OverTime – This is Me – Video Only

Missoula in the USA may well seem an out of the way location to find rap. As Tyler Bugatti of OverTime says – OverTime didn’t come from any hood. He didn’t rep any sets, and he’s never conformed to anybody to blend in. Hailing from Missoula, MT, rapping was the last thing he ever thought he’d […]

A highly proficient alto-sax and pianoforte player, […]

Sunny Jackson

Sunny Jackson is a poetic beats hip-hop soloist from Los Angeles in the USA I was wondering about writing about Sunny, not through his own fault, but simply every-time I come across rap, poetic beats and hip-hop I immediately reference John Cooper Clarke, which is a little like comparing Shakespeare to Keats, irrelevant but it lies in […]
