@CAPPO_GENGHIS & @Stealf - Unicron (EP) @DeFactoEnt

'De Facto Entertainment' is proud to present ‘Unicron’ courtesy of Nottingham veteran 'Cappo' produced by boom bap aficionado 'Stealf'. The consistent work rate combined with the deep abstract lyricism is why 'Cappo' is regarded as one of the greats in UK Hip Hop and 'Stealf' holds an impressive production resume which promises that ‘Unicron’ will live up to that reputation.

‘Unicron’ is a 5 track E.P including a special remix of the lead single ‘ SM58 Live Rounds’ from legendary producer Evil Ed. Cappo brings his immaculate wordplay creating vivid imagery that sit deep in your conscious conveying a fresh imprint with every listen. When you combine this with the thumping drums, sinister melodies and hypnotising bass lines from the self confessed vinyl hoarder Stealf you have a classic between your eardrums.

Unicron is available now across all digital stores including the De Facto Entertainment website and Bandcamp store. Let ‘Unicron’ take you on a journey of self-reflection and transform you into an entity bigger than you could ever imagine.

Army Of The Pharaohs (@vinnie_paz, @MCEsoteric, @OuterSpaceAOTP, @ApathyDGZ, @CelphTitled, @LostCauze, @KINGSYZE) - Heavy Lies The Crown (Album)

Initiated in 1998 by Jedi Mind Tricks frontman Vinnie Paz as homage to the incredible rap crews of the 80’s and early 90’s, the Army of the Pharaohs has, from its outset, been an ever-evolving collective of celebrated emcees from the indie hip-hop scene. Founding members Vinnie Paz and Esoteric were featured on the crew’s original 12-inch single, “Five Perfect Exertions,” in 1998 and remain with the crew today. With the release of their debut studio album The Torture Papers in 2006, the Pharaoh clique expanded to include accomplished solo emcees Apathy, Celph Titled, King Syze, Reef the Lost Cauze, and the Philly hip-hop duo and frequent Jedi Mind Tricks collaborators, Outerspace.

In its nearly two decades, AOTP has released three studio albums alongside countless solo albums and sideprojects from its lineup of emcees that have been some of the most critically-acclaimed and best-selling indie hip hop records of the past 20 years. With the release of their newest effort, In Death Reborn, the Army returns after a four-year hiatus to release its fourth group album featuring the lead single/video for “God Particle” featuring Vinnie Paz, Planetary, Esoteric, Apathy & Celph Titled and produced by Stu Bangas. The album also features appearances by Blacastan, Zilla, Block McCloud, Demoz, Doap Nixon, King Magnetic & Lawrence Arnell.

@MuGGzOnDrugz & Scene 5 Present: The 5th Scene @LiveThruYours

MuGGz describes his genre as Street Science, a term coined by LTY. It is the answer to what he as an artist uniquely offers that’s largely missing from commercial rap music. If you can apply science to anything, then street science is comprised of experiences and stories that one who’s familiar with the streets can extract and use to create a better cultural foundation for the future.

Excellent EP here from these guys, 90's beats with a knowledgeable street conscious vibe.

Dope Shit.

@MCBravado - Walk The Line (EP)

"MC Bravado’s “Walk the Line” showcases an artist interweaving an iconic musician's experiences, outlooks, and soundscapes with those of his own, resulting in a thoughtfully crafted, well-executed conceptual EP that does both parties justice. This ode to Johnny Cash was released as a free download, October 13 (the same day Cash was inducted into the CMA Hall of Fame) on Bandcamp. It features additional guest appearances/production from Soul Khan of the Brown Bag All-Stars, YouTube sensation Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs, Fonte Cruise, and Seth Bright of Triple 8 Music, Aaron Chamberlain of the Time Police, as well as SC Static, No-Name, Militant Marxman, and C-Nature of MC Bravado’s own Cypher Junkies crew.

Prior to his latest release, Bravado has worked with the likes of Mac Lethal, Copywrite, J57 and KONCEPT of BBAS, EP of the Doppelgangaz, and more. His unflappable, left-field approach, distinct delivery, and almost peerless lyricism continue to make him an artist to watch, with each entry in his ever-growing catalog seemingly outshining its predecessor."

Swamp Thing (@SwampThingRaps) (@TimbuktuRaps + @chokeules + @Savilion): Firedogs (Album)

Swamp Thing is the brainchild of Timbuktu, Chokeules and Savilion. Their first album Creature Feature offered a glimpse into the warped world of Swamp Thing, but now the b-movie monsters drag themselves out of the depths for their hard-hitting sophomore release, Firedogs. Three well-established artists in their own right join forces to do what they do best: make dope hip hop and rock hype live shows, fine-tuned from years of work in the studio and countless performances.

Long time collaborators Timbuktu (Toolshed, Teenburger, Backburner) and Chokeules (Toolshed, Backburner) have teamed up with fellow Toronto emcee/producer Savilion (Creature Box, Backburner) to form a group unlike anything they've done before. Each member has been contributing to the scene for over a decade, recording, touring, and putting out music. Both Savilion and Timbuktu are also producers/engineers with credits ranging from Sadat X to Awol One, while Timbuktu and Chokeules have performed at festivals such as SXSW, NXNE, CMW and Under Pressure. They've also performed with notable acts like Aceyalone (Freestyle Fellowship), GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Lootpack (Stone Throw), El Da Sensei (Artifacts), and many more.

