    So yeah, one of my best mate have just finished his DIY album.
    I know this might not appeal with everyone, as all the lyrics are in greek, but its defo worth grabbing this. That boy is getting big, ya 'eard me.

    like i said, its a DIY job, so dont expect massive quality in production, reminds of early MF doom and Necro.
    but the flow is oozing out of the tunes, and i absolutely love the content. Most of it deals with social problems, corruption, misinformation, and bad girls!
    So yeah,like i said, if you can see past the fact that you may not understand the language, you're in for a homemade treat.!

    peace

    as guru once said....

    It's mostly tha voice, that gets you up
    It's mostly tha voice, that makes you buck
    A lot of rappers got flavor, and some got skills
    But if your voice ain't dope then you need to [chill... chill... ]

    he's got the good vocal tone, the MF Doom comparison isn't far off the mark, some nice tracks, nice flow.

    impressed, shame i haven't got a danny (la rue) what he is saying.

    heh! Fresh indeed, but it gets lost in translation!
    cheers man, glad some people get it. sometimes i prefer listening to Portuguese or russian rap, and its great to just let go and hear the voice as an instrument rather than a lyrical content.
    let me know of the track numbers you dig, and i'll sort out a rough translation.

    Yeh, foreign Hip Hop is cool. I like to just listen to the flow, sounds more as if it's one, because cetain words/lines don't jump out.

    Visa fritta soufoer glasse.

    Any speak swedish? Some bird told me that in a random pub one time, been using it on ladies all the time. When they ask what that means, I say "You're as sweet and cool as Ice Cream", but it actually mean "Will you show me your fanny for some ice cream"

    very rough translations...
    track 09. Anaitia (without reason)

    microphones opened and everyone came in
    thousands Mc's are writing their own story
    inside a city that stinks of formaldehyde
    between big men roles always switch
    all of you know listen to this CD
    you wont understand what i mean so spare me the Yo's
    you're addressing people who have no brain
    15 years of average age
    you filled the clubs and you charge on the door
    but you always force your way in you chickenshit
    you prophesied that hip hop would change, now ask yourself
    but only few speak true like they were in the first place
    things change so do you
    everyone confuses hip hop they call it R n'B
    in every tune they hear a female voice
    the talking starts from the music critiques

    Bored, to hear all of them
    disgust, for the music critiques
    I judged, my sounds thats why you hear me
    with no reason, too much fuss for all of them
    x2

    how many couples more how many rhymes you want me to write
    i'll still be here and this my friend i'll sign for if you want
    years only i need to write rhymes, now 'ave it!
    whatever i do i'll be rolling and an ashtray by my side
    listen to me and if you havent got any brain i pass
    years have passed and from my sleeve i pull an ace
    i saw you on a dream telling me "Write it"
    thats why i satisfied you and now 'ave it!
    in the year 2000 and currently i step all over you
    lyrically and musically i dont know where i'll go
    8 years im writing rap because i love it
    you raised his flag and he thinks he's bigger than anyone
    take notice now, im going, i'll reference the old times
    when things where different
    few bands the scene was cool
    some lives here and there and everyone was ready for action
    now the world is overfilling with golden chains
    they're sporting the bantana they stole foreign melodies
    and they snatched as audience the high school virgins
    and they snatched as audience the high school virgins
    what role model can a kid make off you
    who every few years you change the facts
    from when you raped only about yourself
    you set as goal to sell out everyone


    Bored, to hear all of them
    disgust, for the music critiques
    I judged, my sounds thats why you hear me
    with no reason, too much fuss forall of them
