Its been an epic journey, but the day has finally arrived

After the initial concept of the album was born during the first couple of months of 2011, and after a very long & winding road in the months which followed, Copywrite’s new album “God Save The King (Proper English Version)” releases today on Man Bites Dog Records

A Stateside version called simply “God Save The King” was released with an entirely different tracklisting in the States in February 2012, however this version took the longest to complete given the massive array of international talent from the UK, United States and Canada who also feature.

Needless to say, the UK media have taken a huge interest in the release over the past few months, with nearly 30 separate magazines either reviewing or publishing interviews (with more to come), djs & online platforms from both sides of the Atlantic jumping all over the various single releases and videos, with further UK satellite tv station support.

Latest to give props to the album is The Hip Hop Village, the people behind which also run 16 Bars Magazine

Also look out for a new video “Ghost in the Machine” featuring London’s Context coming very soon

Copywrite himself is also busy putting together the new Megahertz album, and plans are underway for a European tour taking place early 2013

The album is available on iTunes internationally, and people can check in at www.copywritesworld.com or www.manbitesdogrecords.com for more information

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!!

Latest review of Copywrite’s new album “God Save The King (Proper English Version)” which releases on Man Bites Dog Records on 7th August

This one is in Rago Magazine, run by the guys from Wolftown Recordings, Tricksta & Late.

Those boys have been involved in UK hip hop for many years and consistently been putting out their own products internationally as well as running the magazine, several different blogs and various other ventures. Respect the grind

Here Tricksta pretty much goes in on his assessment of this album!! No holds barred, he definitely gives it the seal of approval :

“Well my friends, it’s like this, if you don’t like something on this album then you are either a hater, deaf or totally lost the plot”

Lol, no messin about in a true West Midlands stylee!!

In the lead up to the release of his new album God Save The King (Proper English Version), which finally has a confirmed release date of 7th August via Man Bites Dog Records, Copywrite took some time out to speak with one of the UK’s leading onlines Hip Hop Kings.

Here he compares the new album with his previous release The Life & Times of Peter Nelson, his working with such a wide range of UK artists & the concept behind the album, his work on the new Megahertz album and which producers he’d be keen to work with in the future and plnas for touring

The album has certainly sparked the imagination of the UK media to date, with coverage in a diverse range of publications including Subba Cultcha, Data Transmission, Blues & Soul, Flavour, K-Mag, Beatnik, British Hip Hop, SBTV, What Culture, Kix, Clash and even weekly entertainment magazine Nuts. Much more to follow

With production from Marco Polo, Bronze Nazareth, Stu Bangas, Vanderslice, Curtiss King & Kount Fif complementing Copy at his best & featured artists such as Royce da 5 9, Crooked I, Seam P, Killah Priest, Roc Marciano, Evidence, Torae, Akala, Mystro, Genesis Elijah, Bigz, S.A.S, Melanin 9, Iron Braydz, Context & Dru Blu, its little wonder that this unique release is thought to be one of the biggest independent hip hop albums of 2012.
