RighteousFury-Face2Face

Long Beach rapper (currently resident in Kansas) Matt Maddox sat down with American online publication Face 2 Face Magazine recently to discuss his early days, starting out in Long Beach and then moving to Hawaii and the reasons behind that where he speaks openly about a number of family issues

As an artist who first picked up the pen at only 10 years old, he discusses the influences west coast and east coast hip hop artists have had on him, whether Dre, Snoop & NWA, or Nas and Wu Tang, and how a fusion of styles has led to him developing what he describes as a mix of “hardcore street rap & underground”

He discusses the transition of the politically focused content of his first album Asylum Artistry to a more personal perspective in the current release “Righteous Fury” and his desire to “empower people – not just be another number”

Interesting insight to the man, and you can read the interview HERE

He released the aforementioned “Righteous Fury” through Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music on 25th February, and it is available from a wide selection of international online stores in both digital and physical CD formats

It boasts production from Skammadix, Nemesis, Sultan Mir, Engineer, C Lance, Sicknature & Vanderslice, turntablism throughout by fellow Red Phone labelmate DJ TMB, and features Tragedy Khadafi, Adlib, Reef the Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, Burke the Jurke and many more, including British Emcee Edd Bundy.
