Another strong release that deserves your attention (and pennies) is the new album from Madison Washington. The duo – Malik Ameer on raps and thatmanmonkz on production – have been forging their own path in rap since last year, when they arrived with their Code Switchin’ EP; an EP which garnered a lot of interest from listeners and critics, including good music aficionado, Gilles Peterson. Now they return with a politically and socially charged full length album, accompanied by a band of poets and artists, as they attempt to look at the idea of modern day slavery. Some of the names involved include scat singer, Lorin Benedict, singer-songwriter, Jamika Ajalon and poet, Kirsty Allison. The whole album is definitely one to savour. (((FACTS))) is out today on Def Presse and you can stream it below.
