After a decade as a poet and musician-during which he‘s collaborated with The Bug and Attica Blues, and toured with Cody Chesnutt and De La Soul-Roger Robinson has finally gotten around to recording a debut LP. His distinct spoken word rhymes, delivered in a hard-to-place accent that belies time spent in New York, London and Trinidad, underpin proceedings whilst Speeka‘s Rob Mac takes care of beats. “Nicola‘s Song” (think Electric Circus-era Common) and “Scars,” the sole track featuring Robinson‘s surprisingly soft singing voice, are the choicest cuts.
