I’m delighted to provide another Hip-Hop Kings exclusive. Any U.K Hip-Hop fan will be aware of Mystro a.k.a Mystrogen. I managed to speak with Mystro during his time in Leeds (yes I know) during the Golden Mic 2010 show this weekend. Here is the Mystro Interview Part One of a twenty minute feature, in which Mystro is asked about the local rap scene, his recent E.P “F.D.T” and also his upcoming album Mystrogen. You can watch the Mystro Interview Part One with Hip-Hop Kings below.
There’s very few artists who you can confidently say deliver absolutely unique and uncomparable music.

You can view the artwork and the tracklisting for Sage Francis – Li(f)e below.

Following the previous release of the Save The Ras Kass trailer we now have the official episode one for Save The Ras Kass. The video promotion is in aid of Ras Kass‘ upcoming album ADIDAS which will be released later in 2010. Save The Ras Kass is a bid to save underground Hip-Hop, and true lyricism from the suger-coated music we hear on the radio. You can watch Ras Kass – Save The Ras Kass Episode One on the player below.
It’s that man again DJ Ames who is without a doubt the hardest working DJ in the U.K. This time I’m proud to present a mixtape with Yung Flash that has been hosted by Jack Russell Entertainment and International Hustle. The title of the mixtape is “News Flash” and the seventeen track release features guest production from a list of recognised and respected producers. You can view the artwork and download link for DJ Ames x Yung Flash – News Flash below.

I’d like to welcome Max Pain to Hip-Hop Kings with the debut single titled “Doing My Thing (Get It In). Releasing the track through Platoon Records, the single is featured on Max Pain’s solo project. The track has been featured on Revolt Radio as well as DMV’s DC Mubmo Sauce by DJ Heat. Max Pain is a DMV based lyricist and I fully expect to hear plenty more from him soon. You can listen to Max Pain – Doing My Thing (Get it In) on the player below.
Hip-Hop Kings previously covered an exciting new artist called Daniel Joseph with his new free mixtape called “Gone Fishin”. The response was great and the blogs showed support across the Internet in hosting the project. Daniel Joseph is back with a track called Exhibit D which has to be shared. Once again taken from the inspired Jay Electronica track, Daniel Joseph presents the track in a way only he can. You can listen to Daniel Joseph – Gone Fishin on the player below.
It’s fantastic hosting the Open Bar Series from WEB, who is still releasing one track a week in a collaborative effort with Kevin Nottingham. I’ve seen seven tracks uploaded previously, and this is time for week eight which is called What Do You Believe In. WEB continues to delight fans with witty wordplay and his effortless flow. You can listen to WEB – What Do You Believe In (week eight) on the player below.
Here is a brand new exclusive from Hip-Hop Kings as I interviewed Hip-Hop legends Souls of Mischief during their U.K tour. You’ll be aware that only a few days ago I reviewed the Rodney P and Skitz show in Leeds (my city), and Souls of Mischief also stopped by to perform. Souls of Mischief were asked about their new album Montezuma’s Revenge, their personal favourite tracks from the album, and my personal favourite Postal. Souls of Mischief were also asked about their classic album “93 Til Infinity” and their plans for the rest of 2010. You can watch the exclusive Souls of Mischief interview below.
Craig Bass is a VA based artist who I felt should be highlighted on Hip-Hop Kings for his track called “The Hip Hop Effect Intro” which has been featured on his new mixtape also titled “The Hip Hop Effect”. The mixtape has been sponsored by, guess who, thehiphopeffect.com, and was available to fans on February 19th 2010. If you like what you hear, simply Google Craig Bass and you’ll find download links to the mixtape everywhere. You can listen to Craig Bass – The Hip Hop Effect Intro on the player below.
After enjoying the success of his mixtape Sounds, Ca$hflow is back with a brand new single with Charlie Rockz called “Dollar and a Dream”. Features on 2DopeBoyz, Kevin Nottingham and of course Hip-Hop Kings have boosted Ca$hflow‘s online profile, and with Dollar and a Dream following shortly after, I expect the buzz to remain strong for Ca$hflow. You can listen to Ca$hflow x Charlie Rockz – Dollar and a Dream on the player below.
