about

RHINO's new EP "The Leopard Dilemma" sees the British born, French based producer returning more closely to his Hip Hop roots. Blues samples mix seamlessly with boom bap drums, heavy bass lines and touches of both electronic and trap music blur the lines between old and new school beats. This creates the setting for some of the best MC's around to flaunt their rhymes.

The English duo Too Many T's, talk "Dreams" with their unique, high energy flows, France's best group of expats, ASM, Miscellaneous (Chill Bump) and Youthstar (Chinese Man Records), create an undeniable hip hop banger on Gaijins, Mattic and Justin Percival, become introspective on Cycle Complete and RHINO was even given permission to sample Ray Charles's vocals for the track "Going Down".

RHINO began making music with his first Akai MPC sampler at the age of 14. He had began DJing two years before that and bought his first MPC using the money he made selling mixtapes. This was at a time when people still actually bought tapes. Since then he has performed hundreds of shows all over the world, he created the successful projects ASM & Jukebox Champions, collaborated with a huge list of music industry heavy weights from MF DOOM to Chinese Man and become well known as an Akai MPC specialist. The Akai MPC, the legendary drum machine samplers that shaped the sound of Hip Hop, now sponsor RHINO and he even teaches masterclasses in music production and sampling with them. He's made music for TV, Adverts, Movies, and even ghost produces songs for other artists. The Leopard Dilemma is his first release with his new label Galant Records, nouvelle entité hip hop de Jarring Effects.

So, after all that, has he changed? "Almost everything about my life has changed" he replies, "but that is the leopard's dilemma, life is so different from when I began, the world is so different, but no matter what I do, I can't stop myself from making Hip Hop. A leopard can't change his spots".

Track Name: Dream Ft. Too Many T's
CHORUS
This one time man I (had a dream)
Not that big but I (had a dream)
Make fun of me but I (had a dream)
about writing little raps and taking overseas (come on now)
work real hard yeah (had a dream)
Luther Kind he (had a dream)
Big Steve jobs he (had a dream)
Now I’m rapping to my mic but listen to me
This one time man I (had a dream)
Not that big but I (had a dream)
Make fun of me but I (had a dream)
about writing little raps and taking overseas (come on now)
work real hard yeah (had a dream)
Luther Kind he (had a dream)
Big Steve jobs he (had a dream)
Now I rap on stage listen to me

Listen to me, little boy twelve,
big bro took daddy Kane off the shelf
lay it on the decks, insane I can tell,
that flow that beat had me under a spell
Now i ran to it anytime I’m needing a help
dope, rhythm you can do it as well
Just shell XL, get the tape in the mail,
pew pew, done deal, celebrate good health

Woah I woke up one day like what the fuck was that tape mate
it was called what? Hip Hop man,
I’ll have some more of that put it on my plate mate
man i’ve been lost till now
just bopping round as I hop in town with the boys
I was lost but now, oh no not now,
i got a dream and I want to make noise

CHORUS
This one time man I (had a dream)
Not that big but I (had a dream)
Make fun of me but I (had a dream)
about writing little raps and taking overseas (come on now)
work real hard yeah (had a dream)
Luther Kind he (had a dream)
Big Steve jobs he (had a dream)
Now I’m rapping to my mic but listen to me
This one time man I (had a dream)
Not that big but I (had a dream)
Make fun of me but I (had a dream)
about writing little raps and taking overseas (come on now)
work real hard yeah (had a dream)
Luther Kind he (had a dream)
Big Steve jobs he (had a dream)
Now I rap on stage listen to me

Listen to me, don’t mind if you don’t though
cooking up a killer gig even if you’re a no show
Zero fucks given like the middle of a polo
I’ll be gigging it at home in a gold kimono
yo, kettle just boiled do you want another brew
too many motherfucker now i’m in the mood
so get out the room, get out the broom
Stuffs getting smashed on our path to the moon
now don’t get me wrong i’m easy
and I know that it might sound cheesy
just focussed on it like an eagle
doing it for me and my people
Been around the map, still fellas want to ask,
why I do it, why would I want to spit?
cause we dope and we sick,
two kids from the sticks,
had a dream and it goes like this


CHORUS
This one time man I (had a dream)
Not that big but I (had a dream)
Make fun of me but I (had a dream)
about writing little raps and taking overseas (come on now)
work real hard yeah (had a dream)
Luther Kind he (had a dream)
Big Steve jobs he (had a dream)
Now I’m rapping to my mic but listen to me
This one time man I (had a dream)
Not that big but I (had a dream)
Make fun of me but I (had a dream)
about writing little raps and taking overseas (come on now)
work real hard yeah (had a dream)
Luther Kind he (had a dream)
Big Steve jobs he (had a dream)
Now I rap on stage listen to me
Track Name: Gaijins Ft. Miscellaneous (Chill Bump) - ASM - Youthstar
Miscellaneous (Chill Bump)

Yo, Rhino, ASM, Youthstar, Chill Bump, Come On.

