CMPND - Paraphrase (Feat. Verbz)

A hot new record from High Focus' latest signings CMPND, who call upon the fierce Verbz for a killer feature. The diversity that comes from the High Focus camp is second-to-none and releases like this are an example of how they are well and truly keeping UK Hip-Hop alive, fresh and moving forward. Big tune.

Ocean Wisdom - 4AM (Official Video)

Sick new video for the latest single from Ocean Wisdom, who is without doubt one of the most exciting MCs to make moves over the past couple of years. His album 'Wizville' was one of the standout releases of 2018 and this continues to solidify as one of the most dangerous behind the mic - hopefully, this guy is destined for huge worldwide success.

Charlie Trees - Writing

A brand new record from upcoming UK rapper Charlie Trees, which with its laidback jazzy instrumental and Charlie's slick bars / flow, makes for a unique and fresh sound. I've always been a huge supporter of underground UK hip-hop and this ticks every box for me. Can't wait to hear more. Stream here.

88-Keys - That's Life (Feat. Mac Miller & Sia)

88-Keys dropped this beautiful record last week, which features Sia and a posthumous appearance from the sorely missed Mac Miller. The sentiment of the record and the artwork are both very powerful - life is a funny old thing. Thank you for the music, Mac.

Common - HER Love (Feat. Daniel Caesar & Dwele)

One of the greatest MCs of all-time returns with an incredible new record, which features two of the finest male R&B vocalists out there. As one of the YouTube comments quite rightly says, 'I love how Common still remains himself after all these years. Being a down to earth, positive, creative individual who continues to show love to his generation and the new generation."

One of my favourite records of 2019, hands down. Stormzy, MJ Cole and Jimmy Napes have gone clear with this.

Mikill Pane - The Night Elm on Mare Street 

North-London rapper Mikill Pane returns with a lyrical masterpiece in the form of 'The Night Elm on Mare Street'. A record that builds and progresses throughout, with unique production, clever worldplay and subtle samples... Great to have this guy back behind the mic, one of the best lyricists in the UK.

Logic - Homicide (Feat. Eminem)

Featuring a hilarious feature from comedian Chris D'elia, here's the new ferocious new single from Logic and Eminem. Having clocked up over 10 million streams across all platforms in less than two days, you can see why... Logic on top form and Em sounding killer, the best i've heard him for a while. Big record.
