Mr Flex from Chosen Spokesmen finally drops the much anticipated release of his superb 'Nothing To Prove EP'. Featuring production from some the UK's biggest beat-makers such as Kelakovski, Chemo, Risk Beats and Beat Butcha, this is EP is a must for UK Rap fans. The EP also features Chosen Spokesmen members Blick Kid, Danger The Sergeant and Modulation, as well as guest features from female vocalist Sophie and UK heavy-hitters Ramson Badbonez, Iron Braydz, Kosyne and DJ 456.
The EP showcases Mr Flex's lyrical skills and versatility well and is already getting the thumbs up from various tastemakers in the UK scene. As one of the founding members of the group Chosen Spokesmen, Mr. Flex first took to writing rhymes in 2001 after hearing The Trilogy Remix by Jehst, Kyza and Chester P. Mr Flex was a well-respected name on the UK open mic circuit and took part in many sessions at Kung Fu, Deal Real, Speakers Corner and other respected London events.
As Mr Flex learned and nurtured his craft as an emcee he started to feature heavily on mixtapes from DJ 456 mixtapes, as well as hosting the latest mixtape from the Ipswich based DJ Represent entitled 'No Question Part 2'. The two are now in the studio working on EP together which is set to release by the end of the year. You can catch Mr Flex supporting Capital R and DJ 456 at gigs up and down the country.

SKAM2? is back with a new freestyle featuring his Miami comrades Low Life and Pone. On "None of Ya'll", they set the record straight about some people and other rappers in the game over Young Dro's "Freeze Me" record. SKAM2? is also preparing to release the first of his official projects later this year on SoFlo Entertainment.
Rapid Ric is back with his latest video, this one for the song, "Leanin." Like the majority of the tracks off his forthcoming debut album, Whut It Dew, being released via Dew Music Group for free download on July 12th, this single features a collection of esteemed MCs: A3, ESG, and Craig G. Not only was Ric the mastermind behind "Leanin", but he also decided to get behind the camera for his first stint as a video director.
As to be expected for a track titled "Leanin," the video is replete with one of the scene's staples, Styrofoam cups (in this case covered with airbrushed drawings memorializing deceased artists from the area including Pimp C and Big Moe) filled to the brim with Drank. "I'm leaning, leaning like man," goes the chorus. "Baby, I'm so dirty, but I'm riding so clean." Helping to keep the mood light, also, are a few obligatory strip club and car shots, and Rapid Ric, himself, playing the roll of a nerdy pharmacist, who quickly transforms back into his regular DJ'ing self after taking a sip.
