Lifetime is the second video from the upcoming album B.A.D.A. by London based MC Cons aka Conspicuous. Featuring the soulful harmonies of Cal-I Jonel and the warm production from Len. A smooth production with an evocative sample and bassline. Cons drops easily delivered raps which explore difficult and failed relationships.
London based MC Cons aka Conspicuous is back with his first track off his forthcoming fifth LP "B.A.D.A". Mobb Flix is produced by long time beat collaborator Apollo for Head Nodd Productions. The track is a homage to gangster movies like Goodfellas and Scarface.
June Bug is the third solo LP from East London emcee / producer and one fourth of The Colony - Cons... also known as Conspicuous. Cons has returned with a 12 track LP to follow up 2007's highly acclaimed The Family Photo Album. This time opting to hand over all production credits to some UK heavyweight beatmakers such as A H Fly, Apollo, Evil Ed, Apatight, S.Chu, M-Dot, Shears and S-Type, Cons has continued the soulful theme that has been the foundation of his previous work.
If it's beats you're looking for then look no further than Evil Ed's 'Edstrumentals Vol. 1'. It's 20 tracks of Evil Ed's best known instrumentals used by Yungun ('The Art of Celebration' and 'Nico Suave'), Task Force ('The Tournament'), Tommy Evans ('Alright/OK'), The Colony ('Back Up'), Asaviour ('Field Of Dreams') Conspicuous & Shameless ('Write A Song For Me'), Ricochet aka Ric Branson ('A New Way of Thinking' & 'No Pressure') and Jehst ('Alien').
At 15 tracks deep, coming in at just over 50 minutes, ‘The Get Together’ is no hard slog. I’ve already listened to it a few times today and am beginning again; it doesn’t get boring despite the outwardly conventional Hip Hop template.
Do not sleep on this release. One of a few compilation / mix CDs around this moment, this one won’t disappoint. Featuring tracks from artists who have performed at Ipswich’s only Hip Hop night Rapsploitation Sessions it’s clear that Truth and Jimmy Green have good taste in music.
‘A New Bloodline’; Sir Smurf Lil’ teams up with the current cream of UK producers - Jehst, Apa-Tight, Beat Butcha, LG, Conspicuous and Asaviour - all men well known for their dusty Hip Hop beats. Don’t take that the wrong way though; on paper ‘A New Bloodline’ may seem like a quick tracing of the UK rap outline but in reality the uniquely stylised rendering of Smurf makes this more than just a carbon copy.
MIC:CTRL is an excellent showcase of the talent that the UK has. Hip-Hop in the UK doesn't get that much coverage due to the US who kinda phase us out a lil bit, but with MIC:CTRL they'll have to take notice. Every artist on there raps from their own experience and puts their all into every single track. This shows.
UKHH.com is back with MIC: CTRL a second compilation of home grown British rap. Created to give new, existing, and completely unknown artists a platform to promote dope music MIC: CTRL highlights the next generation of UK emcees making noise for 2008 and beyond.
