Description

VG/EX means that the item's sleeve is in Very Good condition and the disc is in Excellent condition. Largely recorded in early 2018 in East London, with Kwes Darko producing, the album serves up a succession of candid snapshots of British life. The main point I’m gettin’ across is that out of everything, the only thing that remains true is my family, my friends, the people around me. This is his debut album and, although this CD version is only 32 minutes long and, strangely does not include some of the great tracks that are included in the streaming version such as the brilliant T N Biscuits and Drug Dealer, there are still enough belters on here to make it a great, gritty and raw debut album.

Slowthai - Nothing Great About Britain - CD - Europe Pressing - Method - 2019 - MTHDCD001 - 11 Track - Condition (Sleeve/Disc): EX/EX. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. Nothing Great has the line "I ain't Dizzy, I'm just a boy in a corner" but it is an urgent Dizzy Rascal who slowthai sounds most like rather than the current South London grimers. Today, the 24- year-old MC is rapidly becoming notorious as the rarest of commodities: an authentic voice in an increasingly gentrified world.A searing account of an upbringing informed by financial struggle and adversity, “Northampton’s Child” finds Ty praising his mum’s tenacious spirit and selfless dedication to her family. All image and audio content is used by permission of the copyright holders or their agents, and/or according to fair dealing as per the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. The album also features guest appearances from Mura Masa, as well as fellow British rappers Skepta and Jaykae.

Kate Middleton, The Queen and EastEnders Phil Mitchell also get name checked and he conjures an image similar to a Cold War Steve collage with his wordplay. Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. Other standouts include Dead Leaves and collaborations with Jaykae on Grow Up and Skepta on Inglorious that allow Slowthai to lead a new wave of this genre, that may just save it. For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.The packaging is nicely put, but nothing above average and a bit below considering VMP's track record. Standing alongside righteous anger and hard truths, it's this willingness to appear vulnerable that makes Ty such a compelling storyteller, and this debut a vital cultural document, testament to the healing power of music. Gonna hold my hands up and say I'm normally more into metal and hardcore, but this is a great and very relevant album, and it's gritty af with a lot of punk and hardcore influence so I'm happy. This lack of specifics is born out of a desire not to date a record that he hopes will “resonate with people 40 years down the line”.
