Category Archives: DOPE NEW FILMCLIPS
The freshest in Local & International filmclips, plus some rare classics stolen from the interwebs.
Here it is…the remix to the already classic “R.I.P” banger from DJ Supreme. Check it!
Just watch & listen to how it’s done! Kuntz say Hip Hop is dead! Well it’s the legends still doin’ it proper. BPM’s and lyrical warfare to tear apart ya despair!!
This ones for you Heata. Run Royal will commence back to it regular schedule when we fucking feel like it. Enjoy this powerful shit in between drinks.
Here it is…The massive new track from Brisbane’s KINGS KONEKTED. This is the 1st single from the forthcoming “Corrupted Citizens” LP. Nuff said!
The Great Dot X is never outshone by anyone but Shabaam and Thirstin Howl do their thing on this!
Here is the official LP trailer for Kings Konekted’s highly anticipated forthcoming LP entitled “Corrupted Citizens”, out thru the mighty Unkut Recordings. More info to come…but stick this in ya ear & eye holes until then! Deadly!!!
The legend Chill Rob is back with a new E.P entitled “Chilled Not Frozen” and here is the 1st single featuring R.A. in top notch form. Loving everything about this. The clip is a straight to camera piece, but when you have 2 M.C’s firing like this, keep it simple stupid. Straight up heat!!!!! Get at the release here…. http://www.nobodybuysrecords.bigcartel.com which by the way is a dope site with some crazy releases from Phill Most Chill, A.G. plus more…. Enjoy!
Producer Oddisee provides the bed for the artist formely known as Freddie Foxxx and the King Asiatic to spit blackout darts on.
E’ry day is MdotOdotPdot day around here… Mashout Monday, Warriors Wednesday, Fizzy Wo Fridays. We even do Bukka Bukka Blaow Sundays.
KA and Preservation drop another jewel exactly 1 month after the first for the upcoming release Days with Dr. Yen Lo. Some people can’t get into him but personally I’ve been a big fan of KA. Even though he’s got a laid back flow it’s mad aggressive and abrasive in it’s delivery at times with his back ups, which is dope. Minimalistic beats with selective tones create a sick backdrop for him..His handywork with the camera and the B&W edits give his work an additional depth in my opinion.
A true poet with originality in league of his own..
In the late 2000’s Bias B approached Heata regarding an idea to make a local documentary about the release of his Beeswax LP from 1998. Together with Discourse they formed a film crew and began interviewing people regarding the early years and development of Australian Hip Hop pre the 2000’s.
As more people were interviewed, the team started to realise that the project was bigger than just the story of one album. And so, the film took a different direction.This here is a Trailer cut from their interviews over time with original stock footage.
We feel that “98:Foundation” is a very important story to tell, not just for those who were around in the early days, but also for future generations to understand and respect the architects. This project has not been completed, with ideas waiting to be developed and funded towards a full length Doco feature. The trailer is just an example of what it could be with many more people yet to be interviewed and filmed.
With the assistance and hard work of people such as B Wiv (Daniel Cowan), Josh Davis & Trem One, the “98” trailer stands ready for future development. The burning question is….”would any one want to see this made into a full length Film?” So where to from here……
I’m pretty sure that when Ev and Al run out of ideas for video clips they simply take a camera down to the Venice Beach Boardwalk and film themselves doing not a whole lot, y’know, like just laying down and shit.
I somehow missed this late last year, taken from Diamond’s Diam Piece album. Evidence and Alchemist are without a doubt two of my favorite people making music right now… And you know Diamond D already been that!
On one of my eternal quests to stay inspired, one day i went looking for new rap music and happened upon Long Island’s Hus Kingpin and Rozewood. I don’t know a great deal about either but i have seen their music being championed over at Ego Trip and Nah Right in recent months. I remember emailing links of their stuff to a handful of my friends and the response was a reply of general indifference, “yeah that’s kinda cool, meh” keep it moving.
I think it’s time to start spreading the word on these two guys. Where the recent spate of Roc Marciano features have had me essentially looking straight past them, Hus and Rozewood are rekindling that feeling i used to get when listening to The UN or when i first heard Marci’s magnificent “Snow” and “War Games” long before Marcberg had everyone screaming “Al Pacino with a tan”s praises.
High Rises was the first joint i heard that really piqued my interest, reminding me a bit of that old B-1 aka B-One 12” that dropped on Rawkus, Empire Staters / Verbal Affairs.
Hus and Rozewood don’t slouch on their output either both having released numerous albums, mixtapes and iTunes singles over the course of the last few years. This clip is taken from their free 100$ Taper album of mid last year.
The most recent full length release came via Rozewood’s The Beautiful Type which dropped in December 2014. Produced entirely by Illatrate and featuring appearances from Hus Kingpin, Boog Brown and SmooVth.

If talent were gauged on youtube views then these two dudes should be getting 200,000 plus views per video but they’re not. In saying that though, i have noticed the underground starting to pay more attention to these more than deserving MC’s. A quick YouTube search will have you discovering the amazing quality of music Hus and Roze are putting out at an alarmingly efficient rate, with flows and cadences reminiscent of a hungry Roc Marci or even Planet Asia and a left of center lean that reminds me of Alchemist and Oh No’s Gangrene project. Head over to iTunes or Amazon and start supporting this grass roots hip hop movement today!
But before you do peep how Hus and Roze do their thing over a beat originally found on The Alchemist’s Rapper’s Best Friend vol. 3.

In true invasion day style I thought Id post something British as a long weekend jump off. Excuse my ignorance but I haven’t fucked with much UK hip-hop since low life records/ MFTC etc..Dudes have kept telling me to get up on The Four Owls and High Focus Records but alas, I’m pretty lazy when it comes to looking for new shit outside here and the US regulars, that is until Preemo laces up a banga. Dope clip too.
Please suggest some more of their shit in the comments.
