Joker Starr

Raw Spitter – Joker Starr

“It’s based on a personality and a goal,” explains 21 year old Kebbie Conteh about the meaning behind his hip-hop moniker Joker Starr. “’Joker’ was given to me by my cousins when I was younger, and ‘star’ is what I want to be.” Having been rapping seriously for only three years, it is impressive what he has so far been able to achieve.

Soliheen

A Wise Child – Soliheen

Due to the modest financial returns it offers the majority of its artists, British hip-hop has had more than its fair share of casualties over the years. One example of this is the defunct collective Lords of Rap. After releasing a string of singles in the early 1990s with limited success, the London-based quartet decided to split up. Eight years on, the group’s main producer and rapper Def G now goes by the name of Soliheen and was the man responsible for producing two of the tracks on Ty’s well-received debut LP as well as crafting beats for new rhyme-slinger Joker Starr.

Bite It!

Bite It!

Bite It! was Trevor (Underdog) Jackson's hiphop label responsible for introducing us to the Brotherhood and Lewis Parker. Hasn't released anything for quite a few years as Trevor concentrates on his Output label, which is more of an electronic thing.
