MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

This week is all about the Lord Of The Mics release and all last week we saw it being talked about everywhere on the social networks and blogs and sites supporting the movement started by Ratty and Jammer…

The press launch party also took place last week, which saw press being invited down to watch the clashes before the release and everyone talking about their opinions of who won. Some of the opinions were quite definite, others were hard to tell. Now its out, I’m sure a lot of you have watched it, what do you think?

The Allstars track was also unleashed on radio and on Soundcloud for us to hear and featured Jammer, Maxsta, Big Shizz, Blizzard, Lil Nasty, Realz, D2, Lil Choppa and Zeo. Check it out now!

Goldie 1’s name has been popping up this year quite a lot on the rap circuit and I definitely like his style, he’s brought something different to the table. A very trappy style which features two of my favourites who are just getting bigger and better and have had an incredible year Sho Shallow and Ard Adz and also a strong verse from Ayo Beatz.

Two South London rappers join forces for this new club banger which sees Ghost from Squeeze 4 Ps collaborate with SN1’s Giggs. The two deliver some hard bars over a dark instrumental. Look out for more to come from Ghost next year.

One of Grime’s hardest duo’s the Newham Generals last week dropped another video this one entitled ‘Passion.’ The track was premiered on Mistajam’s show on 1Xtra recently with the video being released soon after last week and shows the General’s passion for Grime still.

Alwayz Recording artist Yellows brought out his ‘Yellows Pages 2’ EP and we should be expecting more visuals from it very very soon. The mixtape sees collaborations from Sneakbo, Paigey Cakey, Fuze BW and more. Make sure you go and get that now.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Last Sunday saw the release of Mic Righteous’ ‘Open Mic’ EP and on Tuesday (12) he held a launch party in Camden with special guests. Support acts consisted of one of London’s finest female DJ’s – SB.TV’s Melody Kane, rapper MyNature, lyricist RoxXxan, grime’s Big Narstie and ‘the people’s prince’ Charlie Sloth

Mic performed all of the tracks from his EP and the recent Radio 1 Live Lounge cover of ‘The Power Of Love’ with singer Lucia. Vocalist Ella Chi also joined him for my personal favourite track off the EP, ‘King Of Hearts’. Everyone was excited to see English Frank join Mic on stage along with wordsmith Akala. It really was a special night and it was great to see Mic captivate and wow every single member of the crowd.

A mini biography documentary on Giggs was released by Rap Up UK recently, talking us through his come up, achievements and why he is important to UK rap music. It features artists like Ard Adz, Sho ShallowPepstarPropaneMangaD Dark and Squingy, who all gave their positive and respected views on him, showing how significant Giggs is to the scene.

Wretch 32’s biography video came out last night via the same platform, looking at his career from his huge underground success and being part of The Movement along with DevlinGhettsScorcher to his most recent mainstream success.

His ‘Crown Me’ mixtape dropped in December 2012 and became a much talked about and listened to mixtape; so it was only right for Ratlin to drop the video to one of the bangers off their entitled ‘Roley’.

Sneakbo released another video from his forthcoming ‘Certified’ EP, getting people geared up for the release. ‘They Don’t Know Me’ has a catchy beat and hook and is definitely one I can expect to hear in clubs. Sneakbo’s bars and flow sounds effortless too.

Young Spray hit up Fire In Booth on BBC Radio 1 with Charlie Sloth, starting off by spitting hardcore bars over the instrumental ‘Clique’ then ‘Renegade’ and ‘Home Town’. His lyrics switched to different subjects but irrespective are fueled by his passion and emotions.

A lot of heat was surrounding Bayoz Muzik last week as his ‘Death Of A Beatmaker’ EP was released. It has seven strong tracks and features some of the UK’s best emcee’s including Giggs, JMEBlade BrownGunna DeeJ SpadesYoungs Teflon and more. The tape has helped propel him more into the limelight and spark new interest and fans.

This is my favourite track of the week… ‘Passion’ comes from South London’s DVS. The piano led instrumental is beautiful and fits the various topics of the track, with the lyrics showing DVS’s depth and thoughts.
