Huddersfield, West Yorkshire MC Rob Bradley formerly known as Jack Flash drops a life story on Too Busy Listening To Hip Hop. Classic Hip Hop with intelligent lyrics and meaning too.
Lifted from Savvy's recently released Play To Win Vol.3 mixtape Jailbirds And Jailbait is a subversive throwback Hip Hop track. The humorous often dark wordplay and vivid story telling paint us a twisted picture of life up "norf". Its all set to a soundtrack of what we can only describe as Miss Marple meets Ghostface Killer.
The renownd MC Competition and party night End Of The Weak returns for heat 4 which takes place in the quirky Passing Clouds members club in Dalston. The night has a fantastic line up so make sure you attend. Artists performing on the night include: Blak Twang, 2000 Fast Women, The Stepsons, Granville Sessions, DJ Snuff and MC Honey Brown, Stig Of The Dump, Jack Flash, Virgo Villian, Baby Blu and Peaches.
UK Producer Wizard has just released his album at the end of January. This is actually the second production album that the Wizard has put together and its called 'That Work'. There is some power tracks, some dark and moody ones and some of the best use of a metal electric guitar I have heard in a while.
The next Disgracelands, Bradford's newest and bestest Hip Hop night, looks to be a good do. Jack Flash is headlining and beatboxers Megamouth and BallZee, Sinoptic Records main men ExP and JND and Jason Ellis are all also on the bill! It's only £3 in and the beer's pretty cheap too. Be there.
Here's my (un-edited) review of YNR's Feeding Time At The Zoo, originally written for and published in HHC Digital 002, it was their album of the month:
Jack Flash has a new single taken from his acclaimed album ‘The Union Jack Album’. If you already have the album, don’t write off the single release yet. The original version of ‘Four Minute Warning’ is joined by its instrumental and two remixes.
In 2006 End Of The Weak brought its MC Challenge to the UK.. Hosted in Brixton London at UK's own leading Hip Hop event [anyone want to dispute that?] Speakers Corner!! In the first UK season we took the challenge all the way to New York with Stig Of The Dump taking home the Championship title for the UK!
Blam! Jabba Tha Kut’s new double mix CD could be decribed with that one word. It’s terrific! Jabba has selected just under 20 of the best UK tunes and the same amount of US tunes and has mixed, cut and blended them together most expertly to create a pretty joyful listening experience.
Recently crowned End Of The Weak UK champion, Jack Flash is proof that anyone can reign an entire scene while remaining entirely in their own zone of original thinking and spitting. After hearing him on works by other major British hip hop stars, Jehst and DJ IQ. Flash dropped his own album - The Union Jack, this summer.
