Foreign Beggars: It’s Gonna Be Fine / Forget Dem

As the curtain falls on Foreign Beggars’ illustrious career, they have treated us to two more videos from their final album, Matriarchy. The two videos are a perfect encapsulation of the Beggars’ broad approach to making music, as they move from profound, misty-eyed reflection, to raw unadulterated griminess. The first track, It’s Gonna Be Fine, sees the trio reuniting with one of the original collaborators, Dr Syntax, as as well as acclaimed singer-songwriter, ADMT. It’s definitely one of my favourites from the album, if not the favourite, and it’s particularly nice to hear Synners back on a Beggars track. The second video – which you can see below – is for the epic banger, Forget Dem, and features Roll Deep and BBK OGs, Flowdan and Jammer. Both tracks are produced by Seemore Beats. Matriarchy is available now from all the usual spots.

Foreign Beggars: Matriarchy (Stream)

As the end of the decade looms ever closer, so does the final act from Foreign Beggars as they release their last ever album, Matriarchy. It’s some what of a return to their roots, as the ever-innovative crew depart from the more genre-bending sound they have cultivated over the last decade or so, and circle back to the music that first introduced them to the world. Produced in full by Seemore Beats, it’s an album that feels full of love and hope, which is welcome today more than ever, and it also plays like the perfect goodbye ofrom one of the most influential and respected groups to ever exist. The features are reflective of the respect the Beggars command, with Maverick Sabre, Jammer, Blak Twang, DRS, MysDiggi and Dr Syntax among the guest spots. The full album is ready to stream below and downloads can be found over on Bandcamp.