Let’s keep it funky, Rick James,
Life’s a freak and I get brains,
Exchange fluids, till I get some dick pains,
then paint the sheets with semen and shit stains,
I, been building my name, for as long as I’ve been in the game
I got a one dollar bill in the frame, I’m getting paid,
Y’all on Minimum wage, in your small limited lanes
I’m Lebron James, I am Mike and you’re DeAndre
Who want play, and who can ball ? prove me wrong, hey !
I’m loony Kanye, feuding on Sway,
You can all hate and boo me off stage. screw what y’all say.
I screw these groupies on Yay,
Sprinkle lines on their titties then I do he salt-bae
I turn your city to a fuming Pompei
My verse is gritty I could do this all day, mother fuckers
Who’s up next? Huh ?

FP (ASM)

God, damn this is nasty, packing that weight that’ll damage a taxi
fatter than ass cheeks, caliber that of Kardashian back meat,
More like a Rhino with Elephantiasis,
Swell up with niceness,
fellow beat makers catch serial crises,
while checking my side kick in televised hi-jinxs,
ey yo,
Hell of a likeness to priceless,
Elegant highness of Gaijin’s
Tinnitus ringing, the syllables swinging,
till billions and billions of children be singing it,
Killing them, like Killian, be flipping with the scissor kick,
can I get a “Dinninit”,
Internet, anyone, bigger soon than everyone,
Kill the groove and let it run,
send her through and get her done,

GREEN (ASM)

Send them in, one fine line up for your eminence
If any display irreverence, expulsion for good from the tenement,
Lovecraft supreme, the benevolent,
and he’s been up in the lab assembling,
Cold raw, both my mum’s and pop’s and Biggie foresaw
that it’s all about the Benjamins,
that’s resonant, from the sediment,
tapped into the source and it never ends,
unlimited steam from the void, ha,
part Pink Floyd, part Sigmund Freud,
Analyst mode, guzzle gallons of gold,
FP in the cut get the cannabis rolled,
Rhino the unanimous G.O.A.T,
Jade Amulet wrote that to nourish all the cancerous souls,

YOUTHSTAR

Man a snake charmer, rap farmer in the game,
got no whip but I'm from the city,
where the people put the llamas on the tram and train,
I get brain off ya bitch man the girls insane she needs taming,
I ain't claiming I'm facts stating, its aggravating, don't be hating,
it's on that bitch that you be dating,
better off fuckin with some rave ting
With the face down arse up bullying the gash ting
splatter in the face and when her pussies getting battered,
yeah I know she's kinda backwards but to me that doesn't matter,
man ill ram her with my hammer faster than a fucking cheetah,
I'm like he-man banging she-ra in a castle like a leader
With my sword up in the sky and she be screaming out for Youthstar
I'm the muthafuckin double timing rhymer in this bitch
With the ASM and Rhino, Miscellaneous my click
And anybody wanna bring it with these Ex pats,
Suck my….
Track Name: What U gonna Do Ft. HYM
"What you gonna do" x 4 - scratch

I don't want to ever have to think about what we did, ever again
I'm keeping it together but I really don't think I can, I can't pretend
You know what we're guilty of

I know You Know
Just what I know
so how can I go
Wondering if you'll do the same to me
Where can I go
With nothing to show
I'm just saying no
hoping you'll never do the same to me

CHOURS x2
Women women women
Women women women
where is your home (Hoping you'll never do the same to me)

"What you gonna do, What you gonna do?" - scratch

I know what you did to every other, ain't no way you got my trust
You know I can't no, You know I can't no
I can see all through your tone, whenever I leave you alone
I know the answer to who's really there so

I don't even ever want to think about what we did, ever again
You want to be my lover when we really ain't even friends
I can't pretend
you know what we're guilty of

