MagnaCarta-BrokenCulture

If youre into all things hip hop, and we assume you probably are, you should definitely check out the UK’s online magazine Broken Culture

They have a really wide level of coverage including music, events, art & graff, skate & bmx and much more. The owner Max Quinn has done an excellent job in representing the culture and you can easily tell that “the knowledge” is there given the in depth analysis provided.

They’re the latest to cover Melanin 9’s new album Magna Carta which releases on 3rd December. The feature covers the launch event last Friday at London’s Vibe Bar, provides some extra background information and history on the artist, you can also watch several of his videos and of course read a thorough review of the album itself.

It’s a really well presented piece of journalistic writing, and you can read it HERE

The CD version of the album can be bought direct from http://m9ether.bandcamp.com and the album will also be available to buy digitally. Note that you can also buy the vinyl 12″ of his highly successful single White Russian featuring Roc Marciano, so again if you contact his Bandcamp you can cop that heat there

There will be a lot more coverage on this release coming over the next few weeks, including special video features, and an exclusive snippet stream of the entire album via Bonafide Magazine shortly.

Meanwhile keep up to date with what Melanin 9 is doing on twitter @Melanin_9 and connect with Max and the guys @BrokenCultureUk

JAMIESON : NEW VIDEO & SINGLE “Last Time I Saw You”

London’s Jamieson drops yet another freestyle and video, in what’s been one of the most prolific periods for output from this MC who in his own words is on his own “foreign exchange”, now on the hard grind in New York City.

He lets loose on this one “Last Time I Saw You” over a jumpin hip hop beat, and its always good to hear someone with the flow skills go in with the shackles removed.

He released the first track “I Told You So” from his new EP “I Came I Saw Volume 3” last week, with a lot more to follow in the next couple of months. He has been in the studio with various other artists recently, among them London’s super producer Beat Butcha, so it looks like being a busy 2012.

Together with the video for “Last Time I Saw you”, also check out footage of him performing live at NYC’s famous SOB’s “Who’s Next” Hot 97 showcase.
