Jayger - Eyes Open 12" [YNR]

Jayger – Eyes Open 12″ [YNR]

There must be no better way to begin a new year than with a massive posse cut. Jehst’s YNR label kick 2009 off in fine style with Jyager’s ‘Eyes Open’. The re-spit version is like a platter of what’s hopefully to come from the label this year. With 8 MCs jostling to ride a heavy beat mainly consisting of a fog horn and a lorry reversing this should crash into the scene with much devastation when it’s released in February.

DJ IQ ft. Joker Starr – Pimp My Mix [Audio]

How cold is it outside right now? I am sure it is not as cold as the mix featuring Joker Starr amongst others titled Pimp My Mix, which is free might I add. An intelligent mix by DJ IQ aka May The Force Be With You aka DMC Champ 2003 for your listening enjoyment and pleasure. Its an eclectic mix for an ecletics fix for pimps, tricks and hoes who all got one thing in common, the love for the music.

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.

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.
