UK Hip Hop Review in BlackSheep Mag - Melanin 9 "Magna Carta"

"Magna Carta is one of the best British hip hop albums I've heard in a long, long time" concludes Andrew Kay in his review of Melanin 9's debut LP for the UK magazine Blacksheep

An in depth track by track analysis is then perfectly summarized, highlighting the mix of an emcee with deep thought provoking lyrics and highly skilled wordplay, complimented by a range of beats from the standard boom - bap hip hop head-nodders, jazzy mood music and electronica.

Melanin 9 isn't an artist afraid to push the musical boundaries, experiment with different sounds and production and yet keep a the 14 track album coherent and one which is already providing high praise from many which you will see in the weeks ahead.

The UK hip hop community has long known about this highly talented wordsmith, but there is about to be a wider appreciation from a larger cross section of the musical fraternity
