I've always loved Braintax. Biro Funk was a benchmark in UKHH production, and he's always been good live as well. However, he has seriously pissed a few people off with his decision to end Lowlife. Jehst is annoyed, and Chester P has laid into him on a track, claiming he ripped him off. I don't know exactly how much truth there is in these claims, but Jehst seemed genuinely upset at how Braintax has conducted himself when I spoke to him last week.
New UK Hip-Hop and dubstep poetry, poetic raps over dirty basslines, my music http://www.last.fm/music/Kev+the+Poet+aka+KP+The+Hip-Hop+Bard and the crew - http://www.last.fm/music/Synchromystickz featuring the Appleblim exclusives.
you're right actually, naive is probably the best word for them. given it a bit more of a listen. i still think he plods along with his flow though. no variation - which seems to be a UKHH theme (as a generalisation)
He knows whats coming, and has made his plans good luck to him. He's lucky he's outta britain. Wish i could join him. But you cant just walk out of hip hop and never return, He better be back in one form or another. He is one of the worlds best.
yedman... very sad to have him leave the scene. a pioneer in terms of rapping and record label - but at least he went out on a banger - 'My Last & Best Album'... could actaully be his best! awesome shit.
Untitled? Bloody typical. The problem with all his EPs are they are essentially singles with two tracks on, but contain three different mixes of the tracks. Bit of a rip off really. Future Years EP, Travel Show EP and especially Fat Head EP are the only exceptions.
Yo Tony, Yheaar man, That track your after is Featured exclusively as the 22nd Track on the £10 bag vol.2 mixtape, produced by Otis for a 2003 Raw Dog Production, But It's bloody untitled!!! So I think I'm gunna call it 9/11 now n'all! Peace bro.
Nine-eleven/How come nobody ever claimed it/I think about it more, keep coming up with the same shit/I don't believe none of that far fetched conspiracy theories/But this one got me 'plexed > A lot of rapper's, read dodgy books/About unexplained shit/So they make it up/Pyramids and the Aliens, It's all mirage/We Deal with the hear and now cos' Life's Large..
Oh and the lyrics start: Nine-eleven/How come nobody ever claimed it/I think about it more, keep coming up with the same shit/I don't believe none of that far fetched conspiracy theories/But this one got me 'plexed.
I have a track by Braintax on the subject of 11th September attacks but I don't know what it's called, anyone know the official title? I have it as 9/11 but no-one seems to have that scrobbled. It's not from any of his albums or from any of the EPs from what I can deduce, nor are there featured artists for it to be from someone else's record.
Capitalists are we, we pretend we’re not,
Buying better trainers each year, connecting dots,
We go from first job to next job, to mortgage to kids,
Make it harder to be happy 9-to-5in’ to live,
Me I’m striving to give but I’ll hustle like mad
Just to get ahead in life,
I need money so bad, yeah I’m pissed now
So do you get my gist now ?
If hell existed, half the world’s already in the lift down…..
