    Alot of haters out there on the net but you must respect the man for the ability to balance demands of two careers (law and rap) and excel - definitely one of the hardest working and most thoughtful mc's in the UK

    I love this guy. I thought rap was dead but it seems there's still talent out there.

    I just bought his latest album with Mr thing - 'Grown Man Business', and I am here to tell you it is properly sick! This is the hottest album I have heard since Sway's 'This is my demo' - probably even better. He has more flows than I don't know what, and if you team him up with a Scratch Pervert who loves old soul, then GodDamn. Hugely recommended...
