Cali Agent Planet Asia and Mhz front man Copywrite join forces for a rare tour of Europe from 31st January to 10th February 2013 and plan following up with a visit to UK shores

Ohio’s Copywrite has had a huge 2012 in the UK. First of all with the release of his new solo album “God Save The King (Proper English Version)” which was covered by over 40 British publications and featured some heavyweights in the English scene including Akala, Bigz Flygerian, S.A.S., Iron Braydz, Genesis Elijah, Mystro and Melanin 9.

The Ohio Hip Hop Awards “Lyricist of the Year” for 2011 followed up quickly with the long awaited new album from his group Mhz. “Megacy” sees Copywrite, Tage Future and Jakki da Motamouth team up once more with producer RJD2, and includes features and further production contributions from Harry Fraud, Ill Bill, Gangrene, Marco Polo, Stu Bangas, Blu and J Rawls.

Known throughout the hip hop world with a huge reputation built for his countless rap battles and as an emcee with punchlines for days, it will be the first time in around a decade that UK fans will have the opportunity to witness the man in action.

Joining him will see a welcome return for Planet Asia. The Fresno veteran emcee has just announced that he will be releasing a new collaborative album with New York producer Gensu Dean in 2013 for Mello Music Group, having released his latest album Black Belt Theatre in 2012.

He has joined forces on similar projects in recent times with DJ Muggs, Gold Chain Military Crew, G-Force and Madlib

An artist of the highest calibre, he’s been a long time favourite for lovers of that Tru Skool sound throughout the world.

Its sure to be in the “not to be missed” category for all who appreciate the best in hip hop

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.

Ohio’s Copywrite drops this banger “PYT” with the UK’s Loudmouth Melvin and Skillit as a pre-cursor to his new album “God Save The King”, due out late autumn on Man Bites Dog Records. The track produced by Kount Fif also features Jay Notes.

He started out in the game in 1998 as part of the still current group Mhz, and became known for working with producers RJD2 on The High Exhaulted, Jay Zone & Jay Dilla on Cruise Control and featured with the UK’s Rhyme Asylum in 2007. He’s earned the reputation in the States as a battle hardened MC with punchlines for days, and spent the past year putting together the new solo album as well as the new Mhz album “Megacy” due out 2012.

“God Save The King” includes features from Mystro, Genesis Elijah, Iron Braydz, Melanin 9, Akala, Bigz Flygerian, SAS, Don Strapzy, Context & Don Jaga, standing shoulder to shoulder with Sean Price, Royce da 5 9, Crooked I, Inspectah Deck, Roc Marciano, and more.

He will be in the UK shortly for some video shoots, and the associated tour is being arranged in the UK and Europe for February 2012.