Swamp Thing combines the trio's experience as Savilion and Timbuktu create party soundtracks and soundsapes on which the three emcees rap about topics ranging from horror and sci-fi to wild nights and life on the road. At the end of the day, Swamp Thing is all about banging beats, hard rhymes, and melting faces off with rap. Stay tuned.

NEHRUVIANDOOM (@BishopNehru + M.F. DOOM): NEHRUVIANDOOM (Sound Of The Son)

NEHRUVIANDOOM is Bishop Nehru's debut album. Produced by Metal Fingers and featuring MF DOOM vocals on several tracks, it's a compact nine track, 30 minute long player.

Bishop Nehru's breakthrough mixtapes, released from the age of 15 saw him rhyming over DOOM produced instrumentals. DOOM joined the line of MCs who co-signed the young rapper including heavyweight lyricists Kendrick Lamar and Nas, who introduced him on stage during his set at SXSW as "The future of music".

Still only 17, Bishop has wrapped up his debut album for Lex, a collaborative project with MF DOOM.

@DJJS1: It Is What It Isn't (Ground Original 4)

DJ JS-1 of the world famous Rock Steady Crew is set to release his 6th full length album, IT IS WHAT IT ISN'T (Ground Original 4). Known for his traditional boom bap style, scratch hooks, and bevy of legendary features, this album, which is NOT a compilation, will add on to his impressive catalog. IT IS WHAT IT ISN'T boasts a line-up featuring new songs with ERICK SERMON of EPMD, KRS-ONE, MURS & FASHAWN, BUCKSHOT, ILL BILL & SLAINE of La Coka Nostra, TORAE, HOMEBOY SANDMAN, O.C, The ARTIFACTS, and many more. It has 21 new songs featuring over 45 artists including colaborations that cannot be duplicated such as the song HIGHER LEVEL with BROTHER J and PROFESSOR X of X-CLAN.

The title, IT IS WHAT IT ISN'T comes from a lack of credibility as many artists falsely portray themselves today using social media. DJ JS-1 has grown a world-wide fan-base by consistently touring for over 16 years now, proving himself and representing hip-hop culture in over 45 countries. JS-1 is also an accomplished graffiti artist, JERMS, hence the graffiti/dj reference on the cover art. While he stays promoting the true culture and essence of what millions of fans want around the globe, many others gain followers by manipulating people's perceptions. It seems it's all about what people think you've done, rather than what you've truly done. As the title track says, "In the world that we live in, it's fake it til you fit in, perception is reality, it is what it isn't..." Like JS-1, the artists on this album have paid their dues and shown and proved for decades. The lead single "Turn the Tables" with O.C is an ode to the origins of hip hop djaying with Kool DJ Red Alert making a guet appearance as the song is a tribute to many legendary disc jockeys from the golden era. As other new DJ/Producers jump ship and go the route of making dance remixes that get lost in the mix, DJ JS-1 aka JERMS has pushed forward and steadily fed his fans what they crave both musically and with his graffiti/"street art."

Once again, JS-1 does not disappoint. A full length album with a variety of credible MCees, both older and newer, concept songs with content, and all new beats strictly produced by himself, not a production team or with licensed or bought beats from several producers. There is only a handful of DJ's who have successfully done this for soo long. Another classic "underground" hiphop album that is a great addition to anyone's collection who does not love the radio and trend-chasing nonsense. IT IS WHAT IT ISN'T...

Diamond District (@yUthe78er x @uptownxo x @ODDISEE): March On Washington (Album)

We attract people who need that boom and that bap." That's more than a line; it's a legacy. When Diamond District dropped In the Ruff on Mello Music Group in 2009, the gritty drums and grimy raps combined as elementally as hydrogen and oxygen. The D.C. Voltron of Oddisee, yU, and X.O. dusted off and revitalized a sound once consigned to the catacombs.

Hailed as an instant classic, its impact reverberated throughout the underground and mainstream. The Washington D.C. City Paper called it the city's best album in many years. During an era when lyricism was deemed too intellectual and samples too dated, Diamond District overturned conventional logic. They preserved the raw and made it righteous.

A half-decade later, the holy trinity has returned with March on Washington. The truths remain timeless. Wisdom over rhythm. Slang turned into testament. The march turned into indelible memory. This is rap for every man (and woman) done by extraordinary men. They're doing it for the pioneers of the culture and for Trayvon Martin, for those workers toiling on the weekends to get their moms out of the hood.

It's music to entertain, but also to restore a feeling. It places an increasingly rare value on wordplay, flows, concepts, breath control, and passion. It's replete with the intangibles that make hip-hop special. Oddisee crafts beats that bang like galvanized soul, hard enough to deflect bullets but infused with a veiled sensitivity. And as the group says on finale, "Bonus Flow," they made it cool for "K. Dot to do what he do....and "Oddisee's better than Kanye too."

The songs reflect the creative push and pull of the group itself, three solo artists who manifest something greater than the sum of their parts. This is the antidote for those who feel like they didn't leave hip-hop, hip-hop left them. It refuses to spin its wheels or let its focus stray. It is filthy enough to come from the gutter, but it doesn't cater to low sensibilities. There is the spirit of the old transplanted into the legs of the new. Round up the troops, lace those boots. This is triumph that you can march to, until you can't walk anymore.
