The piece reads “The robust scriptures of Iron Braydz map out the path from Shaolin to North London and flip soul samples and voodoo fumes into street-spattered brain matter on ‘Verbal sWARdz’. The Triple Darkness delegate has his bare knuckle dawn raids viewing reality wide-eyed supported by an impressive pack of Phoenix Da Icefire, Prince Po, Kyza, Sean Price and Phat Kat. Bruising.
