For those of us who reside on this side of the Atlantic, it can be frustrating when we see gig after gig being advertised, knowing that we will most likely never reach any of them. Which is why videos like this bring me so much joy. Not that long ago, Fatboi Sharif took his infectious brand of rap to the streets, with a live performance in the middle of Washington Square Park in New York. The set features a number of gems from his collaboration with Roper Williams, which has quite rightly earned the duo the acclaim they deserve. The film is also peppered with clips that highlight how entertaining Sharif is beyond the confines his music; a showman in every sense. The deluxe edition of Gandhi Loves Children is available now via POW Recordings.
Pleased to see the arrival of the new album from Jason Griff and Alaska, as they take us inside the Human Zoo. Being a cynical man (realist?) with a penchant for the dystopian, this album is right up my street. It also helps that Alaska is still rapping his ass off, however many years it is after I first heard him on the mic, and Griff keeps that same energy maintained throughout his production with ease. A nice selection of features too, including Fatboi Sharif, Scorcese and Love, Ulysses. Listen below, then head to Bandcamp to cop a physical and/or a throw pillow.Continue reading “Jason Griff & Alaska: Human Zoo (Stream)”
Fatboi Sharif and Roper Williams return with another provocative video from their album, Gandhi Loves Children. This time it’s the opening cut on the album and features Sharif working his way through various tragedies and cataclysmic events, from aviation disasters to school shootings, like a twisted rap version of We Didn’t Start the Fire. The deluxe edition of GLC is out now via POW Recordings.
The warped world we were ushered into by Fatboi Sharif and Roper Williams, just got that little bit more twisted, thanks to the arrival of the deluxe edition of Gandhi Loves Children. The expanded version boasts three brand new tracks, which successfully maintain the deranged delirium many of us were whipped into after our earlier introduction. These include the new closer, Angels & Demons, which counterpoints Williams’ soulful loop with Sharif’s distorted vocals, and the drug-laced dirge of Prescription. The deluxe edition is out now via POW Recordings and is available from all the usual streaming spots.Continue reading “Fatboi Sharif & Roper Williams: Gandhi Loves Children (Deluxe)”
Fatboi Sharif and Roper Williams prove that variety really is the spice of life, as they deliver their next video, which stands out as a veritable summer jam when compared to the demonic growl of Stigmata. Soulful loops and street corner raps, plus a nice feature YL – what more could you ask for? Fly Pelican is taken from the duo’s album, Gandhi Loves Children, which is getting a deluxe release on 1 July via POW Recordings.
Fatboi Sharif and Roper Williams welcome us back into their strange universe with another maniacal video, that carries on in the same delightfully unhinged vein as last year’s Smithsonian. Stigmata is lifted from Gandhi Loves Children, which is due for the deluxe release on 1 July via POW Recordings.
