Madman the Greatest – ICYMI (Part 1)

Delivering his official double dose of verbal warfare, the beat-maker brings a two-part collection of recordings which were solely and exclusively created at the GR8-1 Music Lab.  Part 1 of the collection features guest vocals from long time collaborators Ruff MP & Cecil Foster.  This is what he considers his lyrical showcase based on the perception of a determined and undeterred MC.   Raw beats & unapologetic flow makes the artists go full throttle over 15 self-built tracks.  Songs like ‘More’, ‘Dream On’ and ‘Fake Thug Stories’ strengthens the message that Madman the Greatest is not playing around with any of his rival MCs. 

Mainly driven in the direction of Alternative Hip Hop, he combines the sounds of synthesizers with raw boom bap drums chopped in his signature style of stomping kicks and snapping snares.  Songs like ‘Can’t do nothing for ya’ & ‘Fake Thug Stories’ & ‘Put the pressure up (feat Ruff MP)’ easily displays those recognisable attributes.  Taking inspiration from the culture he grew up in, he symbolises his love for reggae and dancehall culture by creating two records purposely as a tribute.   ‘Moving on me’ and ‘Back it on me’ brings out his youthful experiences of being around Jamaican and Caribbean sounds that was played constantly in his household by both his parents.

Synths; bass and drums combined with a brazen, lyrical bashful flow make up Part 1 of 2 to his monster collection.
