DJ Slim, aka Tom Clover, is the editor of UK online PopCulturez
Longtime fan of that classic hip hop sound, he is the latest to review Melanin 9’s new album “Magna Carta” which releases to the public on 3rd December
A typically in depth review by Slim compares the feel of the album to the Golden Era and the wordplay and lyricism of Wu Tang, Mobb Deep and Nas with that true UK traditional flow style representing real stories from the street.
“While fans of the Wu-Tang Clan will certainly find much to latch onto here, Melanin 9 also brings the power of UK crews like Terra Firma to bear, making this an impressively accomplished debut album” concludes the review
