Roc Marciano has been a dope emcee for sometime now dropping dope vereses over some nice beats especially the Pete Rock one. Well now he has managed to snag a dope Madlib beat for his upcoming mixtape The Pimpire Strikes back.

As a teenager I spent many days skating at the Southbank; making friends, learning tricks, injuring myself and taking part in the wider community that skateboarding introduced me to.
My hope was that when my son was old enough he too would be able to do this. Unfortunately the short sighted owners of the Southbank plane to tear it up and replace it with commercial units and relocate the skating area to the under Hungerford bridge 120 metres further down the Thame. However what they continually fail to understand is that the Southbank is an organic evolution created by skaters that has been used for over 40 years. Please support the Long Live Southbank campaign.

My man DJ Harry Love has been producing classic Hip-Hop joints for a number of years now featuring some of the UK's finest lyricists; Verb T, Ransom Badbonez and Jehst to name a few. He has just released a new compilation via Bandcamp called Homeworkwork Volume 1:Birthday Beats. It os ten tracks long and can be bought from Bandcamp for as little as £3 although listening to it will surely prompt you to make a more generous donation. Its a dope little project with some interesting beats and rhymes. Hopefully the first in a series of compilations from one of London's finest. Pick that shit up y'all.
