The Icepick is probably the most multi-faceted emcee in the UK game, and is unarguably one of its best. He has one of the games most viscous flows, battles at an incredibly high level, and has a body of work that is both varied and experimental.

Before I get into this week’s ‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? I would like to give a special thanks to Neighborhood Watch World Wide, Rap Review, Sinous Magazine and everyone else that has been supporting the series. We need that word-of-mouth attention and spread in order to see this thing achieve what I know it can. Even a few minutes to shout it out on FB/Twitter is helping us out!
I’d like to introduce Brooklyn, New York emcee Jae Apollo. Jae took some time to talk about what hip hop means to him with a special focus n its liberating qualities. Sometime’s artists, and even people in general, may feel pigeonholed into a particular style, life or attitude. Jae feels that hip hop allows him to be himself and do as he would like. Does hip hop free YOU?

Chuck Inglish of The Cool Kids is back with the banger "Back Up" Remix, in which he calls for back up in the form of G.O.O.D. Music’s own Travi$ Scott. Heavy on the synths and the 808, the sparse but bouncy remix which was produced by Travi$ Scott and Inglish himself and will be released as part of his forthcoming solo album, Convertibles. The album will be released on his own Sounds Like Fun imprint in conjunction with TV On The Radio member Dave Sitek and Org Music’s new joint label Federal Prism.
While most collaborations nowadays rarely happen in-person, it was special for the two rising emcees to come together in the studio, and that chemistry comes across on the "Maintain." "I'd made a track that I felt like it was perfect for Joey," recalls Dizzy on how the song, produced by Funk Volume's DJ Hoppa, first came about. "It was cool working in the studio together. We’re both young, both energetic – we just got a good vibe and got creative." The finished product is an uplifting track, with both rappers delivering on the '90s vibe that permeates much of their music. "We were trying to convey that feel-good sound," says Dizzy. "It just all fell together."
Trek Life is preparing to release his newest album "Hometown Foreigner" April 2nd (digital) and April 9th (CD) on Mello Music Group. The new album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Duke Westlake. The album features verses from yU, Oddisee, Bishop Lamont, Richard Wright, and more! To give people their first taste of the sound to come, Trek is releasing the single Just The Music.
