24 year old Amplify Dot (or ‘Dot’ to her friends) has been making waves as one of the most thrilling underground talents over the past few years, bubbling just below the surface with props from Ms Dynamite, Wretch 32, Kano, MistaJam, Westwood, and Zane Lowe, but also attracting the attention of Missy Elliott (more on that later). The South London resident has one of the most exciting voices in the genre, spitting confident rhymes and creating a witty narrative about the world around her.
'That Real Live Shit' is a collaborative album from emcee DarkoTheSuper and French producer Khryo. It's filled with abstract sample based beats and intriguing rhymes. With its title coming from the late great J Dilla's 'Ruff Draft' Intro. 'That Real Live Shit' lives up to its name and doesn't disappoint.

Video: Mickey Factz Breaks Down VladTV's 100 Battle List
DJ Vlad: Mickey Factz stopped by our VladTV studios recently to share his insights on the Top 100 Rap Battles Of The Past Few Years list, that was recently crafted by me, Michael Hughes. He, like the majority of the battle community, either mistaken my list for being a "Top 100 Battles Of All Time" list, or simply weren't too fond of the list at all. Mickey spoke his mind freely during my interview with him, as he openly critiqued any and all issues that he had with certain battles that were placed on it, the order, etc. He also announced to the battle rap community that he is currently working on a Top 100 Battle list of his own, only his will be of "All-Time." Look out for that list to drop within a month hopefully.
