his upcoming album. Run Run follows on from Still Here, which was released six months ago and highlighted the MC’s new relationship with the Group Bracil label. This latest joint also features a couple of guest spots from Bador and BaggE, as well as some jazz tinted production from Purple Clouds. The video was made by Honey JD.
London rapper, C.A.M, returns to the fore with a new video and a new EP, following on from last year’s Persian Rugs project. Once again C.A.M delivers a weighty batch of solid boom bap, showcasing his ever-increasing competence and confidence on the mic. Just Breathe is produced in full by Bristol beat maker, BigLikeBaz, with the duo finding a highly successful partnership between their respective talents. Continue reading “C.A.M ft.

Next month the Concorde 2 in Brighton plays host to a number of UK rap luminaries, as they gather in the Southern city in support of a very good cause. For the past few years the Bimiri Foundation have been trying to secure enough funding to build a water pipeline for the Nepalese village of Bimiri. It should go without saying that everyone in the world has the right to clean water access, but as we all know this is very from the reality of the hardships a lot of people have to face every day.

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.
A welcome return for Verbz as he kicks off the run up to his new album, with a fresh track – Still Here. Produced by Morriarchi, the track is lifted from the full-length project which is due out on Group Bracil soon. More news as and when.
Lewis Parker – aka The Man With the Golden Sound – is back with a new EP. When It Rains It Pours is the title track and features one of Croydon’s finest, Verbz. The pair go verse for verse over some classic sounding LP production, all horns and keys. The When It Rains It Pours EP is out now on KingUnderground.
Another strong track to be lifted from the Mr Slipz album, which dropped recently on Yogocop Records. For Sketches, Slipz teams up with Verbz again, following on from their excellent collaborative Lessons of Adolescence LP, which came out last year. The video was shot by Ringz Ov Saturn. It Don’t Stop is available to buy now from the Yogocop store.
Looks like it’s going to be another great year for the Yogocop family, if the first single from Mr Slipz’s upcoming album is anything to go by. Mic Loud features two blistering verses from Vitamin G and Verbz, all backed up with Slipz’s tough production and finished off with a strong video from Ringz Ov Saturn. Pre-orders for the album are available now via the Yogocop Records store and the release date is set for 1 March.
