Here's the second installment of Plastician's Interviews for Rinse.FM's Youtube channel. We're especially feelin this one, since these two characters came over to NYC together around 2006 to play Drop The Lime & Star Eyes (Syrup Girls) release party for their 'Shotgun Wedding' mixtape, at the defunct venue Rothko in LES. (Dubstep Forum post). So we definitely go a ways back with these guys, when Plastician was Plasticman! See what the OG Plasticman & Merkleman discuss.

One of the godfathers of grime crews, Ruff Sqwad, may finally be releasing their much rumored, comprehensive compilation. Word from these legends is that the "White Label Classics," comp is "at the presses." Between members such as Tinchy Stryder, Terror Danjah, and classics like, ‘Pied Piper’, ‘Lethal Injection’, ‘Misty Cold’ and ‘Anna,' we can't wait. Check out all the details over at Fact Mag

Ladies Night Freestyle 1Xtra
Found this the night Jubilee and I stayed up ’til 5 a.m. watching grime vids on YouTube. After watching a bunch of really disappointing F64s with over-hyped dude MCs, we arrived at this… Instant Reload!!! Quadruple threat status: Lady Chann with the sickest ragga chat, NoLay talking bare sense, Lioness getting all Sacajawea on that mic, and Leshurr by far my favorite: rapping faster than Twista with a baby panther style. So tuff! And if you like to watch British people rap as much as I do, then you can also check this Lord of the Mics freestyle with Wiley and Kano and this Just Jam with D Double E & Jammer. Fireman ting.
