Another jewel from the crown that is Benaddict’s latest album. The Yogocop MC was the force behind two of last year’s high points – The Garden of England and Teal – and now he is back with A New Leaf. The production on the album is split between Ded Tebiase and psalm/trees, with both producers tuning into that classic boom bap sound that Benaddict always works best with.
Rainbow Coloured Weather is a quintessential track in terms of his work, with jazzy riffs and loops giving a platform for Benaddict to weave his words. He has always been good at shining a light on his own character and how he has learned lessons from past events, to then build a foundation from which he has been able to fully focus on his art. And the results are clear as day, with A New Leaf further propelling him into the UK rap scene’s heart.
