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.

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.
