Crank's recent radio marathon on ICR 105.7fm made the local newspapers in Ipswich. Click HERE to read the full story online.
Crank completed a total of 2 days, 10 hours and 3 minutes of non-stop broadcasting, generating nearly £700 for Ipswich Community Radio, paying the studio's rent costs for 2 months! ICR is still taking donations, so if you want to give money in honor of Crank's marathon, you can do so HERE.
Had a chance to link up with leader of the Gold Tips gang, my dude Playdough. He's currently gearing up for the release of his new LP "1985 Party Time Excellent" with longtime friend and DJ, Sean Patrick.
We talk about said LP and Playdough's "Get Down With the Gang" campaign.
Peep the interview below along with a World Exclusive track from 1985 (Pre-order HERE) that dropped during the Fresh Cuts Hour of tonight's The Platform (which you can spin HERE).
Sat down with the Dreadlock Monster, one third of The Perceptionists, my dude Akrobatik for a quick interview this week. I caught up with him during the London leg of his EST Eastern Standard Time tour with fellow Bostonians Reks, Edo G & Termanology. We talk little about everything from teaching to comic books to his new LP Built To Last (purchase HERE).
Peep the interview below and find out which cut Ak holds in highest regard on Built to Last.
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.
