PREVIOUS | Soul Khan – King Ugly (Sofar New York)
Two of the four names in the title make their debut on Hip-Hop Kings today, Kirswords and Joe Swisher are complemented by the more familiar names of Soul Khan and J57 (Brown Bag AllStars) for the collaborative effort “Tri-State Mindstate”. Produced by J57, Tri-State Mindstate is promotion for the upcoming “The Gift and The Kirs” E.P coming in August 2015. Fans can download the single from the link listed above, and also listen to Kirswords ft Soul Khan and Joe Swisher – Tri-State Mindstate (prod J57) on the YouTube player below.
As we prepare for the upcoming free E.P from J57 titled “0057: FlaskLIFE” we have the second official single from the project titled “Heisenberg Blue”. As Breaking Bad fans may realise, the title is inspired by the popular TV series and J57 is quoted saying “I really felt it embodied all the emotions throughout the series and figured it was only right to name it something assosiated with it”. We’ll be posting more promotion ahead of the release of 0057: FlaskLIFE and feel free to check out the previous J57 works in the Hip-Hop Kings archives. You can view the official artwork and listen to J57 – Heisenberg Blue on the soundcloud player below.

These are the new sounds from LuvJones who has teamed up with J57, DonWill and Mike Maven for their collaborative single “In My Soul”. The Brooklyn-based group all individually showcase their skills over the LuvJones produced track, which is featured on LuvJones’ album “Mish Mash”. Look out for Neon Summer which will be available to fans from the 12th of August 2014. However, you can listen to LuvJones ft J57, DonWill and Mike Maven – In My Soul on the audio player below.
In devastating circumstances, Brown Bag AllStars member J57 received a request to produce a remix for Cage’s track “The Void”. I say devastating circumstances as his mentor and good friend “Ports” had passed away and J57 was notified literally minutes after the news of the passing that he had one night to complete the remix. In a tribute to Ports, J57 did an excellent job on the remix which has finally been made available for listening to the public. You can listen to Cage – The Void (J57 Remix) on the soundcloud player below.

Our drinking and smoking buddies from across the Atlantic (Koncept and J57) teamed up with director Liam “Body” Bagnall during their most recent trip to the U.K to shoot the video for the single “Wings”. As HHK fans know, Wings is taken from the “Live On” E.P by Koncept, and Wings is one of my favourite tracks produced by Numonics.
