For those of you who don’t know about Northwest London emcee AC you really do need to get switched on to this incredibly dedicated and passionate artist. This new five track EP from AC is the official prelude to his brand new album ‘Keep It Together‘ which is currently just getting the finishing touches and is due out soon. It sees AC team up with producer Deadman Walkn who gives up four brilliant beats and who has worked with the likes of Genesis Elijah, Wordsmiff, Terra Slim.
The last track ‘Work‘ is produced by June 25th, another talented UK producer who recently smashed up the underground with his ‘Produced By June‘ mixtape. AC has also enlisted the help of Mr Drastick and Kinetik from Grand Central who go hard on the remix of ‘Real Grafters‘. AC’s music has essence and soul with depth.
AC has been putting it down for years and is well known for selling 40,000 copies of his critically acclaimed CD’s ‘Human Trash‘ and ‘Youthanasia‘ on the streets, with no major backing, promotion or distribution. He recently impressed the Hip-Hop fraternity with his ‘New Day EP‘ with Hip-hop legend and producer Jabbathakut which featured Hip-Hop veteran Genesis Elijah and legendary rap hustler D21 of Blackmobb. AC has also shared stages with US acts such as Common, The Outlawz, Capone’n’Noreaga, UK acts such as Skinnyman and Klashnekoff, Grime acts such as Sway and Chipmunk and R’n’B acts such as Estelle, Jay Sean and Marques Houston, as well Asian music stars Panjabi MC and Rishi Rich Project and drum’n’bass DJ’s such as BBC Radio One’s Grooverider and Fabio, Andy C and many more…
