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.

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.

With all that said and a busy independent release on  RE3CO’s  schedule. He graciously took time out to give London Underground and UK hip hop an in-depth interview.

LU 1?) How did you get into hip hop. What would you say was the first “rah” moment you had that sent you down the musical path?

RE3)  It came in stages man. I mean as kid I always felt Fresh Prince and ‘Parents Just Dont Understand.’ For the 1st time I started playing and pausing the cassette,and writing the bars down so i could spit along to it and a few others. Biz Markie, Rakim, Slick Ricky. Obviously I was a fan and heard a lot of soul music. Which played a big role in me liking hip hop get me? I heard a bit of Wu and Kool G but I didn’t really grasp it at that time. I remember hearing Arrested Developments “Mr Wendal” tellin the story of a homeless man and it really changed my life, as I never heard music tackle issues like that and fit in so much info in 3 mins. From then on I actively searched for hip hop. Learning the bars, started goin, sought the backlog of what I’ve missed. Then got into gangsta rap ect. My dad actually showed me Snoops “Doggy Style” ha ha! Then I heard Pharcydes ‘Running’ and I knew I wanted to rap from then. The Fugees ‘The score’ album inspired my first bars. That was my shit! Then I became a student of hip hop mainly Wu and Kool G. Anything that was really lyrical complex stuff. Years later I was so deep into hip hop, that in my head I knew how I wanted to rap and was experimenting but never could patent the formula. It was like some more complex Kool G shit. Then I heard Big Pun’s ‘My Boy” gave me “Capital punishment”. I played beware and the first verse I heard,..blood, I knew at that moment that was how I wanted to do it.That was the moment Ibecame steadfast and obsessed with reaching that level,and I still am.

LU2?) How long did BEASTS OF BURDEN take to come together? What challenges did you face on your debut album? If you had a time machine would you change anything? Now knowing now what you didn’t then.

RE3) Its took me over a year and a half. Would of been quicker but had to put it on hold due to health problems. In that time I recorded 60 tracks. Half wrote another 200 and made at least 800 beats. Bought at least another 50,and slowly, slowly trimmed the best stuff down. Refining it. Until it started becoming a project. It was a big learning curve for me, so I can’t say I’d change anything. I learned so much. The difficulties were obviously I planned an album. Then I grew as an artist and no longer wanted to do a whole album the way I had planned it. During that time I gave up smoking weed due to a brain injury. Later I developed hypothyroidism and that started changing my voice. Which made recording very difficult as it affects the voice, but also it gave me more abilities to record in different tones. As sometimes my voice will be very gravely and other times its lot higher. I had breathing problems and gave up cigarettes as well as drink as I was starting to lose my breath control. Now its better than ever! So I was continuously growing as a person while making this album and that resulted in music that captured different attitudes. At first it was gonna be a social commentary type record. But I feel there’s so much cliché shit in the UK scene now. I wanted to reflect my taste. Sometimes I wanna rap about the system, other times I wanna spit about nice breasts ha ha!

Reeco close up

LU3?) You both spit on the mic and work the production as well on BEASTS OF BURDEN. How did you first start spitting and how did you get yourself into the production angle.

RE3) Yeah I’m an emcee first and foremost. I always had a good ear for beats and samples but had no clue how to make a beat, and had no help around me. I started fiddlin with fruity loops. Its a long story man. Lets just say I got fed up of producers who were either not keepin they word, or goin missin on me, or just not doin thing correctly. In general dealing with other producers became a nightmare 95 percent of the time. So I decided. Fuck it! I’m gonna do it myself. It was a very long process of learning, but my strength  was sample choice and choppin.  So I just got obsessive and kept on….and still doin that. I love it cause it’s another way to express myself. I still got very far to go, but making beats gave me the independence I needed. I can make a song exactly how I want without havin to deal with other peoples bullshit.  One thing I learned is nobody is goin to be a passionate about your work as you are. So its best to take the reins  with as much you can. Saying that though,when I’m working with a producer that’s as motivated as me to the project,then im focused purely on bars. but I cant always get the same chemistry that I get with Doc Diff or Dirty Urch with every producer I try work with.so..Production for me came out of necessity.

LU4?) You’ve got some sick features on BEASTS OF BURDENTesla’s Ghost, Dotz, Theme, Co production from Chemo. How did these sick team ups happen?

