VerbalSwardz-DeadEndHipHop

Latest to review the new EP “Verbal sWARdz” by north London rapper & producer Iron Braydz is US online Dead End Hip Hop

They have been a regular supporter of this release, publishing posts about video releases and the audio stream, and their contributor Samuel Odunsi Jr has a strong interest in hip hop with the classic elements of meaningful lyricism and superior wordplay combined with quality beats & production

Picking up on the major influence Wu Tang has had on the artist through the years, the review reflects the mic skills on display as well as Braydz own production style :

I am a growing fan of the hip hop scene in the UK, including the battle rap league Don’t Flop, but I am always held in awe at the speed at which these rappers spit their lyrics. Iron Braydz is no exception. But like any good lyricist, Braydz isn’t just spitting for the hell of it…..All the bars said on this project by Braydz and the respective artists featured does indeed make this a verbal war….If you are fan of quality lyrics and that grimy RZA-inspired production sound, you need to listen to Verbal sWARdz.

Released on 14th April and featuring Triple Darkness, Sean Price, Prince Po, Kyza, Phat Kat, Skriblah and DJ Shortee Blitz, the 10 track Verbal sWARdz EP is available now from Iron Braydz’ BANDCAMP

RPL-UKHHreview

Having already performed an exclusive freestyle video for leading British online hip hop site UKHH.COM some weeks ago, their contributor Ethan Everton has also now reviewed the album Reality Provoking Liberation which released on 28th October.

The article is yet another endorsement among many publications who have covered the release in the past couple of months, opening “Potentially the rawest truths that you’ll hear on record for the remainder of the year, the philosophies behind the wordplay in Apex Zero’s almost entirely self-produced début album Reality Provoking Liberation is if anything a reflective experience for any listener.

It is in fact a very in depth appraisal of the album, delving into the finer points of the tracks and is summarized “As stated at the beginning, this is more than an just album to muse too. It’s intention is to bring about a new mentally aware consciousness that’s being prohibited in ways unimaginable.