I know You Know
(I know you know)
Just what I know
(just what I know)
so how can I go
Wondering if you'll do the same to me
Where can I go
(where can I go)
With nothing to show
(with nothing to show)
I'm just saying no
hoping you'll never do the same to me

CHOURS x2
Women women women
Women women women
where is your home (Hoping you'll never do the same to me)
Track Name: Going Down Ft. Rhyme Time
INTRODUCTION

I’m going down
to the river
to drown myself
oh baby

CHORUS
I’m going down
To drown myself
because my baby
is loving someone else
I’m going down
yes to drown myself
because my baby
is loving someone else
now you know that’s why I’m going down

VERSE 1
I know this feeling so well, not feeling so well
this heartache, this old hell, trying to find my old self,
still, bracing for a cold spell, snow fell
about to book a suite at the Heartbreak hotel
in a minute I’m a turn into the shining
cause these days are pretty cloudy I can’t see a silver lining
calls it like I sees it, keeps the focus on surviving
cause these folks will try to tell you it gets better but they’re lying
Reminiscing over arguments and past wrongs
for the first time I'm relating to those sad songs
it’s for the best, put your glasses on
what good is my half, when my better half is gone
(baby, well I've got to go)
I’m a head into the river I’m a take a swim
I’m a sink into the water while the record spins
tonight I’m going down

CHORUS
I’m going down
To drown myself
because my baby
is loving someone else
I’m going down
yes to drown myself
because my baby
is loving someone else
now you know that’s why I’m going down

VERSE 2
Minutes into hours and hours start pushing limits
cross me over with the quickness I couldn’t predict your pivot
Put an end to the future that we were dreaming about
now I’m feeling home sick without leaving the house
Staying haunted by the past it’ll poison me too
found the rest of our memories on the soles of your shoes
So i’ll dive into the river, while i’m holding the rock
down until the last bubble rises up to the top

naw,
I’m swimming, my arms still spinning,
you thought you were winning but this is just the beginning
My hearts still beating you can hear it in the drums
said enough is enough and I bet it toughens me up
feeling better than ever I pull myself to the ground
you left me all alone and you thought I would drown
but the river ain’t nothing without you weighing me down


Way down in my heart,
way down in my heart!

CHORUS
I’m going down
To drown myself
because my baby
is loving someone else
I’m going down
yes to drown myself
because my baby
is loving someone else
now you know that’s why I’m going down
Track Name: Cycle Complete Ft. Mattic & Justin Percival
Wrote letters till my hands hurt
value my work, wear intelligence just like my shirts
i’m different thinking to the core gods,
That's why it hurts,
seen the landfills of people trying to be the first
thanks for the lesson
smif-n-wessun how my blessings burst
gift and a curse, we enjoying life but see the hearse
practicing, rehearse, like the pastor rolling out the church
sheep guiding, we just here to put in all the work
so let it work
to your day off, they are, you off, but i’m on
don’t stop, won’t stop, most stop, is this wrong
breaking of momentum, moments for my air sniffing,
take a deep breath for vision, it’s imagery for listening,
Listen

Why don’t you? I pray you can,
the cycles that gave
but I know
What's then, is now, built up, then teared down,
buried in my dreams,
falling, break out, conclusions, freak out,
the cycles completed,

They ask me how it sounds
or how you know
arrival in your town
let’s have a sit down and see what else we found
I’m set to go, in a circle round and round,
complete the cycle
They ask me how it sounds
or how you know
arrival in your town
let’s have a sit down and see what else we found
I’m set to go, in a circle round and round,
complete the cycle

Two shots

just like a code, programming my instincts long ago
my cycles my own

two shots, two spots, both hot, double pop
trouble got, more plans, no fans, I got
two shots, two spots, both hot, double pop
trouble got, more plans, no fans, I got
infurstructure, sharp to cut ya,
eyes up to sky culture
thoughts wrote you, ghost floater
house holds stories touch ya
Must of, turned cold, reload, unload,
unload, reload, explode, implode,
your soul, new soul, bank rolls, death tolls,
Metros, so broke, life goes so fast,
i’m last, till the end, till the end, till the end

Just like a code, programming my instincts long ago
and I know,
though my cycles completed, it just won’t let me go

They ask me how it sounds
or how you know
arrival in your town
let’s have a sit down and see what else we found
I’m set to go, in a circle round and round,
complete the cycle
They ask me how it sounds
or how you know
arrival in your town
let’s have a sit down and see what else we found
I’m set to go, in a circle round and round,
complete the cycle
