SoulKast - Première Salve

Hip hop music is alive in France!  Most definitely, check out Première Salve from French rapper Soulkast.  Real nice visuals from the music video.  Soulkast's rapid fire flow ripped DJ Premier's beat to shreds!

The song is also available for MP3 download.
 
 
Mista Blaze

Fly Away is an inspirational song by Blaze N Sly Kane feat. Pow Chavez from The Philippines.  Blaze N Sly Kane both rap in the style of Bone Thugs.  Blaze (the guy with the goatee) sounds a lot like Bizzy Bone.

This is clip of Sbazzo performing live in Beijing, China.  Sbazzo is one half of Beijing's most popular hip duo, Yin Ts'ang.  I think I see Grand Master Chu acting as the hype man!
 
 
Jackie Chain

Jackie Chain is out with another pseudo pimp rap called This Is Not Enough, featuring Mali Boi & Assasyn.  Produced by Block Beataz. Sampled from Tatu's All The Things She Said (remember the Russian lesbian duo from way back?).

Jackie Chain's rapping style is always consistent even though he raps about seemingly "wrong things".  Definitely one of my favorite up and coming rappers.
 
 
RedPandaSan

RedPandaSan, a Vietnamese rapper from OC, California, came out with this nice meditative song about his struggles called So Long (Hustler Anthem).  Feelin this one.
 
 
Global Syndicate - Lost

Lost is by Vancouver hip hop group Global Syndicate featuring Zane Gold on the hook.  The music video really captures the "coldness" of life in Vancouver.
