We have another excellent display of lyricism from Koncept who seems to be able to use metaphors so easily, and I’ve posted the opening bars from the single below.
I practically already bought my Lamborghini //
A toy model version that sits right beside me //
And everytime I see it, it keeps me reminded //
That I need to work harder to keep the fucking champ beneath me.

This is the first time you’ve been introduced to Rob GF but it won’t be the last. Debut Single From Rob GF – Statue is the first of many to come to Hip-Hop Kings.
Debut Single From Rob GF – Statue has been premiered by Mass Appeal which is a huge co-sign. Produced by DRO, the Toronto-based Hip-Hop artist has also drawn other plaudits, notably our man Shotty Horroh among others. When speaking about the single Statue, Rob GF said,
“I wrote ‘Statue’ to quiet the hype of what’s currently being praised in Toronto,” says Rob GF. “Music is easily manufactured today and most of it sounds the same. There aren’t enough people applying their own unique styles to what they create. ‘Statue’ is also a reminder that I am still out to say, ‘Fuck you and fuck the industry.’ “I also want to add in that Toronto is a hotbed for talent, but not too often does the true unique talent have light shed on it as well.”
Make sure you follow Rob GF on Twitter (@CallMeRobGF) and look out for new music coming soon. You can listen to Rob GF – Statue on the soundcloud player below.

Koncept has spoken about the single which he’s released through his own imprint, Champagne Konny Inc. He’s released a series of new tracks every Thursday, which have been uploaded to Koncept’s soundcloud page.
“You can achieve anything that you want as long as you believe in it, and are willing to work for it. It’s all at an arms reach away, but you do have to reach your arm out. I’ve worked endless days and nights on my music. I’ve jeopardized relationships, friendships, money, my health, all because I love music so much, and I believe in it. Sometimes you can be so far from reaching your dreams, yet so close. I’ve opened these doors myself, worked my way towards the front, and I’m now sitting in the 4th row. I’m almost here.”
Make sure you follow Koncept on Twitter (@Koncept) and keep checking back with Hip-Hop Kings for new music from the artist, including a join album with J57 titled “Flight”. You can listen to Koncept – Almost ft Matt Stamm on the soundcloud player below.

This is the new track from Akala titled “Giants”. Akala – Giants ft Kabaka Pyramid and Marshall is available to download from 16th September 2016.
There’s definitely a summer / party vibe to this track, but true to Akala’s philosophies and ethos, there’s also a deep-rooted message behind the music. Akala – Giants ft Kabaka Pyramid and Marshall is sure to get the independent radio play and Social Media attention it deserves, but also satisfy the need for the conscious heads who still turn to Akala to be challenged when listening to music.
Akala will be releasing the “10 Years of Akala” album on 23rd September 2016, and the single Giants will be available to download from 16th September. When talking about the collaboration, Akala said “The track came about as a collaboration between myself and Marshall and when I reached out to Kabaka Pyramid, who ironically had just listened to my Fire In The Booth Pt. 4, he understood the concept of the track and was eager to lay a verse, despite being in the midst of a USA/European tour.“
