DJ Magazine Single of the Month – Melanin 9 ft Roc Marciano “White Russian”

MagnaCartaWhiteRussian-DJMag

In the January edition of DJ Magazine in UK stores now, the Hip Hop Singles Reviews page places Melanin 9’s “White Russian” featuring Roc Marciano as their “Money Shot Single of the Month”

Written by the magazine’s Neil Kulkarni :

So pleased M9 is finally making the leap from mixtapes (if you ain’t heard High Fidelity or 144,000 you ain’t been reading this page enough!) to actually releasing an official album : this is the first single from “Magna Carta” and is just astonishing. A slow burning groove over which RM drapes some engrossing rhymes, crepuscular keys and smoky cymbals riding the groove deep intro your cortex. Essential

The rating’s all the more impressive when considering the company it keeps on the page, including 9th Wonder & Buckshot, Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson, Craig G, Edward Scissortongue, Piff Gang, Pacewon & Neek the Exotic ft Bumpy Knuckles. Check the video for it

Meanwhile, US online Premiere Hip Hop are the latest to give the album Magna Carta their full endorsement

MagnaCarta-PremiereHipHop

The review by their editor in chief, Sunez Allah, is extremely in depth looking into the subject matter behind the tracks.

Summarizing “Magna Carta ultimately is a fulfilled debut that like melanin, an infinite measure of our supremacy, cannot be merely gauged by the mere shade of the Black, Brown or Yellow skin, the country, city or ghetto of the MC or the cover of an album. It must be heard and understood by engaging in its depth and seeing the life of Hip Hop expressed by our people.
