Here’s the deM atlaS Video for Perfect Day which has been uploaded to the Rhymesayers Entertainment YouTube page.
Hip-Hop Kings readers were introduced to deM atlaS back in November 2013 when we blogged the news about signing to Rhymesayers and the single Charlie Brown. Since then, we’ve seen a number of single, video and project releases including the most recent mF deM which is a collaboration with (guess who) MF DOOM. deM atlaS has had an array of previously un-released DOOM beats at his disposal and mF deM is the outcome.
deM atlaS Video for Perfect Day has been directed by Samiera Abou-Nasr with extra credits to JC Calubayan. deM atlaS also has a number of tour dates (listed below) across America so make sure you go see him in your closest city. You can also watch the new video from deM atlaS – Perfect Day below.

This is the brand new video from York based MC Deeviant, for his single “So What”. Deeviant – So What is a Hip-Hop Kings exclusive.
Deeviant has been constantly releasing music and has been featured on Hip-Hop Kings over the past few years. With more focus being put on Deeviant (including BBC Introducing), we’re expecting more music of a high standard coming soon. Deeviant – So What has been filmed and edited by Zack Wainwright (ZWM) and producer credits go to Platinum Sellers.
We have been told that Deeviant will be releasing “Heart of a Lion” and despite us not having an official release date, we expect this to be available toward the end of 2016. We will be sharing the official artwork and track listing as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime you can follow Deeviant on Twitter (@DeeviantOnline) and keep checking back at Hip-Hop Kings for more music coming soon. Please feel free to search for Deeviant in the archives and check out the previous tracks we’ve shared including the likes of “Angel in the Sky”, Y.O Season Pt 2, and The Graft Never Stops among others.

Teaming with Okayplayer, this is the Masta Ace New Video Story of Me which is the brand new video from the Hip-Hop veteran.
Guest appearances on the record come from Pearl Gates and Denez Prigent and takes us original Masta Ace fans back to his earlier work. Our friend Alex Ghassan has directed the video and also a shout out to Kic Beats who produced the track. When speaking about Story of Me, Masta Ace said,
“This video is a journey back to my roots as an artist and as a person. I return to Brownsville, the neighborhood where I was raised and Coney Island, the exact location of the photo shoot from my debut album (which I hadn’t returned to since the original shoot in 1990). Alex and his team did a tremendous job showing Brownsville and CI in a way they have never been seen before. The beauty of the shots and my spiritual connection to the locations make this arguably the best video I have ever released.”

Making his debut on Hip-Hop Kings is Izm White with the video for the single “Nod Ya Head”. There’s not many other ways to make a larger impact than collaborating with a legend, so we can share Izm White ft Prodigy – Nod Ya Head.

The 15-track album also features guest appearances from the likes of Sheek Louch, Ghostface, Prodigy and Big Twinz among others. Izm White ft Prodigy – Nod Ya Head is one of the many examples on the album which stays loyal to true-school Hip-Hop. I’ve posted the official artwork and tracklisting for Wildfire below, and make sure you check out the stream on Izm White’s soundcloud page.

The album is available to pre-order and is available to download from the 9th of September 2016. Dabbla has given Hip-Hop Kings 25 exclusive tracks about Year of the Monkey which is definitely worth a read!