RE3)   The grace of god man! ha ha! I knew I wanted the strongest emcees on my project. So I reached out to Theme. He heard of me from my ‘Love and Hate’ track. I think he lives and breathes hip hop and is a real guy. Not some big ego. He was happy to collab once I sent him the beat. He got busy and tore it down and the result was crazy! I’m sure that team up will keep happening. Big up Theme! One of the best emcees in the UK, straight up! With Tesla’s Ghost I heard some people debating about our voices and went and looked him up properly. I was totally amazed how incredible he was. I reached out instantly. Same shit. Tesla had heard ‘Bring it Back” and was down. Same shit just another sick emcee. That’s real hip hop. No big ego just massive talent! I sent him the beat and he came to my studio with the most incredible verse I was kinda lost for words. His voice is definitely my fave in the UK…better then mines! Big up Tesla’s Ghost! When his project lands its gonna shake up the scene for sure. Again another emcee I think that is one of the best in the scene is Dotz.  He’s just incredible. Same shit really. I reached out to him. We had a laugh. I sent him the rough track and he was gassed and jumped on deck. I think Dotz is one of the best up comers man. He can do lots of different styles. He’s entertaining and he’s fuckin funny.  So I had to have him on it. Again no big ego, Dotz just wanted to tear the track up and he did. These three emcees are my fave right now in terms of the new wave of UK hip hop.  So I was so blessed to get all three of them! Chemo? ha ha ha ha ha….so much can be said about Chemo. Amazing talent. Fuckin hilarious,and as an engineer I wanted the most professional album. He seemed like the only choice for me. So at first it was just mastering ect..but in the process he told me he thought ‘I Know was a classic.  I explained to him I  wasn’t sure about the drums and may abandon the track. Chemo changed the drums and then it just added that element that it was missing. I’m humbled to work with all the talent that was on this album.

LU5?) On your new joint BEASTS OF BURDEN How would you describe the album conceptually? What would you want fans like to take away from it after listening.

RE3)  That’s down to the listener. I mean as a dream I’d like to affect people in a good way. Make em feel like they know me. Motivate them. Inspire them and make them laugh. As well as educate them but that’s an ideal. At the least I wanted this to show diversity and honesty, different vocal tones, styles. Just showing a few of the styles I can do. I wanted to hit em from all angles while still being conceptual.I just wanted it to mirror my personality and all the different moods I go through. As for the concept. Basically I’m a big animal and nature enthusiast. I feel like we talk about slavery and bondage like its so bad, but nature and animals are slaves to us. Nature cannot be beat so the same way how we work the animals and nature to benefit us, is the same way the people who control shit work the ordinary human. We are now the beasts of burden!. Working and killing ourselves to help maintain and build a system. That we not only disagree with, but a system that destroys us. We so stupid.  We do nothin. Except when we can’t take it no more we bite and end up being put down or locked up. I could go on for ever about the parallels.

Lu 6?) There’s a lot of controversy about the direction of the UK hip hop scene. How do you see it now as it is? If anything what would you like to see change?

RE3) I got a vid on my channel about this so I’ll try to be brief. NOT EVERYONE HAS TO RAP! We need some managers. Real business men in this scene. Some man power behind emcees. Instead of millions of emcees. So many people in the scene do it for hobby and they over-saturate the scene.  As well as obscure the view of the serious emcees. So many people think that they can only contribute by rappin and truth is a lot people are not good. People are too polite to tell people. You don’t have that in football or anything else. Why rap? Also the fans need to support the scene. Cause its the fans fault that bullshit videos on youtube have 10 million views and the best artist in the scene have under 10k!? If u like a MC DNT take advantage. Tell your friends! Tweet the djs. Help create a buzz! If not then don’t complain about why some shit emcees who talks bout Gucci belts and stabbin man for 10 p has 4 million views!!! Sometimes it seems the ignorant fans support more than the awakened at times. Although there are some amazing fans out there that support to the max. But sadly we need more. Now the artist need to stop doin cliché shit. Regurgitating other materials and concepts. Bare bandwagon hoppin! The talent in the UK is the best hip hop in the world period! From our djs to producers, to emcees to graffiti. We are contenders for that crown but we lackin coz everyone wants to be Jay z and no one wants to be Damon dash. WE NEED FUCKIN INVESTORS AND PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT!!!! Also we need to stop thinking that only unsuccessful underground hip hop is the only real hip hop. Naah blaad. That’s not the case.we need to be progressive.

LU 7?) Whats next RE3CO after BEASTS OF BURDEN? Any more projects in the works? What artists would you like to collab with in the future?

