TimingIsEverything-HipHopDX

In the lead up to the release of his debut album “Timing is Everything” we linked up Detroit’s Kid Vishis with HipHop DX contributor Mike Trampe recently.

In the feature published on 24th July, they spoke about the thought process and choice of producers for the album, growing up in the Detroit scene as Eminem and D12 emerged globally and how the city has influenced him to become the artist he is today, and the experience and learning curve that touring in the UK with D12 & his brother Royce da 5’9″ in 2009 brought.

They then discuss his own future plans, his thoughts on the future for Detroit’s hip hop & rap scene, and speaks on the rap battle scene and specifically the Total Slaughter event he attended in early July.

TheSkinny

Nearing the end of their UK tour celebrating 25 years since the release of critical Beatdown, Kool Keith, TR Love & Ced Gee – aka the Ultramagnetic MCs – headed north of the border from Leeds to visit Glasgow.

DJ Bunty & co have put on many a good hip hop night at the city’s o2 ABC 2 venue in Sauchiehall Street, and this was no different. As the whole of the UK sweltered in high summer temperatures, the heat was on in more ways than one.

UltrasGlasgow1

The group later commented that they hadnt seen a crowd like the one in Glasgow for many years….and in fact THEY had to try and calm THEM down!!

The Skinny Mag’s Bram Gieben, who had previously interviewed Kool Keith in the lead up to their arrival, went along to check the night out and you can read his review HERE

The last scheduled show of the current European run is at The Dour Festival in Belgium on Saturday 20th July.

The group have also been busy recording new material, and you should be seeing the results of this a little later in the year. They are also due to take part in a BBC radio documentary shortly, more details to follow. Their most recent track release “Let the Bars Go” has proven to be particularly popular at the shows

You can keep up to date with them on twitter, including news on their Ultra Clothing Brand being developed, via the group account @MCsUltra Kool Keith @ultraman7000 and TR Love @TR_Ultra
