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.

This latest coverage comes at the beginning of the week which finally leads up to the long awaited album launch party event. It takes place this Saturday, 7th December, from 8pm – 1am upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, Shoreditch, London E1 6QL.

Apex has been busy in recent weeks fine tuning his set which will be performed with a live band. Also performing on the night will be Caxton Press & Triple Darkness member Iron Braydz. Itch FM’s DJ A. Gee will be on the 1’s & 2’s with Peaches the regular Hoochinoo host.

It’s advised to bring photographic I.D. for the event in line with most venues’ entrance policy.

It’s sure to be one of the London’s hip hop events of the month, so definitely not one to miss for all hip hop heads in the area

Also look out for the release this week of a brand new track “Transcendental Emcee”, not on the album but especially recorded to mark the event.

The Guestlist Network is a multi genre online and physical publication, distributed free around London every month

They carry news of all forms of music releases, interviews, videos, events and also report on what’s happening from around the UK

They have just made the debut album by Melanin 9, “Magna Carta”, their “Album of the Month” courtesy of a review by freelance journalist Oliver Pickup, and the review is live now on their website as well as due to be carried in their physical paper

Not for the first time, some loose comparisons are made with Nas, The Pharcyde and Wu Tang, to be expected given the heavy influence The Golden Era has had on this incredibly talented young emcee.

With mellow beats and forceful rapping about gritty street stories, Melanin 9’s Magna Carta is an important release setting out his own lofty ambitions” concludes the review which you can read in full HERE

One of the UK’s leading online platforms, The Hip Hop Chronicle, are the latest to endorse Melanin 9’s new album “Magna Carta” with a massive 9.5/10 rating

Long known for world exclusive interviews and live footage, and sharing of some of the best UK and international releases and videos, The Hip Hop Chronicle has had a big year in its development, with a growing team of contributors now covering album reviews and a range of other articles. This in addition to their ongoing partnerships with some of the biggest broadcasters on satellite and internet tv.

In this latest article, there is a genuine appreciation of this highly talented Emcee’s lyrical skills, subject matter and wordplay, all in the finest traditions of hip hop.

It’s a highly impressive analysis by Natasha Ferguson of the tracks on offer and their meaning which again reinforces his established position as one of the UK’s most respected wordsmiths. It also perhaps indicates a gradual shift in the tectonic plates back to the true essence and artists of this calibre
