Did not expect these guys to be back so soon. Stadium Studio's freestyle series is shaping up to be a nice outlet for skills. This time Poisonous Poets founding member, Don't Flop champion, battle rap veteran and all round punchline animal Tony D steps in and gives us something special!
Haka Beats is a producer from Ladbroke Grove in West London. He has recently dropped his Man On The Moon EP and has secured spots from some of the dopest in the UK game. In order to find out more, Nikhil Sharma caught up with him to find out about his background, his new EP and ask about who he wants to work with. Read on for more.
Insane Macbeth brings us his first collaboration with Reveal, once member of Poisonous Poets.
Without questioning it the first thing I asked when hearing The Strongest Endz, was how old is this track? I think the whole sound of this track reminds me of British Hip Hop from way back, good quality hip hop, some may disagree but it's reminiscent of these days for sure.
Reveal, the original Poisonous Poet, is now officially back! Hot on the trail of his two recent viral videos Neva Blink and West London, the self described "Gully Irani" releases Warning the first full music video from his forthcoming Seven Shades Solo EP. Reveal takes a break from the norm as he takes a very introspective look at himself and the events that have formed him.
The tracklist for DJ Gone's 'Sin City', out now on Kung Fu, kinda speaks for itself to any UKHH head. Featuring the cream of the scene and in the vein of Kung Fu's showcasing 'Sin City' is over an hour's worth of exclusive freestyles and tracks - it's basically a must for those fans who strive for more than an artist's album and single output. It's also pretty essential for anyone who just wants to bump quality Hip Hop for an hour.

Not content with Poisonous Poet fame, solo recognition with Citizen Smith Vol. 1 and The Document and BBC Radio and TV success, Mister Brown is planting Citizen Smith Vol.2 into the mix and paving the way for his brother and fellow PP fam Luc Skyz: next to put his stamp on the game.
Kelakovski is reppin’ the U.K. with some sharp, heavy beats tailored toward the indie end of the hip hop spectrum. The talented producer has worked with some of the more reputable and political MCs we have to offer such as Lowkey and Skrein (Foreign Beggars), but don’t assume he’s Russian from the moniker, “I came up with the name by combining my surname (Kelleher) with a classical musicians name (Tchaikovsky) & came up with Kelakovski!... and no... I'm not Russian!”…
