Deal Real Record Shop Returns to London
We’re delighted to announce that the iconic Deal Real shop will be returning to Carnaby 12 years after it first opened. The likes of Kanye West, John Legend, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco and other UKHH artists were involved at Deal Real at some point in their careers. The legendary open mic platform gave the at-the-time upcoming MC’s an opportunity to showcase their talent to industry heads and fans and was an important social networking point before the likes of Facebook and Twitter.
The 2015 pop-up launches on Record Store Day (18th April 2015) at 14 Newburgh Street, Carnaby. True to the roots, there will be a showcase of London’s undiscovered visuals artists, musicians and fashion designers. There will be a montage of British musicians who have graced Deal Real including Example, Professor Green, Doc Brown and Mr Hudson among others.
Visitors can expect one-off signings, performances and workshops. Full details can be seen on DealReal.Co.Uk

I was introduced to Imperial through his work with Kinetik on the recent collaboration project “Pencils not Pistols”. Imperial has recently released his remix to Kanye West – Diamonds from Sierra Leone. Imperial has done a hell of a job (considering the original remix with Jay-Z contains one of my favourite Jigga verses ever), and to complement Imperial further, he puts his very unique stamp on the remix. Check out Imperial’s work with Kinetik on Pencils not Pencils by clicking on the link above. However, you can listen to Imperial – Diamonds from Sierra Leone Remix on the audio player below.
Premiered this afternoon through Ellen, Kanye West releases the official video for his single “Bound 2″. Music fans around the world have been talking about the Bound 2 video for days, as rumours surfaced suggesting girlfriend Kim Kardashian was naked in the video which was one of many. Kanye West infamously interupted Taylor Swift when she won a VMA award for best video in 2009, so fans are expecting nothing but excellence this time around. Fans can download Kanye West’s latest album “Yeezus” from the link listed above. However, you can watch Kanye West – Bound 2 on the video player below.
As Braydz prepares to drop his upcoming mixtape “Holla @ Braydz“, we have the latest track called Braydz In Paris, which of course is a remix to the Jay-Z and Kanye West track “Ni**as in Paris”. We’ve already heard the track “Scorpion Sting” from Braydz which features Kyza, and an official remix is on the way featuring U.K heavyweight Cyrus Malachi. I fully expect to hear more music before the release of Holla @ Braydz, however you can listen to the new Braydz single – Braydz in Paris on the youtube player below.
Everybody knew it was coming. Here is Game’s freestyle over the Otis beat which he has titled Daytona 500. Here is Game rapping for twenty one minutes on 500 bars of the Otis track.

Following the release of Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s collaborative album “Watch The Throne” here is the official video for the single “Otis”. The highly successful Watch The Throne is expecting to sell record numbers within the first few weeks of its release, and the video for Otis is sure to aid the promotion of the album. You can download Jay Z and Kanye West – Watch the Throne from the link used above, however you can also watch Jay Z and Kanye West – Otis on the video player below.
The word is out that Kanye and Jay-Z are at odds with each other just days before the release of their highly anticipated “Watch the Throne” album.
Neither party has addressed rumors that they have been arguing, but insiders are revealing that “Jay-Z can’t deal with Kanye.”
“Jay is a stone cold businessman. He wants to recoup all of his money from Live Nation. But Kanye wants to upstage rock stars with a blowout show. He doesn’t care about costs. He has a lot less to gain from the shows.”
It seems the negotiations about the tour plans have torn the talented artists apart. Hopefully they can patch things up before hitting the road for their tour.
Props to Jamzone Media for the news.
The track, “The Joy” features Curtis Mayfield and is the third song to be heard from the duo’s album, the first was “H.A.M” and the second was Otis.

Rapper Consequence has released a video clip titled “The World is Watching 2: The Puppet Masters” and in the video the former G.O.O.D. Music member decides to take some jabs at Kanye West labelling him a tyrant.
“There are some who think they have this ability, and others who are robbed for it. But by who? The puppet masters,” reads the clip. “They are the ones who are put in place to ensure that any wizard on the horizon relinquish his power to the king. The only one who can stop the king and his court, is… the warrior. It’s been done before… And it will happen again. The world is watching.”
The video features various rappers including Kanye West, Don C, Rhymefest, Fonzworth Bentley, Drake, and Lupe Fiasco to name some. The clip is in anticipation for Consequence‘s “Movies On Demand 3″.
