London emcee Melanin 9 has become of the UK’s most respected lyricists since releasing High Fidelity and 144,000, working with Triple Darkness and his live appearances at the renowned End of the Weak events and opening for artists such as Styles P, Immortal Technique and Wu Tang. Clearly, his prowess is nothing to be sniffed at. His reputation for conscientious rhymes and intelligent wordplay has resulted in an ever-growing fanbase in the UK and overseas, striking a chord with those who appreciate the “Golden Era” of hip hop. With that in mind, you’ll want to hear Landslide, the new single of his upcoming album Magna Carta (out 3rd December on Red Snow Records). Produced by Anatomy and featuring cuts from Evil Ed, it follows on from the launch of his recent video for Organised Democracy.
Look out for more special releases and media coverage over the coming weeks and months, as Melanin 9 also puts together final plans for his album launch at Vibe Bar in London on 23rd November to mark the release. Preorders of the CD version of the album can be placed via his site (link below) and those will be delivered a week ahead of the general public release as a mark of appreciation to his loyal support. How kind.
