The Ruff Sqwad family’s very own Fudz has released a new single. ‘Johnny’ features a guest verse from Splurgeboy Rocket over Detonator production, and a video has been released following a play from Mistajam on 1Xtra. P A P and Jme are among those to appear with Rocket and Fudz in the video, along with the fictional Johnny character referred to in the song.


London & Liverpool clash in Grime-A-Side

The second quarter final of Red Bull’s Grime-A-Side has been released, with a trio of MCs from London – Reece West, Yizzy and captain C Cane – taking on a Liveprool team consisting of Jeopardy, Wavey Joe and captain Rico Don. Unlike the Bristol-Wolverhampton clash before it, this one feels much more direct throughout, with the Scousers reworking some of their London counterpart’s bars while Wavey Joe’s comprising connections to the capital are brought up.

With their many years in the music industry, J2K and Wiley would have had to deal with more than their fair share of sharks and snakes in the business, and well… they’ve had enough. J2K’s new single ‘Rotten Apples’ featuring Eskiboy is in defiance of the label piss-takers, one of whom appears to be the POV in the music video while tied up in the car boot.

Row D returns with ‘What Don’t Kill You Makes You Stronger’

After a spell of ill health, Row D has returned with not one but two projects. Following last month’s instruMENTALs EP is a new mixtape by the name of Don’t Get Bitter Get Better, and the North Londoner has just dropped a video from the latter for ‘What Don’t Kill You Makes You Stronger’, which he produced himself.

The mixtape is released 23 October but you can hear it before that if you grab a limited edition Row D USB, which features a whole heap of his music. More info on his releases can be heard in a recent Reprezent Radio interview with this writer (below), as well as a premiere of mixtape track ‘That’s Just How It Goes’.
