It's that time once again y'all. Today marks the release of Show and Prove, the Mixtape: Vol. 3!
Major shouts to all of the Emcees, Producers and fellow DeeJays who provided the in-sane tracks for this months mix, without you there would be nothing but a 30 second intro (with no beat). And of course, mad love to Kevin Nottingham and HiPNOTT Records for backing the whole thing.
Listen to and/or download Show and Prove 3 absolutely FREE (see player below) So what are you waiting for? Download this mixtape now (Volumes. 1 & 2 available HERE) and if you want to be considered for the next one, email your track to me: firstname.lastname@example.org with Show and Prove Submission in the subject line.
Tune into The Platform every Friday evening at 10pm GMT | 5pm EST through any of these links: www.crankcave.com | radio.hipnottrecords.com | www.icrfm.co.uk
Had the honour of kicking it with the one and only Random AKA Mega Ran this week. Lemme tell you, this dude is prolly the nicest cat in Hip-Hop (but don't get it twisted) he owns the mic. Def get out there and support this dude, he defines real Hip-Hop and isn't getting even half the recognition he deserves.
Peep the interview (and a couple Mega Ran cuts for good measure) below, peace.
Managed to get an exclusive interview with HiPNOTT's leading lady this week, Miss Carolina Dirty. This girl has flow for days and rhymes for weeks. So good to see more ladies coming up in Hip-Hop, between Carolina Dirty, Dessa, Nitty Scott MC & Rapsody we are spoilt for choice when it comes to the female perspective on Hip-Hop.
Peep the interview below (with a couple C Dirty cuts for good measure) and be sure to cop her new LP 'StillAtIt' (it's free to own) from www.HiPNOTTrecords.com, peace.
