VerbalSwardz-PopCulturez

In the week of it’s release, British online multi genre music publication PopCulturez are the latest to review the new “Verbal sWARdz” EP by north London Emcee & producer Iron Braydz

The newest member of Triple Darkness has produced a mightily strong 10 track taster of things to come later in the year, with his own highly evolved wordplay & lyricism complimented by the contributions from Prince Po, Sean Price, Kyza, Skriblah, Phat Kat and several of his fellow TD members. Kiss FM’s DJ Shortee Blitz brings some quality turntablism on board in the track Dobermans

The review includes the summary “this release immediately has the sound of a Wu-Tang Clan affiliate project, and not just because of the samples used in the ‘Intro.’ Where many of today’s MCs are shifting their styles to suit commercial crowds, with dubstep, grime, or even dance-floor orientated club tracks providing the backing, Iron Braydz keeps things gully with a solid rap style that will please purists.

Read it in full HERE

Verbal sWARdz is available to the public now at http://braydz.bandcamp.com

Also check out the new video “Rambo” featuring Kyza and Skriblah, released earlier this week and shot in east London by Global Faction

Butta Da Prince first set the Chicago streets buzzin with the release of his 2009 Mixtape “Millionaire Minded : The Album Before the Album” produced by DJ Holiday. He worked with Holiday again on 2011’s “Butta” before releasing 2012’s “The King and Da Prince”, this time hosted by DJ Hustlenomics

Since then, Butta has teamed up with Seven 13 Music. They’ve just revisited the joint “Dolla Bills” from last year’s release to give it the remix treatment, and this time Slaughterhouse’s Crooked I also brings some additional lyrical heat to the table on this 808 bass heavy production

Now working on new material for 2014, the track is available on iTunes HERE

Detroit’s Kid Vishis has just released the first single from his debut album which is due for release in March 2014 on Seven 13 Music.

The younger brother of Royce da 5 9 is no novice having started out in the city’s open mic circuit over 10 years ago, and first dropped some verses on the M.I.C. Vol 1 mixtape in 2003. Over the past 10 years he has toured the States, Canada and Europe with D12, Slaughterhouse and performed at shows with Slum Village, Rakim, Ghostface, Talib Kweli and Slick Rick.

Honing his craft live to international audiences and releasing multiple mixtapes including the “Sick ‘Em” series, as well as appearing on Royce’s albums “Street Hop” & “Success is Certain”, Kid Vishis has become one of the most respected lyricists of the next generation, and the album one of the most eagerly anticipated for many years. Production is courtesy of names such as Mr Porter & Freddie Foxxx, with the first single “Heaven” showcasing Vishis’ wordplay over beats by Nemesis

With UK and European tour plans already in the works for Spring 2014, Kid Vishis is going to be one to watch next year
