Big Ribzy – Blunts & Insecurities (Produced by Lost Alliance) Album Reviewed @BigRibzy @LostAlliance @ParkStreetPR

Big Ribzy - Blunts & Insecurities - front500

I really think that out of all the UK rappers I have heard this year, Big Ribzy is the one who has one of those effortless flows, clever punchlines and most importantly, he knows how to make great songs and great albums. I mean he is only two projects deep and already he has been signed to a label across the pond, something most UK rappers can only dream of! Incredibly consistent catalogue is something rappers need, and Big Ribzy is a rapper who seems to be able to do that!

‘Blunts & Insecurities’, produced by Lost Alliance is Ribzy’s second release this year and one of my favourite releases in 2014. A lot of the production and content revolves around a funk, jazz and soulful vibe which I love with cuts like ‘Nobody But You’, ‘Petrified’ and ‘Pray For Me’ all impressing. Sonically, the lead-single, ‘First Track’ also fits in within the Boom Bap theme, and the production really helps this audio journey.

As with all Big Ribzy projects, the album is not too focussed on the same concept time after time, and this album features a lot of premier emceeing. His display some of the best rapping you’ll hear all year is delivered with passion and sincerity which makes him an artist with uniqueness. What separates Big Ribzy from your typical underground emcee is his ability to make songs that may not have much of a concept still entertaining and engaging.

It’s going to be a pretty exciting few months for UK Hip-Hop this winter and I think Big Ribzy is going to a name you are going to hear a lot more from. This album is an underground classic that deserves your attention.

SayKriDD Daly – All Day (Album Review) @SayKriDD_Daly @ParkStreetPR

ALL DAY COVER 500

Here’s an artist whose new album is well worth checking out, not only is a good rapper but through his music he seems like a genuinely likeable guy. Here is most definitely a star in the making as he flows like melting butter over booming bass detonations and tweaking electronics. Jittery digital fuzz and SayKriDD Daly’s delivery always seem to be complimented by an anthemic chorus-line making this long player full of musical attitude. To be clear not all tracks hit the spot, but the good outweighs the bad here, and when he turns it up, he hits the spot, which is what makes his music so appealing. Refreshingly different in an era where everyone is following each other, it’s nice to hear something unique.

SayKriDD Daly – All Day (Track-list):

01 – Intro All Day VM (SCOdoubleT Skit)
02 – Rap Juggernaut
03 – Know My Name (Cuts By Winchester)
04 – Big Bad Wolf
05 – Running Feat. Prince EA & Holly Wilson
06 – Rap To You Feat. The Hellionz
07 – Believe
08 – Go Nuts!! (Cuts By Winchester)
09 – The Interlude
10 – Can You Hear Me Feat. Jimmie Black
11 – Venting
12 – White Boy Wasted
13 – Shine With Me Feat. Holly Wilson
14 – Never End
15 – My Life Feat. Holly Wilson
16 – Where The F Can I Get Your Music Ya B**tard?! VM (SKIT)

Fdot1 – I’m A Rebel (Album Review) @Fdot1tv @ParkStreetPR

Fdot1 - I'm A Rebel

Fdot1 is the New Yorker living in the UK who has been making serious moves in the underground for some time. Now he drops his brand new album featuring a full line-up of great acts including Tippa Irie, Corporal Ak, Trezay, Man Parrish, Judah Maccabee, Bongah Chops, Jeuce The Slayer, Alex Bruce, Dre Dollars, Elizé & Genesis Elijah.

What I like about Fdot1 is he how diverse he is, maybe the fact he has a perspective of street life in the US and UK makes him more globally expected, or maybe it’s just his open-minded approach to making tracks. The other thing is he is an amazing producer too; the beats on this album are super dope and hit the spot.

‘I’m A Rebel’ is an album that Hip-Hop fans should be up on. It’s an album that really pays testament to the scene and his collobo with the legend that is Man Parrish is reason enough alone to purchase this album. If you buy one album this week, make sure it’s this!

Fdot1 – I’m A Rebel (Track-list):

01. It Wuz Sweet/Floyd’s Intro
02. I’m A Rebel
03. Da Flo (In Case Ya Didn’t Know Remix)
04. In Yo Hood Ft. Tippa Irie, Corporal Ak & Trezay
05. Let Me Hear Ya (Hip-Hop Be Bop) Ft. Man Parrish
06. Get Live
07. InKredible Ft. Trezay, Judah Maccabee, Bongah Chops & Jeuce The Slayer

King K.O.N.G. & Teck-Zilla join forces on ‘KongZilla’ (Free Download) #Review

King Kong and Godzilla: two of the most famous, yet misunderstood, movie monsters of our time. While the two behemoths may have squared off against each other in the past, their combined efforts could have led them to defeat the government and rule the world. But what if their was a hybrid beast—one that had the animalistic nature of the Skull Island ape and the terrifying command of the Toho reptile? King K.O.N.G. and Teck-Zilla, two equally talented beasts on the mic and on the beats, respectively, have teamed up to destroy all those who stand in their path.

Their united talents have led to KongZilla, the 9-track onslaught that’ll decimate any wack rappers in their path. The EP brings together the best raps of the Long Island emcee, coupled with the Nigerian-born beatsmith. Sonically, the project serves up a series of fresh tracks that show the inner workings of the very monster they’ve become. With joints like the hard-hitting, “The Bringer” and the introspective, gloomy jam “Break of Day,” we get a full understanding of our antiheroes. So whether you’ve already been introduced to the duo, or have just tuned in, King K.O.N.G. and Teck-Zilla’s KongZilla is now available for free download.. you’ve been warned.
