Petrelli Brothers Ghost Diaries

We’re a little late on this one Kings and Queens, please accept my apologies. Here is the Petrelli Brothers Ghost Diaries album released on Boom Bap Professionals.

The album was released on the 15th April 2017 and is available to download from the Boom Bap Professionals Bandcamp page. The Petrelli Brothers Ghost Diaries album is 10 tracks long, and features guest appearances from the likes of Natrill, Double Deuce, Deeviant and Kritikal. For those new to Petrelli Brothers, Lego and Spee69 team up and go back to back on tracks over Lego production. DJ Leach has provided scratches for the record, with Lego also recording, mixing and mastering the record. The single Summer Rain warranted a video which I’ve posted below. You can also view the official artwork, download link and tracklisting for Petrelli Brothers – Ghost Diaries here.

Madchild – Badchild (Official Video and European Tour Info)

• May 3, 2017
Madchild (Swollen Members) - Badchild

Madchild (Swollen Members) – Badchild

This is the brand new single from Swollen Members‘ “Madchild” titled Badchild. The single has been produced by Evidence of Dilated Peoples.

The single Badchild is one of the lead singles from Madchild‘s forthcoming solo album. The single, and album have been entirely produced by Evidence of Dilated Peoples. When speaking of the collaboration, Madchild said,

“It has been a great experience making my new album The Darkest Hour with Evidence. He’s always been one of my favorite MC’s and producers, as well as a good friend. The process of making this record at his studio really pushed me to be the best I can be. The result was exactly what I was looking for and this album feels a little more mature than previous releases, but still a natural evolution for me as an artist.”

There is also a European Tour starting now (a big shoutout to The Parish in Huddersfield for showcasing some true school Hip-Hop). You can view the full tour dates below and listen to “Badchild” on the YouTube player too.

Blackk Chronical - The Unapologetic Autopsy of Crime EP

Blackk Chronical – The Unapologetic Autopsy of Crime EP

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.

1. A Marionette (prod by Architech)
2. Stepp Backk (prod by Chief Bob)
3. Pressure (prod by Architech)
4. Pain & Passion (prod by Self Taught)
5. The Aviator (prod by Chief Bob)
6. Supervillain (prod by Architech)
7. Green & Gold ft Phoenix Da Icefire (prod by Chief Bob)

Leaf Dog New Album Dyslexic Disciple and Single My Scene

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.

Also, you can follow Leaf Dog on Twitter (@MCLeafDog) to see the latest music first.
