This month Whirlwind D traces the history of hip hop in Nottingham, UK. The show begins with the early B Boy scene and of course the iconic Rock City before moving into the early Notts rap records from the likes of MC Fizal Eff, DJ Quick, MSD, DJ Mink and KID to name a few.
'Cognoscenti' featuring Confucius MC, taken from 'Raw Pastiche', the album by Oblique Strategies (Mr Brown and Cappo). Cappo opens with his usual no nonsense verbals and hard hitting style of delivery. Surprisingly Cons steps up and follows in the same vein dropping just as much heat.
Hot producer TULIP88 drops his brand new single with visuals "Hidden Notes" featuring Cappo and Franky Bones. Its a kinda sparse beat, but allows Cappo to come devastatingly hard as usual. Franky Bones drops jazz lounge piano riffs which juxtapose against the rest of the track but fill out the vibe.
A veritable collection of UK stalwarts come together for this release. Cappo raps and Mr Brown produces. Bleach and Blue Flames is the latest track to be taken from the November released LP 'Raw Patsiche', the new album by Oblique Strategies.
Strange Neighbour (Revorg) team up with Mystro to drop a summer anthem. IMS (Starch) team up with Cappo for this dark gritty head nod banger.
