One thing you can guarantee about Detroit rapper ZotheJerk, he makes for one helluva interviewee !

In this latest filmed interview with westcoast online Streets Connect TV, he talks in great detail about various aspects of his past, present and future.

Of particular interest, he explains how he came to appear in the film “8 Mile” and how this led to a subsequent working relationship with the late Big Proof of D12. In this section, he also provides his own perspective of Proof’s humerous nature including anecdotes from direct experience, and the devastating effect his passing had on the wider community.

He also addresses a variety of topics including the ability to balance family life with career, offers advice on how to break the “dead beat job cycle”, and of course gives an insight into the political and social issues tackled in his new album “Black Beach” which released on Friday May 26th produced entirely by Frost Gamble.

The interview makes for fascinating viewing and you can watch it all on Youtube

Based in New York and run by executive editor Sunez, online publication Premiere Hip Hop are well known to cover hip hop with a focus on conscientious lyricism, superior rhyme skillz and wordplay and on point production – the key elements whether drawing from a traditional or more contemporary overall sound.

With a long time appreciation of UK crew Triple Darkness, they have run the rule over their latest member Iron Braydz’ new EP “Verbal sWARdz” which released on his Unorthostract label on 14th April 2014 – available at http://braydz.bandcamp.com

The review reflects Sunez’ own passion for the artform, setting the background scene in an introduction which ends

Now across borders and over waters there are the UK Triple Darkness crew of countercultural lyricists that ignite with insight. Their newest member, Iron Braydz strips it all down, keeps the collected fam enlisted as soldiers in verse trenches and gives an EP of concentrated explosions.

The review works through the 10 tracks produced by Iron Braydz, Ringz of Saturn, Agor & Daniel Taylor and featuring Sean Price, Prince Po, Triple Darkness, Kyza, Skriblah, Phat Kat & DJ Shortee Blitz, and summarizes :

As part of one of the great crews of importance, sharing lyrics of relevance and fiery inspiration worldwide, Triple Darkness’ Iron Braydz is a war chief cutting heads off devils with no limitation and the deeper understanding the more you listen….With Verbal Swardz, we at least know the real brothers out in the UK are thriving in their own league.

VerbalSwardz-Sampleface

The new EP “Verbal sWARdz” by north London Emcee & producer Iron Braydz releases a week today, Monday 14th April.

The first in a series of releases for the Triple Darkness & FuFu Gang member this year, it’s a very strong marker for what lies ahead for the rapper who also has an acting role in a new film “Night Bus” shot by award winning director Simon Baker due out later in 2014.

There has been extensive international media interest in the release, the latest of which comes via a review by British online publication Sampleface

Contributor Taytula Burke opens the article “His past two offerings Devil May Cry and Holla @ Braydz saw the NW10 rapper prove that being a student of the game can pay off — particularly when wordplay and lyricism become synonymous with your name. So is it reasonable to expect that tracks that even he previously slept on would be worth the time of day? Abso-frickin’-lutely.

Read the whole review HERE

The EP is largely self produced and includes features by Prince Po, Sean Price, Phat Kat, Kyza, Skriblah and several of his fellow Triple Darkness members. He will be launching the official audio stream of the entire EP tomorrow, Tuesday 8th April, at midday (GMT) premiered by Shout 4 Music as part of their feature on him, so look out for that at www.shout4music.com

The EP releases to the public on 14th April, and to celebrate he will also be launching a new video for Rambo on that day, shot in London last week by Global Faction.
