RighteousFury-Sampleface

With just over a week until release, UK online magazine Sampleface are the latest to review the new album “Righteous Fury” by Kansas based rapper Matt Maddox

The magazine’s contributor Taytula Burke opens her account “this accomplished MC has a knack of delivering his message at bullet like speed, with the next hard hitting track waiting eagerly in the chamber.” and then dissects the key points of the album, the motive behind it and the influence the authentic sound of hip hop has played in its construction – unsurprising given his origins in Long Beach California as part of the international “Guerilla War Tactix” crew.

The review summarizes “Righteous Fury is a valiant effort if the aim was to get rap in a chokehold and drag it back to its heyday. Well worth a listen.” and can be read HERE
