New viral video as these two musicians from Toronto come together to put their own unique spin on the Bruno Mars’ hit song “Treasure”. Dan Drama re-makes the instrumental and Toronto MC Tommy SPITZ drops some bars over his rendition of the record.
Sit back, skin up, grab a Stella or a Guinness and get involved! It’s S. Kalibre’s album and wow, it’s something that Hip-Hop fans are going to go mad for with ten killer tracks that all bang. With deejay cuts from DJ Pressure and beats courtesy of Gee-O, Dead Man Walkn, Soul Theory, Sofa King London, Slap Up Mill, Rediculus and Architech, S. Kalibre this is a heavyweight slice of UK Hip-Hop. ‘SK Ultra’ is an album that everybody needs to get up on. Love this shizzle.

Following the wide spread critical acclaim and support for Metabeats ‘Caviar Crackle’ LP, AssociatedMinds are now proud to release the two brand new videos for ‘Music Pt.1′ featuring the inimitable stylings of the big man, Ralph Rip Sh!t ‘Music Pt.1′ has been re-envisioned for video with two opposing visual styles. The hazy artistic warmth of the Summer version, with an added pay off up it’s sleeve for those willing to wait. Or the raw, Super 8, home movie feel of the Winter cut. Two different styles for you to choose from so it all comes down to personal taste. The question is which do you prefer? Sun? Or Snow?
The track is also available for free download at Music Part One ‘OG Mix’ MP3 and AssociatedMinds.com

Here’s a new clothing brand that all Hip-Hop fans should get up on. Tidy, smart, adventurous, cutting edge and something you need to get in to. Established in 2012 SNEK (See No Evil Kollective) introduced their urban culture inspired street wear collections to the underground tribes, and became one Kollective! As you’ll agree when you check the site, this label is a label that is going to blow up, so get involved now and support independent labels like this!!!
As a brand they are about celebrating the love for urban & Hip-Hop culture, from street-art, to music and fashion with values that consist of spreading positivity and love through our designs and voice. The SNEK logo is written as a tag and our “Mizaru”-symbol is taken from “the three monkeys” with a Buddhist saying; if you are not exposed to evil, you do not project evil on others. Combined, they give our brand it’s identity.
SNEK strives to continually grow it’s global Kollective. Always looking for new and innovating ways to do our t-shirts and accessory designs, and searching for great and exiting collaborations with other talented crews within their various fields. Snek is always evolving with a burning desire to be creative, and seen as well as heard!

Here is the debut solo release from Nature The Kidd, an emcee who has teamed up with the long running UK mixtape series UK Runnings for what can only be described as solid. For something to be solid it needs foundation, and the foundation here is the clever beat selection and original beat productions from the likes of Dead Man Walkn, Breddwinnaz, RD Millz, Tricksta and others. The tracks come in thick and fast, no short tracks though, which I liked, and plenty of guests but all of them on their A Game. Rappers such as Wilstar, Big Dutty Deeze and Krazy really impressed, but the best tracks on here I think are the solo tracks such as ‘Let Um Ave It’, ‘The Recipe’, ‘Sky Is The Limit’, ‘On My Ting’ and ‘Little Man’. His way with words is the attraction as his is rapid delivery. Nature can flips styles really well, bags of energy and bags of ideas. Make sure you grab the mixtape from his Bandcamp, you can make a donation (which we think you should!) or you can grab it for free, Whichever way you do it, just do it, this is good quality mixtape. We want his next release already!

“Rite Nah” is the first single from Jet Life co-founder, Trademark Da Skydiver’s forthcoming album Flamingo Barnes 2: Mingo Royale. The track features Dizzy Wright, who is among the numerous guest artists on Trademark’s highly-anticipated commercial follow-up to Flamingo Barnes. The album features Domo Genesis of Odd Future, Smoke DZA, Young Roddy, Bodega Bamz, Hardo, and Blizz. Trademark Da Skydiver is currently an “Artist to Watch” on iTunes Hip-Hop homepage based on his work with Jet Life on both editions of Jet World Order and his highly regarded Super Villain series.
Trade spoke exclusively to HipHopDX about what this album means to him and his career, “Since announcing FB2 there have been a lot of questions about my status with Jet Life. Jet Life is and will always be family. It’s time for me to show everybody that I can stand on my own, with my own sound and my own brand. I ain’t no backup dancer you feel me? This is an important step for me and ultimately it will make what I do in the future with Jet Life or with anybody else that much stronger”
