Hoodz In A Corner

Culture. Music. Fashion. Words.

Rappers trying brag about accomplishments, but nothing you been dropping yet astonishes.



Today is the start of our new project: The Elijah & Skilliam Show which will be a podcast and visual series giving you Grime and Culture from our travels around the world. Our first edition is recorded in Tokyo, Japan with a bunch of artists making Grime out here. Special shouts to Pakin for organising, and all the DJs and MCs for passing through and sharing their music.

The first half of the show is a back to back with Japanese producers, and the second half is Elijah & Skilliam selecting with the MCs going in. Follow all their Soundclouds below who featured on the show, and we will update the post with more Japanese Grime producers you can check out as we find them during our stay.

Artists on the show:

@Lexo_Music adds a deep vocal cut to the Bay Area producer, VNDMG’s “Hiatus”. Delving into conscious territory, the MC reflects on life & loss in this introspective remix.

@Rustie’s fresh single “Attak” featuring @xdannyxbrownx is a bass weighted devastation. This one comes off his upcoming album “Green Language” due out on Warp this August, 2014.
