New Track: Billie Jean – Kid Tana

If you’ve been keeping a close eye on fresh talent via GRM Daily and Link Up TV then KID TANA will certainly not passed you by. Making his debut just six months ago with the hard bodied track ‘Buju Banton’ he then dropped a visual for his Gear 1 freestyle. Now he returns with his banging second joint ‘Billie Jean’!

Taking on the title of the MJ classic, KID TANA hits complicated rap patterns whilst harmonising his colourful writing. Beginning to see a trend in his music, Tana applies several musical influences into one coherent vision that draws on dancehall, trap and afrobeat and hears him flit from the guttural to the sing-along in smooth transition.

‘Billie Jean’ is now available on all streaming and downloads sites…for now, check out the video for the track below…

EP Review: Poets Of The Dark Scrolls – Redd Tunes

After claiming the blog’s Album of the Month title with previous EP, ‘The Sickness’, REDDTUNE bounces right back with his latest set, ‘Poets Of The Dark Scrolls.’

Featuring yet another stellar lineup, ‘Poets Of The Dark Scrolls’ continues to delve into keeping Britcore alive, by bringing on the laid-back boom-bap vibe…and a few extras thrown in, which includes a boisterous, reggae-fused introduction, a guitar-drenched production plus a straight-up urban forceful drive that ends the set on a high.

Although REDDTUNE remains loyal to his beloved subgenre of hip-hop, ‘Poet Of The Dark Scrolls’ sees London producer/rapper and his army of collaborators go at the deep end and really experiment with various genres that could potentially appeal to a wider audience.

New Track: Creator Made An Animal – Snotty Nose Rez Kids (ft. Boslen)

Featuring rapper Boslen, SNOTTY NOSE REZ KIDS‘ latest joint, ‘Creator Made An Animal’, carries an aggressive and assertive energy that imitates the way society portrays Indigenous people and people of colour across Turtle Island.

As a latest edition of the Indigenous ancestry, the Canadian hip-hop duo stated they are often regarded as the pissed-off generation who haven’t gotten over what colonisation has done to their lands and people.

Through their boisterous yet slick delivery, they’re letting the world know that they are here to stay and they are NOT changing for anyone!  Their latest track serves as a teaser for their album, ‘TRAPLINE’, set for release next month.
