Hip hop music, also called hip-hop or rap music, is a music genre consisting of a stylized rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping, a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted. It developed as part of hip hop culture, a subculture defined by four key stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching, break dancing, and graffiti writing. Other elements include sampling (or synthesis), and beatboxing.

Video: Jam Baxter- Bulletproof (Prod. Chemo)

Video: Jam Baxter- Bulletproof (Prod. Chemo)

Taken from one of the latest releases on High Focus Records, 'Mansion 38',  Jam Baxter has dropped the video for single Bulletproof. 

Shot on location in Bangkok the setting is the real Mansion 38 where Baxter ended up to join forces with producer Chemo after something of a creative block. Chemo certainly puts a real stamp on the track with a chilled, down-tempo beat lead by a melancholy piano. Flowing lazily over this Jam Baxter ponders from his apartment room sadly reflecting "we might be crippling our organs, but you ain't gotta worry about us". It's a great pairing of producer and MC which results in a moody and reflective track. 

For more of both Jam Baxter and Chemo on Mansion 38 check out the rest of the album available on CD or vinyl from High Focus or listen on Spotify

Stream: Kyza Sayso - Miverione: Vol 2

The West London rapper, who came in the game alongside Klashenekoff and Terra Firma has been a consistently strong lyricist over the years, and made his mark on the game as a solo artist back in 2006 with 'The Experience. On this, his latest project Kyza has picked some strong beats to jump on and vocalize his energy and emotions with a sharp tongue and imaginative range of concepts!

He reflects on his time in the game and definitely gives us a good range of excuses to keep supporting the cause - that real hip hop sound with both  smooth and rough hooks. 

Stream the project below and don't forget to support the artistry by copping the ting too!

Video: Logic - Black SpiderMan ft. Damien Lemar Hudson

Here's the new single from Logic's upcoming album 'EVERYBODY'. which is all about individuality. Throughout the song, Logic is trying to tell people to embrace who they are and to be proud of it. His lyrics focus on, us as humans to be united with a sense of togetherness while saying nothing can separate us, regardless of race, sexuality, religion, creed or colour; because we are all human at the end of the day. 

Logic himself has said: "This song is the celebration of unity and a world built upon division". The music video showcases many different people from different races all dancing and singing together as one while the smooth, yet punchy beat and Logic's powerful lyricism play in the back accompanied by Damien's smooth vocals. Towards the middle of the song, it takes a very soulful approach with a Gospel choir joining Damien in his solo part. 

Pre-order the album 'EVERYBODY', available May 5th: http://smarturl.it/EverybodyDeluxe?iq...

Video: Danny Brown - Ain't it Funny

Danny Brown keeps his music bizarre and nutty as ever, whilst keeping the artistic levels high! With the video directed by Hollywood Star Jonah Hill, this new one from the Detroit rapper ‘Ain't It Funny’ is taken from the new album ‘Atrocity Exhibition’, out now via Warp Records.

In the visual which is described as 'wildly disturbing and uncomfortably funny', the eccentric Warp Record signed artist places himself in the centre of a stereotypically American family sitcom, with explosive results!

ThisisDA- Control, Shift (prod. Jakuta)

ThisisDA- Control, Shift (prod. Jakuta)

After gaining the support of Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart and even sharing a stage with hip hop legend Grandmaster Flash it's certainly been a busy couple of years for rising mc and producer ThisisDA. This time he's back with support from producer Jakuta for new single Control, Shift. Opening with a warm vinyl crackle the track has a real analogue vibe complete with jazzy, acoustic samples demonstrating ThisisDA's trademark genre blurring.

Lyrically ThisisDA takes an introspective turn giving an emotional delivery layered up with a range of soulful backing vocals from the track's other guests, Fenne Lily and Gaidaa, to merge seamlessly into the production.

The track also notably features Luke Eira, a busker discovered by ThisisDA, providing the clarinet samples further building up the musical layers as well as the stories behind it. With such an approach to making music it will be interesting to see where ThisisDA heads next.
