DJ Slim, aka Tom Clover, is the editor of UK online PopCulturez

Longtime fan of that classic hip hop sound, he is the latest to review Melanin 9’s new album “Magna Carta” which releases to the public on 3rd December

A typically in depth review by Slim compares the feel of the album to the Golden Era and the wordplay and lyricism of Wu Tang, Mobb Deep and Nas with that true UK traditional flow style representing real stories from the street.

While fans of the Wu-Tang Clan will certainly find much to latch onto here, Melanin 9 also brings the power of UK crews like Terra Firma to bear, making this an impressively accomplished debut album” concludes the review

The Guestlist Network is a multi genre online and physical publication, distributed free around London every month

They carry news of all forms of music releases, interviews, videos, events and also report on what’s happening from around the UK

They have just made the debut album by Melanin 9, “Magna Carta”, their “Album of the Month” courtesy of a review by freelance journalist Oliver Pickup, and the review is live now on their website as well as due to be carried in their physical paper

Not for the first time, some loose comparisons are made with Nas, The Pharcyde and Wu Tang, to be expected given the heavy influence The Golden Era has had on this incredibly talented young emcee.

With mellow beats and forceful rapping about gritty street stories, Melanin 9’s Magna Carta is an important release setting out his own lofty ambitions” concludes the review which you can read in full HERE
