D.Focis The Detroit Wonder Mixtape (Free Download)

• July 22, 2017
D.Focis The Detroit Wonder

D.Focis The Detroit Wonder

We love great Hip-Hop music, and hope you enjoy the D.Focis The Detroit Wonder mixtape. The Detroit rapper teams up with 9th Wonder who produced the record.

We’ve been re-introduced to D.Focis with the D.Focis The Detroit Wonder mixtape. D.Focis was featured years ago on Hip-Hop Kings after his work with Bobby Creekwater. His production credits are incredible, alongside his rapper credentials. More of that soon. The Detroit Wonder mixtape is available as a free download from Datpiff. D.Focis raps over some soulful 9th Wonder beats to give fans an excellent mixtape. The ten-track record doesn’t feature any collaborations, which highlights the strength in the music.

As we mentioned above, D.Focis has some incredible credentials. He’s worked with producers J Dilla, Madlib and Kanye West among others. 9th Wonder is the latest addition to his resume. He’s also produced records for countless artists including Killer Mike (Run the Jewels), Aloe Blacc, Swifty McVay (D12), Nappy Roots and Arrested Development. If those credentials don’t speak volumes, nothing will. We would highly recommend taking advantage of this free mixtape while possible.

You can view the track listing and embed player for the D.Focis The Detroit Wonder mixtape below.

2 Hall Of Fame
3 Neva Have To
4 Bright Side
5 The Detroit Wonderful

Conway - Moroccan Waters ft Meyhem Lauren

Conway – Moroccan Waters ft Meyhem Lauren

We’ve got a new video from Conway the Machine. The single Moroccan Waters features Meyhem Lauren, and is the latest offering from the Shady Records / Griselda artist.

The new single from Conway, “Moroccan Waters” is the latest offering from the Griselda artist. Conway is highly tipped as one of the most exciting rappers at the moment, and this video illustrates why. Conway teams up with Meyhem Lauren for the track, which has been produced by Daringer. The official video has been uploaded to the Griselda Records YouTube channel. We’ve embedeed the player below.

It was announced earlier this year that Griselda Records had signed a deal with Shady Records. It’s a great achievement for the label, and the flagship artists Conway and Westside Gunn. It’s been amazing seeing the rise of Griselda since we first supported them a little over two years ago. We expect the popularity of the label and artists to rise further, as their reach will inevitadbly have no limits. We’ll continue to post and share new music from Griselda as soon as we receive it.

Koss – Aint You Dont Stop ft Torae

Belgian producer Koss teams up with Coney Island rapper Torae for the new single “And You Don’t Stop”. The single is released thanks to Below System Records.

The “And You Don’t Stop” single is taken from Koss’ upcoming album “Born to Live”. We would expect more singles to leak prior to the album, which will be available in September. The collaboration with Torae has really set the bar for the rest of the album. We will of course be looking out for updates, and sharing them on the website. We don’t have a specific date for the release. We will post the artwork and tracklisting as soon as we have it.

We don’t know much about Koss at the moment. We do know the Belgian producer has a great hype created around the upcoming album. The signature boom-bap sounds are expected to be present throughout the whole “Born to Live” album. The project will be available on digital and CD release, along with a special vinyl edition via Slice of Spice. Below System Records are responsible for the release and we’ll be attempting to get a Hip-Hop Kings exclusive in the forthcoming weeks.

25 Facts on ExP RemarkableUnremarkable

• July 17, 2017
ExP RemarkableUnremarkable

ExP RemarkableUnremarkable

West Yorkshire rapper ExP has just released his latest album RemarkableUnremarkable. Make sure you download from Bandcamp (HERE). You can read the 25 Facts on ExP RemarkableUnremarkable below.

1) 90% of the album was recorded sitting down

2) Track 3 “Sex Panther” had a verse cut cos I was just rambling about misogyny in rap a bit too much

3) Track 8 “The Brain” was a beat I originally recorded and filmed WY MC Sandy Minto for a studio promo vid but then decided I wanted to use it instead.

4) …same for Track 9 “We Don’t Do That” but swap Sandy Minto with Eskar!!!

5) I wrote about 8 or 9 verses for Track 14 “We Can Do It Together” before settling on those 4. It nearly went a very different direction indeed…!

6) I wrote Track 6 “Meh” for a laugh in 2011 and did the video with Paul Cockcroft in about half an hour. I had to re-record the whole thing as I couldn’t successfully splice “2017” into the date bit…

7) There are 31 verses on this album

8) There’s a bonus track on the cd and digital (but not vinyl) which is a reprise of Track 7 “Trivia

9) Most of this album was written on a Monday night between 11pm and 3am

10) The house in the artwork originally had solar panels on but after a legal battle with mis-sold panels from a dodgy company I had them removed from my real house AND the artwork house.

11) The artist, Martin Lovegrove, also did the artwork for Tough Crowd’s 7″ “Manners”

12) I drew my original idea for the artwork on MS Paint

13) There’s a version of the artwork where “Unremarkable” is mirrored so as to actually look like it was reflected in water but it didn’t look right

14) I sampled John Travolta for Track 11 “Ode to the Internet”

ExP

15) I was going to work with a photographer to recreate the artwork but we didn’t bother.

16) The photograph used in the booklet was just the photographer (Kate Love) getting a few initial shots to test the light. The rest were taken in front of speed camera signs but weren’t required in the end.

17) I got the booklets printed by a different company than the people who did the CD to save cash cos I’m tight

18) This is my second album and my first for 11 years. The first is fucking awful.

19) Chief Wigz was one of the first people to hear this album in full. Followed by Lunar C and Hashfinger.

20) Steve Ling did a great guitar riff on Track 11 “Ode To The Internet” but I had to remove it as it messed with the rhythm of the vocal…

21) The speed camera logo throughout the artwork can be see on the artwork for Flame Griller albums I and II

22) I think the “remarkable” version of me in the artwork looks nowt like me and the “unremarkable” is bob on which says a lot

23) There is a version of the artwork with a pink limo outside the “Cream” club

24) Track 10 “Stick in the Mud” (the next single) was produced at a much slower speed and it was an accident I recorded it as “fast” as it is. Tried to redo it at original speed and it sounded crap.

25) Track 14 has made a few people cry. Watch out!

We hope you enjoyed the 25 Facts on ExP RemarkableUnremarkable. Please remember to download the album today from Bandcamp. Also watch out for the next single “Stick in the Mud” coming soon!
