Underground Hip Hop legend Ruste Juxx pays homage to the influences, the neighborhoods, the music and the culture in the new video “Out In Brooklyn.” Teaming up with St.Laz of Pottersfield, Ruste Juxx’s dramatic and rhythmical verses merits his role as a formidable force in the Hip Hop landscape and reminds us why he was the protégé of legendary rapper Sean Price.
St. Laz adds lyrical flavor to the track with his emotional glorification, devotion and love for Brooklyn. Producer BigBob captures the essence of the artists with his commitment to representing hip hop culture with his classic productions, ensuring the end product is a pleasurable listen while continuing to attract new listeners as well as to delight his current fan base.
New video ‘Alligator Skin’ by dope North West London lyricist Da Flyy Hooligan, the latest from his album “S.C.U.M.” released on October 27th through US label 22 Entertainment which includes guest featured artists Westside Gunn and Hus Kingpin.
UK producer Agor has again laced this one with a stunning beat. A vocal and piano sampled slow burn feeds the switch up to a raucous guitar driven neck breaker, DFH typically taking the opportunity to let loose with both barrels in a lyrical onslaught.
Equally impressive are the new visuals shot by London director Ringz ov Saturn.
Also check the video interview below, his first for two years, where Da Flyy Hooligan reveals all about his artistic change of direction, his new album and his close relationship with the late Sean Price.
While discussing the themes and recording process of his recently released “S.C.U.M.” LP, he explains the transition from the artist formerly known as Iron Braydz to his current persona, a move in part inspired by actor Ray Winstone and the former Boot Camp Clik frontman who he describes as “one of the biggest influences on my life”.
Documenting the reason for his “Sean Price” tribute track, DFH proceeds to give an extensive in depth account of how their relationship grew through the years. He recounts their first meeting backstage in London and subsequent recording session evolving into a personal bond which would ultimately see the Brooklyn legend credit the young MC for his conversion to Islam.
In a series of very poignant recollections, their shared humour, respect and friendship is discernible culminating in rare video footage of the great man performing to his “little brother”on the Jazz Cafe stage. Following a further personal tribute to Bernadette Price, Harlesden’s finest outlines his release plans for 2018.

If you missed the original double album “Day of the Guiding Light / Followed by the shadow” from OptiMystic, and if you follow HHLAT you probably did because I dropped off the grid! So my apologies to OptiMystic and Tom at NOCure PR who I promised a review and never delivered. It was something I shouldn’t of taken on at the time. In fact, I loved the double album concept and the way OptiMystic dealt with the topics displaying a range of flows and wordplay, accompanied by a stellar guest list of artists. Stream and get the double album here and check it out for yourselves.
