RighteousFury-SoundparlorReview

Following on from their recent interview with the Kansas based MC, American online music magazine Soundparlor reviewed his sophomore album “Righteous Fury” which releases 25th February on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music

Drawing from his origins in Long Beach southern California, the album reflects his musical influences in terms of classic hip hop with a mix of the more raucous approach of a Rage Against the Machine. The review picks up on his own substantial contribution to the album and the mindset behind it:

It’s a deep collection–19 songs–yet comes in at just around an hour, meaning Maddox favors quick hits rather than extended jams. And this preference suits his heavyweight, aggressive lyrical flow.” while acknowledging the production and features from artists such as Tragedy Khadafi, Reef the Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, Nemesis, Sicknature of the Snowgoons, C Lance of Jedi Mind Tricks, the UK’s Edd Bundy and many more, including the turntablism of DJ TMB
