Hip hop crew Belles in Monica have today released their new EP “Natsukashii”, the second in their ‘Lazarus’ series and follow up to April’s “Y’All in Meltdown”.

Out on New Dawn Records who relaunched this year after a 15 year hiatus, journeys are taken to the dark underbelly of inner city drug squalor in “Smoke Filled Rooms”, industry machinations are exposed in “That All U Got?” while the booming production of “Skitzophentic” provides the backdrop for a tirade against generic conformity.

“Venom” attacks multimedia’s clandestine misinformation schemes while the mood is switched in “Hip Hop”, a funked up, sample laden ode to the culture. A soundtrack incorporating tight eclectic beats, turntablism and filmic themes concludes as the final credits roll with “Resistance is Futile”, a bonfire of the vanities in a metaphorical dystopia.

NY State rapper Tone Chop & producer Frost Gamble released their album “Respect Is Earned Not Given” on September 29th through Miami label 22 Entertainment.

Featuring Kool G Rap, Planet Asia, rap battler DNA, Canadian upcomer Whito Rhino and Tragedy Khadafi, it’s rammed full of punchline bars, street stories, rugged rhymes and superior beats, with a welcome helping of turntablism thrown into the mix for good measure.

There’s been extensive worldwide media coverage of the release, and the latest review comes courtesy of Dynamic JAB writing for OK Tho Magazine. Read his appraisal HERE

The pair are now returning from a short stay in New York City where they were meeting with press and appeared as guests on DJ Eclipse’s “Rap Is Outta Control Show” and Guerrilla Grooves Radio in The Bronx.

Frost also releases his new collaborative EP with Tragedy Khadafi “Rare Fabric” this Friday, October 20th, and is busy on remix and new music projects with Horseshoe Gang and Royce da 5’9″ while putting the finishing touches to his solo album “I Missed My Bus”.

New Jersey hiphop group 050 Boyz released their debut album “Everything 050” yesterday. It is available to buy now on iTunes HERE

The three Emcees Riq da Kid, Tru Trilla and Prince AK all have links with Brick City Newark, Illtown, East Orange, and take their name from NJ’s area code. Individually they were also involved with the Garden State Greats movement around 10 years ago, a concept devised by Treach of Naughty by Nature and Fam of Rottin Razkals to unite the local hip hop scene.


Involvement with GSG played a part in the formation of the group in 2011, and certainly the focus in representing the area remains true. The album itself is heavily represented by featured local artists including Treach, DoItAll, Lakim Shabazz, Fam, Tha Advocate, B Wells, Ib the Druid and many more. It is entirely produced by Clinton Place, a long time associate of Prince AK from their days of performing together with Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit artist Supreme C.

Their album has just been reviewed by US journalist Patrick Griffin for his site Patrick’s Music Blog. READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE


The group have just signed a new management deal with Inkwell Entertainment in NYC who also represent artists such as Treach and Syleena Johnson, and you will be able to hear them live on DJ Eclipse’s Halftime Show on WNYU next Wednesday 12th August from 10.30pm EST when they appear as his special guests. They will also be guests on J Hart’s Big Bang Show on the UK’s Break London station two nights later, Friday 14th August.
