NHWWW Presents: Young Skip (Kenny Bryant), a 21 year old solo hip hop artist from Cincinnati. He started recording in 2010 at the former local studio Heavy Rotations. Since then he has recorded and collaborated with Mr. Payne and SS Platinum of Wyte Music Ohio, Cutty Marci, Boss Lady, Sharky Hollywood, and Chris Mike. As a former member of the group Winner's Circle and rookie of the West Side Cincy based group "Amauri Ent.", Skip is quickly making a name for himself.
For the album cut "Resilient" Substantial brings on Seattle producer and Bop Alloy partner Marcus D to provide a smoothed out, jazz infused remix.

The Marcus D jazz remix is a perfect fit for the reflective & uplifting declarations of Substantial.
United States of Mind's 5iLL and D. Allie Release New Albums
A master of story telling through sounds and samples, United States of Mind's 5iLL (Sean Ferraiuolo) strikes a chord in the hip hop community with the grace of a jazz musician and the playful humor of a clever lyricist with his latest release, Una Grande Versatilita.
This collaborative effort between United States of Mind and Hi Hill Recordings has been a long time in the making. Moonchild and D. Allie faced many set backs along the way. From being in different states and working through email to getting wrapped up in other collaborative efforts, time kept passing. Throw in the struggles of everyday life and a hard drive crash which resulted in losing the original recordings they thought the album would never be completed.
Innuendo's forth solo project Spilt Ink LP is an astonishing blend of Scouse humour, intricate lyricism, social commentary and truthful, personal story telling. It features top some of the most respected homegrown Hip-Hop artist such as Tony D, Genesis Elijah and AC as well as local Liverpool talent like Jamie Broad, Joey Seary and Sprungy.
