It is available on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music worldwide in digital and physical CD formats from a wide selection of online stores, and today The Rap Up premiered the official audio stream of the entire album

They also provided a snapshot review of the album which includes direct links to stores selling in both formats and is summarized :

Matt Maddox is the kind of guy who spits over booming drums, samples from The Godfather score and dramatic strings, and who does so with a voice that sounds like he chews rocks for breakfast. The kind of guy who’s had his full of a lot of the guys that have been dating hiphop and doesn’t like what they’ve made her do. If you decide to have a go at her, you’d better come prepared, ’cause Matt Maddox is the kind of daddy greeting potential suitors with a shotgun by the door. The kind filled with a Righteous Fury.

The new Matt Maddox album “Righteous Fury” is the highly anticipated follow up to his debut “Asylum Artistry” and releases Tuesday 25th February on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music.

It’s been a long time in the making but has enjoyed an impressive international media response, reflecting the skilled wordplay and powerful delivery of the Kansas based MC. The ex Guerilla War Tactix member has called on some well known names in the world of hip hop to join him on the album.

Producers including Nemesis, Skammadix, C Lance (Jedi Mind Tricks), Sicknature (Snowgoons), and Vanderslice have provided some neck breakin beats over which Maddox and featured artists such as Tragedy Khadafi, Reef the Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, Adlib and Burke the Jurke have delivered the lyrical fire. A healthy dose of quality turntablism is in effect throughout courtesy of fellow Red Phone labelmate DJ TMB.

He has just launched the video trailer for the album on Youtube, and the soundtrack used is the track “The Get Back” ft King Magnetic. Check it out
