Hailing from the South Coast Spitfire is a young up and coming MC who's been starting to make a name for himself in the UK scene with a the release of several free download tracks in quick succession over beats from producers from all around the world. Now, with the release of his eponymous debut extended play - also free download - he's ready to really start making his mark on UK hiphop. The Spitfire EP is a 5 track slice of real, raw lyricism combining witty quips with sharp metaphors over beats produced by Spitfire's musical partner in crime Towa, which recall classic hiphop vibes with smart modern twists.

Amongst the 5 hard hitting tracks on the EP is "Slow Dance With Satan" which was released to a good critical response earlier in 2012 and has been building a steady momentum ever since. The video for the track will drop soon along with a video for another banger on the EP, The Cavalry. Featuring Spitfire dropping countless flows over a sparse un-nerving beat it is not a tune to be missed. Look out for Spitfire's YouTube channel coming very soon!

Hit Spitfire's Bandcamp to download the EP (link at the bottom) and get excited for his debut album, due to be released mid to late 2012 with an array of features from both UK and international artists it will be a long player not to be missed. For now though, the Spitfire EP looks to make an impact on the UK and let people know that Spitfire is a young MC to keep a close eye on in 2012 and beyond.

Long Island's Kasual serves up the latest visuals for the Araab Muzik produced "Brilliant".  Directed by Michael Chow, this video takes you on a cinematic journey through the ups and downs of Kasual's career; from label advances, touring with Rick Ross and living the rap life, to seeing it all vanish before his very eyes as he  wanders the streets of New York as a vagrant, haunted by reminders of his ill-fated success.
