The UK’s number one mixtape DJ is back once again. Hot on the heels of Tricksta’s last ‘UK only’ mixtape ‘The Urban Shop Mix’, comes Part Two to the success ‘National Anthems Mixtape’ that he dropped last summer. Once again it features the cream of the crop including some unreleased material by the likes of Akala, Conman, Late, Reveal, Baby Blue, Big Wayne, Swift It Major, Mr. Ti2bs and Size8 from Vicious Circle, as well as contributions from the likes of Sway, Klashnekoff, MD7, Mike GLC, Kyza, Lowkey, Alex Blood and Def1.
‘One of the best British emcee’s to date’ is the words HHC Magazine chose to describe rapper, singer, songwriter and producer 10Shott. Since he debuted all those years ago with the now classic ‘Bagged Out’ album with his crew Vicious Circle, 10Shott has really put himself on the UK Rap map with support on Kiss FM, HHB Radio, BBC 1Xtra, Galaxy FM and Conspiracy Radio.
Wolverhampton record label WOLFTOWN RECORDINGS has been pumping out quality music since 1999. Now Wolftown Recordings unleashes the first of a string of CD releases by VICIOUS CIRCLE’s ‘10SHOTT’. It’s time to step to take a journey on the Ghetto Brick Road with one of the UK’s tightest and most talented emcees. 10SHOTT began rapping in the mid-nineties and signed to Wolftown Recordings back in 1997.
On this website Late and his villanous cohorts have have in the past received a fair amount of coverage. This is because they are hard working fellows and this is doubly demonstrated by their regular releases of new material, but also their regular mix CDs such Tricksta's UK Running series and this one.
Some UK rap fans out there feel uncomfortable when references are made to street life, crime and drugs in UK hip hop music. Which is strange when you think about it. Because crime is rife in many estates in the UK, looming over young lives daily with hands holding juicy fruits of temptation. Young rappers such as 10 Shott & Size 8 feed off what they see around them as a base to launch their rhymes from.
