UK Hip Hop
The homie Leaf Dog is on the verge of dropping his highly anticipated second solo album and in the lead up to the the full release has let off what is quite possibly the biggest posse cut ever put together in the history of UK Hip Hop. I am obviously hype to have dropped some scratches on this slice of UKHH gold and highly recommended you cop the limited vinyl single complete with full mammoth acapella and pre order the full albs.

Supreme flow assassin Ocean Wisdom has been racking up the hits since his debut Chaos 93 dropped. "Spittin' The Racket" which features cuts from myself is the latest joint from the project to clock over a million matrix views. Shouts to Dike on the beat and all mouse clickers world wide.
Cop the 12" vinyl single version which comes complete with instrumental and intergalactic smash nugget "Walking" on the flip right here
A few years back I put together an extended cuts outro for one of Dike's more delicate love ballads entitled "Waste Of Beer". The tune was uploaded to HF TV but never actually released into the wild. Luckily for all you vinyl heads this situation has now been rectified with a super limited run of white label 12"s being let loose → here ← for the first and only time. I highly recommend you cop one before they all sell out and are only found lurking on discogs for ¥99999

Last year I was gassin about my hype levels regarding a return to Greece to smack a live show, see I totally was.
Well, as it turned out the hype was 100% certified real and the whole trip was bananas from top to tail. To commemorate what went down, the good people at Noiz Productions have put together a recap vid of the show so it can live on forever in permanent cyber marker:

The certified G, the mic veteran, the man who is only willing to accept partial comparisons to 80’s global pop mega stars and who flat out refuses to play, Verb T, has thrown his hat into the label ring with his brand new In The Balance Records imprint.
First signing to the squad is London based rapper Moreone who christens the label with “Turn Back”, a track lifted from his forthcoming EP of the same name. In The Balance Record's maiden outing is produced by Verbs himself and features some cuts from my very own cross fader battering hands.
You can check out the track complete with official video by Above Ground Media ryyyightt hurrr ↓↓

All year Super Mega Bad have been bringing you nothing short of the most rumbustious vibe filled ultra parties ever to touch UK Hip Hop and fuck it's been fun. Like, actual big fun. You know, a party, a well fucking live one. Fun. This is not your average jam. If you have ever been to a Super Mega party then you know the deal.
We are talking unbelievably live rap shows, beach balls, open mic cyphers, prize giveaways, open 4 deck multi turntable mayhem, inflatable giraffes, party bags, iPod soundclahses and a shed tonne of jokes.
So far we have brought heads like Rodney P, Skitz, Leaf Dog, BVA, Jam Baxter, Stig Of The Dump, Edward Scissortongue, Dabbla, Sumgii, DJ Frost, Skufff, Inja, Dr Styntax and Pete Cannon all through to smash our stage into obliteration. It's been heavy.
Visuals from a couple past events:
To celebrate the anniversary we have put together a stupid fly line up guaranteed to do the business, all taking place on Friday 21st August @ The Portland Arms, Cambridge.
As always Dirty Dike will be hosting his infamous open mic cypher and I will be taking care of our open 4 deck turntable mega jam.
