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.

New UK Single & Video – Jamieson – Ways To Get Ahead

Kilburn’s Jamieson, now based in the South Bronx, NYC, follows up his tribute to his hometown “London Freestyle” with the new single & video “Ways to Get Ahead”.

Taken from the final instalment of his Mixtape Trilogy “I Came I Saw”, the track chronicles the journey he’s taken from his days as part of UK hip hop duo Twisted Thoughts with K.I.L.L.A.G.R.A.M. to his move over to the States and the work he’s been putting in since arriving there in 2007.

From the launch of his Foreign Exchange mixtape hosted by DJ Whoo Kid, he’s enjoyed regular support from DJ Booth, XXL, 2 Dope Boys, This Is 50, Hip Hop Dx and a wide range of other key tastemakers across the country. Working with artists Joell Ortiz, Sean Price, Skyzoo and receiving co:signs from Yelawolf, RZA and B-Real, there’s little doubt this London born & bred MC has been packing in a mountain of work, and “Ways To Get Ahead” documents the grind.

The mixtape launches soon ahead of his brand new single “I Get Busy”, set for international release in the
Spring
