gen long pic

  Good news Hip Hop heads! The new release from Genesis Elijah just landed. ‘Private Moments in Public‘ the latest full length album from adept, long time London, emcee Genesis Elijah is finally out!  Trust me people it was worth the long wait,  Even though his last full length album was in 2005 (‘Deh Pon Road’ ). Not to say hes a slouch as hes put out at least nine solo projects since 2005 (plus various features with many of UK’s finest, always holding his own. You can believe Genesis Elijah has never been one to rest on his laurels. (See link below for previous projects and releases)

Previous projects from Genesis Elijah

  For those that are new to him. I would describe his bars as heartfelt, honest, reflective, introspective, pure in their very straightforward essence. . His passion for music is high and easily felt by fans looking for credible verses and skilled wordplay.  For longtime Genesis Elijah fans I would say in my estimation that as an emcee he has grown in leaps and bounds. in both lyrical maturity and life time experience. While some of his earlier offerings and style dealt often with street tales and road narratives they still always were often lined with conscious messages and morales. Always challenging his listeners to think.

Igenesis-elijah-covert seems to me his newer songs and his latest album ‘Private Moments in Public‘ are much more in tune with the everyday struggles most of us deal with daily. From the pitfalls and blessings of ambition, love and appreciation of family, to pressing on past setbacks and still seeking to improve oneself. These themes and more can be found in the sonic quality displayed aptly from Private Moments in Public This album is blessed with beautiful production throughout. The Beats are sick and blend nicely. never overshadowing the emcees spotlight. A perfect blend for ears questing for satisfying head nodders and three dimensional verses. Production credits include vetran beatsmiths Pastor Dutchie, Hirolla, Anabolic Beats, Lindow and Wicker. Also peep the sick posse cut ‘Underground King‘ featuring dope UK all stars Fallacy, Joker Starr, S. Kalibre, Rob Kelly, Reveal, Theme, Cappo, Ramson Badbonez, Iron Braydz (Produced by Pastor Dutchie) Then check out the Fathers Day Video below

    In summation I would say that this is a MUST purchase to anyone searching for deepness in their hip hop. While a bit of a style change from some of his earlier work. I’d say with respect to his previous music (which I also rate highly), this is a nice change of pace for the better. An exhibition in the growth of a real emcee communicating his life and times through sincere lyrics..This is a quality album throughout. Crafted painfully to perfection Private Moments in Public’‘ is a gem for any music collection and will be genuinely felt by most lovers of conscious hip hop.

can b don't sleep art

Yo underground hip hop lovers I’ve got a sick emcee/ radio host to tell you about. From the city that brought you such skilled hip hop greats as ‘The P Brothers, Cappo, Endemic, Joe Buhdha, Stylee Cee, Scorzayzee, and C-mone’.  Straight out of this talented backdrop that is Nottingham, enters dope emcee  Can B. If your new to Can B let me tell you hes no slouch and has been spitting since his school days. The 28 year old up and comer was one third of the group Ill Citizen which released some limited edition joints and also a notably phat digital album release called ‘Pandemic. Ill Citizen played many gigs from 2004 till now but the members have begun to go their own path working on solo projects.

Album Review ‘Don’t Sleep

Ok here we go into the new album ‘Don’t Sleep‘ This record just released and London Underground was fortunate to get to review this. First off this album has heavy production and an eclectic aura to the feel of it. Beats consist of everything off of the sonic spectrum. The listener can expect to hear many different production styles. From electronic Lo Fi, symphonic loops over crispy drums, reggae esque samples, creepy piano over eerie vocals and buzzing, upbeat uplifting pulsating sounds , Jazzy dance riddims, sick beat boxing(from Motormouf), Heavy bass with whining horns over heavy drums, grimy organs, a birdsong chopped and served nice, Spacey keyboards ect… These beats are all over the place. All having their own sound, yet seemingly blending effortlessly together. Meant to be played very loudly in your residential area. Check the production credits, features, and track list on this:

track list dont sleep

 

Can B comes out rhyming with fierceness and tenacity on ‘Don’t Sleep‘. He seems right at home rhyming over a diverse collection of of beats and differing tempos. He reps Notts nicely on ‘Bed of Nails‘ alongside the Grand Imperial Cappo. He excels dropping a introspective verses on ‘Rough‘ with TomG. ‘Don’t Sleep‘ comes in banging, unapologetic to fans of the same old same carbon copy kind of rap going about a lot these days.  No cookie cutter verses or Kinko copied styles. His verses work well over the sonic varying styles of production. Very entertaining to the brain and ears alike.  Even over beat box with Motormouf, Can B is right at home.  ‘Don’t Sleep‘ is a nice grab for any head looking for some new heat. With new fire beats. In the years to come we can expect Can B to continue to improve on his musical journey as an artist. Plus continue to drop bangers. Nottingham is always big in the UK scene and Can B still finds a way to distinguish himself properly from amidst of this skilled pantheon of artists. Overall a nice release full of banging eclectic beats and a solid group of verses to take you on your journey. London Underground would recommends you pick up the free download to ‘Don’t Sleep‘ and enjoy the album.
