K Koke x RCA / Roc Nation x Signing

22 01 2011

After ongoing rumours URM can confirm that K-Koke is now officially signed to Sony RCA / Roc Nation in what is a groundbreaking venture. It has been an amazing journey for K-Koke and no one can deny him the success which he has duely deserved.

USG rapper K-Koke is finally seeing the fruits of his labour having finally put pen to paper to clinch a deal with Sony RCA and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. URM have actually heard that rumour that the deal also encompasses his independent label Suspect/USG Entertainment and that the label is also a part of the deal too, but cannot confirm this at this time.

Either way this is just the beginning for Koke and his USG brothers as he begins the big campaign to crack America, which URM fully believe he is more than capable of. It is a sign of the great progress UK Rap is making and the strides that will happen in the future.

For all Koke supporters anxious that this news will delay ‘Pure Koke Volume 2’ in February, this will definitely still be released in February as its being released independently on the USG label.

Congrats Koke… Lets see where this takes us…

Heres to the future…

Props to URM

 





MTV x The Wrap Up x Thai Matic x Interview

19 01 2011

Words: Leanne Petersen

Leanne Petersen recently caught up with UK rapper, Thai Matic. Having met up at a well-known coffee brand chain in Soho, they got talking about everything from mixtapes and working with family, to being a supporting act for Jay Electronica and much, much more…

The Wrap Up: Since your first mixtape, ‘Girls And Things’, how do you think you have progressed as an artist?

Thai Matic: I’m more comfortable in my own skin. I’ve experimented a lot more from then. I know that was a bit more experimental as a mixtape, but I think now I’ve diversified different avenues of getting out what I’m trying to say, rather than just the basic lyricism. I’m trying my hand at different things and there’s going to be a lot more to come from me.

TWU: So is ‘Let Me Land’ going to be the last mixtape before the album?

Thai Matic: It was going to be the final mixtape before the album, but then people want me to do another mixtape, so maybe. Fans are what the make the music happen, so if that’s what they want, then I’ll give it to them.

TWU: Do you think this will hinder your progression as an artist?

Thai Matic: I’m always progressing. I mean, mixtape to album progression is all about my current mood. Even with this mixtape, it’s kind of like an album to be quite honest, so I’m only going to progress musically. If my heart wants to do an album, then I’ll do an album, if I want to do a mixtape, then I’ll do a mixtape.

TWU: Previously you were in a group called Kuz, so what was it that made you go your own separate way?

Thai Matic: Basically the reason why I broke up with Kuz was because I felt that I needed my own creative space and I feel that’s hard to get when you’re in a group with people and everyone in Kuz were family members. It’s hard when you’re in a situation where you’ve got two egos that keep clashing and I needed to express myself, so I just thought it was time that I went about it by myself. We still make a lot of music together and we’re still cool.

TWU: Tell us about Wolf Gang…

Thai Matic: Well, Wolf Gang is just an umbrella of artists really. There are a few things coming, but I can’t really go into it right now. I’m sorry for withholding information, I’m worse than a politician right now (laughs). We all want to get somewhere with our music or our talents and five, six, seven hands are better than one, so it’s the best way to go about things. Read the rest of this entry »
