Pure fire. An unrelenting, unrepentant, unvarnished and absolutely unapologetic perspective on politics, injustice, colonial violence, free market fundamentalism, gentrification and so much more. Lee Reed's razor sharp rhymes and no bullshit approach to hip-hop is a powerful antidote to the vacuous adulation of wealth and women in so much pop music Hans G. Ischemer
