Genesis Elijah is one of the most respected names in the UK Hip-Hop scene and has been since his emergence in 2005 when he released the critically acclaimed album Deh Pon Road which featured Hip-Hop heavy weights Klashnekoff & Skinnyman among others. The album was given rave reviews with the single ‘Jah Bless’ finding a spot on the BBC’s 1xtra play list. In 2006 Genesis Elijah released his mixtape ‘The Industrial Revolution’. This featured chart topper Sway and former Dip Set member Tom Gist. This went on to sell over 20,000 copies as well as getting international air play. In 2007 Genesis Elijah hooked up with Electro legends Atomic Hooligan featuring on they’re album ‘Sex, Drugs & Blah Blah Blah’ and then went on to go on tour with them across Europe as well as the festival circuit including Glastonbury and Glade. Later in 2010 Genesis Elijah released a collaboration album with production duo The Krate Krusaders. The album had widespread coverage on the net and garnered Genesis Elijah a whole new fan base. Also that year he featured on Charlie Sloths album The Black Book with their video ‘Game Over’ getting over 100,000 YouTube Views. In Oct of 2012 Genesis collaborated with the UK’s leading Youth Broadcaster SBTV and released an EP called ‘I Ain’t Even Charging Bruv 2’ which featured Dream Mclean, Nutty P, Swiss, Loudmouth Melvin, Teeza and more. Once again a Genesis Elijah release was called a classic.

Genesis Elijah continues to make a name for himself as one of the most hard working and consistent artist in the game.
Rapper Coops has gone from Chillin’ to counting his Blessings as he drops Lost Soul mixtape. Not many people can brag that their first ever performance was at London’s o2 opening for Nas, but that’s because they are not Coops – the laidback rapper who is earning so many stripes you would think he was sponsored by Adidas. It was just last year the 23-year-old won Choice FM’s Breakthrough Competition, and since then Coops has steadily risen through the ranks; going from just “another rapper” to one worth watching. Attracting international attention in the form of a shout out from Vibe magazine, Blessings was described as: “A gritty rap track that could’ve been born of the Queensbridge Projects.” Not bad for a north Londoner who is a relative newcomer to the game. His popularity probably lies in the fact that while most rappers are screaming turn up, Coops is bucking the trend with songs that form the perfect soundtrack for kicking back with Mary Jane to. His boom bop beats, interspersed with soul, jazz and lyrics to ponder or bob your head to has seen him twice feature in GIITTV’s Eargasm selection. Coops released his album God Complex earlier this year capturing audiences of all generations.
