MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Cashtastic is one of the hardest working rappers in the UK, never releasing track upon track for the sake of it – he seems to have a plan. He recorded his first song at the age of 10 and now is only in his early 20’s. I have a feeling the ‘Alarm Clock’ EP (released Feb 9) is just going to warm us up for the release of his debut album. ‘Red Handed’ is the first release to be heard from the EP and really shows off Cash’s skills as a lyricist and artist.

Yungen turned 22 on February 1 and to celebrate he released a video for his fans, reversing roles and giving them a present! ’22 (Cake)’ produced by ADP is a fun track which sees Yungen partying with his boys in a flat and just enjoying life. I hope he got what he wished for on his birthday. ‘All I want for my birthday is some cake, cake, cake…’

South-East London rapper Benjamin A.D is one that I was surprised at myself for not paying enough attention to, as he definitely deserves it. ‘No More Drama’ is the opening track off his ‘Acknowledgments’ EP, which hears him talk about wanting a stress free life. The C-Major produced track is different; not a straight hip-hop beat, but flits into dubstep.

Another South London rapper is also back with his first track of the year. Joe Grind released a lyric video for song ‘Speaking English’ – this track will be on his forthcoming EP ‘Episode 3: Better Late Than Never’.

One of my favourite tracks off the ‘Class 90’ album is ‘Tell Em’ which sees Big Shizz and Kay Wills from the Rascals being joined by one of North London’s finest, Squeeks, along with vocals from Goldie 1 and Big Swingz. This collaboration has really worked so well together and for me will remain a classic – check out the video HERE.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

On Tuesday I went down to Music Is My Drug, a live music showcase which takes place weekly in east London. Blizzard and Lady Lykez were two rappers performing on the night; they received the biggest reception from the audience, who seemed to really take to them. Lykez came on before Blizzard who was last – they had brilliant stage presence and got people moving…

Dappy and his on-off girlfriend have been at it again on twitter; Dappy is currently on tour across the country and his partner seems to think he’s been having too much fun with his groupies.

“Why don’t you just f**k off with your groupies and seriously leave me alone. Ur sad as F**k…” she tweeted. She also threatened to ‘Do a Rob Kardashian’, then hacked his Twitter with some very crude and vulgar tweets.

S.A.S aka Mega and Mayhem dropped their new mixtape ‘Coming To America II’ last week along with the visuals to the track ‘Drug Flow’. Hosted By Big Mike, DJ Snips & DJ Allure, it was only right that they had a follow up to ‘Coming To America’ which really got them heard during their Dipset days.

As Ratlin geared up for the release of his mixtape ‘Crown Me’, putting out a video on Friday for the track ‘Crunch Time’ featuring his brother Shak Corelone. ‘Crown Me’ is out today and you can download it from GRM Daily.

Haze was joined by Sincere and Ghetts as he drops the visuals to ‘Where I’m From’ which is taken from his recently released mixtape ‘Loyalty, Honour, Respect’ and sees him take us on a tour of London.

SN1’s Giggs and Waka Flocka Flame took to the studio again whilst Waka was over in London for their second collaboration ‘Lemme Get Dat’. SB.TV popped down and got some visuals for the Bayoz Music produced track.

Joe Grind had something interesting for us this week as last night he released the inventive visual to ‘I’m The S**t!!!’ showing clips of his fans who filmed themselves for the video.

Yungen picks up a bottle and drowns his sorrows in ‘Off The Record’, produced by Steel Banglez. This is interesting material, as he raps about the bad times he’s been through for the first three minutes before singer Ari takes over for the remaining two minutes.

MTV Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

I headed down to venue Under The Bridge in Fulham last Thursday to watch Tinchy Stryder’s one man show. Considering we haven’t heard that much from Tinchy recently, his supporters came out in full force to watch him, letting him know they weren’t going anywhere whist they wait for his new album ‘Full Tank’ to be released soon…

I hit Scala on Saturday night for Harry Shotta’s birthday bash. It was a night to remember as artists from Skibadee to Flirta D took to the stage and got the crowd hyped up. If you didn’t go, you missed out!

Awards season has fallen upon us once again and this year we saw the MOBO’s being held in Liverpool on Saturday. Sadly I didn’t make it down, but Plan B deservedly won Best Hip Hop/Grime Act as well as Best Male.

The Urban Music Awards nominees have also been released, with Sneakbo up against Dot RottenSmiler and Maxsta in the Best Newcomer category. Best Male Artist sees Sneakbo, Smiler and Maxsta nominated again, this time up against Wiley and Devlin amongst others.

Best Hip-Hop nominees went to Professor Green, Plan B, Maxsta, Dizzee RascalSway and Lady Leshurr – this category has definitely got some tough competition. Klashnekoff’s ‘FTLT’ album is up against Plan B’s ‘Ill Manor’s and Krept & Konan are nominated alongside Clement Marfo + The Frontline and Rizzle Kicks for Best Group.

Mic Righteous brought us the 13th segment of GRM Daily’s new Daily Duppy’s series last Monday, spitting some honest bars. A few days later he then told us the ‘Thoughts Of A Dying Man’ in his brand new hard-hitting track produced by Red Skull Beats; he also released the accompanying video where we see him getting stabbed.

Speaking of deep videos, Youngs Teflon told the story of ‘Mellisa’ through a new video, showing a harsh love story which ends in the worst way possible.

Benny Banks premiered his new track ‘Trouble’ last week which samples late singer Amy Winehouse. The video was also released and sees Banks and his team in Amsterdam.

East London producer Steel Banglez met with longtime collaborator Cashtastic for his brand new track ‘Wafey’ which also features rapper Margs. The video dropped last night so make sure you check out this banger.

Charlie Sloth made Joe Grind and Steelo’s new track ‘Obstacles’ No.2 on the hood heat chart of his hip-hop show. This will be on the pair’s forthcoming collaborative album ‘Steel Grinding’, so make sure you look out for that when it drops.

Until next time!
