Trademark Blud is a name I’ve seen circulating ever since his ‘Tricks Of The Trade’ mixtape with UK Runnings. Now signed to Platformz, a Chicago based label, this UK rapper goes in for his first release. This eight track EP is obviously an attempt to introduce an underground hero to a mass audience, and this latest solo effort has no guest appearances. It’s a lot more than a rapper just spitting bars and there are conceptually superb concepts that have the perfect beat from USA producer Rediculus who does every beat on this project. It’s very exciting to see emcees outside of London town making these moves because the outcome has been outstanding superb Hip-Hop realness for real heads. Make sure you cop this album from the links below.

Thought Foundry is the newest offering from Platformz Records, the label founded by producer and tech CEO Rediculus. The label is associated with his mobile music app Platformz, which allows users to stream music from multiple streaming sites in one app.
The project titled “Ready For This” is four strong songs covering what lyricist Konflik sees as “things that motivate me to do better”. Questioning everything from the influence of religion on his life and the lives of those around him to ways to enjoy partying, this EP takes us on a musical journey of how Konflik and Rediculus see the world at large and the ways they cope with its effects on them.
From the opening drum licks of “Good Times” to the deep brooding guitars and organs on “Silver”, Rediculus provides the perfect backdrop for Konflik to lace his smooth flow over and ‘Flik doesn’t disappoint as he matches it with thought provoking lyrics and memorable hooks.

Lil Fame and Billy Danze of M.O.P. sat down for an exclusive interview with VladTV, after the duo performed at The California Brew Haus in Rochester, NY. Fame spoke with VladTV correspondent Michelle Visa about his DJing skills. He revealed that he’s always found DJing to be something that he can just have fun with, as opposed to rapping, which can sometimes seem like work.
The legendary rap duo also spoke about new projects, including an album called Icons, which Billy said wouldn’t be a proper album unless Lil Fame produced some tracks. When asked about features, both Billy and Fame said they aren’t into chasing down other artists, but added that they’re into organically collaborating with others who are already in the studio with them.
Check out more of what M.O.P. had to say above.

“I decided I was done with allowing the industry to construct my goals and potentially define who I am. I wanted to get back in touch with every aspect of what I want and who I actually am, whilst respecting the need to express through my art. I thought back to the beginning; what were my aims? what were my aspirations? where did my values lie? when did the understanding of respect, love, pride and dignity become over shadowed with concepts of money, views, fame, attention and status?
I decided it was time to X out the bullshit! It’s like possessing an identity given to me by a slave master, with that said I was able to revert back to the essence and find my true identity within music and at that point I realised…this is rebel music ~ It’s time to Rebel!” PROJECT X
