Manchester Rapper Black Josh Releases Fourth Album Feat. Metrodome
'Mannyfornia' LP is available now on vinyl and digitally via Blah Records.
Black Josh has released a new album, Mannyfornia, available now.
Black Josh, from Manchester, has established himself as one of most electrifying hip-hop artists to emerge from the United Kingdom, first gaining YouTube popularity through his video for footballer Paul Scholes and his song with The Mouse Outfit, “Air Max.” His style sits between grime’s fervent flow and the lackadaisical delivery of hip-hop.
Mannyfornia is Black Josh’s fourth album, following 2018’s Yung Sweg Lawd, and it’s also produced by Metrodome. Across 16 tracks, Metrodome’s eerie, spacious, and often atmospheric production complements Black Josh’s dark, visceral, and introspective lyricism. It features many of Black Josh’s friends, including Yibby, Meme Gold, Lord Apex.
In 2014, Black Josh released blahblahblackjosh, his debut album, having formed prestigious Ape Cult at a mere 15 years old. He is also a member of Cult of The Damned and Levelz, a Mancunian super-collective of MCs, producers, and creatives.
Artwork comes from J. Neilson.
