I love posting alternate / different music on the blog. Thunderclaps make their first appearance on Hip-Hop Kings with a fine display of audio and editing skills. Thunderclaps remake the Fat Joe – Lean Back track amongst other things, and integrate a number of different methods into their music. You can watch Thunderclaps – Bootstrap Volume One on the video player below.
Mystro is back once again with his brand new vidoe for Aquarius. Fans of the U.K Hip-Hop legend will be familiar with Aquarius which is featured on the recently-released F.D.T (Fuck Da Taxman) E.P, and is without a doubt one of the highlight tracks. Mystro has teamed up with DJ Gone for production and direction on the video, and considering the budget restraints (Mystro‘s fully independent) it’s a pretty good video. You can watch Mystro – Aquarius on the player below.
Sorry people. APRIL FOOLS! I wish I could get an exclusive interview with 50 Cent and Eminem. On related news, 50 Cent has just directed a video for Lloyd Banks for his single “On My Way”. We also heard news that Lloyd Banks‘ new album “The Hunger For More 2″ will be ready in the Summer 0f 2010.
Tony Yayo recently celebrated his 76th birthday recently. If you haven’t heard his single “Obama” it’s actually quite good. It appears that the phone call with 50 Cent was just another genius marketing ploy to raise the profile of both rappers and ultimately result in sales. Unfortunately Yayo doesn’t use his own Twitter page so nothing funny to report there.
And last but not least, Eminem will be back in the U.K this July for a number of major festivals including T In The Park, OpenAir and Oxegen. Relapse 2 is on it’s way (I hope it’s as good as the first) and obviously Eminem‘s Refill is available to fans for purchase now.
Following on from the very famous quote by Wu-Tang Clan member ODB, “Wu Tang are for the kids”, the new Wu-Tang Massacre album has been given the same label to remind fans of one of the most loved Hip-Hop artists to grace a microphone. A quick promotional video has been used by DefJam to continue the push for sales for the album. You can view the new video from Wu Tang Clan – Wu Massacre Is For The Kids by clicking the link below.
Another debut on Hip-Hop Kings is Phar-City with his brand new single Part Time Lover. Phar-City has teamed up with Range from Roc Nation for Part Time Lover and can also be seen in the video. The track is taken from “The Talk Of CT 4 : Young, Fresh, Fly” which has been hosted by the famous DJ Whoo Kid and DJ Dolla Sign. The video for Part Time Lover will provide great promotion for Phar-City and Range. You can watch the new video from Phar-City and Range – Part Time Lover on the player below.
The Hip-Hop world is absolutely excited to hear that Doc Ish will be releasing his new album “The First Treatment” when I previously hosted the press release on the blog. Doc Ish returns with Apollo Swyff and Burroughs for the second official leak from the album titled “No Goodbyes”. Cut My Throat was the first official leak from the album which featured an A-star guest list. You can listen to Doc Ish x Apollo Swyff x Burroughs – No Goodbyes on the player below.
As Hip-Hop Kings previously reported, Eternia will be working with MoSS for their new upcoming album “At Last”. The official release date is 15th June 2010, and confirmed guest appearances include Joell Ortiz, Ras Kass, Termanology, Jean Grae and many more. I expect to see and hear plenty of other promotional material leading up to the release of “At Last”. I’ll have official leaks and artwork from Eternia and MoSS for “At Last” when it becomes available.

This is what we call in the U.K a “banger”. DJ Skitz and Rodney P have been around the U.K Hip-Hop scene for a long time, and Skitz has recently released a track with Buggsy called “Born Inna System”. I now have another track sent from Sticksman which is the new album from DJ Skitz called “Struggla”. To raise the excitement, Skitz has called upon Kardinal Offishall who blew up with his Akon featured track, and Skibbadee who is also no stranger to the mainstream stage.
