When you're talking talent and quality music - I mean, we all have our preferences but talent and quality can't be copied. It's something people are born with or practice to achieve. Kehmak is one of those names that come to mind when you're talking about talented musicians. He doesn't just rap, he makes music. Music that stands for something. Although he can be his comedic self from time to time. After dropping "Revenge of the Nerds" not too long ago, Kehmak is gearing up to give us some brand new music this year and the first glimpse we get is "Break The Internet". Standing as an anti-internet song, about how we all spend so much time worrying about what we post and how our pictures look that we forget to focus on the little things around us and the people who are in our lives daily. With Culture on the boards, you can never go wrong either. Kehmak, along with Casper, Culture and TT Lo (collectively known as Treetop) make music that stands out among the masses. "Break The Internet" will show you just that. Old Soul is due out this summer, and I couldn't be more excited. Not being with the boys all the time back home makes it hard to hear some of the new music on the way. Ironically, it's a great song for me to jump back on the posts too, having been on hiatus from digging for new music all the time spending endless hours on the internet. A good breathe of fresh air. It's always needed for everyone, although never take a pause on your goals. Take a listen to Kehmaks "Break The Internet" because I'll bet you feel the same way sometimes.
It's been a long time in the making. On October 2nd, Kehmak is set to release his highly anticipated project, Revenge of the Nerds.

This one right here. Screams unity. Like many other cities, there's always animosity between different hip-hop circles. After all, hip-hop wouldn't be entirely what it is without the competition. Though in today's day and age, we compete on a much larger scale, other than our own geographical location. Five years ago, you probably wouldn't of seen this happen, though the progression Londons hip-hop scene has seen over those five years is amazing. Streetscape and Treetop team up for the banger of the summer, "Call It Out". Shot by Ender, and edited by Del Reze. All filmed and edited in one day! Produced by Quince, the flow these three demonstrate on this timeless London track shows you London has a slew of undiscovered talent. Having the opportunity to sit in on this studio session and witness this one come together was a blessing. I'm proud of both teams. Take a dive into the heart of the city, where hip-hop thrives and tell me you can't mess with this one.
"Let it be known, when I get in my zone, it's go hard or go home around here or go to church man". Treetop has been grinding like crazy lately, Casper teaming up with Richie Blackz the other day for "Small Town", Kehmak linking up with Maverick Judson on "Bright Lights" which dropped yesterday. Than today, Casper lets loose a brand new video for the radio smash hit, "Let It Be Known" produced by Culture. This classy video takes place at a fancy restaurant, as Casper, Kehmak, Culture and Half Mickey sit down for a meeting. Things have been business as usual for the whole Treetop team, this just shows the progression right here. The video was shot by Shuttle, who also did "Too Nice" not to long ago. If you haven't got MMM5 I'd highly suggest getting that, that way you can bump "Let It Be Known". Let me know your thoughts on the video in the comments section.
