Presha J Announces ‘Traveller’s Guide’ EP & Debuts ‘Live For You’ Visual

It’s been two long years since British Hip Hop artist Presha J released his last single ‘Throw It In The Air’, and nearly a decade since his debut EP, Changes, was released in 2008. After taking time away from music for life and to start a family, the London native is proud to be back, with the announcement of his sophomore EP, Traveller’s Guide, which is to be released on October 23 via Writeway Music.

Leading Presha J’s triumphant, no holds barred, return to the music landscape is new single ‘Live For You’ featuring emerging singer-songwriter Leke, and produced by Smylee (Victizzle, Faith Child). Accompanied by thematic and abstract visuals directed by Dvisionaiir, ‘Live For You’ is an upbeat, inspiration and life-affirming opus, backed by thumping drums, an infectious bassline and heavy synths, over which Presha J waxes lyrical about standing firm in his faith.

Speaking about his departure from music, Presha J confesses, “I never meant for there to be such a gap in between my work. I was still creating music while I was planning to get married but I felt that God had other plans and I quickly learned that something had to give”, adding about his new EP that, “I’ve grown up a lot since ‘Changes’, which was more about my testimony. I wanted this new project to take my listeners on a trip from a more mature viewpoint”.

With support from Channel AKA, Capital Xtra, Bang Radio, Kiss TV and Smash Hits TV, early in his career, plus rave reviews and critical acclaim for his Changes EP, Presha J had been hailed as one of the finest and most promising Hip Hop artists in the UK. This comeback record Traveller’s Guide is poised to solidify that early promise and acclaim from years ago, starting with the exciting new offering ‘Live For You’.

Is Mims Making A Comeback? Check Out “The Ski Mask Freestyle” (Visual)

Video Directed by: DriveFilms

It seems to me as though the break is over for the “This is Why I’m Hot” rapper.

Mims follows up his freestyle over Meek Mill’s “Monster” with a visual for “The Ski Mask Freestyle” and  I’m definitely not mad at it.  He’s spittin bars on this and I’ve always liked his mic presence.  The production by MenaceTheDJ is solid and the visual was also well done.

Overall, I’m diggin it and will be keeping an ear open to see what Mims brings to the game in 2015.

VMB Schedule Blog Info


Ralph McDaniels always wanted to showcase the hip-hop that was not being featured in the mainstream.  After about a year of hosting Studio 31 Dance Party, McDaniels got the opportunity to produce a show the way he originally wanted to do it and he appropriately named it – Video Music Box (VMB).  It was not long before VMB’s 6-day, 60-minute public access viewership began to grow far beyond what any of the cable networks had expected.  By 1995, Billboard magazine had recognized and awarded VMB as the “Best Local R&B/Rap Regional Show”.  In addition, VMB was also notably voted as the Top 10 Greatest Hip Hop TV Moments by VH1 in 2003.  By 2005, over 192,000 households per week were regularly viewing VMB.  In 1985, McDaniels became the first to broadcast a hip-hop tour, “Fresh Fest”, on VMB which featured many of today’s hip-hop icons such as RUN DMC, LL Cool J, Queen Latifah, Will Smith, and many others.  It was also through the broadcast of VMB that McDaniels was able to successfully register over 10,000 voters earning McDaniels tremendous respect and accolades throughout NYC.  Now in 2010 Ralph is about to expand and launch Video Music Box Global and present his show to the international Hip-Hop audience who has nothing but love for the Hip-Hop culture.  For more info on 30 years of VMB and upcoming events you can contact us or you can watch the show on WNYC Ch. 25; Cablevision Ch. 22; Comcast Ch. 14/18 on Wednesday nights at 11:30PM, Fridays at 2:30AM, and Saturday at Midnight.
