A banging beat, as you'd expect from Metabeats, and some off-the-wall lyricism, as you'd expect from Willo - it's 'Lollipop Lady's Favourite' from Willo Wispa. I know you'll want to buy it so head over to itunes now to get your download on. And then sit and wait patiently for his full length to drop - can't wait. You can also get the track here for less I believe.
I'm always on the lookout for something a little different to dilute my Hip Hop listening and this track from Caspa really does the trick. I imagine that if I could actually be bothered to go out these days then I'd enjoy some form of dancing to this.

Now I won't usually post these videos where there's not anything actually to watch but what you get to hear is more than enough! New group Four Max go in hard and have a lot of fun on their new track 'How It's Done'. The group is made up of Beit Nun (MC), Chris Leese (MC / Producer), Jane Ellis (Vocals) and Benny E (DJ). Keep your ears open for more from these four.

Here's something a little blissed out for you to do what you choose with. I'd advise listening to it but hey, if you can think of something else to do with it then go ahead and do that. If you like it then head over to Bandcamp to buy it!
Love this track - perfect production for a sunny July and two MCs absolutely on point. The beat is by Baron Samedi and the track is taken from the album 'Life Music' which drops later in the year on his own BTS Recordings. It is entirely produced by Baron Samedi and features Kyza, Verb-t, Genesis Elijah, Iron Braydz and more. Watch out for a proper official video for this very soon.
You can get the download for this free - now that is a gift you can't refuse:

Check Mystro's latest happy Hip Hop offering - niceness flows like quicksilver of this guy's tongue. Go buy it now at Amazon if you want to.
Lee Ramsey (of Outdaville) is back with a more commercial vibe. Here's the video for 'Oh My Dayz' which is taken from the Lowstarr EP 'In The Search of the Light'.

Hehehe. Love the remix bit!
If you like your Hip Hop raw, hard and heavy then these days Yorkshire wouldn't be a strange place to find it. It's the turn of Just Cause Recordings to provide the latest slab of rock solid Rap.
MC Nayben and producer Cyber Ninja hook up for the double serving of 'Honour Killing' and 'Hard To Swallow' all presented on one 12" platter. Both tracks have a dark backdrop but are built up of entirely different elements making for a united pair of tunes that keep things interesting. Lyrically, Nayben has got the skills, no doubt. He sticks to his 'Honour Killing' concept like the proverbial glue and rides the beat like a... jockey?! 'Hard To Swallow' has a real upbeat percussion pattern which strangely works well with the menacingly deep strings in the background.
The recording issues of their 'Raw Cuts' compilation are no longer a problem - this is crystal clear, perfectly EQ'd and in my opinion, sounds so much better for being on wax.
Listen to samples of the tracks here then hop over to Suspect Packages or the Just Cause shop to purchase yourself a copy.

As far as I'm concerned ‘Back To The Sagas’ doesn’t have its own ‘It’s Murda’ - let’s just clear that up before we begin this review. It’s all too easy for fans to force artists to live in the shadow of their greatest work but this shouldn’t be.
The fact is, Klashekoff has created a superior album which runs circles around most of the
Perhaps the track many Klash fans wanted to hear was the one which explains certain things that happened in the last few years – ‘Back To The Sagas Intro’, wisely Klash does this then gets on with things. ‘Tek Time’, ‘Music Game’, ‘Klash Anthem’ and the leaked ‘Paper Up’ all stand out although it’s much better to see this album as a whole; it’s more like one long track just with different rhythms, hooks, melodies and tempos.
‘Back To The Sagas’ is available now as a download and the CD will be out later on this month.
