Kung Fu was a regular Hip Hop night held in Camden which grew to become very popular and was a showcase for London and UK Hip Hop talent.
Northampton based rapper and producer Lifescarz M.I.C Terror is a name you need to get used to and has already been tipped as one of the main UK artists you need to look out for in 2012. His new mixtape "Rise Of The General" is hosted by Tricksta from the legendary UK Runnings mixtape series and features some killer features from the likes of Farma G from Taskforce, Malik from Moorish Delta 7, Ill Murk, Caesar, Council Kids and many more and well as some tough production from Gemini Beat Exporterz and Lifescarz himself.
Supar Novar is back with his brand new mixtape Here I Am mixed by Show N Prove. This future UK classic showcases some of Supar Novar's best work to date and features collobarations with the likes of Dappy, MCD, Danny Bones, Big Ben, Ragz Sweet Jones, Terra Slim, Yaeo, Barry Knight, Mr 13, Big Frizzle and more, as well as some quality production from Dead Man Walkn, Farma G, Show N Prove, Supar Novar and more.
Its been a while since we last had one of Farma G's sponsored freestyle battles and this latest installment looks like it could be fire. There is a £150 prize for the winning MC and the artist line up is stellar in the extreme. Reading like one of the best nights line ups that Kung Fu put on this night is set to continue in that vein. Make sure you get down to the Villain Bar on the 13th October to see it all go down.

This is the powerful opening track by Yaeo from the forthcoming Dee Jay TOMAHAWK presents YAEO mixalbum entitled '2000 & MYNE' which will be dropping soon. Undoubtedly this track will become known as the 'Farma. G cus track' and will probably be one of the biggest talking points in the UK hip hop scene this year.
