Ras Kass "Definition of a Raw Spitter"

Doing what it says on the tin Rassy goes extra hard on this banger with a nice concept video; classic Menace nod too...

7evenThirty ft Sleepy Will & Kamikaze

Taken from "Heavens Computer" concept LP, 7evenThirty comes hard on "Mysterious Business" ft Sleepy Will and hits a cord with anyone tired of turning on the radio to hear the same artists again and again..."Original, what the fuck is that?" This callabo track takes the rap music industry to task from the point of view of hardcore independent lyricists. Trying to get rich off rap, rapping about selling drugs but wearing "jeans uncomfortably snug" these guys are calling out some serious failings in the culture. "I feel like giving up" is one of the disillusioned opening lines in this track, but these guys really shouldn't. Smooth flows over a wicked moody beat, (I cant embed the audio at the moment...holla at solocypher@gmail.com if you can help)....so click the link above and go check it!

Azaelia Banks - Van Vogue

Azealia Banks has been blowing up lately and this new video has obviously been given a bigger budgets than her previous work. I'll be honest I'm not 100% sure what her flow is all about but the fact she goes in and loves emceeing is good enough for me, and the eye candy appeal is just too much for me to resist
I heard some Has-Lo a while back and enjoy his laid back yet postive style. This animated video does a great job of bringing his quirky flow on 'Inherit the Stars' to life, riffing on art, racism and whatever else Has feels like spitting!

Hardcore Special.....Kaniva - Warrior Freestlye

Parental guidance advised; the following text and videos can be considered offensive Shiittt....My middle class politically correct side kicked in as I first listened to this new set of bars from Kuniva; horrible violent, misogynistic attack rap; but as the whole rap kicks in I just couldnt help wildin' out, as they say.  This is that real hardcore rugged rap shit, take it as you will :) Hmmmm something about the duality of man quote here.....
 Ab Soul Black Lip Bastard ft Fendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and J Rock come through equally hard on this Rocksmith track; and arguably with J Rock coming through with the strongest flow of all, you make up your minds

What If....Rudyard Kipling gets a fresh overhaul

Just watched a very entertaining and inspiring take on Rudyard Kiplings classic poem 'If' with Noel Clarke using the classic verse to help inspire a troubled young man to see what can be achieved when the effort is made. Ridiculously sick Parkour, BMX skills, beatboxing, street art and sick flows from among many including Brum's fire spitter RtKal this is an excellent expose of UK talent, from a century ago breathing through to today. Good to see real talent being given a platform. Watch it HERE
