[ALBUM] Problem Child - Confessions of a Normal Human Being

Yeah, we know it's not a north-east album, but occasionally we get sent something that really blows our mind.
This is one such album. Problem Child is a superstar team of Illaman, Dabbla, Dubbledge spitting crazy, humorous, clever bars over the deep, bassy beats of Sumgii. Really, this is the best thing we've heard from the UK in a LONG time. Go and buy it. It's only £7. You can't afford NOT to buy it. Available from the embedded player, or from iTunes, Boomkat or any other decent music outlet. And it's 100% independent.

[VIDEO] Aems- Break Me

New video from DnB and Dubstep artist Aems, this time returning with a thoughtful hiphop track featuring an epic sample from acoustic emo artist "City and Colour". The Video suits the track perfectly, with dark, and transient visuals, cold and lonely, yet strangely haunting. Well worth a look.

[VIDEO] Smoove Feat. Jehst, Micall Parknsun & DJ Jazz T - Fresh Pair

Fresh Pair - Smoove Feat. Jehst, Micall Parknsun & DJ Jazz T from Sole Heaven on Vimeo.

Local legend Smoove takes a break from his critic-killing soul duet with vocalist Turrell to deliver this excellent track featuring the alphabetical acrobatics of Jehst and Micall Parknsun. With an excellent video from Nick Light, and keys from Mike Porter, this is a must buy.

After a shambolic soundman ruins Chester's performance, he takes it to the parking lot to finish the show for all the fans. This is why Chester P is a legend in Hiphop. Trust me, it's as real as it gets...

[TRACK] Nity Gritz - Misfit

To Scotland now for this track I was linked recently. Nity has a great flow and decent lyrics. I just wish the recording could be better, but still, this deserves inclusion for the skill of the rapper. Worth a listen, and I will be listening to more from this guy as a result of hearing this track. Good stuff.

[TRACK] L&S - Runaway

Leddie and Smoggy cover Joe Budden's "Runaway". Great bars as usual from these two. Boro's finest.
