VIDEO: Leddie MC ft Alex Bailey - Hunting the Hunter


Leddie MC has been setting the North East alight for a while now.
From her days with Northern Lights, to then becoming a duo with fellow former member Smoggy, to her increasingly important role as a solo performer. 

Hip Hop in the UK has always been centered on male voices from London so whether you like her music or not its highly impressive that a female voice from the North is gaining such attention.

Leddie has always been a technical MC and to hear her tell it she's almost started to dumb down to expand her fan base but there is still plenty of wordplay in there that would fly over the head of the casual listener who might hear her tracks on the radio because there's a singer on the hook.

The video for 'Hunting The Hunter' video, by Escape Route Media, brings a distinctly British urban feel as Leddie drops verses that stick a stiff middle finger up at the establishment.

'Hunting the Hunter' is available NOW on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.

Check out the video below and get the album Raise A Glass HERE


Keep up with Leddie on Facebook and Twitter and watch out for an appearance from her on C75 Live owner Cuban Pete's upcoming project 'West Mids 2 North Beast'

Pre-Order the new C75 Live Sneaker


Fed up of paying premium prices for plastic or 'knitted' kicks put together by kids for the low?
If you are going to spend your hard earned money on higher priced footwear then why not support a Hip Hop entrepreneur with a quality product instead.



The UK's Cuban Pete has been in the game for a minute and started out in the custom sneaker/clothing scene and doing digital artwork/hand illustration as C75 Designs.

Then he started taking his music more seriously by releasing albums and collaborating with the musical artists he had done artwork for previously, all under his C75 Live imprint.

Now the C75 Designs name has been dropped and the artwork and music has combined under the C75 Live umbrella.
Art + Music = C75 Live


Now C75 Live is starting to hit the ready made sneaker market by collaborating with Alive Shoes to produce the 'C75 Live' sneaker.

All custom shoes are handmade by master Italian craftsman from pristine Italian leather. Each designer pair is a one-of-a-kind, combining handcrafting tradition, quality and modern style for a product that’s as live as the C75 brand.

This hi-top sneaker is inspired by futuristic themes. It features suede side and toe panels, and the brand logo inside the tongue and on the strap ankle belt.

Pre-Order your pair HERE




Enjoy a completely custom and top-quality collector’s edition packaging featuring amazing print quality, handmade Italian construction and a solid magnetic clip. This design piece adds great value to an already exclusive pair of custom made shoes.

Sos Bishop - Peace To The Hardcore


Sos is from New York City, Where He grew up in the Bronx. At a young age he listened to all kinds of different music. 

His pops played in a band called Exit-9 so when he was younger he used to go in the studio with them.
Along with his cousins rapping, DJ’ing and dancing helped Sos realize that music is what he  wanted to do so he started perfecting his craft. He loved Kane, Rakim, Krs, Slick Rick, Brand Nubian, Epmd, Tribe, Nas, Jay-z, Biggie, and Black Moon.

That's was the birth of Sos Bishop. When he was younger he moved around so he has a little bit of everywhere and a little bit of everything in him. His moms had him in South Carolina for a while, then Delaware, so he knows how life is out the city. In a way this benefited his craft. The city feels his music as well as the people from his block because no matter where he was he never lost his NY style. 

The streets came in and people started rapping about what they were doing so his team was living like rappers; ice, money, females, and cars. So when you hear him talk about things lot of things he did or saw first hand. He mixed a time when you had to have style with the real shit and that's the Sos Bishop that stands before you now!

The Midwest native drew musical inspirations from the Golden Era of Hip Hop to Alternative Rock, and everything else in between that he resonated with.

Making a home for himself in Queens, NY, Brando built his career from the ground up with his AR Ent.. team.

Fast forward a few years later, Brando is now actively working with Grammy nominated, multi-platinum producer, Tarboy Williams. Currently, the two are in the midst of finishing Brando’s new album, set for a Summer release.

Blog Posts 101 - A Guide

Cuban Pete here. I post on several music blogs and people send me things to post.
Some people are managers and some are the artists themselves but a lot of them don't realize what information is needed for someone like me to do a good blog post that's also beneficial for them. So here are 5 things that should really be basics.


1 EPK
An Electronic Press Kit is something every serious artist should have and should include photos, links, a bio, and contact info.

2 Product Info
If you've gone to the trouble of getting promo in the form of a post its presumably because you've got a product to sell such as a single, album, video, merch, etc.
In that case you need to supply links to that product.
If its music then something like a Soundcloud, Bandcamp, or YouTube link where you can get embed codes and people can stream or watch directly from the blog post.
Some information about the product itself (features, how it came about, etc) is also a good idea and can be added to info about the artist that's been pulled from their bio.
Really you should have all this info in the email you have sent out to your contact list.

3 Pictures
Good quality, as professional looking as possible, photos of the artist.
Album/single artwork.
Photos of merch.

4 Links
Now they know all about you and like what they've heard or seen hopefully they'll want to keep up with your other projects, or even interact with you. In which case you need to supply social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and/or links to you or your labels website..

5 Share Share Share
There is no point, especially if you've paid, in getting promotion if nobody sees it. Share the links on your social media. If its a really good review for example add it to your press page on your website. If you can help bring more visitors to the site then you are more likely to get on it again in the future.


And that's pretty much it!

I'm sure there'll be some things Ive forgotten to mention, or even things you might just like to see more of yourself, so feel free to comment on the post.

New Music: Cuban Pete x Reddtune - The Dopeness


A celebration of the return of Hip Hop
2018 was a great year for Hip Hop. Although it was mostly clickbait rap that ruled the commercial airwaves while the media continued their assault intent on dividing the Hip Hop community the amount of dope Hip Hop that dropped made it undeniable that dope lyrics and beats still matter and are still in effect.

Cuban Pete contributed to this resurgance by dropping his acclaimed 'Renaissance Man' project in July and rounding off the year with his 'Capital C Capital P' album that hes still promoting. Starting off the new year right Cuban reminds heads what a great year 2018 was as well as dropping a few jewels about the divisiveness battle that continues in the game.

ReddTune is a producer from London, UK, that has been doing his thing since 1986. 'The Dopeness' is taken from his production ep 'The Sickness' that also dropped at the same time. You can check out his beats for sale HERE and he also does a radio show you can check out HERE.

Stream 'The Dopeness' below and download HERE
Look out for the track on Spotify and other streaming platforms shortly and add it to your playlist.
