Vicious Circle

Vicious CircleSome UK rap fans out there feel uncomfortable when references are made to street life, crime and drugs in UK hip hop music. Which is strange when you think about it. Because crime is rife in many estates in the UK, looming over young lives daily with hands holding juicy fruits of temptation. Young rappers such as 10 Shott & Size 8 feed off what they see around them as a base to launch their rhymes from.

On The DL - Funky DL
User Rating: / 3

Funky DL - Classic Was The Day LPDuring the late 1990s, few UK rap acts were heard on the radio airwaves as much as East London’s Funky DL. His early tracks - ‘Da Individual’ and ‘1-2-2-1’ - were supported by the likes of Westwood, Max ‘n’ Dave and DJ 279, helping Funky DL to quickly build up a strong following. Critics were quick to disparage DL for rapping in an American accent but few could question the quality of his producing skills. His use of mellow jazz samples led to comparisons being made between his style and that of respected US artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Pete Rock.

Demanding Respect - Social Misfits
User Rating: / 1

Sunday, 15 July 2001
Social MisfitsIt is a cold evening in late June and The Cartoon Club in West Croydon, South London, is hosting Deemore’s Black and White Exposure: a talent showcase for local up-and-coming singers, rappers and dancers. The venue is reasonably full, but the crowd seems extremely sedated as Da Essence, from the Social Misfits rap collective, take to the stage. Without receiving much encouragement from the audience, Mr Roach, Ace and Flamer still manages to deliver a lively set that includes a ‘Verbal Workout’ over the instrumental to M.O.P.’s ‘Ante Up’ and ‘Girl from the Manor’, a cheeky tune about chatting up women. After their performance, I manage to grab the trio and their producer Sir Prestige for a chat.

Surviving In The Forgotten World - Malarchi
User Rating: / 2

Thursday, 12 July 2001
I read somewhere that ‘malarchi’ means ‘blossoming’ in Tamil; and it’s fair to say that the East London emcee who uses the word as his moniker is also one of UK hip hop’s burgeoning talents. His debut album ‘Forgotten World’ was released with considerable fanfare back in May, so I recently caught up with him at the Darkjoint recording studio in Canning Town (where most of the album’s tracks were conceived) to find out what he is trying to achieve with his LP.

Saturday, 30 June 2001
In an age when hip hop producers can gain as much of a celebrity status as the top emcees in the scene, Roy 'The Dark Disciple' is determined to establish himself as one of the UK's finest beat makers.  Born and raised in South London, but now residing in Canning Town, East London, Roy is the lead member of the Darkjoint production team and is responsible for crafting all of the beats on Malarchi's thunderous 'Forgotten World' LP.

PQFans of hip hop often find themselves having to decipher the Ebonics, ghetto grammar and street slang that’s contained in rappers’ lyrics. However, it’s more unusual to have to reach for a dictionary in order to understand the meaning behind an emcee’s moniker...
