So once again i've been slacking on keeping this blog up to date and i apologise for that. The truth is all this typing does not excite me at all...and i'm kinda lazy! But 2013 was a busy year for me so let me try and get you up to date. This is a quick recap of 2013 as we look towards an exciting 2014.
Early in 2013 i released the video to the song 'Revolution'
Filmed by Global Faction and featuring Rebel Diaz, Logic, Big Frizzle and Renee Soul - 'Revolution' is a meeting of like minded emcees over a #BOOMING Agent of Change beat.

"This has got to be one of the biggest col­lab­or­a­tions of the year. UK and USA Hip Hop join forces as Rod­ney P teams up with Rebel Daz, Logic, Big Frizzle and Renee Soul for ‘Revolu­tion’ a power­ful track bring­ing us an essence of unity and resistance!" 


Rodney P ft Rebel Diaz, Logic, Big Frizzle & Renee Soul - Revolution
Zed BiasFallacy & Me also released our third single as 'Sleepin' Giantz in 2013!

"Raving Bully” is the third single to be lifted from the self-titled 2012 album by Sleepin’ Giantz (the acclaimed collaboration between UK legends Zed Bias, Rodney P and Fallacy). 
With heavy new remixes from Dobie, Skitz & Wizard, Ben & Lex and Madd! Again (new project from Maddslinky aka Zed Bias, on the link-up with MC Trigga), the digital single release also brings a killer new video.
Shattering genre divides throughout UK bass music and beyond, the Sleepin’ Giantz album has been widely hailed as a masterclass, gaining major props from the likes of Benji B (BBC R1), MistaJam (1Xtra/R1),Sinden (KISS), The Heatwave (Rinse FM), Clash, Resident Advisor, Q, Fact, XLR8R, and many more."

....and in case you missed it, here's the video to the Sleepin' Giantz track 'Mucky'.
Big Up to the amazing Jenna G, raggamuffin MC Fox, Konny Kon (Broke N English) and Sparks (The Mouse Outfit) for the cameos!!!

Some say my foundation crew London Posse changed the UK rap game forever in 1990 with the release of our only album "Gangster Chronicle"

"They were a pioneering and influential group on the early UK Hip Hop scene" according to The Daily Telegraph "they finally gave British rap an identity of its own."

In Summer 2013 Tru Thoughts Records re-released ‘Gangster Chronicles: The Definitive Collection’.

"The seminal 1990 LP “Gangster Chronicle” repackaged and augmented with a comprehensive selection of exclusive, previously unheard tracks and eclectic remixes including the handiwork of Steve Mason, Wrongtom, The Nextmen, Hint and Drumagick."

In Sept 2013 i released ‘Success’ feat. Harleigh Blu and Renegade Brass Band on Tru Thoughts Records

"Vibrant, catchy, gritty yet smooth, “Success” is a brass-heavy, R‘n’B-inflected Hip Hop cut with all the hallmarks of a Future Classic. One of a handful of collaborative endeavours between the revered London Posse rapper Rodney P and the young, up and coming soul singer Harleigh Blu, and showcases the magic that happens when these two talents merge."

My good friend Joe Buhdha produced the track and also introduced me to Miss Harleigh Blu. They have made an amazing album together called "Forget Me Not" that Tru Thoughts Records were only too happy to release. If you like good grooves and soulful vibes you should check it out.

As ever i've been on the road a lot. 2013 was a good year for me and i was lucky enough to have performed at festivals Worldwide including the Dour Festival in Belgium along side the the jazz rap outfit 'Herbaliser' - "9000 People in a Tent"

I also appeared with my longtime DJ partner Daddy Skitz at The Xplosif in Norway were we shared the stage with Havoc of Mobb Deep fame. Shout Out to DJ Pursuit and the whole Stravanger Posse.

One of the highlights of the 2013 festival season for me was performing for the first time on the main stage at Bestival on The Isle of Wight with my  debaucherous band of brothers "The Dub Pistols". Being on the main stage was a huge honour and of course it meant i was able to be on stage to watch Nile Rodgers so you know i had a good day!

I also got to meet the Legendary Neville Staples of 'The Specials" while with The Dub Pistols at the Sunrise Festival. I grew up loving The Specials and i  felt like a real fan boy that day.

I did a lot of performances and met a lot of good people in 2013 and God willing 2014 is gonna to be even better it's been good so far. 

On the 22nd Feb 2014 we celebrated 15 Years of Tru Thoughts Records at Koko in Camden. It was a brilliant night with performances from Alice Russell, Nostalgia 77, Harleigh Blu, TY, Wrongtom meets The Ragga Twins, Anchorsong, TiteKnots, Werkha & Robert Louis.....and me of course.


The Tru Thoughts Crew definitely had Koko jumping that night. #BiggerLove goes out to everybody that's supported the label over the years and to everybody who has put in a shift in the office....Here's to another 15 Years!


UK Hip Hop culture was shown some love by the UK's leading Online broadcaster SBTV in 2013
I was able to handpick some of the emcee legends of UK urban music, and invited them to perform an exclusive freestyle for SBTV, schooling the audience on the art of rap.
