    so literally in the last 24 hours i have discovered the awesomeness that is leaf dog... first time i heard him on a 4 owls record i was like what the fuck is this... but on further investigation his flow, content and delivery are sick as fuck!

    real raw uk hip hop

    he alrite, i prefer his production.. check three amigos - world war 3.. its his crews album... they bring their own stuff out on RLD so check for that.. rea life drama.. they tryna do thier own thing aswell as being part of high focus... BVA from the owls is in it too.. also Leafs solo album. from a scarecrows perspective is alrite.. alot of ppl rate it.. i can hook you up if you need..

    Leafy reps for UK Hip Hop harder than anyone about as well. None of that 'I'm too cool for it all' bollocks a lot of MCs go in for, he runs about the place more excited than the fans. Boom Bap festival he may as well have been hosting every stage.

    Sickest story teller too.

    yeah not syntax's best tune, but he has some gems.

    Edgar Wright (director/writer of spaced, shaun of the dead, hot fuzz, scott pilgrim etc) basically gave him free reign to sample his shit, so he made a full LP, pretty damn good imo.

    though, 'self taught' is easily his best

    Yeah this guy is quality. Never heard of him before either. Cheers Ricardo

    The Walk With Me video is shit though. What's with all the arm waving bullshit?

    Dr Syntax is sick. You know he's a librarian? This I find funny, but not all too surprising.
