TimingIsEverything-Rawroots

The long awaited debut album “Timing is Everything” by Detroit’s Kid Vishis (younger brother of Royce da 5 9) releases 22nd July on Seven 13 Entertainment.

One of Michigan’s most highly rated emerging rappers is no novice, having toured throughout the United States, Europe & the UK, produced a series of “Sick ‘EM” mixtapes since 2007 and featured on several of his brother’s albums and also worked with Crooked I’s fam Horse Shoe Gang.

He draws his influences from legendary lyricists down the years, and as debuts go, it’s a bold move that throughout the album he showcases his own mic skills with only one feature appearing on the track “Coward” – appropriately enough from his older brother

Production is courtesy of Shady’s Mr Porter, Chase Moore (Hippie Sabotage), Nemisis and Canada’s Nick Zervos

Unsurprisingly there’s been much international media interest in the release, and British online Rawroots have just featured the release HERE

Expect to see a lot of coverage on the album over the summer which can be pre-ordered at www.seven13ent.com

You can keep up to date with him on twitter @KidVishis and meantime check out the single “Heaven” released late in 2013 which is produced by Nemesis.

VerbalSwardz-UKHH

Latest review of the new EP “Verbal sWARdz” by north London Emcee & producer Iron Braydz, this time by the long running online devoted to British hip hop UKHH.com

The high regard with which his lyricism has been held in the UK for the past few years is summarized

Regardless of the flavour, Iron Braydz always serves up rhymes that are of the strictly highest order. With the exception of a select few, including a couple of whom from his own clique, nobody comes close to his pure rhyming prowess at this point in time. One can only assume that the projects over the coming months will explore different terrain but, for now, it is pretty exhilarating to hear this guy back spitting full stop.

Read the full review written by Jonathan Rimmer HERE

Released on his own Unorthostract label, the 10 track EP featuring Prince Po, Triple Darkness, Sean Price, Kyza, Phat Kat, Skriblah & DJ Shortee Blitz is available now at http://braydz.bandcamp.com

RPL-HipHopinEnglish

West London emcee & producer Apex Zero released his debut solo album “Reality Provoking Liberation” on 28th October to critical acclaim.

Drawing from the sensibilities of hip hop from the Golden Era, he has received plaudits for addressing a wide range of political and social issues in his rhymes & lyricism, delivered with his trademark firebrand flow. The latest online publication to endorse the release is the UK’s Hip Hop In English

In opening, they introduce the album as “a verbal lambasting directed straight at the head honchos holding office all over the world. Delicate it is not.” before dissecting the lyrics, beats, tracks and summarizing “Heavy, yes. Hard hitting, yes. Informed, skilful and dynamic, yes. It’s a philosophy self described as Neo-Hardcore. Not for the casual listener, but definitely one for those willing to open their mind and question their surroundings.

For anyone wanting a real grasp about what the album represents, read the review HERE

Meanwhile, Apex has been busy putting the finishing touches to his live set for the album launch party taking party on Saturday 7th December, upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL. It’s set to be one of the hottest hip hop events of the month as he will also be joined by Caxton Press, Iron Braydz (Triple Darkness), DJ A Gee (Itch FM) and regular Hoochinoo host Peaches.

Entry is just £5.00 on the door, the night runs from 8pm – 1am with the nearest tube station being Aldgate East. Apex built up a reputation for his live performances at events such as End of the Weak, Speaker’s Corner and the raucous shows as part of The Pantheonz of Zenn-La, so this should prove to be a big show with so much quality on display. Definitely don’t miss this one!

You can hear Apex and Iron Braydz together on his earlier single “A Meeting of the Continents” where theyre also joined by Hasan Salaam

Any further media enquiries about the album, request for interviews, requests for clean edits of any of the singles released or press pass requests for the event can be sent to UrbanElite PR HERE
