UK Runnings & Intuitive ‘The Shropshire Lad’ (Hosted by @TrickstaUK) @Intuitive96 @UKRunnings @ParkStreetPR

intuitive cover

Shropshire might not be the first place you think of when it comes to Hip-Hop but maybe that’s starting to change with lyricists such as Intuitive flying the flag for his manor. Here is a mixtape that seems to have it all from the bars to the beats with an impressive selection of different styles. In way one I love this as it shows he can rock on different tempos but in another way it doesn’t really help to define him as an artist with a sound. I think fans of labels like High Focus and artists such as Harry Shotta, Split Prophets and Benny Diction will like this dude. He has some killer punch-lines but it’s not all bars there is substance to this artist. This is a mixtape that you need in your collection, this kid can spit.

Black Dynamite (Centric x C.Keys) – “McFilthy”

Centric has garnered the attention of a plethora of international DJs, blogs and the like with the success of several singles he produced for other members of his Free At Last Music family as well as two highly rated singles from the emcee/producer duo Grand Opus he crafted with fellow Cali native emcee Joc Scholar with singles “Forever” and “The Key.”

Music fans familiar with producer Oh No will recall “Skits and Pieces,” a classic underground album that showcased the lyrical onslaught of a then relatively unknown emcee, known as Infamous MC (aka C.Keys). Keys has appeared on the ‘Wake Up Show’ with Sway & Tech on several occasions and is known as the first artist to freestyle answers to Sway and Tech’s questions live on air. Together Centric and C.Keys have formed a dynamic hip-hop duo called Black Dynamite and “McFilthy” is their debut video/single release.

Rich Quick is really making a name for himself of late and its no wonder why, the talent and the flow is so evident in everything he blesses! His new single “Sweet Summer” is the lead single off of DJ J Hart’s new mixtape “East Coast Draft”, and is a BBQ Hip-Hop anthem you need to check for. Dope production, catchy hook and brilliant rhymes.

Blabz – One Side To Every Story (Noble Throne Media) @Blabz1 @ParkStreetPR

More dope UK Hip-Hop here, this time from Blabz, a name you should get to know. Hailing from the East Midlands, its quite refreshing to hear talent from outside the capital city for a change. This focussed sound conspirator has been making music since his teens being influenced from the vibrant UK & US Hip-Hop scene. ‘One Side To Every Story’ couldn’t be accused of lacking ambition as it draws on a diverse range of musical elements from boombap, trap, grime, hip-hop and more, and comfortably pushes well beyond Hip-Hop’s limited horizons. For generations it seems British artists have talked a good game, but now though on this evidence we have a player that can blast away into the limelight.

QuePac – The Flask

Brooklyn rap duo QuePac released their first official music video today for “The Flask” from the QuePac EP, which dropped in March. Directed by Borough Entertainment, the video is more a short film than a video, telling the story of a night of excessive drinking across several different parties, and also the events of the morning after, starting with waking up in an odd place with a pounding hangover.

The song is an ode to self-destruction. It also features an energetic verse by Shane MauX (of the acclaimed group, Duk Duk Goose), and artwork for the project features a portrait by Eat the Cake NYC (who has worked on photo/film projects with Rex Arrow, Mac Miller, Homeboy Sandman and others). While this is QuePac’s first music video, members of QuePac have been featured on Shade45, Kevin Nottingham, 8th hop outlets.

QuePac is a collaboration between long-time Brooklyn favorites Que Cee and Paco (from Duk Duk Goose). The team-up sprouted out of the vibrant Bushwick music scene, where some of the most innovative sounds in Brooklyn are emerging, and from which most of their inspiration for this project is drawn.

Independently, they have performed shows at major New York venues such as Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theater, Public Assembly, Sullivan Hall, as well as at out of state venues and music festivals like Afro-Punk and StereoTerra.
