Big J is promoting hard with a number of great singles and videos ahead of a busy 2010. Big J has released his new video “Bars Hold Weight Volume One”. Following the highly successful “A Days Work” and “Bust Yo Head” which was produced by Avalanche, Big J makes the double-meaning title a perfect opportunity to show his lyricism. Rapping from behind bars, Big J gives fans a glimpse of what to expect on the forthcoming records. You can watch the Big J – Bars Hold Weight Volume One video below.
After weeks of anticipation I finally have the brand new video from Skandal, Black The Ripper and Little Dee for their very popular single “Kill Em Wit The Flow”.

Skandal has recently began promotion of his new “Hunger Pains” project which is anticipated as one of the biggest U.K Hip-Hop releases of the year.

HHK: Thanks for speaking with us Juttla. The big news that a forthcoming collaborative E.P called “The Forbidden Temple” is close to release. How did the initial discussion start?
Juttla: Hi Ryan, first off thanks for having me! LOL! I released my last album ‘At War With Satan’ in the autumn of 2008. It was a Dubstep album and the response was really good. After working closely with Wolftown Recordings for the past ten years on various projects, myself and Tricksta talked about the possibility of doing a project that would see me collaborate with their latest signing who was Manny Moscow. I had been a fan of Moscow’s from hearing the UK Runnings mixtapes that Tricksta was doing with him and I really felt his flow, delivery, vibe and skills on the mic! Tricksta approached Manny with the idea of doing a track and then it escalated into a five track EP.
Thad Reid is becoming a fan favourite on Hip-Hop Kings and I have his brand new single titled We Wont Stop. Thad Reid has announced news he will be releasing his new album Target Practice on the 20th April 2010, and the project will be supported by DJ Booth and DJ Mickey Knox. We Wont Stop will be the start of the campaign, and I expect to hear more with the release in the works. You can listen to Thad Reid – We Wont Stop on the player below.
Twenty two year old Lyric is a Georgia based Hip-Hop artist who is making his debut on Hip-Hop Kings. The previously released album 813 was his debut album and set the way for Lyric to develop as an artist. With influences ranging from the likes of Eminem and Lupe Fiasco, Lyric‘s style is underground yet commercially appealing. The new single Here 4 U is the start of an exciting promotional campaign for Lyric, and we expect to hear plenty more in the forthcoming future. You can listen to Lyric – Here 4 U on the player below.
Hip-Hop legend TQ has released a brand new album titled Kind On Blue which is available to fans immediately. The news shocked me as I received no prior notification about the release, however fans should definitely check out TQ‘s new music, and will have the chance to see him live during “The Blue Tour”. TQ has hooked up with Glasses Malone, Ying Yang Twins and Mikkey Halsted for the album, and a range of guest producers help complete the line-up. You can view the official artwork for TQ – Kind Of Blue below.
