Split Prophets have been a recognised name in UK hip hop since they burst out of Bristol with their Scribbled Thoughts EP. That was back in 2011 and after a slew of solo releases and a couple of posse cuts, this year sees the release of their first crew album, Delta Bravo Kilo. The eight strong collective have brought us 20 solid songs that prove exactly why they’ve amassed so many fans. Read the rest of this entry »
