British Publication Wordplay Magazine exists in both online and printed formats, and cover hip hop news, reviews & features, as well as articles on Graffiti, Fashions, Breakin’, Reggae and generally represent hip hop culture across the board.
Their contributor Delphina Scott spoke with ethemadassassin recently, the rapper based out of Los Angeles but most associated with North Carolina having begun performing and recording there since the 90’s. Now one half of the Veteran Assassins duo, he has just released his 3rd solo album “Soul on Fire” on his own R Steel imprint.
In the interview he speaks on the making of Soul on Fire, his own history in hip hop and his views on how his new album fits within the current climate of a switch back of focus to artists with a more traditional sense of lyricism and production.

The album does have elements which are a throwback to the Golden Era, but that fits with the tracks where he is reflecting on his life and the sights & sounds of the time in joints such as 80’s & 90’s & Can’t Get Enough. This is mixed with more contemporary production on tracks such as Elements, Tiger Blade and Fight Music, as the album acts as a biographical document, a journey from then til now
