Addressing the comparisons between commercial and underground or “traditional” hip hop, there is an acceptance of inevitable divergence while still maintaining the importance of upholding those traditions.

In effect, to educate a younger generation that there is more to hip hop than the imagery and representation typically served as the daily diet by mainstream media. Frost also discusses the role sample clearance issues played on the emergence of various sub-genres, before ending the interview on an optimistic note for hip hop’s future given the apparent upturn in interest and passion by a new generation for the classic sound and traditional elements.

SoulonFire-PopCulturez

UK based online magazine PopCulturez covers a wide range of interests including music genres rock, pop, country, r&b,hip hop and subjects such as sport, politics, tv, concerts….in other words news on the popular culture of the day.

They are the latest to cast an eye over the new album by rapper ethemadassassin, one half of the LA based duo Veteran Assassins most associated with North Carolina though has also worked out of New Jersey and Ohio at various times of his career.

“Soul on Fire” is his 3rd solo studio album, following on from the 2008 release “Tomorrow Never Comes” which included the video for Walk My Shoes as seen on UK stations MTV Base, Flava TV and others coast to coast across America. The current album is more auto biographical depicting his early days and the fashions, sounds and sights of the Nineties, while bringing things up to date of where he is today. Soul laced tracks like “80’s & 90’s” & “Can’t Get Enough” will be recognizable to older heads whereas fuel injected bangers like “Elements”, “Sparta”, “Tiger Blade” and even the latest bonus joint “H.T.G.” brings out the grittier side to this Emcee.

The PopCulturez review reflects on it, opening “he has something that many strictly battle-focused rappers lack; he can craft real songs too.” and in closing “Sure to please fans of 90s-style hardcore hip-hop from the likes of D.I.T.C., E offers his own take on the streets while demonstrating that, as an MC, he is not to be taken lightly.
