RighteousFury-Blacksheep

Long Beach rapper Matt Maddox, now based in Kansas in America’s midwest, releases his sophomore solo album “Righteous Fury” on 25th February via Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music.

He follows in the international theme of his original Guerilla War Tactix crew with features and production from both sides of the Atlantic, including C Lance of Jedi Mind Tricks, Vanderslice, the UK’s Edd Bundy & turntablist DJ TMB, Tragedy Khadafi, Reef the Lost Cauze, Sicknature of the Snowgoons, Nemesis, Skammadix, King Magnetic and many more.

UK online publication Blacksheep Magazine have reported on authentic hip hop with superior beats and lyricism for many years, and their writer Andrew Kay gave “Righteous Fury” a test drive to see how it delivered

A 4 star review which dissects the production, lyrical content & flow, particularly his comparison of the legacy left by the true greats to some contemporary representation of the genre in “No Country For Old Men” is summarized “Maddox might come from the Mid-West, but don’t let that judge it or fool you- he’s the real deal: a post recession MC that says something, keeps your head rocking, your brain ticking and giving rap some injection of purpose. Not a moment too soon!

SoulOnFire-SBTV

The UK’s leading online youth broadcaster SBTV was set up by young entrepreneur Jamal Edwards a few years ago while still in his teens. For overseas readers, he built the site up from filming freestyles of new artists all over London, throwing them up on Youtube, and the view rate was literally massive.

Fast forward to today and he still supports the UK scene but also has content from some the biggest international artists around. When he’s not mixing with Virgin owner Richard Branson or Prince Charles, he’s appearing on BBC Breakfast TV promoting his new book. It has been quite a phenomenal rise for a brand now valued in the millions on the stock market. If you didn’t know the name before, research it!

His in house team also provide news, features and reviews, and the site’s Fiona Guest is the latest to run the rule over the new album by ethemadassassin. Most associated with Greensboro NC, the now LA based rapper released his third solo album “Soul on Fire” on Tuesday 17th September.

The review is headed “a potent mixture of lyrical agility and social consciousness” and is summarized “Soul On Fire is a mature drop from a seasoned MC, with a breadth of experience and skill under his belt. If you’re ready to hear the emotional realness of what E terms his ‘book of life,’ give it a listen.” Read the whole review HERE
