Immortal Technique joins Constant Flow on “Moment of Peace” | ‘Ascension’ LP Drops Next Tues (9/02)!

In recent years more than ever, Hip-Hop has been a platform of boasting ones possessions or idea of wealth. While there’s no shame in showing off every so often by toasting to the good life, there’s an ugly truth that needs to be exposed. War, genocide, corruption; these are the things that are leaving a scar in our history books. Whereas some rappers may just gloss over these disasters, Constant Flow is here to tell the whole truth to the masses. Fresh from the release of “Dog Tags,” the 2nd single taken from his Viper Records debut LP, Ascension, CF keeps the momentum rocking with “Moment of Peace,” a sharp tongued reflection of the world examined through real people, not just mass media. As Melanie Fontana supplies a chilling hook that blends effortlessly with the fact-paced instrumental, Viper’s frontman, Immortal Technique, drops a potent series of double time bars that will leave new listeners and long time fans hitting the rewind button. “Moment of Peace” is the 3rd and final leak taken from Ascension, which is set to drop next Tuesday, September 2nd, so check out the track while pre-ordering the album via iTunes!

Intuitive ‘The Shropshire Lad’ (Hosted by @TrickstaUK) #Review @Intuitive96 @UKRunnings @ParkStreetPR

Intuitive from Shrewsbury is building a name for himself in the UK Hip-Hop scene. His debut EP ‘I, Intuitive’ was a release we blogged and supported. Intuitive is a well known battle rapper from the Spitroast league which hosts a bag of talent including Jae Sosa, Trademark Blud, Plain & Simple and many more.

It’s great seeing MC’s grow and for his second release he has teamed up with Tricksta, someone who has been involved in music for decades and has release tapes with Iron Braydz, Big Cakes, M9, Big Narstie, Big Dutty Deeze. ‘The Shropshire Lad’ is a quality UK Hip-Hop twelve tracker with features from US rapper Killah Tal of Motta Gang and UK artists Trademark Blud, Skramz, Reapz, Lordy and Dean Fenton with production from Lab Man, Riddle, Illyah, Khan E.G, Flyin’ Anvil and DJ Mainframe.

There’s killer tracks on here, freestyle cuts like ‘The Shropshire Lad’ and ‘Cross The Borders’ featuring US rapper Killah Tal of Motta Gang really get the tape off to a quality start. Grime fans have to peep ‘Wasted’ featuring Skramz & Reapz and I did laugh at the way he credited is Pound Cake freestyle ‘The Millionth Pound Cake Remix’. It’s not all fun and jokes though and tracks such as ‘Writing Letters’ and ‘Dear Dad’ show a very different side to Intuitive.

The world through the eyes of an eighteen year old who raps with sincerity and humbleness but in a battle would probably bury most of them! The two sides of Intuitive are represented well on the mixtape which is something I was quick to pick up on the more I jammed it.

Intuitive Exclusive #Interview @Intuitive96 @UKRunnings @ParkStreetPR

You’ve just dropped your new mixtape ‘The Shropshire Lad’ with UK Runnings, tell us how that came about.

I’ve been working with the team behind UK Runnings for a while now. I got involved in the #Estatelife series also hosted by Tricksta – sent him over a few tracks for the mixtape series, and soon we were talking about me doing my own UK Runnings mixtape. And now here we are.

How long did it take to create?

This was my Summer project – I came up with the concept in May/June, and started writing tracks immediately. Most of the tracks were finished by the start of August, and from there it was just recording, editing, and changing my mind about stuff. I did that a lot.

What would you say the standout tracks are?

Personally, my favourites are ‘This Is Your Time’, the Pound Cake remix I did (because everybody has done one) and I’m really really happy with Wasted and Cross The Borders ‘cause Reapz, Skramz and Killah Tal fucking murdered their verses! But I’m happy with every track on the CD, I tried to vary what I was doing with every track. There’s something for everyone.

