The Red Guy from the Cartoon Network series ‘Cow And Chicken’ was arguably one of the greatest cartoon characters ever created, for me he’s up there with Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, and Foghorn Leghorn. Created by David Weiss, ‘Cow & Chicken’ and the spin-off show ‘I Am Weasel’ […]
Joey Bada$$, that Boom Bap 90s dude from the Pro Era collective, finally drops his second album “All-Amerikkkan Badass”, the follow-up to 2015’s “B4.Da.$$”. This is the second studio album from Joey and typically, a sophomore LP is out to prove an artist’s growth and maturity, and with […]
“Here Come The Lords” is the début album by golden era legends Lords Of The Underground, a three-piece group from New Jersey consisting of Mr. Funke, DoItAll Dupré and DJ Lord Jazz. This album is a mix of bold and confident lyricism mixed with speaker-thumping Boom Bap sounds, […]
“Civil War” is a mixtape that was released in December last year by Hip-Hop group Bankai Fam, but unfortunately like their début EP “On My Side”, this satisfying example of contemporary Hip-Hop is going unnoticed. “Civil War” is marketed as a mixtape but it’s more like a full-blown […]

“On The Way Uptown: The Uptown Saturday Night Demo” was released last year in late December and it acts as an accompaniment to Camp Lo’s début album “Uptown Saturday Night”. The album cover for “On The Way” features silhouettes of the four dancing characters from the “Uptown” artwork […]
Camp Lo, a Hip-Hop duo consisting of rappers Geechi Suede and Sonny Cheeba epitomised the slick, multisyllabic lyricism of mid-nineties rap music. The group’s impressive début album “Uptown Saturday Night” was released in 1997 and it introduced us to the pair’s unique style juxtaposing elements from the 70s […]
I missed the release of many albums on the run up to Christmas so now I’m playing catch up… one of my favourite releases from late last year was “Elixir” by Aaron Rose, the MC previously known as A La $ole. This is a decent début from the […]
A year after Black Moon’s classic “Enta Da Stage” was released, the Boot Camp Clik’s second group Smif-N-Wessun dropped their début album “Dah Shinin’”, the last LP from the collective to be released on Nervous/Wreck Records. This album shares a kinship with “Enta Da Stage”, not only because […]
