It’s been, yet again, our pleasure to work with more quality lyricists and beatmakers from the USA and UK this year.

For over a decade we have promoted albums and EP’s to worldwide media, some by established names, others from new emerging artists, but all who have the common denominator of being highly skilled at their craft. More details are HERE

We focus on MC’s and producers who draw from the authentic values of hip hop while adapting them for a modern era, securing press coverage and airplay for them throughout the specialist marketplaces in USA, Canada, UK, Europe and Australia. 2016 has been no different as demonstrated by the following releases :

HORSESHOE GANG – ALBUM “ANTI-TRAP MUSIC” released April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Ent

Available to buy on iTunes HERE

The Long Beach crew and younger brothers of Crooked I returned with their fourth official studio album although they have a multitude of EP and mixtape releases under their belt over the past decade. Most notable was their “Monthly Mixtape” series which saw them drop a tape every month for a full year between 2013 and 2014.

Last year they hit the headlines due to their rap battle with Hopsin’s now defunct “Funk Volume” and they summed up the ethos behind the new album title by stating “If you’re tired of hearing your kids singing songs around the house that’s talking about pushing crack, then get our new album !

Including the tracks “Intro” featuring Crooked I and “Shoe-icide Squad” which addresses the issues reltaing to the Black Lives Matter movement, check the full album stream on Soundcloud

Typical of their industrious nature, they then released a further album “4 Brothers” as an acknowledgement of the support received from their extensive international fanbase.

CONSTANT DEVIANTS – ALBUM “OMERTA” released June 28th through Six2Six Records

Available to buy on Bandcamp HERE

Legendary eastcoast duo MC M.I. and DJ Cutt followed up 2015’s “Avant Garde” with “Omerta”, a concept album where the pair drew on their respective Italian and Russian heritages to adopt the roles of Luciano and Lansky.

The imagery was used purely metaphorically to address a variety of subject matters, consistent with M.I.’s current level of creativity as he embarks upon a movie making and acting career which saw his new film “Six2Six” featuring Treach, Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Busy Bee premiered at Ralph McDaniels’ Hip Hop Film Festival in NYC this year.

Returning to their harder, edgier sound, “Omerta” was considered by many to be their strongest album to date. Including the singles “So Underrated” and “DeLorean”, this is a classic “no fillers” release and fans of superior rhymes, beats and turntablism will have this stream on repeat.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – EP “VETERAN” released November 18th through Seven 13 Music & Ent

Available to buy on iTunes HERE

Originally rivals in NY State’s rap battle scene in the 90’s, Tone Chop & Frost Gamble became partners in rhyme and tagging.

Due to Frost’s subsequent relocation to Winnipeg, Canada to pursue a career in production which has seen him work with Sadat-X, J-Ro and Rakim’s son Tahmell, Chop continued as a member of the group Binghamton’s Most Wanted while releasing a string of solo mixtapes in the dual capacity of rapper and producer. His “This is NY” includes the track “Momma” by Tom Gist produced by Chop.

Having contributed to Seven 13’s “God Bless Dope Rappers” compilation earlier this deal, Frost inked a deal with the label and the pair re-united for their first official EP release. “Veteran” is a warm up to an album planned for 2017, and includes the single “Leave It Alone”, a tribute to Sean Price featuring Ruste Juxx and Nobi.

Bars, beats and turntablism for days, this is for the hip hop connoisseurs.

The “Veteran” EP released on November 18th was the first official collaborative project by NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble.

This despite the fact the pair were originally rivals in Binghamton’s rap battle scene during the 90’s who would then go on to be partners in rhyme, tagging and remained hip hop allies over the years.

bckbrdr

Though continuing to collaborate on occasional tracks, the pair pursued solo careers especially in the light of Frost’s relocation and subsequent re-focus on production. This led them to work individually with artists such as Tom Gist, J-Ro, Sadat-X, Jinx da Juvy and Rakim’s son Tahmell, however it was Frost’s contribution to Seven 13’s “God Bless Dope Rappers” compilation earlier this year which was the catalyst for the new EP

Also released through Seven 13 Music & Ent, “Veteran” is a warm up to a new album planned for 2017, and includes the single “Leave It Alone” featuring Ruste Juxx, a tribute to Sean Price.
