Lady Lykez – What Are Those!

Lady Lykez takes to the streets of London, Oxford St with DJ Melody Kane for a fun-filled video for new track ‘What Are Those!’ It features a verse from a familiar face from Fire Camp, Face who proceeds to give the track a different edge to it. It’s full of humour and clever wordplay and is co-produced by Lykez herself and Elliot Bradley.

Sticky Blood ft. LDizz – Hop In The Place

Go-to producers Sticky Blood who hail from Sheffield drop a brand new track ‘Hop In The Place’ ft. another Steel City representative LDizz. The new generation Grime MC brings an anthemic chorus and melodic flows coupled with the Grime x Trap vibes and deep bass it unites for one heavy, summertime track.

Chase & Status ft. Novelist – NRG

We heard the audio of this track back in April, and now we get the visuals to boot of the high octane ‘NRG’ track. The electronic music duo are joined by South London Grime MC Novelist who powers through the track with confidence and fire. You’ll be able to catch this on Chase & Status  fourth studio forthcoming album. Until then watch the intense video below.

Midlands producer Massappeals is on a mission to bring out tracks with Midlands based MC’s. The first one to be released from this is ‘Wheel’ and features an exciting MC, Mez from Nottingham who adds his energetic flows and mean lyrics to the already hype, and soon to be club banger. Watch out from more of these tracks from Massappeals to come with artists such as Snowy.

MTV Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

It has been over a decade since the crew first launched in the early 2000’s and last Thursday saw them reunite for the So Solid Crew Reunion Tour. The tour sold out and this was no surprise as the crew were instrumental in the development of the UK music scene. In particular, ’21 Seconds’ went straight to No.1, proving that this type of ‘urban’ music could reach commercial success and is still a well-known song in pop culture…

Ms Dynamite joined the crew for track ‘Envy’ getting the audience hyped to see the female MC joining the crew. Chip also joined them on stage and you could tell he was excited to be on stage with the crew who inspired him. Skepta unfortunately was meant to be performing with Megaman on ‘We Begin Things’ but police would not allow him into the venue.

Godfather of grime Wiley leaked what is set to be his last album ‘The Ascent’ nearly two weeks before its release date. His decision to do it was due to iTunes not letting him change something on the album and communication problems with his management.  Let’s hope his album sales still rocket as he deserves it.

Known for his hot freestyles and well-respected tracks, and with a constantly growing street buzz, Nines has always supported and represented his NW home of Church Road to the fullest. Unfortunately he is now reportedly in prison at Wormwood Scrubs for reasons unknown and unconfirmed at present. He tweeted “If it’s peak for me @ court make sure you give my new mixtape 2 skinny black and dem n***rs make sure I hear dat on da yard.” Let’s hope he’s out soon and we hear it too.

One of UK raps respected Fekky joined Charlie Sloth for Fire In The Booth, proving why he has earned this status and it’s not going anywhere. He lays down hard, truthful bars lighting up the booth.

Pound Sterling dropped his ‘Last Man Standing’ mixtape which sees a solid 19 tracks and contains some strong features from Skepta, Fekky and Jaja Soze. The tape shows his elevation and progress as an artist keeping the real, authentic rap there.

G FrSH released another video to a track off his forthcoming ‘Legoman 2’ mixtape. This time we see Sincere and Fekky join him for ‘18k’ with all of them dropping some big heavy-duty bars.

South London’s Political Peak has been on his grind, releasing quite a few videos recently. We saw him refix Drake’s ‘Started From The Bottom’ over a week ago. A day later and wasting no time he dropped motivational track ‘Get Money, F**k B***hes’ which saw another STR88CASH representative Kerz join him.

Meanwhile, Sho Shallow and Ard Adz have released the G.H.E.T.T.O EP – you can get the 13-track offering on iTunes now.
