Toofless featuring Capone, Redbeard, SK, Sam Stealth, Kashae Rae and London's Lyracist Lounge

Check this bumper post of freshness on what could be the first (possibly) summer day of 2012 in Blighty. Unusually for Vocalswords we begin looking over to the definitely sunnier environs of the United Arab Emirates.....

Being a bit lazy today, but thought the press release info was worth posting up about Toofless and his new project, as listening to a couple of his tracks Im pretty impressed; so get to know about him here....

Toofless, Toofless & the Dub Poets Collective (DPC) release “Perspective” featuring Capone of Capone-N-Noreaga (CNN)
More than ever today, hip-hop is increasingly taking a front-seat in the world of underground music in the Middle East, with new releases bringing fresh sounds and finely tuned talent.
28-year-old Feras Ibrahim is a UAE-based rapper of Sudanese origins. His hip-hop expression started to materialize at age of 17 after being inspired by acts such as Mos Def, Nas, Lost Boys, Wu Tang, Jehst, 9th Wonder and Talib Kweli. Formerly part of the renowned, forward-thinking and socially conscious hip hop collective ‘Diligent Thought’. Feras Ibrahim is now working on an experimental EP with DPC, Feras also performs regularly and is a vital member of Employees of the Month.
Dub Poets Collective (DPC) employ scores of international, musical and social influences fused into their heartfelt productions. Their music has been featured on many albums, mixtapes, television, documentary films, and major radio stations across the world.
“Perspective” is the highly anticipated single that resulted from the work of the Dub Poets Collective, and MC Toofless (aka Feras Ibrahim), with a spontaneous feature from rapper Capone from CNN. The content and subject matter of the track reflects the contributors’ diverse social realities and lives.

Meanwhile SK, RedBeard and Sam Stealth have been putting their Brummy twist to the state of life in 2012; an abandoned hospital is the setting for the dark vibes on display in  Bad Mannaz - Fresh!

London's Lyriacist Lounge - Elite Leagues cypher smippets are well worth a look; the quality of the emcees involved alongside the ringmaster LeeN of No Long Tings Productions

Big ups to the ever energetic and versatile Kasha Rae who hits us with "Anuva Rap Tune"; with some pertinent digs at the current music scene/industry....I wonder if those suits will take much notice at the moment unfortunately but for me its good to know I'm not the only one pulling faces.....
