Yo my peoples Ray Vendetta and Greater Goods new album ‘Effortless‘ has just landed. That’s right undergrounders we’ve been hyping this album since London Underground first heard about it. This jont is a first of a trilogy of albums set to release from Ray Vendetta this year. Trust Ray Vendetta always brings the goods when it come to bars and wordplay. While a sick wordsmith from the Triple Darkness camp and also sick contributor to ill UK group OBBA SUPA. Ray is no slouch when it comes to dropping tight music. Check his previous projects: Who is Daddy Long Love, Guess whose coming to Dinner, Dirty Drama & Ray Vendetta- Dramatic Vendettas, Seven Swordz of Light.

Those familiar to Ray Vendettas work ethic and prolific writing know that this is set to be another jewel dropped from the lab.

One to kick back and smoke one too or throw a drink back. If that’s your sort of thing. Even those on a sober tip just ready for some deep tunes… here your key to your escape from the mundane. Honestly I’m feeling this joint and I am glad to bring the news straight from the underground to you. ‘Effortless‘ has a sort of rainy day vibe to it. For example you ever listen to dope music in a car and it raining?  Ever have a time where  it seemed the rain fall, window wipers, and scattering pedestrians are moving in synchronicity with the tune your rocking. Thats is the atmosphere I get from this album.  A straight organic feel with no unnatural flavors. If ya get me. Truly ‘Effortless‘ is the proper title for this. Seriously effortless rhyming over soulful beats.

Solar Black is from legendary London crew Triple Darkness. Make sure you check Solar Blacks back catalog and also Triple Darkness. Plus keep an eye out for sick newcomer Black Chronical as he makes his mark on the game in the years to come. As busy as Solar Black has been London Underground was blessed enough to get some of his time and ask him a few questions about the new release “Silver Casket Mixtape” among other projects of his on the horizon. Check out what he had to say in our in depth interview.

 

 

LU 1)What do you want people to take away from this Release? ( like a concept or an impression for example)?

SB- I want people to get a slight reminder of that first came on the scene with Baptism Under Fire, having roast scratch it up gave it that touch. I also wanted it to be a response to all of the skirt wearing, french manicuring, absent minded material plane crap my brothers across the world were going on with. These brothers are controlled by vampires sucking the blood from the veins of our beloved culture and the silver casket is symbolic of the end of that.

LU 2)You’ve mentioned this album as a warm up to Winged Scarabz. What can you tell us about Winged Scarabz?

SB- Winged scarabz is my first official offering as Solar Black, it features my entire Triple Darkness crew with a couple other special guests, there’s more to come and this is the beginning.

 

LU 3)Seeing how hip hop is changing to a more mainstream sound. Do you think underground artists today should still strive to break into the industry? Or should they stay independent? Whats your take.

SB- I think being independent is the best way to go right now, the problem you get with a lot of contracts is the loss of creative control. I think anyone who loves this genre should hold their ground and create that timeless music the world first fell in love with. I believe things will change though I get a lot of support around the world and I’m certain I’m not the only one who is getting noticed for authenticity and talent.

LU 4)We’ve heard your Crew Triple Darkness is working on an album. What can we fans expect from this long anticipated joint?

SB- People can expect a high level of production, lyricism & content. Every brother in the crew knows what the other one is capable of and because of that we all want to raise the bar.

 LU 5)While being a sick solo emcee. Your also known to have a lot of dope featured emcees. Such as Keith Murray, Action Bronson, Klashnekoff ect.. Who can we look forward to you colabbing with in the near future?

SB- Well…. I’ve been working overtime lets put it that way lol. Im on a posse cut with life, Cappo & Manage on one track. Si Philli n Dotz & Black Twang on another track. TPS, Split prophets and Gee Bagular. Reks & Paul strange from Snow Goons. Tragedy khadafi & Timbo King. Too much to mention if I’m gonna be honest and that ain’t even it that’s just a snapshot.

