Contributor Delphina Scott spoke with him about the new album and the recording process in the studio, his thoughts on artists’ growth and development, his views on the recent debate on whether “Hip Hop is degrading society” and the clear definition between the specific genre and others, self sufficiency in the human condition, the public’s backing of buying artist releases and what factors within hip hop he would change today.

RighteousFury-SubbaCultcha

British online multi genre music magazine Subba Cultcha took time out recently to speak with American rapper Matt Maddox who released his new album “Righteous Fury” on 25th February

The ex Guerilla War Tactix member, originally out of Long Beach California but now living in Kansas spoke on the recording process and transition from his debut album “Asylum Artistry”, the writing process and lyrical content, his influences and the publication also asked him about the specific motivation behind the tracks Work, Sick & Tired and No Country for Old Men.

The feature, written by Ben Bradford, opens with a snapshot review summarizing “It’s a 19 track album but boy does it whiz by. Admittedly at first it took me a few listens to realise the power and the cleverness of this album. But he manages to sound angry, hurt, sad, confused, clever, and insightful and often all at the same time.” and can be read in full HERE

The album is available through Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music internationally in digital and physical CD formats, from a wide range of online stores such as iTunes, Amazon, UGHH.com, CD Universe, Barnes & Noble and many more.

It was also a year which saw him on set appearing in a new upcoming Simon Baker film and spend many hours in the lab recording a series of releases for the year ahead.

The first of these is his new Verbal sWARdz EP which releases on 14th April. Mainly self produced, the 10 tracks include features by Sean Price, Kyza, Skriblah, Triple Darkness and on this new Daniel Taylor produced joint Millennium, there’s a welcome appearance by Organized Konfusion’s Prince Po.
