When Hackney’s Klashnekoff dropped “Daggo Mentality” via 2001’s Wordplay Records compilation “Word Lab 2”, he hit the UK Hip-Hop scene like a lyrical force of nature alongside his Terra Firma crew, with further releases such as “Zero” and “Murda” becoming instant classics and cementing K-Lash’s reputation as a true microphone master.

Fast-forward eighteen years and the London-based legend has just dropped the lead single from his forthcoming album “Iona”, produced by fellow Hackney representative and all-round talent Funky DL, an individual with plenty of his own Hip-Hop history to speak on.

“Iona” is released on November 8th.

New Joint – Tommy Evans

Tommy Evans – “Flow (H20)” (@TommyA_ManEvans / 2019)

The UK emcee responsible for a slew of quality releases during the early-to-mid-2000s on labels like YNR and First Word makes a welcome return following a lengthy hiatus from the microphone.

This DJ Agent M-produced cut speaks for itself in terms of reintroducing Tommy’s irrepressible rhyme skills to the masses, with the Leeds-born lyricist bobbing and weaving around solid, dense drum and a catchy sample.

Lookout for a new album coming soon.
