TimingIsEverything-RapEssence

Younger brother of Slaughterhouse member Royce da 5 9, Detroit’s Kid Vishis releases his debut album “Timing is Everything” on 22nd July. Out on Seven 13 Entertainment, it includes production by Mr Porter, Chase Moore (Hippie Sabotage), Nemisis & Nick Zervos and can be pre-ordered with autographed merchandise from www.seven13ent.com

US online Rap Essence are the latest to run the rule over the album, with a track by track analysis which is then summarized :

Kid Vishis really impressed me on here. He changes up the topics and subject matter on almost every song, while still coming with aggressive rhymes and boastful battle raps at the same time. This keeps the album feeling fresh and gives each of the songs its own unique identity, which is something that is missing from a lot of hip-hop albums nowadays

Read the full review HERE

Prior to the album releasing, he is also due to launch a new mixtape which will consist of original tracks only, so look out for a number of audio & official video releases over the next few months as well as widespread international media coverage throughout the summer.

Meanwhile, keep in touch with him on twitter @KidVishis and check out his single Heaven produced by New Jersey producer Nemisis

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
