Over 3 days, 14th, 15th & 16th September, we arranged 5 video shoots with UK artists linked to future releases from Stateside artists Copywrite & Double AB.

On the first day, we were with Mystro, Genesis Elijah and Iron Braydz in Ladbroke Grove to film 3 of these. Mystro appears on Copywrite’s track Pick Up Stix, also featuring Sean Price, Iron Braydz appears on a track from Double AB “London’s Calling”, and all 3 appear on a new posse cut with Copywrite. Copywrite’s album “God Save The King” is due for release in the first quarter of 2012.

A number of media also dropped by to check out what was happening, including Soulculture, The Grime Report, BSomebody TV, Niji Magazine, Code Emphasis, Lime, and The Hip Hop Chronicle. Mystro, Gen & Braydz gave an impromptu “Big Man Ting” interview for The Hip Hop Chronicle (see below)

On the final day we were over at Hammersmith to meet up with Context MC who had already appeared on a remix for Copywrite’s labelmate Vast Aire, on the track “Cannon on Samus”. The sequence was shot for a track “Ghost in the Machine” down at the Thames. Special mention to the woman who told us she could “arrange” for a variety of birds to appear in the video & offered a feather as proof. You have a sponsorship deal with Thunderbird in the making there sweetheart…..!

Ohio’s Copywrite drops this banger “PYT” with the UK’s Loudmouth Melvin and Skillit as a pre-cursor to his new album “God Save The King”, due out late autumn on Man Bites Dog Records. The track produced by Kount Fif also features Jay Notes.

He’s earned the reputation in the States as a battle hardened MC with punchlines for days, and spent the past year putting together the new solo album as well as the new Mhz album “Megacy” due out 2012.

“God Save The King” includes features from Mystro, Genesis Elijah, Iron Braydz, Melanin 9, Akala, Bigz Flygerian, SAS, Don Strapzy, Context & Don Jaga, standing shoulder to shoulder with Sean Price, Royce da 5 9, Crooked I, Inspectah Deck, Roc Marciano, and more.
