Mic Righteous – Honour and Pride

This tunes deep…Its time to rise up! Skinny inspired me to write but I’m more similar to Mic, he writes the the sort of stuff I do. His lyrics are perfect for my taste…


Akala – Bullshit

‘label-owner, and educator Kingslee Daley has made it his life’s work to challenge preconceptions and buck prevailing trends; and he isn’t the sort to allow himself to be fitted into any kind of mould. Breaking down the culture of cliché and stereotype that smothers the genre he loves is a major part of the mission he’s taken on, and gives impetus to this third album of pointed, perceptive hip hop music from the convention-defying emcee.’

This was one the first tunes I remember hearing on my UK Hip Hop trail…

Skinnyman was the first UK rapper I heard whose lyrics focused on the struggle of the British working class. The album (same name as song) gave me a lot of comfort – finally someone was rapping about issues familiar to me. I had been waiting for this album for a long time and it had a massive impact on my life, inspiring me to start writing lyrics as well as getting me into UK Hip Hop (I’d stopped listening to US Hip Hop years before this, simply because I couldn’t fully relate to it)
