The album was one of UK hip hop’s standout releases of 2012, and the amount of press coverage in the UK and overseas is testament to the appreciation of the quality of lyricism on display.

MagnaCarta-InSpirels

In-Spirels Magazine is a London based lifestyle online magazine covering music, fashion, hair & beauty and much more, with the focus being on those who inspire others and act as positive role models via their achievements.

Recently, the publication’s Taytula Burke interviewed Melanin 9 for their “1 2 Watch” feature.

They discuss his new album “Magna Carta”, what acts as his main motivations, his thoughts on hip hop generally and the journalist picks up on his approach to writing :

If you haven’t guessed by now, Melanin 9 is not your average ‘money cash hoes’ type of spitter. His name alludes to the fact that he has a deeper way of thinking than your average guy on the corner……

Speaking of genius, I think there was a hint of that going on during the composition of Magna Carta. The LP has a throwback ‘diggin’ in the crates’ kind of vibe; so if you are bored of the monotonous computer generated sounds around, you’ll love the jazzy soulful tones and ‘real hip hop’ beats that M9 flows effortlessly over…..

If you are into British hip hop, this guy should definitely be on your playlist. Melanin 9 already has a solid international fanbase and I can only see Magna Carta helping the numbers to increase.

Its a really well put together piece by the magazine, a good insight to the artist’s thoughts as well as analysis of the album itself. Read it in full HERE

The album is available on iTunes and the CD version can be bought directly by mail order via http://m9ether.bandcamp.com

London’s Secret TV are an online magazine mixing filmed interviews, reviews, performances and views covering a broad spectrum of subjects from Film, Art, Music and more with a healthy focus on new talent

They are the latest to review Melanin 9’s new album Magna Carta which is on general release from the 3rd December, although pre – orders of CD versions can be placed via http://m9ether.bandcamp.com and will be delivered by 25th November

The review is another in appreciation of his lyrical content, wordplay and diversity of production.

Pointing to Nas’ “Illmatic” as a reference point for the overall concept, the review concludes:

Melanin 9’s honesty and lyrical prowess shines through, proving that with a fresh beat, deep lyrics and talented delivery, you can be as ‘conscious’ as you want. The message doesn’t detract from the music, and the music doesn’t detract from the message.

It’s ideology and medium in perfect harmony.
