Streams Slowthai “Nothing Great About Britain” Album
Slowthai has being in the forefront of British new generational hip-hop, he comes through today with a powerful debut project titled “Nothing Great About Britain”.
He has being working really hard and massively improving himself, one song at a time. His crude, often politically-charged lyricism swindles against the hard-pounding grime beats that relish in UK bass and garage.
He is as lyrically powerful as the punk artists were thirty-odd years ago, and his instrumental alignment remains seated in the rich dance and club culture the UK developed in the post-punk era.
In many senses, slowthai is a punk rocker – full of edgy lyricism, off-kilter, hard-hitting in-your-face sonic characteristics – born in the era of grime. After all, this is a guy notorious for performing live in nothing but a crown and a pair of underwear.
Now the Northampton-bred artist’s identity comes together in the form of his turbulent debut album, Nothing Great About Britain.
The 11-track album includes the singles “Doorman” and “Gorgeous,” plus appearances from Skepta and fellow British rapper, JayKae.
