King Kapisi ft. Mr Thing ‘Down With The King’

Written by on June 9, 2014


Kapisi has teamed up with beats producer Si-Res (The Side Steps Quintet / Harbour City Electric / Young, Gifted & Broke) creating this ear-gasm scape for you to enjoy coupled with the turntable wizardry of one the UK’s top ranking DJs, Mr Thing (former member of UK Scratch Perverts).

Kapisi states “Mr Thing was over in NZ for a HUDGENZ gig at Auckland’s waterfront club spot, Goldfinch. He popped over home with DJ Hudge (TI2TB Crew, UK) and lay down some cuts. Being a DJ myself, I have been a long time fan of Mr Thing and his crew, it’s a privilege to have the brother on board, he is a God in the scratch DJ world”.

Also adding her talents to the track is the luscious vocal layering of Teremoana Rapley, a stalwart of the NZ Hip Hop scene, both on and off stage for close to three decades.

Down Wit The King! is the seventh single and video release off the forthcoming Kapisi album, “Hip Hop Lives Here”.
