If Mr. Key, Dirty Dyke, Ronnie Bosh, Ed Scissor Tongue and Jamm Baxter were actually funny then their funky and technical rhyme styles, sing-along choruses and bouncy production would be put to good use. Fingers In Your Nose is a song about snot, now Dead Residents proved on Vee Kay's Bogey Homicide that that concept can be funny, but when Contact Play do it, it's just not.
Death of a Prick is proof that this crew have what it takes as they tell the story of a man wastes his life away. Now I don't know for sure but it seems that a lot of the lyrics are just a front and that if you met them, these guys would actually be quite nice - who knows though. This LP is not for me but I can think of heads who would love it.
Production comes from TwoManySteps, Adrian, Cire, Karem Fraiche, Mr. Constant, Andy Dextrous, Medison and Jimmy Wahgwan - no names that I know but each certainly knows how to build dope beats - my favourite part of the album.
Champion Fraff is out now on School Bully Records and can be bought at Suspect Packages.
