Run the Roads 2 Exclusive!!!

Well after a hectic morning with photo shoots and the usual magazine shenanigans, we had the delightful opportunity to get an exclusive listen to the forthcoming second instalment of the Run the Road compilation series.
As you know the first Run the Road featured the UK’s biggest artists. The likes Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Roll Deep, Kano, D Double, Riko, No Lay and just about everyone who’s big featured. Selling pure copies with sales easily hitting the 20k+ mark, the Run the Road name is not only respected on and off the UK’s streets but also worldwide.
679’s London offices were busy as usual (being label to Kano, Mike Skinner, Plan B and all), and when the first track went on the plush stereo system we knew straight away round two had arrived. The MC bias grime-led follow-up features big production from all your favourites. We can exclusively tell you that JME’s seriously serious ‘Serious’ Remix has made the final version (yes the same track that’s available in the promo at selected HMV's with every purchase of the Kano album). With the rest of the tracks as soon as the ink on the contracts has dried we can tell you who is officially on number two, so hold tight, we’ll hit you with that breaking news first.
In the meantime check for more info. And if you don’t own the compilation, go and buy a copy to bide you over. [Note to reader, the pic used is from the RWD cover shoot for Run the Road 1 (December 2004). It is not related to the forthcoming version].
