South East London rapper Phoenix has dropped a superb mix tape with Baptism Under Fire. This is a CD you’ll either want to chill out to or be compelled to play to everyone you know in order to get them into it too.
It’s a lengthy (but never dull) twenty two track 78 minute excursion into top quality UK Hip-Hop. Phoenix’s highly lyrical and fluid rhyming is complimented by the small selection of guests who join him, these include J Da Exodus, Masikah and AKS.
It is a mixtape, but what is a mixtape these days anyway, just a set of tunes a bit too rough for an album release? If this is the case, you might wish to prepare yourself to be blown away when Phoenix drops his album proper.
It has been 2 weeks since the official release of "RayBanz" and the Stereo Boyz couldn't be happier with the results. 15.000 views on YouTube, blog posts all over the Net and most importantly, positive feedback from fans, DJ's and Radio.

Some have a bad day, others a bad month, and for those really going through it, a bad year. For Bekay, it was 15 months of back to back heart break, where he lost both friends and family to murder and illness. Bekay has always used music as an outlet to work through life's speed bumps, but what happens when those speed bumps become mountains? On "15 Months of Bloody Violins," Bekay returns to the mic after taking an inevitable hiatus to purge his mind of the trails and tribulations that have kept him at bay from what he loves most - rapping his ass off. Call this song Bekay's catharsis, or call it plain insanity, either way Bekay hasn't lost a step and spits with even more ferocity than even his most die hard of fans are used to. Produced by DJ Morte of Buenos Aires, "15 Months of Bloody Violins" is Bekay's grand re-entrance, so stay tuned as he gets set to launch more music from his Horror Flick Entertainment imprint.
