MagnaCarta-UKHH

One of the longest running online platforms for British Hip Hop, UKHH.COM, took time out just before the new year to sit down with London’s Melanin 9 and speak with him on the new album “Magna Carta” which they have also reviewed in the same feature.

In the exclusive video interview, M9 speaks on his album, addressing the political, economic, personal & religious subject matter. He also speaks on how this album took his biggest effort to date in putting together in terms of concept and recording, and how the name Magna Carta relates to the overall theme, to liberate the people from from the shackles, help elevate them from the various pressures under which they live. He also gives appreciation for the public’s support on buying the album, new fans and old, and he finishes by spittin some freestyle barz to camera.

Check the full review & interview HERE

Magna Carta is available to buy digitally on iTunes now, and also available in physical CD format direct by mail order from http://m9ether.bandcamp.com
