RIYL: The Streets, The Mitchell Brothers, Roots Manuva
Label: Yogocop Records
UK hip hop artist Benaddict is gracing the world with his debut rekkid titled The Garden of England, a collection of 11 tracks boasting sweeping and smooth samples reminiscent of the early 2000s Brit rapÂ scene from The Streets to The Mitchell Brothers to Dizzee Rascal. Â The lyrics are refreshingly honest and transparent, a bold move in the face of new hip hop subgenres like meme and mumble rap. Â I’m a sucker for aÂ cockney accent over a crackly groove, man. Â What can I say?
