RIFF RAFF – HOLOGRAM PANDA
For the Past few Months I have been going on & on about Jody high roller. If you haven’t heard of Riff Raff, you must have been living under a rock for the past few months. He is the most Viral Rappers ever ! Listen to “Chop another rock” it always gets me in an upbeat mood.
2013 is the year of Riff Raff.

Spooky – Playground EP
Spooky is back again with another banger ! “Playground” was one of my Favourite Grime Instrumental’s of 2012 featuring the sample of “Beenie man – who am I“. Plus the Slew dem vocal was my favourite Grime track of the year. The reason why I’m saying you should buy this in 2013 because it was released in late December and I never had a chance to review it. It has a Summer carnival Grime vibe, which is the easiest way to explain it.
This will defiantly go down well at a House party.
Purchase from : Amazon, Itunes, No hats no hoods (Vinyl).

Tempa T – All Star Pars
I have been waiting for this Mixtape to drop, for about 4 years ! It has all of Tempa T’s classics Including : “New day”, “Boi off da ting”, “RBX” & “Chatting shit” but it sadly doesn’t have “Watch the Skank”.
It is a mandatory purchase for any Grime fan or any music fan in General.
I highly recommend this Mixtape.

Skepta – Blacklisted
The king of Grime is back with a digital release album.
My favourite track of “Black listed” is “Castles” with the Riff Raff sample.

A$AP ROCKY – LONG.LIVE.A$AP
A$AP ROCKY was the most hottest Artist of 2012 & I’m pretty sure he will still retain the tittle in 2013.
A$AP’s debut Mixtape was Named “Live Love A$AP” & his debut album is Entitled : Long. Live. A$AP. You would say sarcastically “That’s creative isn’t it ? ” but I do think it’s quite creative, The title shows how he has progressed. it’s a very “Rapper album title” if you get what I’m saying but I’ll let you argue over yourselves about his Discography titles.
There are so many other amazing rappers that deserve to shine but the British media think he is the only new good rapper that exists. it’s quite narrow-minded and straight up stupid, I can’t take it away from him that he is a good rapper, because he is.
A$AP makes good music, furthermore has a great image & loyal following. But there are a lot of band wagon hoppers, which looses the appeal for me. That’s what it’s like with the British media when they find rappers they hold onto them and shine the Lime light on the individual or group and ignore everyone else (Another prime example is OFWGKTA).
My 3 favourite songs From the album tracks are : “Fuckin Problems” Featuring : Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar. “1 Train” Featuring : Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T. Last but not least,”Fashion Killa” with the chorus sounding like “Herpes to go”.
I remember reading an article saying there hasn’t been a rapper that has made it and came from New york since the 90’s & A$AP is the “savior”. I can name a few JAY Z, 50 cent, Cam’ron. I’m not that knowledgable about Hip Hop but I can say it is a Good Album and sounds vastly different from his New York predecessors.
2013 is going to be a great year for music & its been a great start already.
