On some old sprayin’ shots like a drumroll….the second single off Zilla Rocca & The Shadowboxers’ second LP “No Vacation For Murder” flexes the index finger until it’s sore. Co-piloted by Geechi Suede of Camp Lo, “Chi-Town Drumroll” is the shimmering heist anthem for masked men peeling off with a devil may care attitude. Zilla and Geechi write lightning over a languid lavendar guitar flip from producer Blurry Drones. Days are getting long and the party’s going wild. “Chi-Town Drumroll” y’all — get down. Preorder the new Zilla Rocca & The Shadowboxers LP “No Vacation for Murder” dropping digitally Tues April 1, 2014 and physically with CD + Poster on Tues April 8, 2014 at threedollarpistol.com/album/no-vacat…n-for-murder-2.

Born in Washington D.C., Mic Lungz is a Hip-Hop artist who learned early about pain, struggle and sacrifice. Growing up during the Golden Age of Hip-Hop, music had a big influence on his life. During his late teens he along with 4 of his childhood friends formed a rap group called Rugged Soulz. Performing at neighborhood parties/open mics, was where he realized there was nothing else he wanted to do with his life but be an MC.
The group eventually diminished to only two members, and he learned/mastered the art of song structure and recording. Always staying on his grind, Mic Lungz returns with his latest offering, ‘Bully Beatdown.’ ‘Bully Beatdown’ plays host to hard hitting aggressive drum kicks and heavy MMA references sets the tone for this UFC themed album. Produced entirely by D.C. mainstay JUDAH, the duo are reviving that one MC, one producer combination. The album also supports features from Tone Trump, Tabi Bonney, K-Beta and Visto to round out the diversity from track to track.

Here’s a little gem that has been sent to us that is well worth checking out from UK artist Intuitive. The track is a message to his father and its done in a real emotional way. A solid delivery, honesty and great wordplay from such a young artist. We predict big things in 2014 for Intuitive. The video for the song is below so make you click like, comment and subscribe!

Dope new release from Birmingham artists Jimmie Black & Danny B. Loving this track, very positive and some great lyrics. Get to know!
Most mainstream UK Rap is on dubstep or dance beats and then most underground UK Rap is either trap as hell and chats about drugs, money, girls, street life and guns. As well as that you have UK Hip-Hop which can be boring as hell too with every other record sounding 20 years old or just talking about the government and the illuminati every 5 seconds. This is none of that, but instead something that takes influences from all of that, filters out the rubbish and is then re-delivered with passion and well chose beats by an emcee who speaks truth. As far as mixtapes go for the UK this really is on a next level.

Despite the current trend of R’n’B artists turning to straight up dance infused tracks, or girls twerking and sticking their tongue out being classed as urban, there is actually some good music out there. These days it’s about the independent artists, they seem to cater more for the music lover, and that’s what Ensite do. A song with a string message and a video to compliment it this is a track I’ve been playing all week. The groove of the beat is great, got me instantly nodding my head and I also loved how the track was arranged, works really well. With lush vocal tones and quality production I really can’t to hear their debut album.

As consistent as ever LATE drops this new single with producer Juttla, a beatmaker and producer/deejay/remixer who has worked with numerous people from Foreign Beggars to dance music legends like Marshall Jefferson, as well as being an artist in his own right and running the infamous Eastern Pressure Recordings.
LATE on the other hand shouldn’t really need an introduction but for those that don’t know he has featured on the same tracks as rappers such as UK legends like Skinnyman and Scorzayzee, as well as US legends such as Willie D, Slim Thug and K-Rino to name a handful. He really is a true underground legend in the global rap scene.
Together they go in with a new track and single that comes complete with a video from Triple Fear Films. I love the way the video keeps it true to the artform and even includes some great graffiti shots. The video has a stush look and is a visual that compliments the track.
The tune itself bangs from the off, and wasn’t really what I was expecting from LATE. It’s a 90bom-ish groove that works well with a sick sample and solid drums, something that fans of Boom Bap shouldn’t sleep on. Hip-Hop fans go and download this now; you know you need it on your iPod or Phone!
While most people shrugged off Kendrick Lamar’s heard around the world “Control” verse as nothing but some boisterous claims of being the king of New York, others took the message a bit more personally. Such is the case with Innocent? and his response to the aforementioned rhymes supplied by the Good Kid M.A.A.D. City emcee. Where Innocent?, the boom-bap dedicated rhyme sayer’s comeback excels in is the well executed video shot by Donald Robinson Cole, which showcase some breath taking scenes of the Big Apple. The clever bars that reveal the Brooklyn rapper has no time for individuals that hate on NY also justifies his reasoning for calling out any and all accusations. It is with this in mind that Innocent? is truly guilty of repping NY to the fullest by and means necessary.
