With his new album “God Save the King (Proper English Version)” having dropped in August, Ohio’s Copywrite took time out recently to speak with Ayara Pommells for Stupid Dope

They discuss the concept behind the album and the differences between the “Proper English Version” and the version released to the US market, the differences and similarities in the US and UK hip hop scenes, and his new Mhz album “Megacy” – also recently covered in this month’s Clash Magazine “Rapture & Verse” column.

He speaks on how he rates artists such as Rhyme Asylum, Lady Sovereign, Radiohead, The Snowgoons, Slick Rick and Joe Budden and his views on female emcees Jean Grae, Kreayshawn, Eternia, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill & Roxanne Shante

The new Mhz album “Megacy” will be dropping over the next few months and should coincide with a planned tour of Europe & The UK in early 2013.

THE LOCK IN BLOG

We have just launched a new blog on Tumblr, “The Lock In”

As a company, Urbanelite Promotions have several online platforms on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, various blogs etc to help promote our international client base

We decided to launch a less formal platform on tumblr to highlight anything that entertained or interested us. This could be news, videos, tracks, sport, music industry “advice”, anything of any nature that we just felt like posting.

This will also be a platform for artists & labels, most likely involved in hiphop, rap, r&b, soul or any other form of “urban” music who we may not be directly involved with, but we like, to have their videos or tracks uploaded. Any artists interested in having their material or details of events added should check the site first, all the contact details are there.

As a taster, we have uploaded some examples, including a rare interview with Souls of Mischief & Sarah Love & “tour stories” from their time in the UK supporting the release of the album Montezuma’s Revenge, when we took D12 to meet Tim Westwood & news of their tour last year & dates in the Uk this year, and some other videos of Stateside & UK artists such as Copywrite, Vast Aire, Supar Novar, Depprooted & we’ll be adding more soon. We also uploaded a couple examples of our 8Tracks mixes featuring international hiphop artists we’ve been in touch with over the years.

Here are a couple examples (the full tracklistings are on the new blog)

Mix 1 incl Phi Life Cypher, Genesis Elijah, Epsilon Project & Classified

Mix 2 incl MC Life, Sway, Skinnyman, Vast Aire, 6th Sense, Saigon, Eternia, Scram Jones

Every week or so we’ll then summarize the latest content in our various other online platforms. Only submissions to the contact quoted at the tumblr page will be considered. General mp3 blast companies need not apply….!

Otherwise, drop by & if you want added, drop us a line
