From Melanie J. Cornish:

Rob Kelly - First Irish MC on the BBC

Rob Kelly was invited to the cult segment "Fire In The Booth" on the 1xtra Hip-Hop Mix Show presented by Charlie Sloth on BBC and he didn't disappoint as he went in for 9 Minutes over Alchemist's "Bangers" & Young Money's "Roger That" Instrumental

Rob has been holding it down for his homeland for many years and has collaborated with everyone from Reef The Lost Cauze & Slaine to Memphis Bleek and Selah. Rob who previously made history by being the first Irish M.C ever to appear in XXL Magazine was delighted with the response to his performance

"I used to sit in my room and listen to Westwood and dream of being on BBC when I was a teenager and record all the performances, I heard Biggie on the station and nearly broke the rewind button and I knew I'd get on there someday"

Rob is embarking on a UK & European tour with long time collaborator and friend Memphis Bleek on his first solo tour without Jay-Z in the fall and is continuing work on his new album "Kell's Kitchen" which will feature a host of US and UK talent.

Stressmatic of The Federations Drops New Album on Aug. 24

From RBC Records:

Stressmatic of The Federations Drops New Album on Aug. 24

After having a major hand in the creation and expansion of the Hyphy movement, Stressmatic from The Federation decided to take a different approach in his creative development. The end result of this new approach being Stress rebranding himself as 1st Place and preparing his new album, “House Shoes & Dickie Shorts” available August 24th.
Taking a new approach in his music, 1st Place includes rock elements into his tracks while still using his Bay Area swag on the mic. And the response has been nothing short of outstanding as his first three mixtapes have amassed nearly 50,000 downloads.
Poised to make a dent with the first single from “House Shoes & Dickie Shorts” the party anthem “Super Drunk” is already receiving spins [along
with multiple other 1st Place songs] on the radio program “Skratch N’ Sniff”. With “Skratch N’ Sniff being syndicated in nearly 50 affiliates throughout the US, “Super Drunk” proves to be potentially become a summer sleeper hit.
With additional cuts like “In A Band”, “On Tour” and “My Cadillac”, 1st Place’s gravitation toward the rock lifestyle proves nearly complete.
It’s no wonder Stress coined himself as 1st Place….where else would he end up?
“House Shoes & Dickie Shorts” available August 24th.
