Video: Nas & Damian Marley - Distant Relatives (Trailer)


This is the official trailer for Nas and Damian Marley’s highly anticipated album, Distant Relatives, which is released on May 25th according to Amazon. I am interested in seeing what these two iconic artists produce in terms of an album, but if "As We Enter" is anything to go by then the album will be well worth purchasing.

Previously: Usher featuring Nicki Minaj - Little Freak (Video)

Audio: Nicki Minaj - Massive Attack


This is the first single from Young Money signee and self confessed Barbie-Nicki Minaj, produced by Sean Garrett & Alex Da Kid. The video premiers on Wednesday, so had back to site so you can watch it.

Previously: Usher featuring Nicki Minaj - Little Freak (Video)

Audio: Diddy-Dirty Money feat. T.I. - Hello Good Morning


New Diddy featuring T.I., taken from Diddys new album, Last Train to Paris. If the last single from the album, Angels, is anything to go by then this should be an album worth purchasing. The album is due to be released in the U.S. on June 22nd, there's no word of a UK release date yet, but expect it to be available around the same time in the UK. The best I could was this on play.com.

Audio: D Double E - Bassline Murder (Prod. By DJ Spooky)


New track from D Double E, produced by DJ Spooky, this track is BIG and does exactly what it says on the tin. The Newham Generals have been busy of late, with an EP coming out soon and a video to be shot soon for Footsies "Where's My Skrilla" on the Woo Riddim. So stay locked for more.

Audio: Wiley - MC Pon 141 (Produced by Maniac)


New Wiley produced by Maniac. I admit I've been enjoying this for a while, but I think that it's time that I shared it with you folks. One has to admire the way that Wiley weaves in and out of the Chipmunk sample.

Big up Logan Sama for the first plays of these tracks. Make sure you log onto his show on Kiss

Audio: Wiley & Roll Deep - Name Drop


New track from Wiley, stating the obvious. This tune is big, simples.

[BONUS] There's also a remix featuring fellow Roll Deep members Scratchy, Shifty, Wrigley & Breeze:

Mixtape: Baby Blue-Firefly


Today's been quite a busy day for new music and it doesn't stop here. 'Firefly' is the new mixtape from the newest A-List member Baby Blue fresh from her F64. The mixtape includes features from J2K, Bigz, Scorcher and was mixed by Show N Prove.

Read on for tracklist and download links:

Spotlight: Chip Tha Ripper

I know that many of you may not be familiar with Chip Tha Ripper but take it from me-he's an artist worth listening to. Take "Feel Good" for example, a laid back, feel good track-the perfect companion for the sun that we've been enjoying in London as of late.

Mixtape: DJ Neil Armstrong – The DNA Of The Blueprint

Having all of legendary DJ Neil Armstrongs mixtapes, having enjoyed Jay-Z's Blueprint series (#1 is my fave) having seen the two live on stage together I was glad to see Neil release this new mix. Not least because Neil is not a DJ that releases mixtapes regularly, but when he does release one it's worth taking note of.

This is not ANY Jay-Z mixtape featuring Neil Armstrong blends, original samples, soundbites and of course all of your favourite Jay-Z songs from the Blueprint album series. Well worth listening to plus it's FREE-download link below.

Woo Riddim (Produced by SX)


Ladies and gents I present to you the Woo Riddim, produced by SX. Props to Logan Sama who droppped a megamix of this track featuring Blacks, P-Money, Dot Rotten and Maxsta on Mondays show.

This has to be one of the biggest grime beats at the moment. Can't pick my favourite, so find a selection of the different vocals for this riddim below.
