Straight from the Ghetto - News on HipHop, pt.5

Rev Run, former member of the almighty Run DMC, comes up with his new 12" "Mind On Da Road" on Russel Simmons Music Group these days which brings together the dance vibe of oldskool HipHop-beats and energetic Metal guitar riffs. Yes, that's been done before, but still rawkks big time.

Not only HipHop today, but also a few bits of what can be called DigiSoul, R'n'B, Urban whatever...

17-year-old Teairra Mari is one of the new breed of Digisoul/R'n'B-queens associated with the Roc-a-Fella Records stable. Her debut album is to be released on november 18th but even before that date her upcoming 12" "No Daddy" will be on heavy rotation from october 28th onwards. Cool voice plus ruff, minimalistic beats provided by Sean Garret makes this one one to look forward to.

Ms. Dynamite, known to many as the princess of UK Garage/2Step, has been off the circuit for about 2 years now due to pregnancy and a mother's duties, but now steps back with a double-A-sided 12" on Polydor UK named "Judgement Day / Father" which is a truly deep and soulful piece of music. Inviting ya gal for a candlelight dinner? Make sure this is running on your home stereo at the date of release which is october 7th.