RE3) I’ve only started. I got a lot of plans. A lot of tracks I’m sitting on and I write at least 5 tracks aweek . So there’s gonna be a tsunami of RE3COmusic to come. Loads of collab eps comin this year, mixtapes, then a RE3CO e.p at the end of the year. Followed by my next album this time next year. I’ve already got half the beats half written. The speed that I put together projects is going to improve a lot as I learn every project. Yeah brudda, many people I would love to work with from all genres. As far as UK hip hop Cyrus Malachi, M9, Pheonix Da Icefire, Fliptrix, Klash, Leafdog, Ragnbone man. Few more man but most of all my hero Skinny Man. He promised a collab years ago! ha ha ha I need to chase that one up. That’s like on my to do list before I die for real.

LU 8?) What influences musically or otherwise inspired you to make BEASTS OF BURDEN?

RE3) No music man to be real. I mean my two main inspirations for my style would be Big Pun and Skinnyman and a bit of Jay Z. As for my topic matter for the album? My life inspired me blaad. I’ve had it hard and I turned it around from growing up in care, to being homeless, to jail to realizing that life wasn’t for me, and to take control and be who I wanna be. Along the way I’ve experienced some shit and I’ve studied a lot of history, occult, and spiritual stuff. I’m definitely an instinctive person. I go with my feelings. With BEASTS OF BURDEN each track is how I feel at the time of making it.  So I’d say what I’ve observed and gone through and who I am at this point in my life has inspired it more then anyone else’s music.

"NOT EVERYONE HAS TO RAP! We need some managers. Real business men in this scene. Some man power behind emcees. Instead of millions of emcees" -RE3CO

 

LU 9?) Being an emcee is a quite powerful platform in reality. In what way would you like to use this skill to impact the scene?

RE3)  I’d like to change a few things. For myself I’d like to continue express these emotions and put my anger into this form and liberate myself of my demons. By telling all my secrets and inspiring others to do the same. Also if I can make a doctors pay doin music I’m happy. I wanna be able to live off my art and help my family and others in the future. For the scene its a dream but id like to change attitudes.  Change whats cools mainly now days. A guy who wears a Louis Vuitton belts and raps about guns and trappin and gang.that shit is cool. I wanna make it so that shit is a joke. Only a small amount of people who really live that life dig it. Instead of impressionable kids, If one of these lil yutes stops listening to that or whatever and decide to wear and talk and be who he wants to be instead of feeling pressure to join the crowd. I’ve made it!! I’d like it so when mans rap about being a gangsters or a shotter ect, kids just laugh and think its stupid. I could rest peacefully knowing that hip hop from the heart was cool again.. also to inspire my contemporarys  to be innovators and show love and support each others and boycott the bullshit. To motivate the fans to support the best. I just want it to be real nah mean? No more fake cliche shit. No more soul-less music. Supported by soul-less people. I want UK hip hop to show the fuckin world what we already know. And remind the Americans and the corporations that real authentic hip hop is a viable business. You don’t  need trannys rappin about molly and gay shit. Dressing up like women ect..that shit is fuckin up our children and our society by extension.

LU 10?) In summation you’ve worked hard to make this album. What advice would you give others about making an album or even getting into Hip Hop? What message would you like to tell the fans if you were chilling in a room face to face with them?

RE3) I used to ask people this question myself and the truth is. only experience can show you. We are all different. Whats works for us is as unique as a fingerprint. Who you are will determine weather your successful or not. This is the hardest shit I’ve ever done in my life and the reward is not what people may think. I think Dave Chappelle said it best when he said “That for all the artists who do it for the “art”….if they decide to get into the ‘business of art’…prepare to have your fucking heart broken.” ha ha ha ha!! I can say what works for me though is truth. You gotta be honest with your self about your strengths and weaknesses. You gotta be your own worse critic. You gotta be thick skinned and you gotta ask yourself why you want this…because determination and sacrifice is what it takes. I’ve spent all my money on this. I’ve stayed up night after night tellin my wife “5 mins more.” Again and again until she falls asleep behind me.I’ve let my love life, my relationships, my family, my health all suffer for this because I wanted to do my art more then anything. And I ain’t even got anywhere yet! I’m still at the start. Win or lose didn’t matter to me, and still don’t want to do music…..I need to. I don’t have a choice. So I’d say go for what you love. If you love this music shit ,then be obsessive. Embrace your insanity and go for it. Keep making mistakes and learning…and most of all never rely on anyone else. That way any help is a compliment to your art instead of a vital component to your success. Tunnel vision that bitch! and pat yourself on the back every time you do well!

So there you have it. A sick interview from RE3CO.  London Underground was grateful for RE3CO‘s time and also for the eye opening interview. Make sure you watch this space for more info from RE3COAlsomake sure you go out and support real artists like  RE3CO.
