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.
Omas is the DJ for TNC as well as a producer in his own right. I first met this charming young chap when we were promoting our own hip hop nights in Manchester, way back in 2005. Anyway, this new joint is a free download, available from Blunted Astronaut Records, as a taster to get you in the mood for Omas’ 7″ release on their label later in the year. The killer drumbreak and the stupid-nice samples are crafted together in expert fashion and is a must download.
