Slademan posted a link to this promo trailer for Skriblah DanGogh's new album 'Little White Dot' over at MPC Forums. The video only has a snippet of album track 'Revalations' at the very end which was produced by Slademan as well as future single 'LWD' but what you get visually makes it worth the wait. Check out and explore Skriblah's website by clickin on the blueness above for more information and loads of dope music. Luckily we wont have to wait too long to find out "What is waiting at the end of the darkness…?'' as the album is due to drop in the summer so thats soon...ish in my opinion

Another track from the Random Axe LP surfaced on Duck Downs soundcloud last week. Random Call as I hope youd expect is yet more proof that this project is gonna be one of the biggest to drop this year. Black Milk's smooth on the hook with a lazy 8 bar Guilt and P dont dissapoint on the verses either. The highly anticipated album is released on June 14th so get your pre orders in or make a date in your calender, you better have a good reason not too.

Glasto producer Hirolla is mixing with the big boys on this banger featuring Philly and Boston underground stalwarts Slaine, Vinnie Paz and Reef the Lost Cauze. Landscapes will be on Slaines next album A World with no Skies available on August 16th. A classicly cut common bar provides the hook echoeing Premos traditional steeze. The boom bap of the kick/snare and prominant hats stay close to MCs usual backdrop, think snowgoons and AOTP on a good day. Hirolla delivers true school stylings and a splash of golden era checkout his soundcloud out for more cross-atlantic business. You can also follow the player to hulkshare to snap up Landscapes for free.

I posted a little before this dropped but didnt actually post the link to the free D/L of Trials of the Blackhearted so here it is. I downloaded this when it first came out and I listen to War Stories at least once a day, the track is up there with shook ones, dragon kings, manimals and krazy. The rest of the album is dope save for Peaceful where the usually on point Krondon misses the mark on hook duties. DJ Khalil, not to be confused with Miami lamo DJ Khaled, weaves instrumentation, samples and cuts with wall shaking drums and neck snapping patterns. Chace Infinate can speak on any subject with bags of style while asserting his views and thoughts with wisdom and authority. Everywhere I Go, Gods Language, Verses vs Versus and War stories are exceptional songs and should not be slept on the album has everything you could possibly want or expect from an established group like Self Scientific and they're literally giving this away. ''Come in peace, prepare for war....''
Dragon of an Ordinary Family coming soon

Unfortunately Im not as bigger cheese as alot of these other bloggers so I wish I could give it the old ''yeah Ive already heard Jehst's new album I got it for free....blah blah'' but sadly I cant I can however bring to your attention the snippets and artwork online to get you ready for its early June release date. From the teeny tiny bits Ive heard it sounds like the 5 or 6 year wait for a new LP proper from Jehst has been well worth it. Im a little dissapointed to see there are no features on the album as Jehst works so well with so many other MCs and it usually brings a more varied sound having said that the huddersfield to kent to london lyricist has a magnitude of incredible solo work and with producers like chemo, beat butcha and lg as well as himself theres very little chance of another nuke dropping. Keep em peeled cos thisll be out before you know it.
*edit not sure why but it appears that every link Ive posted to snippet sources have now been removed Ive switched it to Suspect Packages and Amazon now as I doubt theyll be taken down there....seems strange they dont want anyone to hear the album or parts of it, unless its a technically/web problem. Its a shame because itll only strenghthen anticipation and exposure for this album. Oh well if you dont want free promo taking down the links is the best way to loose it.

Conspicuous or Cons as hes currently goin under has put in alot of work and put out some classic material in his time, from gems like Therapy with the legendary Colony to anthems like Want Me Back hes always delivered that authentic, soulfull, true school sound. June Bug Soon Come offers a taster of his next LP proper ''June Bug'' that will be released on June the 6th, bet you didnt see that coming. Cons reunites with Colony members willo, smurf and grimlock as well as regular collaborators seanie t and TB. Cons hasnt slept on the production either with Apa-Tight, 7th Dan, Jabba Tha Kut and himself on the beats. After a quick 1st listen I wasnt dissapointed at all Cons doesnt shift to far from his usual autobiographical social commentary, hes quick to cut a popstar down and always seeking recognition and respect. The dude knows how to pick and make a dope beat too he also works-in original and catchy hooks often blending vocal samples to great effect. As a LP this mixtape is pretty good as a free mixtape, proberly consisting of tracks that didnt make the album cut, this is exceptional and free HERE
Hip hop the way its meant to be.
With only a few features,Tenchoo proves hes well able to hold down an album without any big features.
16 songs for only £5 you cant go wrong.
Have a listen here,you wont be disappointed

I know Professor Elemental is not going to be everyone's cup of tea (aaagh, sorry had to be done), but I must say I'm a bit of a sucker for anything involved with Tea Sea Records. This project is basically a compilation of remixes of Elemental tracks from over the years. To be frank, it is rather inconsistent. But Elemental is unique, and for that alone he should be applauded.

Kyza tears through Dillas Cold Steel beat he sticks with Phat Kats original concept even including a warning of the dangers of guns at beginning. Amos Jones's simple rhyme highlights and close up shots keep up with the pace of Kyzas rhymes and makes the one take video more interesting. Always been a big Kyza fan Im glad he's still making dope music. Keep an eye out for more from Amos' Freestyle Sessions if the rest are anywhere near as good as this itll be worth it.

Skuff gives one of the best tracks off his Deep Covers EP the visual treatment. The hazey filters and grainy film effects work really well with the tone of this track (f a budget!). Apparently Skuff is finishing off a new solo album that will be dropping soon and will be playing some festivals with Bioviolence this season so keep 'em peeled
As one half of the group Soul Junkies Ive been preparing to realese our next LP with Demigod. We've almost finished the album which will be titled ''SOUL JUNK'' and hopefully ready for release by the summer. It featuers artists from Greece, America and around the UK, Starin at the Wall is a horror concept track (the only one on the lp) the video features one verse from the completed track you will be able to hear the rest on the album. I made the stop motion video a couple months ago with a kidrobot Munny and some other stuff lying around the house...for the record it took forever but it was really rewarding when I finally put it together. Apologies for the self promotion but you gotta believe in your own product right?....anyway enjoy and keep 'em peeled for the lp over the next couple months.

A new EP here from a duo that have been posted previously on Certified Banger over the years. They go by the name of Soldjasoulz.
Soldjasoulz consist of Redeye and DPF. DPF is a name you should already be familiar with having made a huge mark on the scene over the years. His release ‘It will Never Catch On’ , released via Son records, went on to receive number 39 position in Hip Hop Connections top 40 albums of the year back in 2008.
As for Redeye he has also been mentioned on this blog for his work with Chronicredeye. The release ‘Knowledge is King’ featured Main Flow and Bronze Nazareth and Redeye has also teamed up with Hell Razah. Definatly names to be proud of sharing beats with.
This release ‘Your Mum Loves Reggae’ is a five track EP showcasing the two MCs over beats ranging from dancehall to rap. Each MC brings their own style and both impress with flows and bars throughout. The standout track for me is ‘Blaze it up’, a summer anthem for anyone who enjoys a good smoke. Franko Fraize features on the track ‘Now Sush’ and Tricksta shows up for production duties on ‘Heavy Manners’.
This has already received an impressive number of plays in the little time it has been online.
Go have a listen your self and see what all the fuss is about.
This time its a P thing with some classic Sean P, remixes and some newer music.

Here is a brand new single from Styly Cee & Cappo, which will be the title track off their upcoming album. The album is a follow up to 2008's H-Bomb EP, and if this track is anything to go by, then we can expect very similar material to that EP.
