The new Matt Maddox album “Righteous Fury” is the highly anticipated follow up to his debut “Asylum Artistry” and releases Tuesday 25th February on Red Phone Records / Seven 13 Music.

It’s been a long time in the making but has enjoyed an impressive international media response, reflecting the skilled wordplay and powerful delivery of the Kansas based MC. The ex Guerilla War Tactix member has called on some well known names in the world of hip hop to join him on the album.

Producers including Nemesis, Skammadix, C Lance (Jedi Mind Tricks), Sicknature (Snowgoons), and Vanderslice have provided some neck breakin beats over which Maddox and featured artists such as Tragedy Khadafi, Reef the Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, Adlib and Burke the Jurke have delivered the lyrical fire. A healthy dose of quality turntablism is in effect throughout courtesy of fellow Red Phone labelmate DJ TMB.

He has just launched the video trailer for the album on Youtube, and the soundtrack used is the track “The Get Back” ft King Magnetic. Check it out

RighteousFury-Sampleface

With just over a week until release, UK online magazine Sampleface are the latest to review the new album “Righteous Fury” by Kansas based rapper Matt Maddox

The magazine’s contributor Taytula Burke opens her account “this accomplished MC has a knack of delivering his message at bullet like speed, with the next hard hitting track waiting eagerly in the chamber.” and then dissects the key points of the album, the motive behind it and the influence the authentic sound of hip hop has played in its construction – unsurprising given his origins in Long Beach California as part of the international “Guerilla War Tactix” crew.

The review summarizes “Righteous Fury is a valiant effort if the aim was to get rap in a chokehold and drag it back to its heyday. Well worth a listen.” and can be read HERE
