Well where do I start… This is an absolute classic from track 1 to track 30. Mixed by Tricksta and hosted by Frontlines number 1 DJ Springa this mixtape defiantly has set the pace for the UK Hip-hop world of mixtapes. After watching the recent performance of 10shott at the BBC 1xtra gig it is barley surprising that this mixtape is of such a high calibre.
Wolverhampton record label WOLFTOWN RECORDINGS has been pumping out quality music since 1999. Now Wolftown Recordings unleashes the first of a string of CD releases by VICIOUS CIRCLE’s ‘10SHOTT’. It’s time to step to take a journey on the Ghetto Brick Road with one of the UK’s tightest and most talented emcees. 10SHOTT began rapping in the mid-nineties and signed to Wolftown Recordings back in 1997.
Some 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.
