Here we go, fancy some nice organic goodness in the form of a quality UK Hip-Hop six track EP? Tight beats, ill cuts and bars delivered with precision and sincerity? Then this my friend is for you! This collection of six tracks is killer from the Wu Tang inspired bangers to the 9th Wonder-esque ‘Truth In You’ featuring Gemma Anderson. The crew is made up of King Soloman who really goes in with the beats, with same punch that producers like Q-Tip has, as well as rappers IC1 & Shang who sound good together but only feature on one track together. Maybe we’ll them on more tracks on their forthcoming projects. On the whole a solid release that real heads will be up on. Make sure you check for this.

Can someone tell me why I am listening to Silqe for the first time? I need a journalistic slap in the face; I have been sleeping on a UK talent that impressed me. He has that 90’s Era thing going on, that truthful honest approach to music rather than just rapping about ‘street life’ (yawn), Silqe steps it up, inspiring with bars and words chosen with precision.
This EP has so many highlights we where gutted that it wasn’t an album! The beats are hella tight too with Stealf hitting the spot throughout with some good musicality. ‘Hidden Truth’ is exactly what it says on the tin. Here is something that all real heads are really going to enjoy.
De Facto is definitely a label trying to change the general conception of Hip-Hop in the UK. This is positive creative inspiring quality hip-hop music that is better than the rest. Don’t moan about the state of Hip-Hop when there are releases like this to purchase.

Multiple Skillz is a talented individual who is almost like a one man industry himself, creating, writing and releasing music for the hip-hop nation. There are so many good things about this rapper, his distinctive flow and style and his ability to make songs with really catchy hook lines. Here he has teamed up with J Dot Muzik, a producer I don’t know that much about but trust me when I say this kid is on point. Together they go through five tracks that all bounce nice and above all there’s one major factor in this release being good… this EP entertained and enlightened me. Whatever you’re doing, stop and download this now, this is quality home-grown music with originality.

Do you remember the good old days when Hip-Hop sounded organic and the artist you listened to actual said thing that you agreed with? I feel like that moment just happened again. I had a Diamond D, Pete Rock and Lord Finesse type vibe when I heard the quality of the beats and as for the bars, hooks and songs, to say this is the bomb is an understatement. I am proper feeling this dude. Real Hip-Hop just got a new wave. Download this NOW.

The UK is bubbling over with talent at the moment but here is a release that you really need to check. It’s not ‘boombap hip-hop’ and it’s not ‘UK Grime’, its kind of somewhere in-between. It has the lyrical capacity of a Stateside USA release and the intricate flows and delivery of a seasoned UK Rapper. High quality bars and killer songs is the vibe here.
It has something special and the tracks really bang from the start. Its nice when an EP is fully rounded as in the artwork is tight as well as the production and the mixing down. Jack Da Union has got mad skills and this EP just backs that statement.
With so many rappers in the UK trying to get noticed it must be hard for anyone trying to break into the industry, but from a media point of view, I think the way to do it is to be original, don’t jack beats, start your own situation and grind hard. That’s why this artist for us ticks all the boxes.

Toronto hip hop artist MC FÜBB began writing poetry at the age of nine, years before he ever picked up the microphone. His latest release, the poet EP, is a thematic return to his roots as a poet. Throughout the album, FÜBB struggles to reconcile himself as both a poet and a rapper, painting verbal images and evoking strong emotions while staying true to himself as a hip hop emcee. the poet is an honest look into the psyche of a hip hop artist and more fundamentally a human being as he tries to find his way in the world. The poet EP is the third official solo non-mixtape album released by Toronto hip hop artist MC FÜBB since 2009. The EP features production by Junia-T, Fresh Kils, MMAC, Justunlimited, Noyz, Bix, and NTG and has guest artist appearances by Wordsworth, Relic, Mike Devine, J Shiltz, Bad Newz, DJ Docta, and DJ Uncle Fester.

More good stuff from AC this time with producer Otee The Scoundral who goes in hard with quality beats. AC’s unique vocal tone and ability to flip flows is something that makes his music appealing, he also chats a lot of sense touching on subjects and concepts that maybe other emcees wouldn’t, or in some cases couldn’t do. There’s enough top music her to enlighten you more and the songs bang, so if you like UK Hip-Hop make sure you get this now.
