Chima Anya Live, Ryan Turner, Demrick, Armani of York, Mellow Music and Orie Pierre New Hiphop

We kick off this time around with the live video version of "What Now" Chima's lively anthem with an healthy call to arms to live life to the full whilst questioning everything whilst still smiling for the camera. Real music as ever from the doctor.

Ryan Turner, producer from Norfolk, VA recently sent me this tasty beat tape through his 'Click N Spark' productions company that rolls along very smoothly, not suprising as he has recently worked with hiphop legends Nappy Roots for their 'Sh!t's Beautiful Mixtape. A real proponant of making good music organically, he is up for these beats to be taken and used as long as credit is properly given; as he says "You never know what could be a hit until it is created"; true indeed so emcees out there have a dig through and see what magic you can make (before I get off this blog and do it my damn self :D!! )


And now, I must admit my day job has been breaking my balls lately and as such a massive bag of mail has been accumulating leaving precious little time to listen to let along comment on some of the illness that has been coming through. Suffice to say hiphop is well and truly vibrant in the underground. Some efforts havent quite made the cut this time around; if you're an artist or company who has made a submission but not been featured please don't stop the sending music through, next time it may get a prominant feature! For now how could I not kick off with this ill track to my favourite colour (ever since I discovered it was the favoured ink of Roman Emporors; everyone has a little dictator complex hidden somewhere)

Pharoe Monch hosts Brand New Mixtape plus DJ Dister and Mr Composition


If you feel like your lyric tanks is running a bit empty fill up on this hard hitting heavy dose of rap music, a New Years present in the form of a mix tape hosted by Pharoahe brining some of his best tracks alongside a slew of new comers, established artists and more. Bought to us by Tha Advocate this is almost 3 hours of straight up ill hiphop, with a few knowing nods such as the feature of "The Trash Bin" a great little snippet of a more mainstream styled current track getting boo'd off....ah sweet hate helps purity! 

Got a big back log of heat to get through over next few weeks but this banger from Mr Composition smacked me in the face the other day so needed to bang this one out. Grown people lyrics and lovely production, check it!



Wanja from I Still Love H.E.R. consistently hits Vocalswords up with treats and the recent offerings from DJ Dister have got my vertebrae's clicking out of shape. Check the vids then check Dister's latest album, it bangs rediculous.

Shopping Inferno plus Late Gifts from Dizraeili, Fountain of Youth, Granville Sessions and Anacron

Yo! Before we get into the hiphop realm I thought I'd just post this little image I threw together; I tweeted it and it's having an unusual amount of success so fingers crossed it sends a few interested readers this way; who knows it might even create a few new hiphop fans! Spot the Difference! Dante's version of Hell versus Boxing Day at Westfield!



And now to more familiar territory! Greetings all I hope this finds all hiphop heads around the world in a relaxed mood; here in blighty the Christmas spirit is fighting through despite some pretty grim weather and a plague of tonsilitus through Vocalswords Villas. Koaste picked up Dizraeli's christmas eve take on the Queen speech so to get your mind lubricated please get round the fire, roast some nuts and enjoy.....



Now the first full length present comes from thoses Boston whipper snappers 'Fountain of Youth' who have taken over thier local Chinatown to film their latest heater.



Next up is a real treat that I'm glad I checked out early from the mailbag, still have a ton of stuff to get through but for me this is a real hip hop classic, check it out from Anacron...



My brothers from the Granville Sessions recorded this a while back and I'm not sure how long its been roaming online but they posted it in an xmas tweet so I thought I'd spread the seasonal cheer...check the B-Boy poses at the end; not sure if Crazy Legs would co-sign but keeping the culture in the hearts and minds of the people is the main thing!!

Endemic, Dudley Perkins, Knightstalker, B.o.B, Chris Brown and more all getting busy


Dudley Perkins has just release his latest LP "Dr Stokely" and it's a 100% existential banger. Im about four tracks in listening via the Mello Music bandcamp page and already need to dip in the pockets for credit card to buy this bad boy! Great off the wall beats with incisive but mad imaginative lyrics; get involved! 


One of Deutschland's finest Nightstalker has just released an EP produced by Falling Down & Nasty who provide some heavyweight Shoalin inspired beats while NS and compadres get down to business spitting some very decent bars. "Times have Changed" is particularly heavy and notable as a bit of a Killarmy reunion; 9th Prince links with Wu affiliate Dark Skinned Assassain who both make  striking appearances with that classic flow. Get it free at the link above. 


Go crazy to this......B.O.B. looks to be making it into the bigtime nowadays; a phenomenam when I saw him back at Hiphop Kemp a good few years back; he's rocking to a hype jam, not particularly inspiring lyric wise but it's got that massive sound that might get people interested in checking out his body of work, where a lot of gems are hidden including the collab he recently did with Eminem. He does get down with a pretty funny number reference but other than that pure club!    http://mp3waxx.com/jobfolders/bobthrowback/index.html


And just through the inbox; Endemic is gearing up for the release of "Terminal Illness 2"....the first installment was definitely a classic so looking forward to this release, not sure how many UK features are on this one but will wait and see; in the meantime get an earful of this.....
