New Music Video: Letter Back – K Koke

Alongside the release of his 6 track EP ‘FFF PRISON’, which went straight in to the iTunes Hip-Hop chart at number one, K KOKE has dropped a new music video entitled ‘Letter Back.’

His EP takes us through a riveting journey of his time in prison, through his lyrics each song is trickled with a strong sense of self-realisation not just musically, but also personally. It is such a well-articulated account of the frustrations he feels as a man wrongly accused and having to face hard time. This EP takes it up a notch and takes a hard look at life from an inmate’s perspective and the effect it has on his family.

The harsh and restricting life of an inmate is really explored in this music video. ‘Letter Back’, as the name suggests, is a letter from a frustrated father to his family while he is in prison and missing all the core moment that make a dad, a dad. This video really tugs at the emotional heartstrings as it brings to life the inability for a man to see his child grow up. With visuals by Kye Taliana, the video has almost clocked 100,000 views in the few days since its release.

Featuring UK favourites Maverick Sabre, Dappy, Big French and Angel across the EP, to date FFF Prison has taken the Rap scene by storm. Charlie Sloth awarded ‘Letter Back’ with a prestigious record of the week across Radio 1. Now with the release available across all outlets and performing at the top of its genre, it’s clear to see K KOKE still has a compelling influence on the UK Rap game.

New Music Video: Mistaken – Tino Kamal (ft. Dukus)

Proclaiming a resilient demeanour TINO KAMAL has been climbing through the ranks and he elevates to his highest level so far with his latest release ‘Mistaken’, featuring producer and artist Dukus.

Taken from his ADHD album release, Tino’s eclectic edge is an incarnation of trap and pop and his flow oozes with a melodic and rhythmic edge providing a versatile twist to the artist. His flair for merging different genres allows him to develop a sound that lies on the cusp of the mainstream and underground scene.

Hailing from West London, Tino has catapulted onto the radar of key industry heads including the likes of fashion photographer Nick Night OBE and Atlantic Record’s A&R Twin B. He launched into the scene with his single ‘London Baby’ and has since released bangers such as ‘Shooters’, ‘London Kings’, ‘Go’ as well as his project ‘Young Salvador’. He also appeared in Charlie Sloth’s infamous ‘Fire In The Street’ series back in 2014. In addition to his musical endeavours, he also delves into the world of fashion where he models and was featured in Wonderland’s Dolce AW14 campaign.

Music has been the catalyst for his creativity and it has provided the gateway to allow him to freely vent and express his thoughts. Not only does it provide him with the canvas to showcase his vision but it allows him to have a sense of freedom, something he is not only grateful for but respects too, following a stint in prison that saw him face the prospect of life imprisonment due to a case of ‘Mistaken’ identity.

“Freedom is everything to me, creatively, all that s***. ‘Mistaken’ is just my black & white way of telling you where I’ve come from as of lately and how I was feeling at that moment in time. Being locked up in a cage for 23hrs a day for 20+ yrs isn’t a life I planned on seeing but I guess I gotta thank those four walls for the time spent within them because my music’s powerful!” – Tino Kamal

New Music Video: Teen No More – Sub Blue

SUB BLUE, shares another slice of his life with ‘Teen No More’, produced by acclaimed US producers A.V and Sir Dylan

‘Teen No More’ features minimalist electronic R&B production topped with emotive vocals by the young  Alt-R&B prospect, as he explores the issues of growing into early ‘adulthood’ and everything that brings with it.

Speaking of his latest release, SUB BLUE said: “I wrote ‘Teen No More’ about the fear of growing up and having to accept full responsibility for everything we do. [As teens] We often live our life not really thinking or knowing what can happen next but we have the confidence to know we are going to make things happen. That’s the kind of theme here”

Taking his name from his self-described style of music, “suburban blues”, Sub Blue offers a fresh take on chilled out, alternative introspective R&B. The visuals for his past effort, ‘Hype Like Supreme.’ was named Music Video of the Month back in January by NEW LEASE MUSIC.
