VerbalSwardz-TheCut

London’s The Cut Magazine took a trip up to Harlesden recently to meet up with rapper & producer Iron Braydz who has just released his Verbal sWARdz EP on his own Unorthostract label, available now from http://braydz.bandcamp.com

In this exclusive in person interview, they discuss a variety of subjects ranging from the origins of his artist name, spirituality, the influence of Wu Tang and how their music in effect saved his life, his views on underground and mainstream hip hop, Wiley’s “racial rant” on twitter and of course his new EP

The largely self produced 10 track EP is the beginning of what is planned as a series of releases over the next 12 months whether solo or as part of Triple Darkness and FuFu Gang. Verbal sWARdz also features Triple Darkness with further contributions from Prince Po, Sean Price, Kyza, Skriblah, Phat Kat and DJ Shortee Blitz.

VerbalSwardz-Fabricate

The latest review of the new Iron Braydz EP “Verbal sWARdz” has been published by British online Fabricate

The north London Emcee & producer has put together a very strong 10 track release, which also features Prince Po, Triple Darkness, Sean Price, Kyza and Skriblah, and the new review written by Ethan Everton reflects the quality on display

Snapshot passages from the review :

Back to dominantly instil fear into weak MC’s and shed a wealth of knowledgeable insights, Iron Braydz marks his return on April 14th with his Verbal sWARdz EP…..throughout the EP, Braydz induces terror over dark, bassy instrumentals, spitting without compassion or empathy through a multitude of immodest verses….compiled full of lyrical devastation, with too many unnerving & aggro verses to count. Full of quick-fire rhymes, intricate verbal frenzies and perspectives worth pondering, we shall be watching Iron Braydz future movements ready for when he decides to unleash the beast that patiently resides within him

Read all about it HERE

Iron Braydz is currently putting together a new video release to hopefully coincide with the EP’s release on 14th April, but meantime check the Triple Darkness & FuFu Gang member’s most recent release “Dredd”

Keep up to date with him on twitter @Braydz and also the publication @Fabricate_UK

East coast veteran duo MI and producer DJ Cutt, aka Constant Deviants, have been turning out hip hop bangers since the mid 90’s.

While MI signed with Arista in 2000, Cutt worked with N.O.R.E. and Roc-A-Fella Records, and the worlds collided again when MI featured with Rick Ross on N.O.R.E.’s “Yup” in 2006.

The duo set up a new label, Six 2 Six Records, and the imprint grew a global reputation for releases with the classic hip hop sound on the classic vinyl format. Fast forward to today, and they have just released their new album “Diamonds” from which this new video “Its OK” is taken

The duo have already begun recording the follow up album, while MI is soon to release a new EP as part of Trilateral Commission, a collaboration with producers from the United States and Europe.

You can get more information on all of Six 2 Six Records’ releases at six2sixrecords.bandcamp.com and reach them on twitter @Six2SixShift

MagnaCarta-LiveMagazine

Melanin 9’s launch night for his new album “Magna Carta” took place at The Vibe Bar in London’s Brick Lane in late November, and the venue was rammed full with the city’s hip hop fraternity there to see him joined by Choice FM’s DJ 279, Genesis Elijah, Rewd Adams, Iron Braydz, and his Triple Darkness sparring partners Cyrus Malachi and Phoenix da Icefire.

There was also a healthy media turnout, included in their numbers Snehal Shah from Live Magazine which publishes online and in physical print and covers a broad range of lifestyle subjects targeted at the youth market

The magazine has combined a review of the album with an interview and it can be read in full HERE

MagnaCartaWhiteRussian-DJMag

In the January edition of DJ Magazine in UK stores now, the Hip Hop Singles Reviews page places Melanin 9’s “White Russian” featuring Roc Marciano as their “Money Shot Single of the Month”

Written by the magazine’s Neil Kulkarni :

So pleased M9 is finally making the leap from mixtapes (if you ain’t heard High Fidelity or 144,000 you ain’t been reading this page enough!) to actually releasing an official album : this is the first single from “Magna Carta” and is just astonishing. A slow burning groove over which RM drapes some engrossing rhymes, crepuscular keys and smoky cymbals riding the groove deep intro your cortex. Essential

The rating’s all the more impressive when considering the company it keeps on the page, including 9th Wonder & Buckshot, Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson, Craig G, Edward Scissortongue, Piff Gang, Pacewon & Neek the Exotic ft Bumpy Knuckles. Check the video for it

Meanwhile, US online Premiere Hip Hop are the latest to give the album Magna Carta their full endorsement

MagnaCarta-PremiereHipHop

The review by their editor in chief, Sunez Allah, is extremely in depth looking into the subject matter behind the tracks.

Summarizing “Magna Carta ultimately is a fulfilled debut that like melanin, an infinite measure of our supremacy, cannot be merely gauged by the mere shade of the Black, Brown or Yellow skin, the country, city or ghetto of the MC or the cover of an album. It must be heard and understood by engaging in its depth and seeing the life of Hip Hop expressed by our people.

Magna Carta is available now on iTunes and in CD / physical format by mail order from http://m9ether.bandcamp.com
