RighteousFury-DeadEndHipHop

With only a couple of days to go until the release of the sophomore album by Kansas base MC Matt Maddox, renowned Stateside online magazine Dead End Hip Hop are the latest to run the rule over “Righteous Fury”

Their contributor Samuel Odunsi Jr pays tribute to the essence of the album which is “hearkening back to the earlier days of hip hop that boasted raw lyricism over everything else” and concludes If you miss that raw, old-school hip hop sound I strongly recommend you give this 19-track project a listen. It’ll leave you more than satisfied You can read the entire article HERE

Artists such as Matt Maddox have retained a global market over the years as while many of us remember the sound of decades gone by, new generations not as readily exposed to it on the network channels have discovered the classics in clubs and the internet. For them, it’s “new”, and has qualities not as prevalent elsewhere. Hip Hop and rap music has developed and diversified over the years as happens with every genre. Those who draw from the elements of the Golden Era are not themselves stuck in the 90’s. They have developed that style to the contemporary version they produce today. Everything comes from somewhere, there are differences, one thing is not another, but neither is one thing necessarily “better”than another – the public pays its money & takes its choice.

It’s thanks to artists such as Matt Maddox and many more the world over that a younger generation realize they have a choice

The news piece summarizes “Matt Maddox grits his gnashers and strikes down with ‘Righteous Fury’, blood vessels busting over street sweeping fanfares, tear-blotted/folk-fuelled beats and hook ups with Tragedy Khadafi, Sicknature, Vanderslice and Reef The Lost Cauze going against one another in some sort of thugged out gym.
