As is inevitable these days, we’re aware that some free download torrents have appeared on the internet. While piracy is a sad fact of life these days we would take this opportunity to warn the public that our I.T. consultants checked those which have appeared to date. They found that the mp3 files had been corrupted and that the links also contained malicious software, or Malware viruses, so please consider carefully before downloading from such sources.

The magazine’s contributor Taytula Burke opens her account “this accomplished MC has a knack of delivering his message at bullet like speed, with the next hard hitting track waiting eagerly in the chamber.” and then dissects the key points of the album, the motive behind it and the influence the authentic sound of hip hop has played in its construction – unsurprising given his origins in Long Beach California as part of the international “Guerilla War Tactix” crew.

The review summarizes “Righteous Fury is a valiant effort if the aim was to get rap in a chokehold and drag it back to its heyday. Well worth a listen.” and can be read HERE
