    Listening to the new Zion I album, beast of a tune this:
    Nice track, not sure about lyrics yet but that was first listen. Tight beat and video.

    Mild mannered Matt Martin, Editor in Chief of GamesIndustry International, pops up every now and then with a banging Hip Hop mix. Man's got taste.

    Not quite as banging.

    It's good but not as funky as their last album so I'm struggling to find it as instantly accessible.

    A few vids from it on youtube though so you can decide for yourself:

    We Dont Ft. The Grouch & Eligh

    The restrictions on tickets look pretty strict.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 13:52:39
    What restrictions?

    Does that mean he has some new music coming out?

    Bloody hope so.

    Yeah I saw him in Bristol years ago. It's not 'till April so hadn't quite thought ahead that far yet. Could be up for it!

    Just walking round the lounge walking my boy and put on fishscale for first time in year or so. Oh. My. God. Classic.

    What a lovely cd mix, ghostface, Madonna, clipse, classical music, NAS etc :)

    I need a couple of mixtape download links please.
    Is this a general request for links?

    You'll love this:
    P. Blackk - Contemporary Nostalgia
    http://pblackk.bandcamp.com/album/contemporary-nostalgia

    This is really good:
    Wrecking Crew Presents Wu-Tang Pulp
    http://wreckingcrew.bandcamp.com/album/wrecking-crew-presents-wu-tang-pulp

    This is a bit different but I love it:
    Lushlife - No More Golden Days
    http://lushlifemedia.bandcamp.com/album/no-more-golden-days
    Enjoyed all of these, thanks. The J Rawls production on the P Blackk album is (predictably) excellent. The Lushlife one, agree it's different and not something I'd usually gravitate to but I like it. The Wu Pulp one is a bit of a throwback, which is a good thing :)

    I only listened to number 6 so far but the track selection is excellent. I don't know who it's by but the track that starts at 31:30 is absolutely fucking hilarious

    Whoa rap really dropping off in America behind dance music. NAS life is good is nominated for Grammy, got loads of album of the year awards but has sold 350,000 as of end of November. If same album released five years ago it would be 1.5 million by now.

    Yeah it's 2 of them. MC (Zumbi) and a producer (AmpLive).

    Their previous album The Take Over is their best IMO.

    He's great but he puts out so much material there's no quality control.

    I don't think he's ever said no to a request to appear on another artists song.

    The official video for that tune is great:

    Task Force have released a couple of albums made up of stuff they didn't use for the Music from the Corner albums. Usually this stuff is dross, but I got the first one and it's surprisingly good, better perhaps than most of the MFTC stuff. Well worth a fiver. Haven't listened to the second one yet.

    What is it with rappers that make up silly little names for themselves to make them sound cool. It's quite laughable.

    @smoothpete This will be a special gig. Are they bringing this up North to Leeds or Manchester?
