RighteousFury-Face2Face

Long Beach rapper (currently resident in Kansas) Matt Maddox sat down with American online publication Face 2 Face Magazine recently to discuss his early days, starting out in Long Beach and then moving to Hawaii and the reasons behind that where he speaks openly about a number of family issues

As an artist who first picked up the pen at only 10 years old, he discusses the influences west coast and east coast hip hop artists have had on him, whether Dre, Snoop & NWA, or Nas and Wu Tang, and how a fusion of styles has led to him developing what he describes as a mix of “hardcore street rap & underground”

He discusses the transition of the politically focused content of his first album Asylum Artistry to a more personal perspective in the current release “Righteous Fury” and his desire to “empower people – not just be another number”

Interesting insight to the man, and you can read the interview HERE

He released the aforementioned “Righteous Fury” through Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music on 25th February, and it is available from a wide selection of international online stores in both digital and physical CD formats

It boasts production from Skammadix, Nemesis, Sultan Mir, Engineer, C Lance, Sicknature & Vanderslice, turntablism throughout by fellow Red Phone labelmate DJ TMB, and features Tragedy Khadafi, Adlib, Reef the Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, Burke the Jurke and many more, including British Emcee Edd Bundy.

Check out the full audio stream for it

Currently working on new projects and planning various tours including a visit to Europe due in the autumn, look out for him launching his new video for “Work” any day now. Keep up to date with his progress on twitter @MattMaddox82

RighteousFury-DeadEndHipHop

With only a couple of days to go until the release of the sophomore album by Kansas base MC Matt Maddox, renowned Stateside online magazine Dead End Hip Hop are the latest to run the rule over “Righteous Fury”

Their contributor Samuel Odunsi Jr pays tribute to the essence of the album which is “hearkening back to the earlier days of hip hop that boasted raw lyricism over everything else” and concludes If you miss that raw, old-school hip hop sound I strongly recommend you give this 19-track project a listen. It’ll leave you more than satisfied You can read the entire article HERE

Artists such as Matt Maddox have retained a global market over the years as while many of us remember the sound of decades gone by, new generations not as readily exposed to it on the network channels have discovered the classics in clubs and the internet. For them, it’s “new”, and has qualities not as prevalent elsewhere. Hip Hop and rap music has developed and diversified over the years as happens with every genre. Those who draw from the elements of the Golden Era are not themselves stuck in the 90’s. They have developed that style to the contemporary version they produce today. Everything comes from somewhere, there are differences, one thing is not another, but neither is one thing necessarily “better”than another – the public pays its money & takes its choice.

It’s thanks to artists such as Matt Maddox and many more the world over that a younger generation realize they have a choice
