The UK’s multi genre online Subba Cultcha has undergone a revamp recently, and just relaunched with a whole load of news, reviews and audio clips from the world of hip hop, rap, dance, and various forms of “urban” music.
They are the latest to review Melanin 9’s new album “Magna Carta” which releases 3rd December 2012
Contributor Ben Bradford opens “Melanin 9 draws you into his deep river of words, strong, powerful and meaningful words” and analyzes the subject matter in some depth. Little surprise as the London based emcees has been regarded as one of the UK’s most skilled lyricists for some time, a long time student of the “Golden Era” now putting his own take on it for 2012.
Concluding on his involvement with Triple Darkness, he ends “Both Melanin 9 and Cyrus Malachi it seems are determined to take hip hop into a meaningful and dark world of its own. With no compromise”
You will be able to see his Triple Darkness sparring partners Cyrus Malachi and Phoenix da Icefire at his album launch party on Friday 23rd November upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1, where they will also be joined by DJ 279, iron Braydz, Genesis Elijah, Rewd Adams, Logic and Skriblah Dangogh. 8pm – 1am, £5.00 entry, an 18 + over event
