Following the phenomenal international response to his debut album “Magna Carta” which released on 3rd December, Melanin 9 has just launched the final video from this project “Heartless Island” featuring his long time sparring partners Triple Darkness with production courtesy of Jehst

Just as with previous joints Organized Democracy and DJ Magazine’s Hip Hop Single of the Month “White Russian” ft Roc Marciano, this is another banger with all artists on top of their lyrical game over a slammin beat.

Melanin 9 has just released the vinyl version of Magna Carta, and has been busy in the studio recording new projects including a new track with Planet Asia. He has several live appearances coming up including a performance at London’s iLuvLive at the end of May, and featuring on the main stage at the UK’s Boom Bap Festival in September.

Definitely one to keep your eyes on over the next 12 months

East coast veteran duo MI and producer DJ Cutt, aka Constant Deviants, have been turning out hip hop bangers since the mid 90’s.

While MI signed with Arista in 2000, Cutt worked with N.O.R.E. and Roc-A-Fella Records, and the worlds collided again when MI featured with Rick Ross on N.O.R.E.’s “Yup” in 2006.

The duo set up a new label, Six 2 Six Records, and the imprint grew a global reputation for releases with the classic hip hop sound on the classic vinyl format. Fast forward to today, and they have just released their new album “Diamonds” from which this new video “Its OK” is taken

The duo have already begun recording the follow up album, while MI is soon to release a new EP as part of Trilateral Commission, a collaboration with producers from the United States and Europe.

You can get more information on all of Six 2 Six Records’ releases at six2sixrecords.bandcamp.com and reach them on twitter @Six2SixShift

New exclusive here for the djs – official brand new radio edit of Crooked I’s single “Villain” originally released on his Million Dollar Story EP.

The Circle of Bosses affiliate, which includes Horseshoe G.A.N.G. and of course Shady’s Slaughterhouse took the hook from Gracie Productions’ singer / songwriter Sally Anthony from the track of the same name which first appeared on her album Goodbye in 2007. The album peaked at #9 in Billboard’s Heatseekers’ Chart & the video of the original was released in December 2012.

She has also previously worked with Crook on the track It’s Been So Long, and with Slaughterhouse’s Joe Budden on Machine Gun.

Check the track on Soundcloud

A founding member of The Truth MoveMENT and trans-Atlantic urban rock group The Score, Skripture has produced for Bashy, IAM1 and Saukrates, and developed his own solo career as an emcee and musician in recent times with the launch of his Skripture Sunday’s Mixtape in 2011.
