Fresh out the blocks today, the new single “Stay True” by London based producer Ramson Badbonez, the first to be taken from his album “Lead by Example” releasing through New Dawn Records on August 27th.
Rarely has a tracklist seen such a line up of hip hop heavyweights from both sides of the Atlantic share equal billing, and this joint sets the agenda early. Neck muscles get a serious work out with a beat savagely torn to pieces by east coast warriors Reks, Ruste Juxx and Blacastan with all their renowned verbal artillery in full effect. “Rawer than the booger suga”, it’s formidable business, prize fighters trading fierce bars and pulling no punches in a lyrical onslaught which leaves contenders on the floor. Hip hop addicts, crank this all the way up for the ultimate fix.
New Dawn Records have today announced details of the phenomenal new album “Lead by Example” by Ramson Badbonez set to release on August 27th 2021.
Long established as a cornerstone of the UK hip hop scene, the prolific rapper swaps the mic for the mixing desk for the first time in one of the most impressive production debuts witnessed for many years. Unique in its nature, heavyweights from the USA, Canada and the UK share equal billing in a stellar line up of guest featured artists delivering a showcase of the highest calibre lyricism, compelling rhymes and slick wordplay.
Beats influenced by original funk, soul, rare groove and jazz are woven into a soundtrack which fuse the classic and modern eras laced with additional scratch sorcery courtesy of truntablists Kompoze, DJ Jazz T and DJ Miracle, each track precision cut as a backdrop for the gamut of verbal artistry to unleash their full artillery.
Many months in the making, rarely, if ever, has such an array of trans-Atlantic talent appeared together on the one record. Coast to coast, Reks, Skyzoo, Blacastan, Recognize Ali, Moka Only, Ruste Juxx, Dizzy Dustin, Johaz (Dag Savage), Sleep Sinatra, Tru Trilla, Juxx Diamondz and Justo the MC are just some of those standing shoulder to shoulder with British luminaries Jehst, Micall Parknsun, Joker Starr, MysDiggi, Cyclonious, Phoenix da Icefire, King Kashmere and many more.
Benchmark standards are set high in Ramson’s new career progression while still allowing occasional room for his own continued lyrical prowess. This is an essential hip hop collector’s item with few comparisons, a landmark release.

Relaunched last year after a 15 year hiatus, hip hop label New Dawn Records have confirmed today that they will be releasing a new EP and album by New Jersey’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla over the next few months.
In an official statement published this morning, the label commented
“We relish the prospect of working with an artist of Tru’s caliber and style which represents perfectly our direction of travel as we enter an exciting new phase since re-launching last year.”
We at UrbanElite PR have of course worked with Tru Trilla previously in 2015, then as a member of the 050 Boyz group as they released the classic album “Everything 050”
The worldwide media coverage and radio airplay reflected the appreciation and quality of the rhymes skills, lyricism and dope production, and ultimately led to both DJ Eclipse & DJ Premier inviting them as guests on their Sirius XM shows.
Tru’s new releases feature his 050 Boyz sparring partners Prince Ak and RIQ, and also include many of his long term Brick City affiliates on vocal and production duties, beginning with the new EP “The Seymour Chronicles” which releases on March 17th, the precursor to “God of Barz” which drops May 29th
Produced entirely by another New Jersey native Joey Loax, the EP represents the classic east coast sound while Tru, Prince Ak, RIQ and Fly Kwa all deliver their trademark fierce rhymes, hooks, hard bars and lyricism.An already heavyweight under card before the main event later in the year, the label have just launched a video trailer for the EP on Youtube
Taken from the EP, the singles “Warzone” and “20 to Life” will be released during February
