Melanin 9 album "Magna Carta" reviewed by Oli Arditi

Expect this to be the first of many!

London's Melanin 9 releases his debut official album "Magna Carta" on 3rd December, following on from much vaunted Mixtapes and EP's "High Fidelity", "144,000" and "Orion's Stencil"

Journalist Oli Arditi is first off the mark with a typically in depth analysis of the 14 tracks on offer which includes features by Triple Darkness and Roc Marciano.

As an artist, Melanin 9 is renowned as a conscientious lyricist with superior wordplay, and its no secret that this album has been a long time in the making, as each, verse, track, producer and guest artist is painstakingly put together, a fact Oli picks up on

"The degree of commitment and seriousness with which this album has been assembled is hard to miss"...."this is an artwork of great power, remarkable vision and pinpoint accuracy"

Its a really insightful review of the album and the artist, and can be read in full at
