As one of Scotland's most established rappers, with countless mix-tape release and collaboration projects, it is remarkable that this is Werd's first solo album. With a variation of styles and content it's difficult to categorize this release to a specific tone, however that also means whatever style of hip-hop you prefer, there's something here for everyone. This is a must have for fans of UK / Scottish hip-hop. On one hand we have deep personal songs such as 'Find My-Sell' and 'MY State Of Mind' that seep emotion, here we listen to Werd reflect on his life and journey within music. However, on the other end of the spectrum we have hard hitting punch lines and high energy tracks that we have come to expect from the Edinburgh emcee.
Production on the album comes in many forms and features an elite selection of Scottish beat-makers such as Nasty P, Bigg Taj, Scant Squad, UVBeatz and more. Furthermore, the vocal features on the release also contain the cream of the crop from the Scottish scene, Madhat McGore, Deeko, Wardie Burns, Conscious Route and Glasgow's Mog to name a few. This isn't only a release for pushing his music further, but rather the whole genre in Scotland.
