rough drafts


Whoa! where have I been frequenting while Tom’s been releasing these. Tom Caruana, after listening to these i have to wonder just how good the beats are that he isn’t giving away. And as you can see from the MC’s he has chosen to remix, Tom knows his craft. Enjoy!

One of my favourite MC’s, Skuff. has just let loose 2 projects for the good people to digest. Deep Covers is just as it sounds. It sees Skuff going over some recognisable (and some not so) beats, that according to the man himself is a project that he will keep adding to from time to time. The second is an extension of he and Inja’s Skuff and Inja Show, entitled New Year Special (in February?). Enjoy!

Krate Krusaders presents Bootlegs & Beat Tapes

time for sunday (a)mass


‘777 and Beit Nun unveil their latest offering, a collaborative project showcasing the ever-evolving styles of both artists, in this unspoiled collection of ideas, emotion and sound, creating a project that is upmost refreshing, yet exceeedingly complimentary in both style and direction...’

To clarify. this is a damn nice EP. At only 3 tracks and a remix deep (by Jabba the Kut) i’m hoping that this is a precursor toan upcoming long player. Peep the taster.

It is officially Black History Month. I shouldn’t have to tell you what you should spend at least part of this month brushing up on. But then again it shouldn’t take a special month for you to get the grey matter in gear. p e a c e

he’s Mental

Mentalist _ Make You Proud (2011)

Whoa this is a free album!?!?! Mentalist is right because there must be a little out there to be giving away an album of this quality (hehe). what also makes this release stand out is it’s sense of We rather than I. He is not so much bigging up himself as bigging up his family and Hip Hop as a whole. Superb stuff.

This is why Hip Hop is the conduit to youth consciousness. Peepz that would never normally watch the news or any other current affairs program need only listen to artists such as Poetic Pilgrimage or Mohammed Yahya  to find out what’s really going on. Poetic P’s second album', Starwomen, is coming soon. Peep the clip.
