RighteousFury-SoundparlorReview

Following on from their recent interview with the Kansas based MC, American online music magazine Soundparlor reviewed his sophomore album “Righteous Fury” which releases 25th February on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music

Drawing from his origins in Long Beach southern California, the album reflects his musical influences in terms of classic hip hop with a mix of the more raucous approach of a Rage Against the Machine. The review picks up on his own substantial contribution to the album and the mindset behind it:

It’s a deep collection–19 songs–yet comes in at just around an hour, meaning Maddox favors quick hits rather than extended jams. And this preference suits his heavyweight, aggressive lyrical flow.” while acknowledging the production and features from artists such as Tragedy Khadafi, Reef the Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, Nemesis, Sicknature of the Snowgoons, C Lance of Jedi Mind Tricks, the UK’s Edd Bundy and many more, including the turntablism of DJ TMB

RighteousFury-Blacksheep

Long Beach rapper Matt Maddox, now based in Kansas in America’s midwest, releases his sophomore solo album “Righteous Fury” on 25th February via Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music.

He follows in the international theme of his original Guerilla War Tactix crew with features and production from both sides of the Atlantic, including C Lance of Jedi Mind Tricks, Vanderslice, the UK’s Edd Bundy & turntablist DJ TMB, Tragedy Khadafi, Reef the Lost Cauze, Sicknature of the Snowgoons, Nemesis, Skammadix, King Magnetic and many more.

UK online publication Blacksheep Magazine have reported on authentic hip hop with superior beats and lyricism for many years, and their writer Andrew Kay gave “Righteous Fury” a test drive to see how it delivered

A 4 star review which dissects the production, lyrical content & flow, particularly his comparison of the legacy left by the true greats to some contemporary representation of the genre in “No Country For Old Men” is summarized “Maddox might come from the Mid-West, but don’t let that judge it or fool you- he’s the real deal: a post recession MC that says something, keeps your head rocking, your brain ticking and giving rap some injection of purpose. Not a moment too soon!
