Ever since the song “Coolie High” dropped in 1996 I’ve been an ardent fan of the group Camp Lo. Once I heard their début album “Uptown Saturday Night” the following year, I’ve always felt that their style was refreshingly different. The duo’s fusing of abstract lyrics concerning sex, […]
Bishop Nehru along with a few other Rappers of his generation, are finally proving that lyricism is preferable to radio-friendly production. If you’ve heard Bish’s mixtapes in the past, then you’ll probably be a fan, and if you’re someone like me who thought his EP with MF DOOM […]
This time last year, arguably one of the greatest works of musical satire was released, but peculiarly it wasn’t acknowledged as being the razor-sharp take-off it so obviously was.
