EARL SWEATSHIRT – NOWHERE, NOBODY

Soundtracked by his new album ‘Some Rap Songs,’ Earl Sweatshirt releases a new short film entitled ‘Nowhere, Nobody.’ Directed by Naima Ramos-Chapman and Terence Nance, the film is an art-house flick that’s as experimental as the album itself; seemingly exploring themes of black identity and fatherhood, paying homage to his late father, South African poet…

KOJEY RADICAL – 25 FT. KZ

Kojey Radical teams up with long-term collaborator KZ on new track ’25’, his first release since last year’s album ‘IN GOD’S BODY‘.  In essence, it’s a celebration of what he’s managed to achieve at the age of just 25: “I’ve had a little bit of time and reflect as of late, a younger version of me…

MS BANKS – HOOD BITCH

Ms Banks drops off a new video alongside latest track ‘Hood Bitch.’ The South London MC recruits producers Splurgeboys for a hard hitting rap anthem that sees her go full braggadocio: “In the Merc 3-door, boss bitch galore / Sauce dripping on the floor and I keep it raw.” Stream below via YouTube.

JAY PRINCE – WONDER EP

Following recent single ‘BEAMLIGHT‘, Jay Prince releases new EP ‘Wonder’.  The seven track collection opens with the meandering ‘RUN IT DOWN’, followed by aforementioned single and low key banger ‘BEAMLIGHT’.  After that, we’re sorry to say things get a little homogenous.  Prince’ previous releases ‘Cherish‘ and ‘Late Summers‘ were truly exceptional; packed with blissful moments…

CHE LINGO – SENSITIVE

We first heard Che Lingo’s long-awaited ‘Sensitive’ EP at a listening party in North London, and we were struck by its honesty.  It’s a seven track collection of carefully put together works, including recent single ‘Circles‘.  Mick Jenkins’ feature on ‘No Sidekicks’ is a match made in heaven, but far from the only highlight.  EP…

LITTLE TORMENT – START FROM SCRATCH

Little Torment releases ‘Start from Scratch,’ the first single to come from upcoming project ‘Behind Closed Doors 3.’ It’s a fairly simple cut; the South Londoner laments wasting energy on trying to living lavish before concluding that, after all’s said and done, it made him who he is. It’s refreshingly introspective without tipping over into…

JAY PRINCE – BEAMLIGHT

Should someone tell Jay Prince it’s ‘Lightbeam’?  Probably. Is his new track a banger regardless?  Absolutely.  Produced jointly by Sango and Savon, the beat is sparse; all handclaps and hi-hats with a light, melancholy keyboard refrain wandering beneath Prince’ bars.  The apocalyptic video comes directed by Filmawi, and as this is the first drop from…