 

LU 6)Being a prolific writer. Its known you’ve got mad tunes and albums saved in the chamber.I heard about your Cinematic project your making. Is there any news on a release date.

SB- I’m currently in talks with a very renowned record label we’ll see how that plays out lol, me and Strange Neighbour will keep peeps in the loop though, most likely do a video interview breaking everything down, we’ll air the snippets of the album soon.

LU 7)What other projects can we look forward to from you in the years to come?

SB- Project Chimera LP is being worked upon as we speak in addition to that I got another mixtape entitled Buried in Armour & an Ep called Nostalgic. I’m not going to let the cat out the bag for the other 2 projects I got coming those are top secret we’ll talk offline on those 2 lol

“I expressed that I wasn’t going to take it easy on him and its only because I respect him, my craft and myself.” -Solar Black on his expectations of his brother Black Chronical.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LU 8)What inspires you most to write? Are there any artists or others who stoke those flames when you pick up the pen?

SB- Good production inspires me to write to be honest and in addition to that the whole Triple Darkness crew make me wanna step up my game in a big way. As soon as I pick up the pen I think of my brothers in the crew so I guess that plays a big part.

LU 9)What next for Phoenix DA IceFire?

SB- At the moment I’m just trying to get all the product out there, I’m do ahead of myself project wise that I play my 4th album on the way to work lol, I need to get it out there honestly.

LU 10)Tesla’s Ghost is hosting your mixtape. How did that come about?

SB- After M9 hosted my first project I kind of sat down and thought you know what? My team should be the ones hosting my mixtapes and if I have longevity in this game I got enough members in the crew to make that a reality lol. Me and Tesla are doing an album together entitled “Army of the moving statues” I won’t spill the concept but yeah I’ve been working close with him these days, I guess it came about in an organic way.

LU 11)Black Chronical is your brother right? How was that to work with him. And did sibling rilvary spur on more creativity?

SB -Yes for the record Black Chronicle is my blood brother lol. my brother knows I got very high standards even from myself so when I put it to him that we should do a project together I said to him “this will either make you or break you” I expressed that I wasn’t going to take it easy on him and its only because I respect him, my craft and myself. He respects me both lyrically and as an older brother and that is reciprocated as far as respect goes so it wasn’t hard to work with him on.

LU 12)You’ve got some amazing artwork on the Silver Casket Mixtape. Can you tell us who did it? Also can you explain the concept behind the dude in the coffin?

SB-A close friend of mine by the name of Dr Cyclopz does my artwork, he is responsible for the face of my body of work for the most part of it. The guy in the casket is actually a symbol of the fallen black men in hip hop who’ve sold their souls to the true vampires of the game, the big corporations that cheapen, debase and pimp our expression for money. That character ” Rick Jones” is symbolic of a human bill board, a media whore and sell out, hence the dreadlocks and the red dress which I see brothers donning these days.

LU 13)On the Silver Casket mixtape do you have any favorite tracks on there?

SB- Use your imagination pt 2 has got to be my favorite out of the whole tape, for me this was truly a pleasure to write and the fact that I got my mum in the studio to jump on the hook makes me feel like I achieved the impossible, knowing she has faith in what I do really is empowering.

LU 14)What challenges have you had to overcome as an artist to get where you are today?

SB- I’ve been lucky enough to be in the right circles and to have been embraced by the likes of Word play magazine, Disorder, all the fans/supporters, hip hop kings, blue cheese, chemo, Joseph Media, Grindworks Management, Blade, global faction and Ryan proctor. All of them have contributed to my success and made my journey to through the game easier than most creatives. The only major issue for me has been money and I feel things could be turning around for me so fingers crossed.

LU 15)Were there any difficult challenges in the making of this album?

SB- it was actually quite easy to make which made me think twice if it was good enough lol

LU 16)At the end of the day what do you want fans to take away from the Silver Casket Mixtape?

SB -I want fans to know that my mixtapes are at a certain level and that what I stand for is real hip hop

So please cop that Silver Casket Mixtape. Watch this space for more news from Solar Black and Black Chronical.
