The release has received an extensive level of coverage from publications around the world, the latest review published by Hip Hop Dependency in the United States

A full endorsement of the lyricism, rhymes & beats on display opens with “From the instant you hear the first cut. you are both engaged and threatened by what you hear….He has thrown ‘today’s hip hop’ on it’s head and as a listener you can not remove the headphones” as the review goes into the finer points behind the key elements of the release, before summarizing “Each thump of the snare and each phrase uttered is a constant reminder of what hip hop should be in this day and age. Righteous Fury is an album that serves a matter of retribution for anyone who has devalued what hip hop is today.

There are a few Youtube channels set up as review platforms for hip hop & rap albums, some providing more detailed coverage than others. The Underground Vault based in Canada is one which does go more in depth with their reviews, having clearly taken their time to listen through an album on more than one occasion and then provide a very well explained formed opinion, usually lasting 10 – 15 minutes

Such a review was published last night for the new Matt Maddox album “Righteous Fury” which releases tomorrow, 25th February on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music.
