Illerstate – Is It a Problem. Written by Adam Darbyshire
Illerstate are back with another hard hitting track off their new E.P entitled ‘Evilution’ which you can purchase directly from iTunes. Illerstate – Is It a Problem is the latest release from the upcoming crew.
This hip hop trio are a strong piece of the UK scene, especially the Hip-Hop scene within Manchester. As we have mentioned before the group is made up of Bad Newz, Sadiztik and WZ who keep coming back with these dark, heavy beats for your ears! All of the production is handled by themselves and the master behind this track is Bad Newz.
They previously released ‘Suicides’ and this video has the same element and feel to it, with some nice, clean motion shots showing the grimy element of Manchester that they represent with the dark element showing throughout, be it the lighting effects or the groups attire, once again all dressed in black (Johnny Cash would even approve).
With their EP available digitally they are taking orders from all over the place and if you watch the video below it’s easy to see why, once you’ve enjoyed their new track make sure you check out their back catalogue and put an order in for their new EP ‘Evilution’ via the link. You can watch Illerstate – Is It a Problem on the YouTube player below.

The Visual Sand in the Glass video has been uploaded to YouTube and is currently making its rounds on the Internet and blogosphere. The Ambassador is a total of ten tracks featuring upcoming artists, and Cali features on Sand in the Glass.

This is the latest upload from Don’t Flop for the highly anticipated battle between Copywrite vs Tenchoo which was filmed during the Check Point 3 event in London.
Not much needs to be said to introduce both Copywrite and Tenchoo who are widely regarded as legends in the music and battle rap scene. Copywrite makes his debut battle as himself (check out the Shredder vs Raphael battle) and also his first battle in the UK in Don’t Flop. Tenchoo returns to the stage after a hiatus and a focus on music, for a battle which will remembered and appreciated by the original battle rap fanbase. General consensus is that Tenchoo won the battle fairly easily but it’s a great display from both artists. Copywrite vs Tenchoo will be a battle we remember for a long time.
A few years ago we had the pleasure of being involved with a UK remix of Copywrite’s “God Save the King (Proper English Version)” album which is still available to purchase. The remix album features guest appearances from the likes of Lamarrie Essquire, M9, Genesis Elijah, SAS, Beat Butcha, Endemic, Harry Love, 7th Dan, DJ Sarah Love and Context. Make sure you check out the Copywrite “God Save the King (Proper English Version)” on iTunes. Tenchoo has been working hard promoting the Panic Room 9 which is his latest project. The 8 track album was released on the 9th of May 2016 and was distributed via Starch Records. Make sure you check out both albums and support the artists by downloading the music.

Making his debut on Hip-Hop Kings is North London based artist Taharqa Satti with the video for his single “Transcendence”. Taharqa Satti – Transcendence offers something completely unique and has us excited about hearing music in the future.
It’s incredible to think that this is the start of Taharqa Satti’s journey, with fans urged to remember this is the first video in the public domain. We anticipate looking back at Transcendence in the forthcoming years and remembering that a bar has been set incredibly high for any follow-up work (which inevitably will reach our inbox soon).
If the video isn’t impressive enough, Taharqa Satti produced, mixed and wrote the track himself. Arturo Bandinelli directed the official video which I think you’ll agree did an amazing job, and credits to Ana Beatriz Meireles who also starred in the video. Further credits to “GevArt Films & Snatch Digital” for the production work on the video.
We are keen to share more from Taharqa Satti as it reaches our inbox, but in the meantime make sure you follow Satti on Twitter (@theYYstandout) for the latest music and news.
