Here is the brand new interview and freestyle from Leeds, West Yorkshire and Verbal Contact frontman Matter. Hip-Hop Kings readers will probably be more familiar with Matter as a battle rapper in Don’t Flop, however musically we speak on the latest news surrounding Matter and Verbal Contact, along with his thoughts and plans for Don’t Flop. Matter also gives an exclusive freestyle to Hip-Hop Kings fans, and we see a cameo from U.K Hip-Hop legend Mystro too. Fans can download Matter‘s project “The Stitch Up” as a free download from the link above, and you can watch the Matter freestyle and interview with Hip-Hop Kings on the video player below.

It’s not often we get such a massive lineup of U.K Hip-Hop artist in the North of England, however The Human Shield is proud to present a charity event for Palestine called “Real Talk”. Hip-Hop Kings and Global Faction will be attending to film the event, which will feature a number of U.K artists including Mic Righteous, M9, Rewd Adams, Cyclonious, Jimmy Jitsu and Nate amongst others. Please come and support to not only raise awareness for “The Samouni Family” which consists of 112 children with very little support since the bombardment of Gaza by Isreal.

It’s finally here, here is part one of the Louis Logic exclusive interview with Hip-Hop Kings.

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.
