Tag: Foreign Beggars
It’s fair to say that Foreign Beggars have taken a successful transition from their founding Hip-Hop style to a more commercially appealing and wider-genred style they are famous for today. The likes of Metropolis, Orifice Vulgatron, Dag Nabbit and DJ NoNames have also broken the American market – an accomplishment many U.K based artists only dream of. I’ve been given an opporunity to showcase a latest soundcloud mix from Foreign Beggars which features music from SonnyJim, London Zoo and Dr Syntax. You can check the Foreign Beggars – Hip-Hop Glade Mix on the mixcloud player below.
Multi-genre U.K music legends Foreign Beggars have recently announced a new U.K/U.S tour stating in November in San Diego and finishing in December in Brighton. With a list of 30 dates spread throughout the course of three months, Foreign Beggars will be putting in work which saw them propell to the forefront of the music world with their recent single “Badman Riddim”. Foreign Beggars have also been nominated for a UMA award for the single Badman Riddim for categories “Best Collaboration” and “Best Single”. You can view the official Foreign Beggars website for a full list of tour information on the link above, along with watching the incredible Badman Riddim on the video player below.
If I’ve ever seen a creative / disturbing video in my life, this probably equals it. U.K Hip-Hop outfit Foreign Beggars have teamed up with The Disablists for their collaborative single “Heavy Rotation”. The single is also available from iTunes, however the official video is certaintly worth watching. You can watch the new video for The Disablists x Foreign Beggars – Heavy Rotation on the player below.
Last year I spent a lot of time talking about the Foreign Beggars album “United Colours of Beggattron” for good reason, it was my favourite U.K Hip-Hop album of 2009. Never Say Die Records have produced what can only be described as a fantastic remix of a personal favourite track of mine “Get A Bit More”. Directed by D Zennie, the No Holds Barred remix is now officially available on vinyl and digital download. You can watch the Foreign Beggars – Get A Bit More Remix on the video player below.
HHK: Thanks again for agreeing to speak to us. The album “United Colours of Beggattron” is now available to fans worldwide. How long did it take to complete the project from the start, and individually what were your favourite tracks?
Metropolis: We started recording the album not long after finishing ‘Stray point agenda’. We’d just moved into our first ‘proper’ studio, so we were eager to get to working on something new. Some of the tracks date back to late 2006!
NoNames: Lately ‘Move Higher’ is the track from the album I probably listen to the the most – Ghosttown KILLED the production on that one. Infact they smashed it with every beat on the album.
Orifice: Dunno, got a couple still would have to say “No More”, “Higher”, “Don’t Dhoow It” and “No Holds Barred” are up there.
We were contacted by the good people doing the Foreign Beggars promotion, as the guys have recently finished a photoshoot which directly relates to the name of their album “United Colours of Beggattron”. The promotion continues for the album, as Vulgatron, Metropolis, DagNabbit and NoNames plan to release their new single “Seven Figure Swagger” with “Don’t Dhoow It” as the b-side on the 23rd November.

Following the release of the Foreign Beggars album “United Colours of Beggattron” the Foreign Beggars have teamed up with Detroit-based Guilty Simpson for the collaboration of “Prove It”.

The Foreign Beggars album “United Colours of Beggattron” can be purchased from Amazon on the link below for just $6.99. You can also listen to Foreign Beggars and Guilty Simpson – Prove it, on the player below.
Don’t call it a come back, they’ve been here for years. The famous LL Cool J quote would be quite fitting when speaking about U.K Hip-Hop band Foreign Beggars. For those familiar with the music, the blend of beatboxing, turntablism, rapping and producing have made the Foreign Beggars one of the most popular, and recognised Hip-Hop groups in the U.K. Not only have they extended their discography with the release of “United Colours of Beggattron”, they’ve reached out to Europe, America and Asia in a bid to back their much-deserved fame.
United Colours of Beggattron is the fourth full-length studio album from the Foreign Beggars, and possibly one of their most well-produced, and commercially appealing releases to date. Hopefully this will be the most accomplished album the group have released too. With MC’s “Orifrice Vulgatron” and “Metropolis” described as two of the most vicious lyricists in the circuit, you’re always expected to hear nothing but raw passion when you select any Foreign Beggars single. DagNabbit and DJ Nonames complete the group, which is an exciting line-up to say the very least.
The Foreign Beggars are still going strong with their promotion for the new album “United Colours of Beggattron” with the official music video for their single “Contact”. Foreign Beggars announced a U.K tour, and also agreed to run an exclusive Foreign beggars competition with Hip-Hop Kings. We will be covering any further promotion ahead of the release of “United Colours of Beggattron” along with an interview and live show footage.
