Hot Property from Reading guested on the WOT Show on 30.1.14 and played live in the studio with Keith Woodhouse. This is the first half of the show.
We are Hot Property, a group hailing from Reading Berkshire which consists of Esa Kwame (Rapper,Songwriter), Yassah Yaks (Rapper,Songwriter,Engineer and Producer), Shock (Rapper,Songwriter) and Teaks (Singer, Songwriter).
We formed Hot Property in the year 2007. With similar musical interests and similar situations, it only made sense to form Hot Property. With Yassah Yaks’ technical know how and ability to make amazing music, Esa Kwame’s genius lyrical ability, Shock’s phenomenal energy and delivery and Teaks’ soulful vocals, we knew that together we would bring something special to the music scene.
We have released a number of e.p’s since forming, along with our latest release ‘Re-visited’ (a collaborative project with Nate Prophet). We have released two mixtapes, the 1st being ‘Summer Madness’, the 2nd ‘Pre Heated’, and we are in the process of creating our 3rd mix tape (a collaboration with DJ Syrax) which we hope will be our best yet. We have featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra as the unsigned track of the week (27th Jan-2nd Feb 2014) and performed at numerous local shows and festivals, including Oxjam 2013. Alongside this we are always taking on new projects, sometimes separately and with other artists.
We gain a lot of influence from Aqua Livi who is our father and a fellow musician, from personal life experiences and the current state of the world and events within it. Other influences include; So Solid Crew, The Fugees, Eminem, The Beatles and The Wailers. We are also influenced by many hardworking local unsigned musicians who are trying to reach the same goal as we are.
You can find our music and videos including collaborations and solo projects on our Youtube channel ‘Hot Property Tv’. Keep a look out for many future projects coming from us, along side some homegrown talent that will feature. We hope you enjoy our journey and our music.
