There’s no doubt that Magna Carta is one of the most soulful, heartfelt and honest pieces of music Ive heard in a long time” begins the review

Its this aspect of Melanin 9 as an artist, combined with his wordplay and lyricism that has established him as one of the most respected UK emcees, and has earned much media attention to this release

The review summarizes :

The support I’ve seen M9 receive is a testament to the quality of Magna Carta, and his decision to be truthful with his music and the direction of this album. I will be using this album as a reference to U.K Hip-Hop for many years to come, as certain elements of the music are unrivalled by M9’s peers
