MELANIN 9 (North London) – Organized Democracy /// UndergroundHipHopBLOG.comPosted: December 28, 2012
London’s Melanin 9 releases his debut album “Magna Carta” on 3rd December 2012.
He’s built up a reputation as one of the country’s most gifted emcees since working with producers Beat Butcha and Chemo on his first Mixtape “High Fidelity” in 2007, and again in 2008 when he launched “144,000” with contributions from Bronze Nazareth, Jon Phonics, Jehst and his group Triple Darkness. While rippin the mic at events such as “End of the Weak” or opening for international artists Styles-P, Immortal Technique and Wu Tang, he released the highly rated “Orion’s Stencil” in 2010 and featured on tracks by Killah Priest, Rewd Adams, Terra Firma, Copywrite and Logic.
The new 14 track album drops on Red Snow Records and has been a long time in the making, but is rammed full of slammin’ beats and hard hittin’ rhymes. It includes features from Triple Darkness and Flipmode veteran Roc Marciano with production by Jehst, Anatomy, Parental, Tony Mahoney & Ohbliv.
