[RATING: 5] Stand by for real hip-hop as the big discovery of Nick Faber’s recent comp. for his new Fabyl label, Bronx Slang (a.k.a the long off-the-radar Jerry Beeks and his homie Ollie Miggs) launch Well Well Well, the first fusillade off their forthcoming self-titled LP. What ensues is three and half minute’s of the duo pondering what would happen if only they possessed the skills of anyone and everyone from Mike Tyson to Tiger Woods over a phat, soul-based slab of boom-bap. What’s that Miggs? If I had Messi’s talent and Beckham’s looks/ Ronaldo’s leg and Neymark’s foot. Yes – I can see why that might appeal. Jerry? If I had a fly Mercedes and a Dodge to Challenge/ I could even blow up with Pitbull’s talent. That was irony regarding Pitbull, I trust? You may need to redeem yourselves, the pair of you – If I had Obama’s swagger and Mayweather’s speed/ Every shorty in the club would wanna have my seed. That’s more like it. Makes you wonder what would happen if you had Beeks’s rhymes or Miggs’s lines.
(Out 26 October on Fabyl)
