The day is here – The Bluntskins LP is finally with us. It’s not just one for the smokers amongst us, as it’s a dope hip hop record in its own right. The beats are laid down by none other than Pro P, and the microphone duties are shared between Cheech and Bill Sykes. The tracks range from bangers like ‘Roll Up’ and ‘Smoke Dat Piff’ to chilled joints, like ‘Mellow High’. Manchester is proving, once again, that when it comes to high quality UK hip hop this is the place producing it.
Manchester is not slowing down with the constant emergence of young MCs. The latest kid to make the break through is Chuckz, who I saw hold his own amongst Manchester’s finest MCs, at the Antwerp Mansion. Here Chuckz delivers the goods and lets you know where he’s from. Keep an eye out, we’re expecting big things from this kid.
