VerbalSwardz-DeadEndHipHop

Latest to review the new EP “Verbal sWARdz” by north London rapper & producer Iron Braydz is US online Dead End Hip Hop

They have been a regular supporter of this release, publishing posts about video releases and the audio stream, and their contributor Samuel Odunsi Jr has a strong interest in hip hop with the classic elements of meaningful lyricism and superior wordplay combined with quality beats & production

Picking up on the major influence Wu Tang has had on the artist through the years, the review reflects the mic skills on display as well as Braydz own production style :

I am a growing fan of the hip hop scene in the UK, including the battle rap league Don’t Flop, but I am always held in awe at the speed at which these rappers spit their lyrics. Iron Braydz is no exception. But like any good lyricist, Braydz isn’t just spitting for the hell of it…..All the bars said on this project by Braydz and the respective artists featured does indeed make this a verbal war….If you are fan of quality lyrics and that grimy RZA-inspired production sound, you need to listen to Verbal sWARdz.

RPL-TheSkinny

Edinburgh based physical & online publication The Skinny Magazine covers a broad spectrum of entertainment including theatre, comedy, art, literature, going out / events, travel and music.

Their contributor, Bram Gieben, likes his hip hop and is the latest to review the new debut solo album by London’s Apex Zero – “Reality Provoking Liberation” – which releases on 28th October. The rapper & producer would have been best known previously as part of the duo First and Last (still very much alive & kicking) and also as part of the group The Pantheonz of Zenn-La, renowned for their frenetic live shows.

Opening with “Apex Zero’s raw, manifesto-driven raps have a lot in common with the edgy, paranoid psy-ops chat of Triple Darkness and M9. Chaotic Revolt in particular captures the anger and violence inherent in the legacy of the 2011 London riots, and throughout, the beats draw on the rich tradition of string-led, cinematic sample-craft of RZA” it is another review picking up on the range of political & social issues covered in his rhymes and delivered in such a way that “Throughout, Apex Zero’s lyrical content is angry, literate and intelligent

New UK Single & Video – Jamieson – Ways To Get Ahead

Kilburn’s Jamieson, now based in the South Bronx, NYC, follows up his tribute to his hometown “London Freestyle” with the new single & video “Ways to Get Ahead”.

Taken from the final instalment of his Mixtape Trilogy “I Came I Saw”, the track chronicles the journey he’s taken from his days as part of UK hip hop duo Twisted Thoughts with K.I.L.L.A.G.R.A.M. to his move over to the States and the work he’s been putting in since arriving there in 2007.

From the launch of his Foreign Exchange mixtape hosted by DJ Whoo Kid, he’s enjoyed regular support from DJ Booth, XXL, 2 Dope Boys, This Is 50, Hip Hop Dx and a wide range of other key tastemakers across the country. Working with artists Joell Ortiz, Sean Price, Skyzoo and receiving co:signs from Yelawolf, RZA and B-Real, there’s little doubt this London born & bred MC has been packing in a mountain of work, and “Ways To Get Ahead” documents the grind.

The mixtape launches soon ahead of his brand new single “I Get Busy”, set for international release in the
Spring
