MP3: J. Monday - "A Change Gonna Come" (prod. by The AmazNs)
If you're tired of the same ol' cliche subject matter than J. Monday has the cure for your ills. The Capital Kid promises "A Change Gonna Come" on this leak off his upcoming mixtape The Prequel Redux. Produced by NYC production duo The AmazNs, the track features a mean sample from Sam Cooke's classic song.
Shunda K’s debut album The Most Wanted dropped this week with 20 tracks and a CD time constraint pushing 78 minutes of music recorded with producers and collaborators from all over the world. One of these collaborators is female UK-based rapper, Tan. The song is “My Light” - http://www.fanaticpromotion.com/projects/shundak-themostwanted/mp3/shunda-k-mylight.mp3 - and is Shunda K’s most explosive and wholly accessible mainstream single yet. The track is another patented power-positive cut with Tan singing in the addictive chorus, “Got to find my own light, searching for some action, it’s a natural attraction, they got me looking for mine, searching for mind, have you seen my light…”
Next up, Shunda K will debut her contribution to the ongoing “It Gets Better” Project (itgetsbetter.org) started by famed syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage in the form of the video for The Most Wanted single “I’m Da Best” (feat. Shon B). Directed by Steven Andrew Garcia of The Masses (wearethemasses.com) who has recently shot clips for Mika Miko and Male Bonding among others, the clip is a controversial assault on Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church.

Shunda K’s debut solo album The Most Wanted arrives on the heels of two Shunda K mixtapes downloaded thousands of times each, US and Australian dates opening for electro superstar Peaches, a collab on the track and video for the Peaches song “Billionaire”, and the NME naming Shunda K to its “Cool List” and earmarking The Most Wanted’s first single “Here I Am To Save The World” as one of “10 Tracks You Need To Hear”. A two-week west coast tour with Oakland, California’s HOTTUB (facebook.com/hottubmusic) will be announced shortly.
Stylah, never one to go with the grain has opted for a UK regional lineup for the first official remix to his underground smash Killa.
"Everyone draws for their people or who's hot in London for most remixes, in the US remixes unite different markets and regions from across the whole of the States so that's what I wanted to do with this version - put together a real team UK with people repping from all over".
Featuring on the remix are some of the hottest talent from outside the capital including Malik (MD7) from Birmingham, R.I.O. from Manchester, Wariko from Notts, K.Ners from Bristol and Kof from Liverpool.
