Hopefully 2014 will be as good as 2013 for touring hip hop artists to the UK and Europe, and this line up announced for early next year certainly indicates a promising start.

Redphone Records, Seven 13 Entertainment & Deep Concerts Media have come together to present a new tour featuring Queensbridge vets Nature & Blaq Poet, Detroit’s next name to watch out for (& younger brother of Royce da 5 9) Kid Vishis, and current Hawaii resident by way of Long Beach southern California Matt Maddox.

Also on tour will be DJ Mickey Knox who mixed Nature’s mixtape Ashtray Effect 2 earlier this year. As the tour name suggests, Matt Maddox celebrates the release of his new album “Righteous Fury” in good company, as Blaq Poet gets ready to release his new album Blaq Death, & Vishis prepares to launch a new mixtape shortly ahead of a new official album due in 2014. Next year should also mark the long awaited new studio album from Nature

The tour is in the early stages of organizing, with 4 dates already confirmed :

Barcelona 18th February
Madrid 19th February
Tenerife, Canary Islands 20th February
Zarragoza 21st February

UrbanElite PR are assisting Red Phone & DCM and are pleased to advise that dates are still available for Europe & the UK, whether before the dates in Spain or in the 2 weeks after.

MagnaCarta-InSpirels

In-Spirels Magazine is a London based lifestyle online magazine covering music, fashion, hair & beauty and much more, with the focus being on those who inspire others and act as positive role models via their achievements.

Recently, the publication’s Taytula Burke interviewed Melanin 9 for their “1 2 Watch” feature.

They discuss his new album “Magna Carta”, what acts as his main motivations, his thoughts on hip hop generally and the journalist picks up on his approach to writing :

If you haven’t guessed by now, Melanin 9 is not your average ‘money cash hoes’ type of spitter. His name alludes to the fact that he has a deeper way of thinking than your average guy on the corner……

Speaking of genius, I think there was a hint of that going on during the composition of Magna Carta. The LP has a throwback ‘diggin’ in the crates’ kind of vibe; so if you are bored of the monotonous computer generated sounds around, you’ll love the jazzy soulful tones and ‘real hip hop’ beats that M9 flows effortlessly over…..

If you are into British hip hop, this guy should definitely be on your playlist. Melanin 9 already has a solid international fanbase and I can only see Magna Carta helping the numbers to increase.

Its a really well put together piece by the magazine, a good insight to the artist’s thoughts as well as analysis of the album itself. Read it in full HERE

The album is available on iTunes and the CD version can be bought directly by mail order via http://m9ether.bandcamp.com

MagnaCarta-UKHH

One of the longest running online platforms for British Hip Hop, UKHH.COM, took time out just before the new year to sit down with London’s Melanin 9 and speak with him on the new album “Magna Carta” which they have also reviewed in the same feature.

In the exclusive video interview, M9 speaks on his album, addressing the political, economic, personal & religious subject matter. He also speaks on how this album took his biggest effort to date in putting together in terms of concept and recording, and how the name Magna Carta relates to the overall theme, to liberate the people from from the shackles, help elevate them from the various pressures under which they live. He also gives appreciation for the public’s support on buying the album, new fans and old, and he finishes by spittin some freestyle barz to camera.

Check the full review & interview HERE

Magna Carta is available to buy digitally on iTunes now, and also available in physical CD format direct by mail order from http://m9ether.bandcamp.com

MagnaCarta-RapReviews

Zach Gase, contributor to US online RapReviews, is the latest to cast his eye over the new album “Magna Carta” by London’s Melanin 9

M9 is a skilled wordsmith, he pairs together syllables that work well together, and the things he raps about are of social importance

Scoring a very creditable 7/10, the UK emcee has consistently impressed with his trademark lyricism and wordplay, even with those who’s own preference may lie outwith the 1990’s Golden Era tinged influence in the beats and rhymes.

The full review can be read HERE
Check out the sounds now, via the videos “Organised Democracy”, “White Russian” ft Roc Marciano and the album snippet stream first featured by Bonafide Magazine :
