One of them was with British online Rawroots, a platform which has run for many years now with a specific interest in UK and international hip hop & rap music.

Rah-Guestlist1

In the world of hip hop, few female rappers have stood the test of time more than New Jersey’s Rah Digga.

Best known for her involvement with Flipmode Squad, she’s operated as a solo artist for a number of years and last released an official studio album “Classic” in 2010.

Though it may appear to some that she’s been living “under the radar” for a time, London journalist Jazz Gill discovered that in fact she remains one of the busiest artists on the scene today.

With a string of internet releases over the past year, British magazine Guestlist decided to find out what’s been happening, and the reporter discovered that the legendary rapper has a full schedule ahead.

She speaks on her new New Jersey Dance Network project and the level of importance that has been given in the past few months, and the amount of personal time she has devoted to it. NJDN is a non profit organization aimed to help the young people in Newark have a safe place to be creative and channel their energy in a positive way. But there is also a further aim with it as she explains her plans for staging a new musical “Breakin in the Brix” and the launch of her new EP “Hood House”, all of which is linked.

The magazine also finds out her thoughts on the recent twerking craze and contemporary artists which she spoke on via the release of her new joint “New Hoes” earlier in the year, a track featured in the UK’s DJ Magazine recently. They also take it back and discuss her decision to leave Flipmode and her solo career from then until now, as well as her future release plans which include a new mixtape and album in 2014.

Very interesting insight which can be read HERE

It’s shaping up as one of the top UK hip hop album releases of 2013 gaining plaudits for the range of political & social issues addressed in the emcee’s lyricism.

The trademark energetic delivery developed as one half the First and Last duo and Pantheonz of Zenn-La crew is in full effect throughout, with his own production and that of OMeziah providing the ideal backdrop with some driving beats and a powerful soundscape.

The review which opens “The West London rapper does not mince his words with his lyricism, and tells the tale of living in London in the 21st Century well.” can be read HERE

RPL-BeardedMag

British online publication Bearded Magazine sets out “to generate coverage for independent labels & artists regardless of genre, background or how fashionable they are

They do just that via features, interviews, reviews, news, videos and their editorial policy isn’t driven by any other factor other than if they feel the artist merits the support. They are the latest, via guest contributor Leland Gill, to take a listen through the new album by London’s rapper and producer Apex Zero.

“Reality Provoking Liberation” is his debut solo album, out on 28th October, having previously released and performed live as part of the duo First and Last, who are still very much in force, and the group The Pantheonz on Zenn-La. Apex Zero’s reputation for conscientious lyricism delivered with a fierce flow developed in these early days and is still very much evident in the new album

The article opens “While other artists brag about changing the game, Apex Zero aims higher in his mission to wake up the world and educate them on the many corrupt systems in place today. In Reality Provoking Liberation, he pulls no punches in his lyrics as he spits about current inequality and organising to forge a better world” which in itself is as good a summary of the overall vibe to this album as any yet made. It’s a mix of this and other key factors which has made this such an impressive debut solo release, one picked up by a wide cross section of the media, and you can read more about the magazine’s thoughts on it HERE

The album launch event will take place upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL on Saturday 7th December from 8pm – 1am. Also appearing will be Caxton Press, Iron Braydz, DJ A.Gee (Itch FM) and host Peaches. Price is £5.00 on the door and the nearest tube is Aldgate East. More about the venue can be found at www.vibe-bar.co.uk

You will also be able to hear Apex Zero live on radio shortly, starting with tomorrow, Wednesday 23rd October on Reprezent Radio from 8pm with Tarek, on Saturday 26th October from 8.30pm with DJ Sammy Jay on Itch FM, and with Mr 13 on Bang FM from 10pm on Tuesday 29th October. Always makes an interesting interviewee, so definitely catch that if you can!!

Meanwhile, take a listen to the single off his album A Meeting of the Continents featuring Hasan Salaam and Iron Braydz, and be on the lookout for a brand new video for Absolute Zero being launched in the next couple of weeks

There’s a lot happening with Apex, so keep up to date with him on twitter @ApexZero00 and check the official website www.firstandlastpride.co.uk for more information and further social media links. Thanks to Richard at Bearded, and you can follow them on twitter @BeardedMagazine
