Almost exactly a year ago, Genesis Elijah released his collaboration album with UK production duo Krate Krusaders “Before I Was Famous”.
Not the type to hang around, on the 1st of January 2011 he released the first of what would be many new videos and internet singles, all of which can be seen at his youtube channel “GenesisElijahTV”. He also released his mixtape “I Aint Even Charging Bruv” while working on his new forthcoming album.
The consistency of output increased over recent months as he got himself a new video camera and put a series of freestyles and singles together, released something new almost every 2 – 3 weeks, the most recent of which is this new video for “My Truth” which is taken from a new EP “Painkillers & Pilkington” (a reference to An Idiot Abroad’s Karl Pilkington)
Appropriately, on My Truth, he samples dialogue from Pilkington’s colleagues on the show Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to spell out his motivation and thoughts.
The Brixton MC, now based in Watford, is easily one of the hardest workin in the game.
