UK Runnings Presents Trademark Blud – Tricks Of The Trade (Hosted by @TrickstaUK) #Mixtape @TrademarkBlud @UKRunnings @ParkStreetPR

This Midlands rhymer has been hard on his grind for the last few years, but after hearing this preview from his forthcoming mixtape with UK Runnings I can honestly say this is the best he’s ever sounded. Like a venomous reptile he spits poison on the microphone with clarity and presence. Lyrically I think will stand the test of time, with various styles of rap covered, Trademark has a unique way of bringing real life social issues to the forefront of people’s minds. ‘Tricks Of The Trade’ is educational and entertaining new skool UK Rap!

Blabz ‘One Side To Every Story’ (Noble Throne Media) #Review @Blabz1 @ParkStreetPR

blabz cover 500

Blabz, a young Derby MC, first gained prominence under the name of Blabba T. Now he drops his new release which features some quick-fire cadence and compellingly brutal tales of inner city depravity. Listening to the 26-year-old’s debut, it is clear that something special is bubbling here. His delivery on every song is thought out well, using tones of the style of the rhyme scheme to create some great music. Blabz doesn’t alter his lyrics to suit this musical palette, instead he sticks to his guns dropping science on various tracks. Too many UK rappers go in over emo pianos and sappy strings suggesting that they’re yet to grow out of their Eminem obsession, but that’s not the case here. This whole project has a smack-you-in-face vibe to it, which I adore. Blabz isnt kindly whispering ‘check me out’, instead he is looking to blow the doors off.
