This is the debut solo project from rapper Blackk Chronical, with the offering titled “The Unapologetic Autopsy of Crime EP” which is available to download from bandcamp now.
I was very fortunate to hear the EP early, and thank Blackk Chronical for thinking of Hip-Hop Kings during the promotional campaign. I urge readers to buy the EP (available for just £4.00 from bandcamp). Blackk teams up for one guest appearance, his brother Phoenix Da Icefire for the single “Green and Gold”. Guest production comes from the likes of Architech, Chief Bob and Self Taught among others. I’ve posted the full track listing and the artwork to Blackk Chronical – The Unapologetic Autopsy of Crime EP here.

News from the High Focus camp today that Leaf Dog New Album Dyslexic Disciple is due to be released in the forthcoming months, and he shares the new single titled “My Scene”.
Fans have eagerly awaited six years since Leaf Dog’s previous solo record (From a Scarecrows Perspective) and the news of Dyslexic Disciple is welcome from all across the UKHH world. The Four Owls / Brothers of the Stone member offers brand new work which is anticipated to be his best to date. Furthermore, High Focus announced that a limited run of 500 7″ vinyl copies are available to order from the HF store, which is guaranteed to be sold out fairly soon. I would recommend grabbing a copy ASAP.
The first single from the album is titled “My Scene” in the form of a video in an 8-bit video game style, with director credits going to Astroknight. Leaf Dog’s signature voice is heard from the first bar and is typically addictive from the first minute. We will be sharing more music and videos as the inevitably reach our inbox, prior to the release of Dyslexic Disciple, so please make sure you’re checking back here. Also, you can follow Leaf Dog on Twitter (@MCLeafDog) to see the latest music first.
You can watch the brand new video for Leaf Dog – My Scene on the YouTube player below.
This is the brand new video for Hopsin All Your Fault which has been uploaded to the official HopsinTV YouTube Page.
The song is generally considered as fitting in the same level of brilliance as his Ill Mind series, which was one of the catalysts to Hopsin’s career on a mainstream level. Hopsin All Your Fault is the latest offering and takes shots at SwizZz, who was a former label mate at Funk Volume. There’s no news on a new official project at the moment but we’re all ears ready to share the news when there is. Also, Hopsin is currently on a European Tour which included a stop at Manchester last night!
“Listen little nigga, we ain’t in the same shoes /
You ain’t built a name or even paid dues.
Dammit, I’m ashamed of what it came to /
And if you had have ever reached my level of fame guaranteed Dame would have played you.
He’s in the wrong, don’t give me hate for it /
You know him better than me, y’all always had a broken relationship”
Following the release of his latest project “FLPM), this is the new Da Flyy Hooligan PinRolls video, directed by Ringz Ov Saturn.
PinRolls has been uploaded to the GourmetDeluxxx YouTube Channel, and has already been supported by various publications and artists from around the country. Da Flyy Hooligan PinRolls is the first offering we’ve heard since the release of FLPM (Fucc Ya Life Praise Mine) which is still available to download and stream from soundcloud, and is one of the tracks on the EP. The five-track EP features production from the likes of Sonny Jim, Agor, Bombay, Bad Company and G.I. We’re expecting plenty of new music from Da Flyy Hooligan as we progress through 2017. We have also been promised an official track listing and artwork for the highly anticipated SCUM album in the very near future, so watch this space.
You can watch Da Flyy Hooligan – PinRolls on the YouTube player below.
This is the brand new single from Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy (Mobb Deep) which has an official J57 remix.
Da Villins were working with Sean Price before his passing, and had already begun work with J57 before this official single has been released. Their link with Prodigy has resulted in Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy, which J57 has officially remixed for his birthday. We are expecting to hear more music from Da Villins and J57 as we progress through 2017, but news on an official collaborative project is yet to reach us.
J57 is of course working with Jamo Gang (J57 x Ras Kass x El Gant) which Hip-Hop Kings announced were an official group last month. The first track with Big Twins was blogged and met with a positive response, and fans are looking forward to more music from Jamo Gang, along with the highly anticipated album with Koncept which we will hear later in 2017.
You can listen to Da Villins FOH Pt 2 ft Prodigy (Mobb Deep) (J57 Remix) on the soundcloud player below.

Released via record label “So Deep Records”, the single is available to stream from the likes of Band Camp, YouTube and soundcloud, and even better you can download from Band Camp so please support Black and his latest single.

Following the release of her latest album “A Piece of Cake“, we have the brand new Leddie MC All Ive Got official video, which is the first single from the album.
Leddie’s album “A Piece of Cake” is available from all good digital retailers now, and was available to fans on January 24th 2017. Check the bandcamp link for Leddie – A Piece of Cake and make sure you support by downloading the album. Leddie MC All Ive Got is the first single to be taken from the album, which suggests we can look forward to more videos and singles being released in the forthcoming weeks and months. Hip-Hop Kings will be sharing the new music, but you can also keep up to date with the latest music and news from Leddie by following her on Twitter (@Leddie_MC).

This is the brand new video for deM atlaS In The Mud which is the latest offering from the young Rhymesayers Entertainment artist.
deM atlaS In The Mud has quite a story behind it, when speaking on the single, deM was quoted saying “‘In the Mud’ centres around a time in my life where I felt complacent and in a daze not knowing exactly where I should be spending my time. Too often, I found myself waking up late, hungover and laying next to a woman I barely knew, knowing that I had other shit to do.
“This kept happening, and like any habit or addiction that’s nurtured, it became comfortable. So, the song is basically about that; playing in the mud, drinking the mud, living in the mud & being strangely content with it.
Credits go to Samiera Abou-Nasr who directed the official video and “Dirty Art Club” who produced the single. Look out for new deM atlaS music this year, and go check out the previous project “mF deM” which was a collaboration with MF DOOM. You can listen to In The Mud on the YouTube player below.
With a double announcement of a new album and video, here is Jam Baxter Dumb, which also features Trellion and Lee Scott.
The Jam Baxter Dumb single is taken from the forthcoming album “Mansion 38”, which is the follow-up to the “.. So We Ate Them Whole” LP which he dropped in 2014 via High Focus Records. Dumb has of course come with a new video, on the HF YouTube channel, which has been produced by Chemo, and video credits going to Vikki Digby-Johns & Lee Scott. In usual High Focus fashion we expect a flurry of videos and other great promotional pieces before Mansion 38 drops later this year, and we’ll be sharing the artwork and track listing when it reaches our inbox.
