Clash
Indeed, pretty much all of this is brand new material. That seems like a gutsy move in 2017, when most albums are trailed by multiple stream-only singles and videos, but here it figures more as a reminder that there’s still a place for bold new artists in the world.

The Guardian
Not to be confused with plain old grime (so 2015, guys!), J Hus leads a wave of MCs who blend the genre’s hard-hitting, distinctly UK flow with bashment and Afrobeat.

ba, alguns bangers foda demais aqui. A produção é o ponto alto...um som limpo, vibrante, muito bem mixado e com uma energia e riqueza de detalhes considerável. Explorando batidas de trap com levadas do afrobeat e instrumentação do R&B, esse disco traz um som impressionante pra qlquer disco de hip hop em 2017.
