Robert‘s painfully remorseful debut single ‘Porridge‘ features the powerful tones of Rag’n’Bone Man, and is an open-hearted, melancholic look back at time spent behind bars and the agony imprinted in his family’s life.
From the moment the song opens with the line “grey’s growing faster than my seeds…”, the pain is etched into the ears of the listener, proving to be a more harrowing and gripping experience, rather than something for the listener’s pleasure.
The song was produced by SonnyJim and The Purist and features additional vocals from UK legends Skinnyman and Dirty Dike. ‘Porridge’ is taken from ‘Orange Is The New Black‘ an un-apologetically English rap album. Tales of misspent youth, drug deals gone awry and prison bids, laid over epic folk, punk and psychedelic rock soundscapes. All from from the life of rapper Robert.
Featuring appearances From Rag’N’Bone Man, Sleaford Mods, Kool Keith and Slug of Atmosphere fame and produced by The Purist (Loyle Carner, CASisDEAD, Freddie Gibbs, Danny Brown) and Sonnyjim (Conway, Chris Crack, Vic Spencer).
