On Friday night SME’s DJ TP was invited to take part in a DJ battle at the launch night of Le Scratch at XOYO. Le Scratch is a fresh monthly event which mixes the hottest Hiphop, Dubstep & Bass influenced music with live art installations from hyped London illustrators & artists.

And the moment he turned his back to the crowd and proceeded to scratch with his hands behind his back, will go down in XOYO history; unbelievable tekkers!

Due to the feature over running, TP won the battle only playing half of his allocated set time; an achievement in itself! So for those of you who were there and want to hear the rest of the set, and for those who missed out on the night; below you will find the full set for both stream and download.

Diggy Simmons has been named as one of XXL’s Freshman of 2011 (11 of the hottest prospects in HipHop/Rap right now) and rightfully so. Granted; he has the best mentor any aspiring rapper could ask for in the form of Run DMC founder Rev Run – his father, but he hasn’t rested on his laurels.

He has the witty lyrics of someone twice his age and as you can see from the freestyle below, he flows effortlessly.

Here’s what Diggy had to say on being selected for the Freshman Cover; “Being here means a lot. It’s always been something I thought was real cool, as a new artist to be on, and it was something that I wanted to be on this year. When I heard [I made it], I was like, ‘What?’ You know, that’s something I was freaking out over, because I was putting in all this hard work, and to see it, you know, actually see the things come to past my ways, it’s just crazy. There are certain goals that people wanna reach, and being a new artist, I’m sure—well, hip-hop artist—I’m sure being on the Freshmen [cover] is one of them. And that was something that I definitely wanted to do. I mean, being here is crazy.”
