PREVIOUS | Natty C – Ratchet
Hip-Hop Kings is often the voice of the voiceless when it comes to promoting unsigned talent and I have another great UK Hip-Hop track which I hope reaches the ears of as many as possible. HHK readers will be familiar with Natty C who is regularly featured on the website, and he’s teamed up with three other Midlands MC’s (Webster, Nastee and Marshy) for their collaborative track “About a Week Ago”. The beat is from “Hot Nigga” and I think you’ll agree that all four MC’s deliver great verses and represent the Midlands perfectly. You can listen to Webster, Natty C, Nastee and Marshy – About a Week Ago (Hot Nigga Remix) on the soundcloud player below.

Kosha Dillz is back with a brand new video for his single “In Da Club”. Not to be assosiated with the 50 Cent song (more like Homeboy Sandman on Illuminati) Kosha Dillz shares another one of our favourites from his album “Awkward in a Good Way” which was released late last year via MURS’ label 316. Credits go to Jesse Shatkin aka Belief for producing the track, and fans can download Awkward in a Good Way from the iTunes link listed above.

I’ve got a tip that Buggs Tha Rocka is quickly growing in status and I’m confident will be a name on everybody’s lips very soon. Buggs Tha Rocka presents the official video for his single “Bad Habits” which was uploaded today via YouTube and Vimeo. Buggs Tha Rocka has been votes as ‘Best Hip-Hop artist’ at this years Cincinatti Entertainment Awards, and has recently shared the stage with Talib Kweli (who is a big fan) at the A3C Festival. Look out for plenty more coming soon. However, you can watch Buggs Tha Rocka – Bad Habits on the YouTube player below.

Kinetik presents ‘The Kinesis Thesis (Gun in the Mouth Remix)’ which has been produced by Slap Up Mill, and also ‘Flying High (Don’t Look Down Remix)’ which has been produced by Flamesyall.
