Search for Kulez on You Tube and it will soon become apparent that the Zimbabwean born emcee has already packed in so many punchlines and metaphoric imagery that you wonder how he sustained the intensity for over 100 battles.
Looking forward we are set for a debut solo album for 2011. You won’t hear the eerie baritone hollers of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, but the dubstep and d’n’b influence with a hint of grime and a whole load of hip hop lyricism. At 20 years old, still unsigned, no managers, no booking agents or lawyers the kid is fully independent.
Here we have an exclusive mix for Sturban Clothing mixing styles from all genre’s of UK and the odd US urban music artist, and like the Sturban site and clothing brands this mix is raw, earthy, underground and untamed, it’s of the street and for the street – original since the day we dared be different.
If anybody reading fancies doing a podcast it’s one hour min in mp3 format and supply us with a tracklisting, simple as that we aint exclusive we are happy that if you have a band are a producer, dj or just like music then wack some tracks together and entertain us we wont make fun, we not unless you slip in some S Club 7 tracks. we can supply drops so hit me up glyn[at]sturbanclothing.com.

Style Wars tells the story of the development of New York Graffiti Art during the early 1980’s. It shows the development of the many graffiti letters styles, graffiti artists discussing over graffiti blackbooks and the surrounding cultural development like hip hop breakdance, etc.
The movie features artists like Dondi White, Seen and many more.
Henry Chalfant was the main person to document the development of the New York Graffiti Art movement during the 1970′ and 1980’s. His book Subway Art is recognised as the main source for Graffiti Train Art and Graffiti Letters Styles development.

The Urban Shop have this theme going on and are regularly dropping articles like this that poke fun almost at the way the industry and media like to give things names which are in the main meaning less and usually pointless, that said they do make interesting reading
At the start of the decade, hip-hop
was on fire. Record sales were booming, chart-topping artists seemed to pop up daily and the music generated a whole new fashion look. Musicians and producers like Jay-Z, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Beyonc� Knowles and 50 Cent were eager to extend their brands into apparel, spawning labels such as G-Unit, Rocawear and Sean John. The result was what seemed to be a newly formed urban clothing sector, boosting the industry’s revenues by millions.
Today, record sales are plummeting and many music artists’ lines are struggling. As hip-hop’s popularity has dropped, so has that of the clothing brands that rode the wave, rapper 50 Cent and Marc Ecko parted ways on the G-Unit brand, and independent urban clothing stores
have either shutting or being scaled down.
Rare exclusive interview with UK rapper LATE for The Urban Shop
|Where are you from and what was it like growing up there?
I’m from Wolverhampton AKA Wolftown, The city of broken dreams and failed dodgy schemes its like any other working class area of the UK, I’ve done fair share of dodgyness, been around all the wrong things, lost a lot of people on the way, just like anyone that hasn’t grew up in cotton wool.
How did you get your name and is there a story behind it?
It was my tag back in the day, I was a graffiti artist back in the day, I was all city, I was wanted, my tag was mentioned on the news
Was there a situation or a person who inspired you to rap?
It was a natural progression from dj’ing and mastering the 4 elements of hip hop, B-Boying, graffiti, dj’ing right thru to mc’ing, my first influence to rap was when I heard ICE-T on the song ‘High Rollers’.

|Even casual grime fans probably heard Dizzee Racal’s Maths + English, released last year on XL Recordings. Now, fresh off a U.S. distro of Mike Ladd’s Nostalgialator,� Def Jux is releasing Maths + English in the States.�
|El-P has put together a megamix of some of the original Maths + English songs, as well as the four new tracks on the U.S. version: “Driving With No Where to Go,” “G.H.E.T.T.O.,” a “Pussyole” remix by Pretty Todd, and an El-P mix of “Where da G’s.” �
I wasn’t a big fan of Dizzee I heard his first single and it all sounded the same after that but then whilst in Europe I saw a live performance and man the guy rocks.
|He’s been ignored by this week’s Brit Awards, but Dizzee Rascal certainly isn’t lacking mainstream appeal.
|Plenty of middle-aged fans actually witnessed this return from the 22-year-old rapper Dylan Mills. Which is surprising because my general experience of grime and UK hip-hop has been that it’s only really listened to on snazzy mobile phones by surly youths at bus stops.
