veteran-britishhiphop

Shortly before the release of their new EP “Veteran”, NY State rapper Tone Chop and Winnipeg based producer Frost Gamble jumped on Skype to speak with London journalist Taytula Burke for long running online publication British Hip Hop.

The feature published today encompasses their discussion relating to the spirit and sound of the new EP in line with how they first met at rap battles during the 90’s, while also establishing their firm committment to hip hop’s evolution for a modern era.

The opener “Dedication” shouts out many of the G.O.A.T.’s including Rakim, Queen Latifah and Pac, an opening salvo declaring their origins and influences followed by biographical accounts in “Back in the Days” and “Better with Time”. However “Step Up” switches focus to the future, in line with the EP’s role as a warm up for a new album next year.

Their reflective and anticipatory approach is represented in the feature which can be read HERE

Omerta-BritishHipHop

East coast duo, MC M.I. and DJ Cutt – aka Constant Deviants – release their new album “Omerta” on June 28th through their label Six2Six Records.

The album has a theme in the tradtions of a Prince Paul, Little Brother or Kool Keith release in days gone past. The pair draw on their respective Italian and Russian heritage to adopt roles in a series of audio vignettes with familiar cultural reference points. The mafiosa inference is presented metaphorically to relay comparative situations.

This creative approach is consistent with M.I.’s additional focus in the world of movie making. Acting, film writing and film production has been a new venture since the release of “Swiss Banks” last year, a co:production with their European affiliates SWC Records.

MIlrg3

A new movie “Six2Six” which has a completely original storyline with no relation to the label itself co:stars Treach (Naughty by Nature), Syleena Johnson and Chief Rocker Bust Bee, and will be screened by Ralph McDaniels’ Hip Hop Film Festival at the National Black Theater in NYC during the first week of August.

Currently the rapper has been filming scenes for a comedy called “Can’t Live Without My Radio” due for release in 2017.

London journalist Taytula Burke jumped on the phone with them recently to discuss the new ventures, and the feature has just been published in British Hip Hop – read it HERE

ATM-BritishHipHop

London journalist Taytula Burke jumped on Skype recently to speak with west coast hip hop group Horseshoe Gang in the lead up to the release of their new album “Anti-Trap Music” out on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Ent.

As part of a broader feature piece for the UK online BritishHipHop.com, the interview focused on the meaning behind the title and the wider issue of lyricial content prevelant in various forms of the genre.

As in previous interviews, the group acknowledge the role artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J Cole have played in bringing the art of lyricism back to the table, but here again explain that one or two individuals cannot do that, or represent a movement alone. The inference being greater unity between like minded artists to help “clean up the industry” on a far larger scale

It’s an ongoing debate in the world of hip hop generally, but what’s certainly true is that the various evolutions have created very specific markets, often territory to territory. Apples & oranges.
