Sup undergrounders!!! Whew! Today London Underground was blessed in receiving an advanced master copy of the new album by Phili N’ Dotz, aptly titled  Phil N’ the Dotz. Let me tell you right now this album is a total classic. Straight out the gate  Phil N’ the Dotz comes with a vicious intro and doesn’t stop bringing the goods till the last song ends. Only to leave you wanting more. Phili is ferocious with the rhymes and tears into each beat with a blistering fervor. Dotz not to be out done, comes with his rhymes tick for tack with Phili  (which is no easy feat) his explosive word play is truly spectacular. These two are perfect match behind the mic.

This album features a slew of some of the most talented acts in UK hip hop, in both features and on production.

London Underground was always a fan of Phili and followed him with his previous legendary group Phi-Life cypher. Which I totally rated. Knowing Phili was mad skilled, the question remained how would he come out after Phi-Life cypher had ended in 2012. Could he top his prior output of quality? Which he had previously set at a very high standard already? Well rest assured a few songs into this album and it was quite clear. Phili has grown from his previous experience and had become even better for it. Not only did he show he hasn’t lost a step. It seemed somehow he has improved and tightened his flow (yea hard to believe it could get tighter)and is more creative and relaxed. Sounding more ate ease and natural. Making it seem effortless.  His chemistry with Dotz is unparallelled and these guys are a natural fit. With dope wordplay, Phili N’ Dotz  bounce bars back and forth like Michael Jordans crossover in his hey day.

These two are perfect match behind the mic.

Dotz is a grizzled battle veteran and current member of Don’t Flop(Rap battle league) Also he won a championship in 2013, his second year with Jump Off (rap battle league) Which sports  a year-long tournament where he won over twenty battles. In 2012 he came in second. Dotz recently dropped 9 track EP The Country Bumpkin’s Drunk Singing Skunk Binge . Also he just released his new collab with Flo. Called the Flotz EP.
