Rapsploitation Sessions Certified Banger Review

The Rapsploitation Sessions Mix CD just got another review by Certified Banger!!!
Check it out below or on http://certifiedbanger.blogspot.com/2008/10/rapsploitation-sessions-va-jimmy-green.html

'Rapsploitation Sessions' - VA - Jimmy Green & Truth (compilation review)

Do not sleep on this release. One of a few compilation/mix CDs around this moment, this one won’t disappoint. Featuring tracks from artists who have performed at Ipswich’s only Hip Hop night Rapsploitation Sessions it’s clear that Truth and Jimmy Green have good taste in music.

The artist album tracks here are the cream of the crop: Mr. Drastick’s Chemo produced ‘Give it Up’, Def Tex’s ‘Bomber’, SonnyJim’s ‘Next Generation’, Reain’s ‘Rap Game’…the list goes on. It’s great to hear a load of good familiar tracks in sequence as chosen by someone else - saves me ripping and burning my own CD. From an album I’ve not yet heard; Precise Da Analyzer and Dubbledge get hilariously mean on ‘Neverland’ (“You’ll never be friends like Joey’s new sitcom”).

The non-album tracks stand up to the already released tunes and there are a couple of proper stand outs. Kosyne’s ‘A Tale of a Tenner’ proves that he’s one to watch as he spins a sordid yarn of crime concerning one ten pound note. Ghost, Verb T and Kashmere debut as Invisible Inc on the lovely end-of-night chill-out vibes of ‘Invisible Inc Theme’. Even host Truth steps up with ‘Body of Work’, produced by Jimmy Green, the CD’s DJ. The new Vinyl Dialect cut ‘Spray’ proves they’ve truly refined their sound whilst preserving the curveball rhymes.

I could go on describing the merits of each of the track on here, I’ve not even mentioned the tunes by Sir Smurf Lil’, Verb T, Stylah, Conspicuous and all the other heads on this release. ‘Rapsploitation Sessions’ is a varied but perfectly sequenced collection of some of the newer stars of UK rap. This one I really will bump repeatedly.

It’s out now on P.Found Music and can be gotten over at Suspect Packages for a barge-in £6.99. I’d buy it so you should too man.

IP1 Magazine Review Rapsploitation Sessions mix Cd review

If you're not from Ipswich....IP1 is a free magazine distributed around ipswich and it's surrounding area.....doing their bit to support local arts/music etc. Check out what they had to say about the mix CD in their next issue

Following the recent Rapsploitation live shows comes this new compilation CD, mixed by resident DJ/ Ipswich hip hop aficionado Jimmy Green and hosted by award winning MC Truth. If you missed out first time round, the idea was to bring the best of UK underground hip-hop and showcase it alongside the best Ipswich has to offer. And now here's the same deal on your CD player. The standard is blistering, with standout tracks Next Generation by Sonny Jim, Rap Game by Reain and the infectious soul rap One Of Them Days remix by Conspicuous the Coroner all proving that P.Found have great taste in music. Just as important, however are tracks from local boys Truth and Vinyl Dialect, which pack as much punch as any of them. The production's patchy in places but that's a minor fault considering these guys are single handedly putting Ipswich hip-hop on the map.
