Fresh in UK stores today, the August edition of Echoes Magazine, for many years regarded as the “black music essential monthly”.
In this month’s edition, a two page feature has the magazine’s Sunil Chauhan speak with Ohio’s Copywrite about his new album God Save The King (Proper English Version) which releases on Man Bites Dog Records on Tuesday 7th August 2012.
Headed, “God Save International Collaboration”, the interview initially touches upon the international flavour of the album given the many UK and American artists and producers who feature alongside Copywrite, and also acknowledges that the names involved are highly regarded in the independent hip hop community.
Copywrite also speaks about recording a new Megahertz album, gives an in depth insight to his much discussed “switch” to Christianity and how that sits with his involvement in hip hop, his various musical influences…..and his meeting with a fat banker who turned out to be a huge Souls of Mischief fan!!
