Seeing out 2015 with a banger, this new “We Walkin’ Cypher” is big on reppin’ the international scene.

Boston duo N.B.S. are joined by Emcee Jackson Turner, originally from NYC and now a joint studio owner in China with Los Angeleno rapper Dan-E. No punches get pulled, all delivering hard rhymes over a bass heavy beat produced in Beijing by John Sun and No Play Entertainment.

N.B.S. have been getting major props this year for their collaboration with Germany’s Snowgoons on the album “Trapped in America”, while in the summer Jackson Turner toured the Far East in support of the release of his “The Foundation” EP.

The animated lyric video has just been released today

RighteousFury-SubbaCultcha

British online multi genre music magazine Subba Cultcha took time out recently to speak with American rapper Matt Maddox who released his new album “Righteous Fury” on 25th February

The ex Guerilla War Tactix member, originally out of Long Beach California but now living in Kansas spoke on the recording process and transition from his debut album “Asylum Artistry”, the writing process and lyrical content, his influences and the publication also asked him about the specific motivation behind the tracks Work, Sick & Tired and No Country for Old Men.

The feature, written by Ben Bradford, opens with a snapshot review summarizing “It’s a 19 track album but boy does it whiz by. Admittedly at first it took me a few listens to realise the power and the cleverness of this album. But he manages to sound angry, hurt, sad, confused, clever, and insightful and often all at the same time.” and can be read in full HERE

The album is available through Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music internationally in digital and physical CD formats, from a wide range of online stores such as iTunes, Amazon, UGHH.com, CD Universe, Barnes & Noble and many more.

Check out the full official album stream. It includes production by Skammadix, C Lance, Sicknature, Sultan Mir, Nemesis, Vanderslice and also features Tragedy Khadafi, King Magnetic, Reef the Lost Cauze, Burke the Jurke, Adlib and turntablism by fellow Red Phone labelmate DJ TMB