Whats the scene like in Shropshire any other artists making noise?

Well I suppose Shropshire isn’t exactly the most poppin’ local scene, but yeah definitely! There’s artists all around the county doing their thing. Firstly, most of the artists who feature on the mixtape live in Shropshire – Skramz, Reapz, Trademark, Dean Fenton, and Lordy, and most of the producers too. Then you’ve got Eye Grade Records from Shrewsbury – go youtube them – that’s Tal, Ali and Jay, they started releasing tunes under that name this year and they’re making some nice moves. There’s a lot of talent in Telford too, Deadscruff productions are killing it. Check out grime artists like Reapz, Skramz, Warlord, ADouble, Gaarza, LukeFlowz, Batez, and the Smokey O’s gang. Warlord just dropped a sick tune called #FREEZING and we’re doing a remix – make sure you look out for that.

Does Shrewsbury have any Hip-Hop nights?

There’s Beat Juice which used to happen at the Vaults – but there haven’t been many events recently. So I guess we’re going to have to put our own events on… Oh, sorry, that was a secret. But yeah, we’re gonna make that happen. So stay locked!

You’ve dropped an EP, now a mixtape, will your next release be an album?

I’m going to make an album, but it won’t be my next release, no. When I release an album I want it to be something I’ll always be able to use as a benchmark for future releases. I’ve got a lot to learn and a lot to do before I’m at that point. But it will happen. Promise.

What do you prefer, recording, performing, writing or battling?

Wow. That’s a hard one. I guess it depends on the vibe. There’s nothing better than the feeling of everyone going nuts at one of your lines in a battle, but then again I love the feeling of performing in front of a sick crowd… And I’m always writing… And recording… Shit, I don’t even know! I love it all.

Do you plan to do any more music videos from the mixtape?

Oh, yes. There will be many music videos coming from this mixtape. The first one is being filmed next week at City of Colours festival in Birmingham, so stay tuned!

Tell us about some of the guests on there.

So we’ve got Killah Tal, who features on Cross The Borders. He’s a dude I know making killer hiphop in the USA and we decided to link up on a track for this mixtape. He’s absolutely sick. Reapz and Skramz are both local rappers, and both killing it – go check out OK! By Skramz and you’ll soon be able to cop the #WHOSDABOSS DVD Reapz features on murking some fools in a few grime clashes. Dean Fenton recorded, mixed and mastered most of the mixtape and also sings the hook on ‘You’ll Never Feel Alone’ – the guy has unlimited talents. Trademark pretty much showed me everything I know and got me to where I am now. I couldn’t have a mixtape without a collab from him. I’m also featuring on his MAD new mixtape Tricks of The Trade – go and google it, bitch! Lordy has found his feet recently and is starting to record tracks – he’s got mad lyricism and comes up with brilliant battle bars – catch him battling Two-Putt on October 4th at Beats+Bars in Wolverhampton.

What producers did you work with?

I worked with lots of different producers on this mixtape – Lab Man, Khan E.G, Flyin’ Anvil, DJ Mainframe, Illyah, and I used beats from Riddle as well. I like using different producers as it means I can experiment with my sound more and try different types of tunes with different vibes. All of these producers are a) fully sick and b) safe guys, all of them, really approachable and easy to work with. There are links to all of their pages on the Shropshire Lad Bandcamp page. GO AND LISTEN.

Do you plan to do any more mixtapes with UK Runnings?

Yes. I. Do. That’s all you need to know. PLENTY more to come.

So when is your next battle or performance?

My next battle is September 6th against Rago Vybez, at City of Colours festival in Birmingham. I’ll be visiting Birmingham again for a couple performances in September – catch me at Lyricists vs Vocalists by Subconcious Sounds Ltd on the 19th – and I’ll be performing a new set at Beats&Bars on Oct 4th in Wolverhampton. Keep locked for more performance announcements!

Okay thanks for the interview and best of luck with the release.

Thanks very much!
